Damn Gurl!

Today I've got ONE MORE Tough As Nails Lacquer to show you. This one is Damn Gurl :)- a fuschia and purple multi glitter top coat. This has many different shapes and sizes of fuschia and purple glitters (hex, shards, and all sorts!). For some reason, I didn't get many good shots of this one :( but the ones I have are pretty amazing. I layered two coats of this over Lime Crime's Pastelchio.

You can purchase this now HERE *as well as The Great Butter Rebellion and Shut Your Sweet Potato Pie Hole* :) and don't forget to like on Facebook and follow on Twitter!

Sweet Potatoes and Pies! another Tough As Nails Lacquer swatch/review

Today!! I've got another of the awesome Tough As Nails Lacquer's new polishes. This one has a forever loooong name, so I'll say it once and it will be abbreviated after. Shut Your Sweet Potato Pie Hole is a fall orange micro glitter with multiple sizes of orange, yellow, and gold hex glitters. SYSPPH went 90% opaque with two coats, and a third just to polish off some tiny naked spots.

Tough As Nails Lacquer- The Great Butter Rebellion

So, today I've got another Tough As Nails Lacquer to show you. This is one of her new polishes that hasn't yet released *ooooh special!* I was super excited to get this in the mail *along with two other unreleased polishes* These are supposed to debut soon in her Etsy shop. The Great Butter Rebellion is a SUPER packed gold microfine glitter with some larger glitters added in for dimension. This went on smoothly -unlike most packed glitters- and could have done with only ONE coat. I used two coats for pictures, and topped with Cult Nails Wicked Fast *my fave!*

This is so shimmery and sparkly that my macro wouldn't stay focused enough to get a good shot :)

Zoya Ornate Collection

Today I've got Zoya's new ornate collection to show you. These are all super awesome glitter and shimmery polishes.

Aurora: A full coverage sugarplum purple with holographic micro glitters. This went fully opaque with two coats.

Blaze: A cool toned mulberry with micro fine holographic glitters. This formula is the exact same as Aurora, just a different color. 

Electra: A super packed silver holographic bar glitter. I'm not a huge fan of bar glitters, because they're "hairy" and hard to control. This is three coats for 99% opacity :)

Logan: A yellow toned forest green with a foil-esque finish with blue-green shimmers. This went on with two even coats. 

Storm: A black cream packed with micro fine holographic glitters. This is the same formula as Aurora and Blaze.

Ziv: A yellow gold foil with accents of warm gold glitter flakes. This went on smoothly with two coats.

What do you think about all of these glitters? Do you have a favorite? Mine is a tie between Ziv and Blaze

 *these products were sent to me for review in exchange for my honest opinion*

The Hungry Asian- Strawberry

Today I've got another Indie polish to show you from The Hungry Asian! This is Strawberry- a red jelly-cream *hybrid-oooooooh-ahhhhhhh* with black glitters in it that make it look like puree'd strawberries. This goes on evenly with two coats -NO SPOTTING!!- and dries fairly quickly, and shiny enough to ALMOST not need a top coat *but I used one anyways because I feel naked without it*

Hope everyone likes this :) Does anyone else have/LOVE this polish?
