Zoya Bridal Bliss Collection

Hey everyone!
Zoya is gearing up for wedding season with this awesome collection of nudes and pastels.
These were sent to me by Zoya, and I'm excited to show you my swatches.

First thing you should know, I do have on a nude pink polygel base, but I do not feel it changed the shades of these polishes.  

Let's take a look at Zoya Bridal Bliss Collection.







All of my swatches are shown in two coats.  All the formulas were good and I did not experience any problems with formula or application.

ZOYA SNOW WHITE


ZOYA BLU


ZOYA ABBY
This is one of my favorite orchid shades ever!  How can you not love this shade?!


ZOYA RUE


ZOYA AVRIL
Out of all the opaque nudes, this is definately my favorite because it is the most flattering on my skintone.


ZOYA BELA
This is one of two nude sheers in this collection.  If I had to choose between the two, it would be this one because I like that it leans pinky nude.


ZOYA ERIKA


ZOYA LORETTA
This is the other sheer nude.  It's more of a nude and what I would choose for a "clean" nail look, or the base for a French tip.  Bela, to me, would be too pink for a true French tip look.


ZOYA LEIA
One coat over Loretta.  I've used this topper several times over different shades and this combination is my favorite.  If you have noticed the unicorn gel glitter around, this would be a similar effect but in polish form.  You're not going to get that smooth, chrome like finish, but the shimmer looks similar to me.


ZOYA LEIA AND LORETTA SANDWICH
I added another coat of Loretta over Leia to make the effect more subtle.  What do you think?  I really, really love how this one turned out.  Going back in my head, thinking about what I would want on my nails if I got married today, this is what I would choose.  Ten years ago, I chose French tips!  My tastes have changed so much!


ZOYA CHANTAL
Something happened here.  I think the combination of my skin tone plus the lights I'm using made this one pull way too mustardy.  Take this swatch with a grain of salt.  Or maybe it is this mustardy?  I guess I should ask around because I know this one is really popular with some of my nail friends.


ZOYA MCKENNA
This one isn't a flat creme as it does have some shimmer to it.  Unfortunately, you can't see that with my pic.

My daughter pulled out my "nail jewels" so she could have pretty nails for Kindergarten, so I put some on a matte McKenna while I was at it.



ZOYA BRIGHTON
I saved the best for last!  I absolutely loooooooove nude holos and this nude scattered holo is beautiful.

BOTTLE SHOT

I think this is a great bridal collection.  There's undertones that will suit a lot of people.  There are toppers, holos, and shimmers to combine to make a unique nude look.  There's even great polishes to make a pretty French tip.

The Zoya Bridal Bliss Collection is long wearing, vegan friendly, and has a 10 free formula.

You can purchase these through Zoya.com.

While I was typing this up, I received a delivery of the Zoya Thrive Collection.  I can't wait to show you!

Pixi Skin Treats and Lip Treats Review

Hey guys!  The month of January was a bit crazy for me and I am a bit behind in my posts.  The flu this year is awful and everyone in my home got it.  Hopefully, this is the last of illnesses for us for awhile.

I received something pretty exciting while I was sick.  This lovely box was sent to me by Pixi and it is so beautiful.




First up we have the Skin Treats.




The Rose Caviar Essence is for all skin types and is intended to hydrate, brighten, nourish and soften.  After cleansing and toning, press a coin size amount gently onto skin.  The capsules contain fresh rose and flower oils.




The Rose Flash Balm is a 3-In-1 Formula that is intended to moisturize, prime or to be used as a hydrating mask.  To prime, apply a thin layer. To use as a mask, apply a thicker layer.  This Balm is created with rose water and olive leaf extracts.



The rose scent is so amazing, light, and puts a smile on my face.  I have not used these for an extended period of time, but I will update you with my results after I have used this for a week or so.



Next is the Lip Treats.

These are a MatteLast liquid lip.  It has a full color payoff in a single stoke that is hydrating, long wearing and quick drying.




Swatches for you!



The liquid lips come with a petal applicator.




Really Rose is my favorite of the bunch and I have been using it quite a bit.  I do enjoy this formula, it does dry fast and doesn't dry out my lips, while still having a long lasting wear time.


My first impression is that I'm really impressed with this package.  I'm looking forward to seeing what type of results I will have with the Essence and Balm.  The Liquid Lips are a great formula and I fully intend to continue wearing my favorite, Really Rose.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are doing well and I'll have more reviews soon!

Madam Glam Candy Fluff Swatch and Review

Hey everyone!!!  Happy New Year!!!

December is always a roller coaster ride where I don't do many nail related activities.  Birthdays, Christmas, Anniversaries.....  So many celebrations!  I ended up keeping my nails painted in Madam Glam Cute Alert with Accents of Popular Boo.  No pics, sorry!

First post of the year, and I start with my favorite gel brand!

I have two of the Candy Fluff Collection provided for review.





MADAM GLAM JAW BREAKER
Fuzzy lilac in a pastel base.  
This is very cute and delicate.  Definately, a must have for the pastel lovers.


MADAM GLAM RED CARPET
Pastel pink in a nude/pastel base.
Just like JawBreaker, this one is also cute and delicate.


The Candy Fluff Collection is so cute.  I'll be honest, I didn't think I would like these because of the fuzz.  Anyone remember those Sally Hansen fuzzy sweater type nail polishes?  I hated those in the bottle, so I never bought them.  The Madam Glam Candy Fluff collection are more pastel toned and less dramatic than the Sally Hansens from a few years ago.

I love these so much, I'm definately wanting more, especially the pastel green one (Junior Mint).

I have loads of other Madam Glam swatches, just type in Madam Glam in my search bar!

Thanks for reading! 

I hope 2018 is full of fun nail polish purchases for you and me!!!!!!

Madam Glam Fall 2017 Gel Polish and Powder Review

Hello!  I've been away for a bit from the blog, but I have been posting to my Instagram account.  My four-year-old has been dealing with a rare disease and we've been doing doctors visits, blood work, traveling to and from appointments, and a bone marrow biopsy.  It's been difficult keeping up with all of it, blogging, and Instagram; but I'm determined to push forward!  In order to continue blogging, my posts may be limited in the amount I'm writing, but please feel free to ask questions if you need more information!

For this post, I have some of the Madam Glam Fall 2017 gels and a few of the powders that were recently released.

All of the following gel swatches are shown in two coats and I did not have any issues with them.

Press Sample

 Madam Glam Darkside


Madam Glam Call of the Wild

  Madam Glam Very Chic


Madam Glam Evening Teal


Madam Glam Bang Bang


Madam Glam Just Like Sand


Madam Glam Blue Shift
I applied this powder over a black base.  It is gorgeous and shifts from purple to blue.  I'll have more pics on my Instagram of this very soon in different lighting angles.  I absolutely love this powder!


Madam Glam Bohemian Chic


Madam Glam Unicorn Powder


I love the fall shades I was provided from Madam Glam and the powders are fabulous too!  I'll play around with the powders more with different bases and such.

Keep an eye out on Instagram for more looks using these products!

And, I couldn't help myself.  Once I saw Bang Bang, I knew what I was going to do....combine it with one of my favorite Madam Glam Smoothie Gels Pumpkin Juice:


These two shades go so well together for an awesome fall look!
