New Year's Eve Nail of the Day: Fireworks


I just have a quick Nail of the Day for you today. Simple "fireworks" nail art for New Year's Eve!

Adios 2014, bring on a NEW YEAR. Please, for the love of all that is holy, bring on a new year already!


Base is Zoya Natty and the "fireworks" are polishes from Chaos and Crocodiles Secret Agent Collection. I tried for a lighter center using acrylics, but that was pretty much a fail. Too much watering down LOL!

What's on YOUR nails as you ring in the new year?

Hope everyone has a SAFE and happy holiday!

*all polishes in this post were sent to me for review

Zoya Naturel Satins - Press Release

Press Release
*These products are Cruelty Free 


The next generation of Zoya Naturel is almost here! 

Introducing, Zoya Naturel Satins, a collection of six new, neutral nail polish colors in an ultra-wearable, low-sheen, chic satin finish. A hybrid between matte and glossy polishes, the new Zoya Satin* formula provides opaque coverage and is longer lasting than traditional matte shades. The flawlessly smooth finish hides imperfections and creates a luxurious, satin finish nail look.

So, remember when I raved about Zoya's Naturel and Naturel Deux being two of my favorite Zoya Collections? Well these are the same great family of shades but in a satin finish!!!

Leah: Lavender tinged taupe, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish.

Rowan: Creamy suede taupe, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish.

Sage: Mossy sage green, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish.

Tove: Misty slate grey, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish. 

Brittany: Rose mauve cream, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish.

Ana: Light toasted almond, exclusive Zoya Satin* finish.

*Zoya Satin is not intended to be worn with a top coat. For best results: Prep nail with Zoya Remove Plus Nail Polish Remover, apply base coat and finish with 2 thin coats of any Zoya Satin Nail Polish.


Rowan and Tove? Come to momma!!! And probably Leah. What do you think? Favorites? 

I think I'm most excited for the Satin Seal Top Coat though (see below) since the Zoya Matte Velvet Top Coat is the best ever.

Available 01/15/15!

$9 (US), Available in top salons, spas and on


COMING SOON - Zoya Satin Seal Topcoat!
Turn any color into an elegant Satin finish beauty with just one coat!

piCture pOlish Unicorn - Swatches, Review and Nail Art

*This product is Cruelty Free 

Well, I guess I liked this shade so much I swatched it twice!

Yes, I swatched it in October when I did Sizzle and Forget-Me-Not - and then forgot to show you!! Well tonight I'm fixing that. Unicorn is a Collaboration shade with my "nail crush" Brit Nails! So I knew I'd have to have hers.

piCture pOlish


Yes, you know I had to go there! It was just begging for 2 things. A matte top coat and a UNICORN HORN!

Don't worry though, I have real swatches...after the jump.

My Favorites of 2014 - Indie Polishes, Indie Collections and My Brand of the Year

Press Samples and 
purchased by me Polishes 

My Favorites of 2014 - Indie Polishes

Basically this is going to be just a list. I'm all talked out! (shut up Cindy and Ashley)

To see my Favorite Polish of 2014 (with a GIVEAWAY) you'll have to come back at 4 pm CST because that one gets a post all by itself.

So I tried to do 14 for 2014, key word being TRIED and we're starting with the polish that basically was the front-runner for Favorite Polish of 2014 all the way up until the last the Number 2 position is: Elevation Polish Shillin Stone Forest!

I'm not sure why this one captured my heart above all other Elevations and all other polishes period this year. But it did. Perfect grey, perfect balance of shimmers and micro-flakes.


The number 3 slot is also Elevation Polish - Sunset Among the Palms! It was a close one here as well because she came out with the Hawaiian Punch collection and filled it full of awesome. It was down to Bromeliad and Sunset Among the Palms but Sunset won by a nose frond.


Number 4 is Pipe Dream Polish VIP Pass. Stunning, unique, and PERFECT formula. It now occurs to me that while I posted on IG about it, I didn't ever do a blog post. I even marbled with it! I've worn it several times and just assumed I'd blogged it! Oops!


Number 5 is a England Crown of Thistles


The rest are in no particular order but they won my heart and they're what I found myself reaching for more than once, which is saying something.

Girly Bits Darkly Dreaming


Darling Diva The Alchemist


Different Dimension Thriller


KBShimmer Mars-ala


Superficially Colorful Giggly


Literary Lacquers Lurid Fog


Pahlish Eleven's Hour is Now Over


Colors by Llarowe Human Nature


Honorable Mentions because you know I really FAIL at narrowing and these deserve acknowledgment for sure.

KBShimmer Right as Reign


KBShimmer Radiant Orchid


Pahlish Balneario


Pahlish Petropolis -  yeah I totally stole Shannon's photo because for some reason, I haven't blogged this one either! I think wearing it so often makes me think I already blogged it. Oops again!


Darling Diva You're Grounded - this is ONLY on the Honorable Mentions list because it was a custom/gift and you can't buy it. But it's definitely one of my favorites of 2014!


Girly Bits Too Hot for Pants


Colors by Llarowe Sherwood Forest 


Colors by Llarowe MJ's Jacket


Paint Box Polish Sugar Spun Quills


And Girly Bits Touch My Heart - again, it's only in the Honorable Mention category because it was a special custom/gift for me just because and you can't buy it. And she named it Touch My Heart because my favorite singer died this year - Ray Price. Touch My Heart is one of my favorites of his. It was truthfully one of my favorites in 2014. And maybe ever.


NEWCOMER AWARD goes to Tami Beauty because they blew me away with the very first polish - Skibo Sunset. This is a Brand to Watch for 2015 for sure!


Favorite Collections:

KBShimmer Spring 2014

Elevation Polish Hawaiian Punch Collection

a England Elizabeth and Mary Collection


And finally, my Overall Favorite Brand of 2014...this includes indie brands and mainstreams.

Elevation Polish

Was there a doubt? Her polishes are so unique and beautiful. The formula is always perfect. And you can tell there's no "chasing the fads" going on here. She's setting them. And I always admire people who just do their own thing. She seems to see things in her own unique way. Sort of like Vincent Van Gogh saw the world and its beauty through his own special filter. I know a lot of people who have their own special filters. I suspect most of us have them. But she's able to translate her filter for us so that we can see as well. That's the talent. And I feel privileged to get a glimpse through that wondrous filter now and then.


And I can't leave out my favorite Top Coats!

HK Girl from Glisten and Glow is my Go-To top coat!


Well there are some of my favorite Indie polishes of 2014! And I'm pretty sure in this mound of polishes yet to be swatched would be a few more that would make the list. But you have to cut it off somewhere, don't you?

So how many of MY favorites do you have? What are your favorites this year?

I still have a few more end-of-year posts for you coming - My Favorite Polish of 2014 with a Giveaway, of course. Will be posted at 4 pm CST TODAY! Also on the way is a round-up of my favorite main stream polishes this year and one with My Favorite Beauty Products I've been using this year. I've recently done a Favorite Nail Art post, so we might skip that one.

But Stay Tuned! Because in addition to all of that I have a TON of beautiful polishes and collections for you that I'm still working on.
