Zoya Enchanted Collection – Winter/Holiday 2016

Zoya Enchanted Collection – Winter/Holiday 2016



If there is one thing I look forward to just as much as my mom’s Christmas tamales, it’s the Zoya holiday collection. You may think I’m exaggerating but I am not–I love the holiday collections with a passion. This year is no exception because there are some lovely shades that I’m sure many of us will love. I have a LOT of swatching to get through before the end of the year so I’m hoping to pump out a lot of these reviews in the last week and a half because I do not want to start off 2017 with a backlog. I’m having a nail crisis currently because I’m just so unhappy with the length of my nails. I have to really find a happy medium between swatch length and work length. I am lucky to have long nail beds so my nails will normally look longer than they are, but any length bothers me. I love having super short nails, but I think that my swatches look better when I have some length. Ugh…I’ll just have to deal with it and cut my nails way down to a length I’ll be happy with. Anywho, let’s get back to the pretty polish. Check out my swatches of the Zoya Enchanted Collection below.

Zoya Saint

Zoya Olivera

Zoya Waverly

Zoya Elphie

Zoya Lorna

Zoya Alice

Let me just break this down for you: you need these. I have always been a big fan of the PixieDust formula and the four included in this collection are gorgeous. My pictures don’t do just to Saint which I think is the prettiest and most delicate shade from this collection. I really don’t have any complaints about this collection which is kinda new for me–Zoya really has a winner here. Have you picked up any of these beauties? Do you have any favorites? You can pick up the entire Zoya Enchanted Collection on zoya.com for $60 or $10 each. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!


KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection 2016




Hi there! I’m not going to say happy Monday because I’m feeling pretty miserable right now. I was looking forward to going out trick-or-treating with my nephews tonight, but I got a pretty wicked cold so I’m going to have to sit this one out. I’m also staying home from work which I hate doing because I always feel like I fall so behind on my work. Oh well…I just hope that an extra day of rest will help. Today I have for you some shades from the soon to be released KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection for 2016. This is a massive 16 piece collection that is sure to please you. I have 8 of the 16 shades to share with you. Let’s check out my swatches below.

Let’s start with the good: the holos in this collection are beautiful. I love how saturated they are and the formula on them is everything you have come to expect from this brand. The one polish I did not care for was Yeti Or Not. The formula was so thick that I couldn’t not get it to apply smoothly. I applied 3 coats to try to get it opaque, but you can still see some patchy areas. I think that for a polish like this, it would be best to layer it over a solid color. It is a pretty polish and has the potential to look beautiful as a topper–but I won’t wear it on its own again. Overall, I think this collection is beautiful and there is something for every taste. The KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection will launch 11/1/2016 so make sure to head on over to kbshimmer.com to pick your favorites. Thank you for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

P.S. Please have a safe Halloween!
