Darling Diva Green Diamond

I don't really feel like saying much tonight but I know I can't keep this pretty polish all to myself so... is Darling Diva Green Diamond.  It's a one coater (on me at least).  It's a green linear holo that dries matte which is really cool.  With a top coat it's pretty stunning.

That's about all.  Have a great night! (:

Zoya Arlo

As most of you know I have a thing for textured polish and own almost all of the Zoya PixieDusts because, well...I need them.  I may not wear them all the time but as long as they are in my possession, that's fine with me.  (Now I really sound like a hoarder.)
Zoya Arlo is one of the newer Magical PixieDusts that came out recently.  It is a fuschia base with super chunky holo glitter and when it dries it's super textured.  I used two coats for these swatches and just can't stop staring at my nails.   If I haven't been into polish lately, this is definitely turning me back in the right direction.  Now I just need the other two to complete my collection.

Which is your favorite of all of the Magical PixieDusts?  I think this is mine by far.  Let me know in the comments below. (:

Zoya Harper

So I wasn't super crazy over the Tickled and Bubbly collection from Zoya until I went to Ulta and happened across this super cute pink polish with a name I did not know.
This is Zoya Harper.  I ended getting this one and Muse along with Arlo because there was a Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal, and then they gave me a free bottle of Monet.  I was really drawn to Harper because of the iridescent glitter inside.  It looked like little rainbows so of course, I had to have it.  I used three coats for these photos because the pink base was kinda sheer.  Other than that I loved it.

Which polishes from the Tickled and Bubbly do you love?  Let me know in the comments below.  (:

Sally Hansen Purple Alloy

I'm sure by now you've all heard about and maybe even seen the new displays of Sally Hansen Color Foils.  If you haven't picked any up yet, you nee to!  I was pretty sure they would be awesome but just in case they weren't I only bought one to start.  I absolutely LOVE it and need to go back and get a couple of other colors.  But just to start, here is a gorgeous purple foil.
Sally Hansen Purple Alloy is a pink-toned purple with a foil or chrome finish that applied like a dream.  It only took one coat (yes I said one coat) to get perfect coverage.  It's really difficult to capture the exact color on camera but the second photo is definitely the closest.  It's almost spot on.  The others are showing it a little darker but think of it more of a lavender foil.  Bottom's gorgeous!  The photos above are shown using a layer of OPI Lay Down That Base and then Purple Alloy over and that only made it better than when I first tried it, but if you don't have the OPI base coat, don't fret.  It still looks amazing without it and you will hardly see any brushstrokes.  Just be sure to buff your nails smooth before application so that you don't see any ridges or snags.  I didn't use a top coat so I don't know how they react or how it might change the effect, if at all.  And because I didn't use a TC, the polish already started to wear on the tips and all I did was go out to eat.  If I actually wore this polish to work (which I will anyway), it would be completely chipped off in a hour, but I still love the effect and the ease of application and the color is to die for.  I can't wait to go back to Target tomorrow and pick up the green and teal ones and maybe a pink and the darker purple.  I don't know which yet, but I do know that I will be getting more for sure.  Have a great night/day (depending on if you slept yet).  I'm gonna hit the hay!
