This is I Love Nail Polish Sirène. This teal-y chrome shifts to blue, violet and red. It’s even more amazing in person! My swatch is three coats.

So Cool

 20140108 misa icy river

I have the Misa Winter 2013/2014 Collection to show you today. The “We’re cool. So cool. This is how cool.” Collection consists of three wintery blue-based shades…perfect for the season! As I’ve come to expect, the Misa formula was flawless. And these colors are so pigmented and rich.

This is Misa Icy River. It’s a dense blue-leaning purple. The formula was stellar. My swatch is two easy coats.

Algae

20140119 ilnp reminisce

I Love Nail Polish Reminisce is a bright green that shifts to a deep teal then blue. The finish is seriously chrome. I wore this one out and got stopped three times…I kid you not. Again, I used three coats.

Natural

Zoya normani 

Hi guys today I have the Zoya Natural Collection to share with you all. I didn’t think I’d like this collection at first because it looked pretty boring but I ended up really liking the whole collection!

For some reason I had a hard time coming up with accurate color descriptions for these shades so I will be using Zoya’s color descriptions!

Zoya Normani, 2 coats A sauble mauve cream. So pretty although I think I may have a color or two that is very similar to this one!

For the Emperor

 Imperial1wm

piCture polish Imperial is a vibrant neon people base packed with heavy blue shimmery flakes and small coppery gold hexagonal glitters. Pictures can’t do this one justice because it’s even more vibrant and beautiful in person. Definitely a must-own in my opinion.

The formula was pretty great; it was nice and creamy and two coats provided perfect coverage. It does dry down semi-matte due to the neon pigment, so be sure to add top coat if you want a shiny finish.

Stripey

On my middle and ring nails, I started with a base of OPI This Gown Needs A Crown, and on my outer nails I used the textured OPI It’s Frosty Outside. Then, I taped off my nails and painted with Essie Licorice.

Collaboration

PiCture pOlish bewitch 1

piCture pOlish Bewitch is a purple/brown back with a strong golden shimmer and a sprinkle of holo. This is a collaboration with Aire of The Obsessed, you can read her post about Bewitch here. I really like this one, it’s complex. It builds up to looking brown but it starts out looking purple…it was a surprise on the nail which was fun! The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
