Easter Challenge: Bunnies

So for todays challenge it's all about the bunnies and when I think of bunnies I think of Little Bunny Foo Foo and Peter Rabbit. So here is what I came up with for my bunnies...


I tried to do somewhat realistic bunnies in the grass but my one bunny looks like a dog my husband said but I still kinda like him(the bunny and my husband). I used Zoya polishes again for this mani, I used Gemma, Purity, Logan, Meadow, and Raven.

So what do you think of my bunnies? Do you think the tall one looks like a dog? Make sure to check out the other cute bunnies from these fabulous ladies!!

Easter Nail Art Challenge

So for the past 2 weeks I have been learning about gel top coats and swatching the OPI euro collection, so needless to say I've been rocking each color for a day and so and there are 12 beautiful colors in the collection... hence the reason it seems like I've been missing but I have to take a break and start working on some festive nail art so I'm doing a challenge created by one of my favorite dolls Galactic Lacquer.

So today is all about the grass or flowers so here's what I've come up with...

I used all Zoya polishes, Tracie, Logan, Maura, Purity, Piaf, Julie and Meadow. I did a simple design because I've learned how to appreciate the simple thing especially when I don't have a clue when Roman is about to wake up so I didn't want to take chances. Make sure to check out these amazing ladies grass and flower designs!!

Zoya Pixie Dust Love!!

So I'm going to jump right it, Zoya's PR sent me their Pixie Dust Collection to show to you dolls and review. This had to be the hardest collection to swatch because every time I swatched a color I didn't want to take it off!! At first I didn't know what to think about the whole textured polish movement but the Zoya fairies did not disappoint in fact they've made me a textured polish addict! So enough with an introduction check out these babies!!!


First up we have NYX a deep sky blue.

This color brings back memories, this was the exact color and texture of my Middle School 6th grade dance. I honestly wish you could see these in person because the pictures can't capture the true beauty of these polishes they are amazing when they move it's like actual pixie dust on your nails.
 Next up we have Chyna, an absolutely stunning textured red that makes your jaw drop and go whoa!


When I tried this I had to leave it on my nails for a couple of days because there was no way I was going to take it off. It reminds me of pomegranates and raspberries, it just makes my mouth water. I'm even happier to say that this mani held up 3 full days of the torture I put it through(washing dishes).

 Now we have Vespa, a light green kind of a sea foam green.
This is a really relaxing textures green. It's another in person stunner.

Up next is London, a grey, that I can't help but think that they could be talking about London's skies.
At first I didn't know how I'd feel about this color because I don't normally wear grey just to wear on it's own, but Zoya has made me see things totally different. London worked for me, the texture really balanced out the color for me.

Now we've come to Dahlia, a black textured stunner.
At first I was like oh another black, but Zoya did so well with these textures and Zoya just has so many stunning blacks polishes like Raven and Storm and this is no exception.

Last, but certainly not least is Godiva, a beautiful taupe.

I don't know what I love more about this color the fact that the name makes me think of Godiva chocolate or that fact that the color is so soft and elegant.

So what do you think of Zoya's Pixie Dust collection? Do you love them as much as me? If you do then I know you can't wait for their summer collection can you say hot hot hot!!!? For more info make sure to like their Facebook and Follow them on Twitter!

Priti NYC Orient Express

Today I have the Priti NYC Orient Express to show you and they are AMAZING! Each color was inspired by beautiful sites in Europe or things that just scream Europe so it's a must needed mini Europe vacation on my nails. So lets get this vacation going!

First thing I think of when I think of Europe(besides for the guys and food) is the lush landscape it's full of life and alot of hanging vines, you will see them up and down houses, walls, and anything they can grow on, but it holds a old school charm. Which brings us to Gloire De Marengo, an outstanding metallic Ivy green.


This ivy green has the most beautiful shimmer and the application was flawless, only one coat was needed and I added a top coat to seal the deal.


Next up we have Comptess De Paris, a beautiful pearly caramel.



I love how warm this color is, again application was flawless, they all are flawless, I used 2 coats and a top coat.


Next up we have the beautiful Lady Betty Balfour which is a beautiful royal purple inspired by the flower.


I can't honestly tell you how beautiful this color is, I have no words. It's shimmer is amazing along with it's application. This polish is the reason why I now love this flower!


Now last but certainty not least is Cardinal De Richelieu, this has to be my favorite only because I've been searching and searching for a deep rich fuchsia color.


I love the fact it's a one coat cream that has a squishy look to it. It has to be one of my favorite colors this season hands down.


I love Orient Express collection for the colors and the formula. Priti NYC has some amazing colors and beautiful collections. If you have fallen in love with these colors and have to have them or want to check out their other amazing collections check out their website. Also follow them on twitter and like their facebook like me to stay in the know with their latest collections.


*These products were sent to me from a PR for a honest review, all opinions are mine and mine alone.
