Zoya’s Taylor

Zoya’s Taylor

Wednesday at 4:15 PM: A decent formula, totally opaque and even coverage in two coats. This color is on the warm side of neutral, a definite tan. If you prefer beige, or a deeper shade, you might prefer Chantal (which is a bit thinner) or Flynn (which is also tan, but a little deeper than Taylor.)

Color Club’s Poetic Hues

Color Club’s Poetic Hues

Wednesday at 1:15 PM: Near-matte finish, excellent formula, and a fast dry time! This color is near-white, and isn’t chalky or thin like so many other white polishes seem to be. This works so well with nail stamping, even with my super-fine detail patterns.

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Tuesday at 2:24 PM: Kristina over at Simplified Glam has nominated (tagged? :) ) me for the Liebster Award...a week ago. It only took me that long to get my entry written and posted.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Handful of Treats collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Femme’s Halloween 2012 release, with six eyeshadows and one illuminator (which I think could be used as an eyeshadow anyway…) I ended up selecting Naga Mask and Masquerade for purchase from the main collection before…

Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Silk Naturals’ Juiced

Monday at 1:15 PM: This is a paler color than I thought it might be. It looks a little like a pineapple smoothie - nearly white but with a definitely yellow tint, and a soft, almost plush pearl finish.…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Femme Fatale Cosmetics’ Witchwood

Monday at 10:15 AM: Really hard to classify this color! It’s like a muted, deeper version of BareMinerals’ Fire Opal. The base color is kind of a murky orange-ish - think “faded spices” - and the yellow/green duotone shimmer…

Beauty from the Earth’s Grape Leaves

Beauty from the Earth’s Grape Leaves

Sunday at 1:15 PM: The green shimmer almost overwhelms the brown in this color. Think of it as an intensely amped-up Riddle, tilted in favor of the duotone top color rather than the base color. (And this one isn’t…
