Zoya Awaken Monet Collection


Hi ladies, today I'd like to share with you swatches of the new to be released Zoya Awaken Monet collection.
While I'm not a shimmer polish type of girl, I felt like the formula for the shimmer polishes were easy to apply and the drying time didn't take too long either.

The two creme polishes that are in the collection opaque in two coats with drying time of about 5 minutes.

Have a look at these swatches I've done.

This one is Cole

This is Dillion

This is Rebel

This is Hudson

This is Brooklyn

This is Dot

Lastly this glitter is a top coat named Monet, I love this glitter formula, it's fun with its possession of colorful glitters. I love it over the Dot.

Sinful Colors- Cream Pink and Sprinkle

Hi ladies... Happy Hump Day!!

Today on my nails I am wearing as a base polish, Sinful Colors "Cream Pink". For some reason the appearance of the formula in the bottle looked like a swirl of a darker pink and light pink with a gold shimmer. However when it's applied I only see the darker pink. I tried my best to pick its essence up for the pics. 

For the glitter layover, I'm wearing a polish I've worn before (during a 30 day nail challenge last year). This splatter glitter polish is by LA Girl and it's a pink and white glitter mix called "Sprinkle".

Sinful Colors OH MY MOD Beatnik and Pink Poppy's

Hello polish world occupants lol, how's your week starting off? Good I hope....

On my nails I am wearing two polishes that were sent to me by my dear Stef over at Fairly Charming. This collection by Sinful Colors called "Mod In Bloom" and "Oh My Mod" which consists of Spring colored creme polishes. It looked too close to last year's Sugar Rush collection so I didn't want a lot of the colors. These can be found at Rite-Aid for $1.99. This polish I am wearing on my accent nail is called Pink Poppys, the formula is an easy apply; I've applied two coats.

On the rest of my nails is a green/teal colored polish by the sister collection to MOD IN BLOOM called "OH MY MOD". This is called Beatnick, I've applied two coats and no top coat in the first pic.

~SHE BAGS~ Amy Robinson

Hello everyone, I'm going to assume that you all had a safe, fun and/or relaxing weekend! If not, you have this weekend coming up to give it another shot :).

Today I bring to you another interview for my segment SHE BAGS , so far I've done 3 (I hope you've had the chance to check those out). 

Today's interview is of a young lady whom has been a friend to me for almost two decades... I cannot tell a lie, I have known for years about her addiction love for handbags and yes I condone it lol. Now, while I can't specifically narrow down the type of handbag brands she likes because it various, along with the colors and styles; she's always up to toting something that makes them together not just an outfit, but a power couple lol. 
What I can tell you is that..... SHE BAGS!!!

May I introduce you to Amy Robinson...... 

Name- Amy Robinson

Location- Atlanta, GA

There are plenty of women who don't like handbags, of course you aren't one of them; how important of an accessory is a handbag to you? and why? I love handbags.  They are the perfect accessory to make any outfit pop.  Biggest bonus is being able to carry around all my important items at the same time (phones, checkbook, wallet, many many lip glosses and lipsticks).

What handbag are you currently wearing? Today I have my red Halston Heritage's HUGE!

What is your most preferred handbag style (shoulder, satchel, hobo, crossbody etc.) and why? I love satchels and shoulder bags come in for a close 2nd place.  I have definitely become a handbag lady in my older age HA.  They are just more comfortable for me (since I like large ones) and are prominent when you walk into a room.

Top 5 items you must carry in your handbag? Phones, checkbook, wallet, lip gloss/lipstick and eye lash brushes.

What handbag is currently on your wishlist? LOTS of bags HA.  I would really like a nice grey leather satchel...brands don't matter as much to me anymore.  As long as it's a great quality bag I am ok with trying out new designers.

Besides a nice handbag, what other accessory is a important piece to your attire?  Shoes, it should also make an outfit pop.

How do you justify an expensive handbag purchase? I don't buy them that often so I look at my purchases as an investment.  They will last for years so they are well worth it!

What do you like most about the handbag you are wearing right now?  It's huge and red.  I get lots of compliments on it.

Lastly, finish this sentence: If (name a designer) asked me to design a handbag, I'd definitely use the material ________!  If Isabella Fiore asked me to design a handbag, I'd definitely use leather material with metal!  She only does leather bags and I am sure they would pop with metal accents on them.  Just a thought :)

In this pic above Amy, is rocking her Tory Burch satchel (it looks huge and necessary) LOL, love it!

*Just throw it in the bag* (curtain closing music chimes in). Another one checked off the list for banging and bagging LOL. Thank you Amy for sharing with us the type of bag lady you are. 

Check back with me here @ Nailmattic to find out who I bag next for an interview.

Metro Pollen-Tin Sugar Rim

Hi all, we are almost to the work week finish line.

On my nails today is another China Glaze "City Flourish" collection polish, this yellow/mustard colored polish is called "Metro Pollen-Tin". The formula was streaky with the first AND second coat :/. The third coat did an okay job covering all roads leading to opaque. 

The overlay of glitter is from Milani called "Sugar Rim". This polish reminded me of the floam glitter polish. I compare it to Salon Perfect's top coat glitters.

For My Sugar Rush Thistle Do Nicely

Hi all, 

Today on my nails I am wearing another one of China Glaze "City Flourish" polishes, it's called "Thistle Do Nicely". This is a vibrant pink polish that dries matte. I don't think I was able to catch the true color of this polish using my iPhone, but I had no problem with the formula application. While polishing I had Flip Flop Fantasy in mind, they have the same pop color to me.

On my accent nails I'm wearing this recently released glitters collection by Milani, this one is called Sugar Rush. This glitter has orange, green, silver and white circle glitters.

Outside in sun which changes it to a orange look.
