There Aren't Any Good Mitzi Puns...

Eek! It's been so long! I can't believe I did that, sorry! However, I have the absolute best remedy.
What is that, you ask? Well, a gorgeous polish; of course!
Here today we have the gorgeous Zoya Mitzi : aka bottle of awesomeness. Mitzi here is a grossly-beautiful yellow green. Totally weird description, I know, but it is. It's one of those ugly yet pretty things, so it goes very well with me (a little self deprecating humour never hurt anyone ;D ). It's part of the Zoya Matte Collection, which only makes me want me want Phoebe more...
Anyways... Mitzi is very quick drying, and quite self leveling, which is a very nice surprise :) this was three coats, no topcoat to change the lovely finish. Artificial lights.
So guys, you enjoying the polish as much as me? Its weird, because I think I'd not like it, if it wasn't for the fact it's matte.

Nail Polish Revvvolution!

Hello everyone! Today I have something special to show you. Not just Revolution, but Revvvolution!
Today I'll be showing you one of Color Club's older weaker but still just as gorgeous holos. This is Revvvolution, a scattered charcoal-black holo. This is gorgeous, and in sunlight the holo really shines.
Unfortunatly though, the polish gods were not looking down upon my nails and in the gloomy Canadian weather, I did not manage to get a natural light picture :( I don`t know if it`s just me but I actually love that grainy look of holos in the shade. I don't know, is this weird? Am I the only one?
This polish was smooth and had no problems. Theres the reason I love Color Club so much. They have so many amazing colours, and the formulas are always so nice. This is three thin coats ( I wore this for a little, and got some tipwear so I added a third). The thumb is done with a cheap striper in an unknown colour and brand. Sorry!
Do you love Color Club too? Win a bottle of their gorgeous flakie Snow-flakes in my giveaway!

Burfday Nails!!!

Hello! Soo, as you may know, the 7th was my birthday :D I figured I'd show off my lovely layered mani I wore.
First up is two coats of Essence Nude It! This has some what killed the lemming for OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons/ Zoya Avery, though, really this is discontinued and only 5 mls, so I should grab a bottle of Zoya or OPI...
Anyways 2 smooth and easy coats, artificial light. Also, excuse my sad broken pointer finger (**sobs uncontrollably**).

Hmm, what should I add to this lovely, delicate subtle nude? HOLOGRAPHIC OF COURSE!!! Nothing **fixes** a delicate subtle mani like crazy rainbows!
This is one coat of Glitter Gal Silver 3D, in artificial light- it's way stronger in daylight btw. Blurry to show the holo off.

Okay, now what else is there to put on but BIRTHDAY GLITTER!!! And yes, I call these types of glitter birthday glitter, blame Deborah lol. This one is super duper awesome 'cuz it smells like Sugar Cookies and I'm absolutely obsessed with scented glitters. There are waaaayyyyyy not enough. I mean almost every company has scented polish and glitter polish, so how hard is it to put them together?!?! So far these Claire's Christmas minis and Color Club's Scentsuos (which I am crazy lemming. Cough cough birthday present ;) are the only ones I've seen out there.
Here's two light coats of Sugar Cookie, no placement. More fake lighting :D

Hope you enjoyed my crazy birthday nails! Now all I'm thinking about is whether they could make scented holos... Hmmm....
Do you like this mani? Are you a fan of scented polishes? Leave a comment! It's worth an entry in my giveaway too. Bonus!
