Color Club Matte Rouge

*Taps mic* this thing on? 

Ok good lol Good morning beauties, I know I haven't posted in a good minute over here. I have to be honest with y'all, I've been over at my other blog at Wordpress posting like a man woman. I've found that I get so much more love and interaction with my readers over there more than here. I've had this blog on blogspot longer than the WP blog. Nonetheless, I won't give up on this blog-- it's still my baby. 

So let's get right into the meat and potatoes of this post. These 4 polishes are from the newly released collection by Color Club called Matte Rouge. I had such high hopes for this collection, but I will shortly disappointed about the performance of the formula as I applied these. To give it to you straight, the formula is very difficult to work with, it is very thick and applies in blobs. Even when I try to apply a thin layer it still was thick as it was laying on my nails. 

When you did the first layer it dries to like a textured appearance which gives you like a wet dry sand look, by the looks of that you know that you're going to need a second and third layer. This picture is of my nails with two layers.

The only color that I didn't have that much difficulty with is the orange one. It wasn't AS thick, this one is called Perfect Pout.

This next one is the reason why I wanted these polishes, I loved how deep & grape purple the color is, but it is the thickest of the bunch--very difficult to apply. You can even see it on my nails that the layers are thick. This is Plum-P & Juicy.

This pink was okay to apply, still thick but it was more manageable. This is Spin The Bottle (I wanted to more than spin this bottle lol)!!

Lastly this pink (which looks almost red in my pics) was a mother effer to apply! Just like the purple it is super thick and no matter how I tried to apply just a thin coat it still came out thick & blobby. This is Mother Pucker (how ironic lol)! 

It's very unfortunate because I'm a huge fan of matte polishes (as I am of matte lipsticks as well). They retail for $8 of the Color Club website. However, this is just my experience with them, maybe I just got a bad batch; who knows. All I know is I'm over that whole swatch session lol.

Thanks for reading!!

Where the flowers blow

Hi beauties... I haven't forgotten the name of my blog, I know that nail polish is my first love when it came to beauty items... However I have a makeup obsession as well so can't we all just get along lol!!

Y'all I was too happy that I still have the water marble design technique on lock. These came out superb if you don't mind me tooting my own horn! All polishes used are from Bettina, but specifically the purple polish is called Believe. 

I am so smitten with my nails today I'm even going to show you my right hand!! 

Here's my right hand...

From Runway to Real Life! 
Two exciting new Zoya Nail Polishcollections arrive for FALL 2015


FOCUS (creams)

The Zoya Focus Collection features six strong, solid shades that anchor a look for fall as stand-alone shades. The densely pigmented cream formula features a unique, micro-grind pigment that allows for extra-smooth, streak-free application.

·          Charli (ZP807) - a dusty taupe cream with a hint of green, a perfect neutral.

·          Desiree (ZP806) - a classic sable brown cream that has just enough gray to keep it cool in tone.

·          Hannah (ZP805) – a clear, classic red cream with a balanced (neutral) undertone.

·          Janel (ZP804) - a deep red cream with a rich warm undertone.

·          Lidia (ZP803) - a rich eggplant cream with a blackened purple base and just a hint of red resulting in a color that is wearable for most skin tones.

·         Sia (ZP802) - a true, royal blue cream. NOTE: This is a highly pigmented shade - make sure to apply a base coat to prevent staining.

FLAIR (metallics)

Six, jewel toned liquid metal shades. The unique, micro-grind metallic pigment of the Zoya Flair Collection is fully blended into a vibrant base, creating the effect of brilliant colored melted metal!

·          Tris (ZP813) - a blackened, brushed nickel liquid metal.

·          Cinnamon (ZP812) - a classic bronze liquid metal, originally designed for Zang Toi NYFW F/W15.

·          Aggie (ZP811) - a gold holo-flip, liquid metal with bronze micro glitter. Sheer enough for layering with one coat or fully opaque in three coats!
