Zoya Solange, Zoya Beatrix, Zoya Destiny

Happy Memorial Day to all in the U.S. as we remember those who gave their life in service to our country. To those outside the U.S., Happy Monday.

So today I have a trio of Zoya PixieDust Polishes. All three of these polishes are pretty sheer, but they have good application and good coverage with a couple of coats.

I've also realized that I seem to be especially attracted to this color combination, I seem to use it quite a bit.

Solange - This is a yellow/gold matte glitter

Beatrix - This is a light orange matte glitter

Destiny - This is a darker reddish orange matte glitter

No top coat used

Layla Flash Black

Well the weekend was so busy that I had naked nails all Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday, and didn't get them polished until late Sunday night. But whoa was it worth the wait, cuz holo,holo, holo. We all know how much I love linear holos, and this one is picture heavy this one turned out so nice.

I really like the Layla holos, they have some of the best holo effect and to that, that its black and oh yea. So here they all are.

OPI Vesper

This one is just a complete disaster. Even though I did a lot of clean up on this one, I still ended up with a halo on the cuticles.

OPI - Vesper - This is from the Bond Girls liquid sand collection. I did three coats here, and its way too many. This is actually a purple liquid sand with black glitter, which at three coats you can't see the black glitter, but although with two coats you can see the purple color and black glitter, its still way too sheer, so not sure how to handle the problem with this one, it might actually be nice layered over white.

No topcoat

Zoya Rekha

This one is kind of messy, but I was in a hurry.

Zoya Rekha - This is an older Zoya polish. A dark red creme. It has very good coverage and application. A very nice red indeed.

Orly Sparkling Garbage

Once again its seems like real life has intruded on all of the fun, and I'm once again way behind on manis. Unfortunately not all of them turned out as well as I had hoped and I cut up my fingers working on files at work but, here we go.

Orly - Sparking Garbage - This is from Orly's Mash Up Collection. This is very sheer jelly like green base with scattered holo glitter. It took four gloopy coats to get to this point. I was really excited about this polish in the bottle but it was more difficult to apply then I thought, but it does have super awesome sparkle.

So today we had a Cinco De Mayo party at work. I'm the event committee and we wore this funny little "bopper" headbands, so of course I had to my nails to match my "bopper" Also, I wanted to try out one of my new OPI Bond Girl Liquid Sand polishes I go the other day. So here it is.
