Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!

Free4You Promotion from Zoya

The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That seems to be a growing trend... O.o

Zoya Muse - Bubbly Summer 2014 Collection
Zoya Muse

Zoya Muse: described by PR as a "blue raspberry holographic fizz with a subtle vein of gold." I'm thinking it's the ocean blue mermaidish sister to Binx. Hoping. I've seen it featured in a lot of mermaid/undersea manicures. Definite seriotype material.

Zoya Carey - Feel Winter 2011 Collection
Zoya Carey

Zoya Carey: they call it "periwinkle grey." I was in a gray sort of mood, and my stash already has Tove and a Dove dupe. So I'm trying this shade of grey.

Zoya Nori - Wishes Holiday 2014 Collection
Zoya Nori


Zoya Nori: I must not have been in a dark polish kind of place when I ordered last year. Which just goes to show the difference in taste from year to year. I ordered Tomoko last year, and ended up using it waaaaay more than I ever thought I would! I needed more Pixie Dust in my life, and "Sapphire blue Magical Pixie Dust with holographic hex glitter" seemed like a good way accomplish that.

Zoya Thea - Wishes Holiday 2014 Collection
Zoya Thea


Zoya Thea: Described as a "deep amethyst Magical Pixie Dust with an orchid flash, packed full of party-ready holographic hex glitter." I've seen swatched of this and they are gorgeous. Must. Have. All. The. Sparkles! (Don't mind me...) 

Over the years, Zoya has started doing more of these awesome promotions, so it's not always just this one. But this one is a really good one! And if you're planning on ordering but haven't yet... the sale ends January 13th 11:59 EST so don't wait!!!

Did you order any polishes during the Free4You promotion? Let me know in the comments! Also, if you've got any of the shades I ordered, I'd love to hear how you like them!

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
