Hello lovelies!

Today I want to share with you a beautiful and girly textured formula. China Glaze Wish On A Starfish is a pink textured formula with fine gold shimmer. You can see gold hue are very prominent on photos taken in the sun (first two) and not so loud on photos taken out of direct sunlight (last two). Formula is rather thin but very easy to build as it dies not dry too bumpy and is not difficult to layer. For all photos in this post I have 2 coats on.

Being a textured formula, Wish On A Starfish is not meant to be worn with a top coat on. This makes it fade in two days. To wear it longer I would suggest you either layer 3 coats or add a third layer after 1 day of wear. To take Wish On A Starfish off simply hold a pad soaked in nail polish remove on your nail for 15 to 20 seconds, it is not too stubborn to remove.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to share with you my Valentine’s day nail art idea. It is non-pink, easy to make and involves some stamping :) So if you would like to opt for a nail design out of the traditiona pink/red/romantic vibe, I suggest the one below.

The textured gold color is OPI Honey Ryder which I love and have shown you in several designs so far. On the white finger I have Bundle Monster stamping image from their Holiday collection image plates. This heart is the uppermost image on the BM-H16 image plate. I have Zoya Bar in the black nail base to add a glitter gold accent. I think these few glitters are the ingredient which binds the whole design together.

This look is super easy to achieve. I have 2 coats of Essie Mamba on. I added Zoya Bar to my tips and then lined the tips with gold striping tape.

I have shown you Essie Mamba before in this previous post: http://nailcentric.net/peachy-nude-essie-mamba-review-swatches/

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to share with you the beautiful Zoya Maya.

Zoya Maya review and swatches

Formula and application
Zoya Maya is a mix between jelly and creme formulas. It is medium thick, sheer in one coat and color is buildable. It is easy to use as formula is not runny compared to other crelly nail polishes. I have two coats on in the photos and a top coat. Zoya Maya dries with a great shine and it is not necessary to add a top coat for the sole purpose of adding brilliance.

Wear
When in two coats, Zoya Maya wears for two days with no chips. In three coats it wears for steady four days but then it looks more a creme than a crelly.

My verdict
I love the jelly finish of this coral. I find this way it works better on larger number of skin tones, including my yellowish undertone. This definitely is my go to coral.

Which is your favorite coral shade? Do you like wearing crelly formulas?

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I have for you a flower nail design based on dots. I chose three of the colors from Zoya Naturel nail polish collection which I love. These are Zoya Normani (thumb), Zoya Brigitte (forefinger) and Zoya Chantal (pinkie). To get this nail design you need a dotting tool and some nail art studs/beads. On your middle and ring fingers paint 5 dots to form a flower. Then add micro beads in the center of each flower and finally ceal your design with a layer of top coat.

Hello lovelies!

I have some thoughts on China Glaze Luxe and Lush to share with you.

Here is a skittle swatch to show how this nail polish works with different colors as a base.  I thought nude, black, white and blue would be the best options and have not tried it in any different combinations though.

Formula and application
China Glaze Luxe and Lush nail polish is an effect top coat with. The formula is flakes in a rather runny clean base. It is easy to apply and is also buildable. My first two photos above show Luxe and Lush in two coats on bare nails.

What I love about the flakes is that they do not tend to stick out your nails once the nail polish is dry. This formula dries almost perfectly smooth. Adding a layer of clear top coat will not hurt to smooth things out even more but it is not obligatory as with many othr flaky formulas you may have tried in the past.

Wear
Two coats of China Glaze Luxe and Lush will stay on your nails for two days if alone and no top coat added and for 4 days if applied on a colored base. I have not tried the second combination with additional layers of top coat so I cannot comment if that would increase the tine of wear.

This nail polish is easy to remove without soaking the nails into nail polish remover. Just count to ten with your ail polish remover pressed to your nail before you wipe the nail polish off.

My verdict
China Glaze Luxe and Lush is one of my favorite effects top coat formulas. It turned out to be pretty versatile too. When I made my skittle swatch I thought I could wear all of the base colors in combination with this formulas with pleasure.

So that was my info on Luxe and Lush, I hope it was useful!

Hello lovelies!

I have this super cute panda nail design today. foodpanda contacted me with their idea to make a panda nail art post and I thought it would be a great :)

To get this look simply paint some of your nail white and some of them black. Add black spots on your white nails. Tip! To make your panda look fluffy, do not attempt for clear outlines. I added my furry details using a brush and just touched my nail surface with it repeatedly.
