Hi! Have You Tried 'Cool Aid'?

Hey there! I know I've totally been M.I.A.  Let's just say I've been a little busy. :)  I haven't stopped buying nail polish, so I hope to resume sharing my purchases here when I finally get the lighting thing right, and the camera thing right, and the nail shape thing right....anyway, I want to very quickly show you My Kind of Cool Aid from Cult Nails.

What's missing from this pic is the shimmer, which I swear is apparent in person, but kind of absent in the photo. If I can capture that better, I'll post updated pics.

Zoya Fall 2012 - Suri and FeiFei + Holiday 2012/13 Pre-Order

Zoya Suri Zoya FeiFei

A couple of weeks long time ago, I placed an order for two of my faves from Zoya's Fall 2012 collection.  I gave you a sneak peek here, but now I want to show them off in all their glory.

First up is Zoya Suri.

"Medium blue-toned purple with delicate red and blue shimmer and a smooth metallic finish."

First up is Zoya Suri. I LOVED IT, and I took a ton of pics to show you why. I picked out a couple that I thought were representative of the bunch. I'm warning you, she's pretty!

Next, I need to get Song, Elisa and Daul. Not to mention Zoya's Holiday 2012/2013 Ornate collection is now available for pre-order.  They promise the collection will adorn your nails in jewels.

Just like last year's fall collection, I'd like to have all of these. Storm especially is screaming, "Buy me, buy me!"

Until next time, stay polished!

China Glaze is Still Magnetic

Calling all magnetic polish lovers! China Glaze is back for a second round with Magnetix II, a new collection of magnetic nail lacquers.

In this collection:
  • Sparks Will Fly - Chic cobalt blue
  • Gold Fusion - Rich gold

  • Get Charged - Dark lavender
  • Positively in Love - Gorgeous magenta

If you're not quite sure what to make of magnetic polish, have a closer look:

I have yet to give magnetic nail polish a try. I wonder if the wear is the same if you wear it as is, without using the magnet. Has anyone tried that?

Sorry, I don't have any swatches, but The PolishAholic does!

For more details, check out the company's full press release after the break.

NOTD: Zoya Megan

Zoya Megan

Zoya Megan comes from the Feel Collection, released last winter. The color is described as a full coverage, taupe gray cream. Given the description, I was surprised by the lilac tones, but its a really nice polish nonetheless. Here, I started with a coat of Zoya Anchor followed by two coats of the polish to achieve full coverage.


Previously, I told you about a three for one deal on clearance OPI at Wal-Mart.  Here's a quick look at the ones I purchased.

DEAL ALERT: OPI at Walmart

If you like OPI, you need to head to the salon at Walmart.  That's where I purchased the three OPI's pictured above for the price of one - $8.50 plus tax!  Yodel Me On My Cell is from the Fall 2010 Swiss Collection, Dulce de Leche is from the South American Collection for Summer 2002 (! wow, that's old) and My Private Jet is from the 2007 Night Brights Collection.  These are old polishes, yes, but they're new to me and think I got a great deal.

If you're not looking for older polishes, the salon has another deal going for current collections - buy one get one for half price.  I hope you all are able to find some great deals at your local stores!
