Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

They are here and you can order now! It’s time to embark on a new adventure in Summer color with Zoya Wanderlust. Featuring an exciting assortment of full-coverage classic creams and hip accent shades to really rev up your Summer nail polish wardrobe. There will also be three new lipsticks but I don’t have them yet, on backorder! Let’s set sail and take a look at these jet setting beauties!

Zoya Wanderlust 12-bottle collection for summer 2017 includes 4 shimmers. Here are two that together remind me of a tequila sunrise! Mandy on pointer and pinky, and Journey on center two digits!

Another cool combo for summer. Lois and River from the 12-bottle collection called Wanderlust by Zoya. I love these two together.

Scout on center two nail, Arbor on pinky and pointer! It’s like these two were made for each other. All the cremes were 1 coat. Shimmery Scout took two. On my complexion I wasn’t so hot with them alone, but together, SO MUCH YES!

The second half of the 12 Zoya Wanderlust include four sunny shimmers. From top and clockwise: Mandy, Journey, Lois, Arbor, Scout and River.

More? Why yes!

Sonja by Zoya can be best described as a summery crimson red cream. She’s a hot number!

From the Wanderlust collection, Byrdie by Zoya can be best described as a muted fuchsia pink cream. So juicy!

From Wanderlust collection, Esty by Zoya can be best described as a rich bubble gum pink cream. This is some serious pink!

Winnie by Zoya can be best described as a soft watermelon pink cream. I SO love this one!

Cora from the Wanderlust collection by Zoya can be best described as a muted coral cream. I’m not sure I’d call it muted, seems pretty bright and happy to me!

Sawyer from the Zoya Wanderlust collection can be best described as a soft taffy orange cream. It’s bright!

Around the world with a set of Zoya Wanderlust lacquers to brighten your trek. Here are six of the 12. From top and clockwise: all cremes, Byrdie, Winnie, Sawyer, Cora, Esty and Sonja.

CONCLUSION: I love them all and the Wanderlust formulas are perfect. Cremes are 1 coaters and shimmers two.

Reflective, Iridescent, Super Shiny…That’s how owner of Oceans of Beauty and Sparkle & Co describes one of the newest powders, Unicorn Chrome! It’s pure magic in a bottle, but unlike real unicorns (yes, they’re real 😉 this is easier to get ahold of because it’s available now.

Generally preferred to be used with cured gel polish (35 shades to choose from from Oceans of Beauty) and using the no wipe top coat, Unicorn Chrome offers a mirrorlike finish, but wait! It creates shade shifting effects to any shade you apply it to. I just did a couple here but there is no limit. I even tried it with regular polish and Sparkle & Co’s amazing Top Pure top coat. Let’s take a look.

Here is Unicorn Chrome over one of the owner of Sparkle & Co, Christy, favorite gels in her gel polish line, #039, Azure Blue. Alone, Azure blue is a creamy ocean blue, but adding the Unicorn Chrome imparts shifting shades of green, aqua, teal, yellow and even lilac!

Unicorn Chrome by Sparkle & Co over gel color #019, Raspberry, a juicy berry creme. With this powder, it takes on mirror like shades of purple, aqua, green and gold. It is breathtaking in the sunlight!

Here are the three shades of regular polish used for the rainbow gradient mani with Unicorn Chrome powder by Sparkle & Co. Zoya Rocky, Liv and Ali. Just paint your favorite shade of regular polish then add Top Pure top coat by Sparkle & Co, let dry and rub in the Unicorn Chrome with eyeshadow applicator as you would over any topcoated and cured gel color. I painted three stripes of these colors onto foil, dabbed with makeup wedge and rolled onto the nail. For easy cleanup of course use the Unicorn Confetti peel away.

Here are the Zoya polish shades I used…

Just paint your favorite shade of regular polish then add Top Pure top coat by Sparkle & Co, let dry and rub in the Unicorn Chrome with eyeshadow applicator as you would over any topcoated and cured gel color.

Here is how super fine and delicate the new Unicorn Chrome by Sparkle & Co looks! Owner of S & C, Christy, says, “I can’t even explain how your nails will look in sunlight – it’s rainbowy, yet chameleon, yet…just stunning!! I love it over light colors for iridescent looks and over darker colors for a more rainbow appearance in the sunlight!” It can be used over any colorful cured with topcoat gel shade, or even with regular polish and use Sparkle & Co Top Pure and buff on it’s transforming mirror like, shade shifting magic!

Unicorn Chrome by Sparkle & Co comes in a 3 gram jar, order alone or with Unicorn Confetti Peel Away for your cuticles.

