Essie, Day 2

Ha, I did it!  Two days in a row!  Today I have two more Essie polishes for your viewing pleasure.  these are really great colors and I think you are going to like them!

Sexy Divide is a shimmering purple.  It's a little smokey and has a lit from with in feel to it. 

Dive Bar was a bit of a pain for me to really capture how amazing it really is in true life.  This is a blackened turquoise shimmer.  It is gorgeous and I highly recommend finding this bad boy for your collection!

Hello Nail'd & Polish'd readers!  I am not going to bore you with excuses or apologies, just blog about some beautiful Essie nail polishes :)

The three polishes I have today I swatched months and months ago.  They are Essie, so the application and wear was exceptional.  The creme colors are beautiful and if you can find them, they are the perfect shades to ease you back into to the amazing dark fall colors I am seeing for the Fall collections! 

School of Hard Rocks is a dark sage green creme.

Size Matters is a beautiful cranberry creme.

Bobbing for Baubles is a dark charcoal blue creme.

Thank for looking!

Update~June 2012

Hi all!  I thought I needed to send out a big 'hi' to everyone and let you all know that I am still alive!  It's been quite a year for me and my family and Nail'd & Polish'd has fallen through the cracks.  I'm not going to bore you with the boring details, but I want to thank you for all of the support you've given me and this blog.  I am hopeful that I can devote more time to Nail'd & Polish'd in the coming weeks, but it is summer and I need to keep these kid busy :)  Plus, we just got back from camping and my nails are thrashed!  But when they look pretty again, I hope to start swatching & blogging again!

Zoya~Fleck Effect

Don't adjust the device you are viewing this on... it is me, Cindy and I am actually posting!  Life has consumed me lately and I apologize for my lack if posts and all around involvment in the nail polish and blogging world. I thought this post was perfect, since I feel like a total flake lately,  Zoya's amazing Flakies!!!  Fleck Effect from Zoya is 3 seriously flaky, and I mean that in a very good way, amazing polishes!  The Fleck Effects collection can be worn alone or over your favorite polish to give it a different look. 

Chloe is a pretty pink base with iridescent green and gold mylar flecks.

Opal is a sea foam green with iridescent green mylar flecks.

Maisie is a bright blue with iridescent green mylar fleckes.

Shortly after I swatched these pretties, I cut my finger pretty good.  So I will spare you the nastiness of my poor cut finger and show you how amazing the Fleck Effects are layered over other polishes.  Behold, the polish wheel.

How are you all enjoying Zoya's beautiful Fleck Effect?

Zoya~True Part 2

Today I have they other half of Zoya's Spring 2012 collection, True.  Zoya polishes and lot of other great Zoya products can be found here.  Also, don't forget to enter my Holo 2012 giveaway!

If the first three polishes were a little tame for you, these three are little more spicy!

Skylar is a muted sky blue with silver micro glitter.

Tru is a grape purple with golden and magenta micro glitter.

Lotus is a dusty purple with pink micro glitter.

So, what do you think, is True as must have collection, must have a few, or a pass?  I love this collection and is a must have for me.  You never know when you need a good neutral and True has several.  Thanks for looking!

Zoya~True Part 1

True is Zoya's Spring 2012 collection of 6 beautiful and classic shades.  I always love the 'early' Spring collections.  They are usually light and pretty and a major contrast from all the glitz and glamour of the Holiday collections we have be wearing.  True is just that-a delicate mix of polishes that range from creamy beige to gorgeous purple.  This collection has a color (or 6) for everyone.  Today I have the first 3 of this collection.  These and a bazillion other gorgeous polishes can be found here for $8 each.  Make sure you follow Zoya on Twitter and Facebook too.  They have these fairies who are very good to their followers and you never know what mischief they are up to :)

Cho is a creamy pale yellow and I mean pale.  The coverage and finish on all of these was amazing.  Not streaky or chalky at all.

Farah is a creamy light beige or latte color.

And then there is Bevin.  What an amazing color!  Bevin is a light sage green creme.  Gorgeous!!!

True is a beautiful collection of polishes that would make your fingers very pretty and happy.
