Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016

Hi guys! Today I have the Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 collection for you! I'm really excited about this one because it has FOUR Pixie Dust polishes and I love the pixies!  It also has two color-flip metallics.  I didn't have any real issues with any of them.  My brush for Lorna was a little wonky but that can happen from time to time.  The other polish I had a small issue with was Saint, one of the color flip metallics.  It's just a tad sheer for my taste. I swatched with two coats as always and you could still see some VNL.  She isn't sheer enough for layering though. On the other hand, the other color flip, Olivera, was totally opaque in one coat. My favorite ended up being Alice.  It's a lovely purple with some pink shifts in it.  The darker two of the pixie's looked like a deep, rich velvet on my nails and while Elphie fell in between she's still stunning and perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  So without further a do...here they are! (Descriptions below provided by Zoya.com. All shades are swatched with two coats and no top coat except where noted.)

Alice by Zoya can best be described as a captivating periwinkle with magenta and blue sparkles in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Elphie by Zoya can best be described as a bewitching emerald green with a sugary green sparkle in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.
Lorna by Zoya can be best described as a luscious berry with a sugary sparkle in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.


Waverly by Zoya can best be described as a brilliantly deep sapphire blue with blue sparkles in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula.

Olivera by Zoya can best be described as a spellbinding color-flip metallic with an indigo base and a green and purple shift. This is one coat of Olivera.

Saint by Zoya can best be described as a whimsical color-flip metallic with a periwinkle base and magenta shift.

Which one is your favorite?

A tale of triangles...

I'm still having tons of fun playing with my new MoYou London plates.  Even though I have a clear stamper now, it's sort of broken in a way and as a result I have to really work to use it the way I want to.  I'm still waiting for the MoYou Crystal Clear one but in the mean time I do think the one I have has improved my stamping placement and helped me to make designs SO much faster.  For this one I just did some shapes! I got bored with it about halfway through the week and I matted it to change it up which I think I preferred to the original finish.  Also I apologize for the picture quality. My computer straight died last week. Like literally DIED. I took it for repairs and they told me it was  hopeless. :( So I had to snag this one from Instagram because I hadn't yet backed up my latest batch of stuff. The good news is that my hard drive retrieval is ready to pick up so I'll have more stuff to post soon! Hope you all enjoy! :)

Country flowers...

I finally got around to ordering some stamping plates from MoYou London and let me just say, I'm in love! They're really detailed and the patterns are beautiful. Only one has come so far and the cheap clear stamper I got on Amazon has been a bit fussy (waiting on the MoYou one!) but nonetheless I think these came out fairly well! They remind me of some Orla Kiely towels I spotted a few weeks ago online. Do you have any MoYou plates? Which are your favorites?

Colors used:
Models Own Prussian Blue and Barry M Yellow.  Plate is MoYou Flower Power 01.

Dream a litte dream...

These are some quick nails I did just before I went on holiday last week.  I wanted something that was going to be pretty and sprakly in the sunshine but nothing too crazy since I knew I'd also be hiking and climbing and stuff.  I used Zoya Dream for the base which is one of my favorite polishes. The holo glitter in this one is just too pretty. Then I did a simple silver flower over the top. What kind of nails do you go for on holiday?
