ZOYA Matte Finish Polish ~ Posh

I finally got my hands on this polish and I love it!! But this polish is not user friendly. It dries very quickly and you can't correct any mistakes. (you can see a black line on my ring finger where I tried to go back over the polish) But even with that, the finished look is well worth it. Zoya has released a few other colors, and now I want them all!

Le Metier Polish

While shopping online at Neiman Marcus, I came across this brand of polish. They had quite a few pretty shades and this one "Phlox" caught my eye. According to their website, this polish is supposed to last 14 days! I am on day one, but will leave it on as long as it looks good. The site does not show the fl. oz. of the bottle you are purchasing and to my surprise it is very tiny, 4 ml. I'll be lucky to get 3 manis out of it! And it was $15, which wouldn't be so bad if it was a normal size polish.

Pretty though, don't you think?

Matte Polish

It seems like a new trend is coming, matte polish! Manglaze and KnockOut have been around for a while, but now OPI and Zoya are jumping on the band wagon. Though not out yet, they will be released for fall. I have a bottle of KO in Calamine. Bottle is so pretty! But the brush handle is so long, it takes some getting used to. Polish is a little thick going on and has a shiny appearance and then, voila! it dries to a matte finish. Cool! I needed 3 coats to get even coverage.
I haven't decided if I like this look, maybe a different color would work better for me. What do you think?

Chanel Galactic Touch

Chanel just released a new collection of polishes and I managed to snag one before they were gone! I am nuts for Chanel polish , which really is nuts considering the price of these babies! I currently own 14 of them! And 2 were limited editions at $30 a bottle (nuts!)

This new collection consists of glitter polishes in 4 different colors. (gold, silver, pink, and blue) I have swatched the gold one here, Galactic Touch. The photo doesn't show the glitter very well, but it's close. The only problem I had is that I needed 4 coats for the coverage that I prefer, and at $23.00 a bottle, ouch!
Sold out online, but may be available in dept stores.

OPI - Summer 09 A Grape Fit

I decided to take a new photo of OPI's A Grape Fit. My earlier post didn't do it justice. It really is what I would call "grape". This pic is 2 coats with a top coat. I love this one for summer!