Conclusion: I LOVE this stuff! Seriously great quality, a tiny bit goes a long way. And here are the instructions for gel use:

To Apply:

Apply Sparkle & Co. Gel Base, 1-2 coats of any color Sparkle & Co Gel Color and cure all coats for 60s LED

Apply Sparkle & Co. Gel Top (no wipe) and cure 30s-45s LED (test your lamp)

Apply Sparkle & Co. Unicorn Chrome with an eyeshadow applicator and dust off extra

Apply Sparkle & Co. Gel Top again and cure for 60s

Christy, owner of Sparkle & CO at Oceansofbeauty.com has been a busy little bee! Today I get to feature a brand new collection of products, the Flexie Flakies, and coming soon to my swatch desk will be Unicorn Chrome pigment, AND DRUMROLL PLEASE… Luxe Polish (regular high quality nail polish)! Next week I’ll be starting off with the Beach Collections with Summer Brights then Summer Nudes. They are gorgeous folks! But for today, lets take a look at these cool new Flexie Flakies. They come in 2g Jars at $10 ea: The softest and most flexible chameleon color changing Flakies you will ever see! And the best part?! So easy to use in gel, dip powder and regular polish!! They just melt right in! They are all iridescent with different color hues! I apply with a small fan brush lightly dipped right into the jar/lid. The lightest touch over freshly painted nails is all you need. Then top coat. They can be used with regular polish, gel and dip powder nails. So versatile! Let take a look then go order!

Flexie Flakies, 9 varieties and 9 looks. Hard to tell from the jars, but I swatched them all atop black polish and they all look different!

Here is a closeup of one of the Flexie Flakies, in color FF! You can see how flakie and fine these beauties are.

All these Flexie Flakies were swatched over a glossy black polish, Willa by Zoya. Dark shades really make these pop. But try them over any shade, even top coat with matte for a cool mosaic look. Be creative! Here we go.

Flexie Flakies FF1 over black, hues are from pine green, to gold to blue.

Flexie Flakies FF2 have gorgeous transitions from pink to purple, blue and gold!

One of my favorite Flexie Flakies right here, FF3 shifts from pink to teal, aqua to rose gold.

Flexie Flakies in FF4 show off in deep blue, aqua, light green and purple.

Like a carnival on your fingertips, here is Flexie Flakies FF5. It shifts from fuchsia, to gold to teal.

Quite royal is this Flexie Flakie FF6! It shifts from deep purple, to deep blue, iridescent crystal white, pink and teal.

FF7 Flexie Flakies is another eye opener with it’s colors shifting from green to aqua to fuchsia.

Here is a warm shifting Flexie Flakies FF8. It’s subtle but provocative at the same time. Shifting from Light gold to pink and even orange.

Another favorite of mine, FF9 Flexie Flakies shifts from Lime green to gold to deep rose.

So loving this month’s SquareHue subscription box, Ballet (this year’s theme is Dance) 👯Swatches coming right up! From left: Allegro, Arabesque and Pirouette.

Two sparkling summertime metallics from Tahitian Sun. Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold. Those bottles!!!!

Okay, I’m a sucker for flashy polish bottles and Tahitian Sun custom polishes really hit home with my beach lovin’ heart with their sandy bottle tops with real starfish embellishments. Wow!

Tahitian Sun went full on with creativity and the beachy tropical theme reflects as well with the bottles and caps. I love the sandy lids with a real mini starfish on top!

And now for the fun part. Here are two of their sparkling metallics. Metallic Silver and Gold. And a luscious berry shade, Raspberry.

Tahitian Sun Metallic Silver is a silver glitter metallic Nail Polish in a super opaque metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. 1-2 coats of this sparkler!

Tahitian Sun Metallic Gold is a sparkly gold Nail Polish in a glitter metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. I used 3 smooth coats here.

Gorgeous Tahitian Sun Raspberry! 2-3 coats, here is two. I also added a gel-like top coat. There is a slightly textured glossy finish due to the ton of holo within. A good heavy duty topcoat will smooth that right out.

Tahitian Sun Raspberry is a heavy holo raspberry red in a jelly-like raspberry base.

I can’t wait to try more. Besides their willingness and ability to create custom colors and formulas, there are a ton of options from the menu. Here are the details on how to get yours! They take Amazon, AMEX, Discover, MC, VISA and Paypal.

Ingredients info:

Toxic Free Ingredients (5-FREE)
All of our products contain “No Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalat, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor”. We take pride in being a toxic 5-Free alternative.
Toluene. The least harmful of the toxic trio, toluene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is found in paints, thinners, and inks. Despite giving nail polish its ability to dry quickly, toluene is still a harmful chemical. The ingredient is also classified by the California Department Of Public Health Occupational Health Branch California Safe Cosmetics Program as cancer-causing.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP). DBP is a carcinogen found in paints, plastics, and pesticides that stops nail polish from being brittle. It is classified by the European Union as a suspected endocrine disrupter and Health Canada has linked it to liver and kidney failure in children.
Formaldehyde. Similar to DBP, formaldehyde is also classified as a known human carcinogen by The International Agency for Research on Cancer. It allows nail polish to harden and chip less, but can lead to fatigue, skin irritation, and immune dysfunction in users.
Formaldehyde resin. While similar to formaldehyde, no link between cancer and formaldehyde resin has been found. The resin helps strengthen nails, but is a skin allergen and immune system toxicant that can cause dermatitis.
Camphor. Camphor is created by distilling the bark of a camphor tree. Although natural, inhaling or having large exposure to camphor can be toxic, create irritation, and cause seizures in children.
