I know I said I would post this before now since I already posted the first six shades from this awesome collection, Sophisticates from Zoya for fall 2017, but life happens!
To make a long and painful story short, I was in a car accident and was hit by a hit and run driver. My beautiful car is still in the shop, I feel better. Just suffered from soreness. The longer story is in my Instagram feed if you’d like to check it out, with photos! Then although we got tons of rain here in Central Texas from Hurricane Harvey over a 4-day period, we made it through the storm and today is the first day the sun has come out up here at least. The Texas Gulf Coast however still needs a lot of help and support, and will for the coming months.
Enough of that, let’s get to the Swatches!
So hard to pick a favorite from these last six of the Zoya Sophisticates collection! I’m leaning toward Mona and Hadley. But I love them all and the formulas of course and great as expected.
Recently I got to try three of the Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday collection by Indigo Bananas. I want to jump right in here and say the formulas are perfect! So easy to apply, base coat recommended and top coat optional, they are shiny!
NOTE: I was going to get this posed over the weekend, but Saturday morning my son and I hit by a hit and run driver, we were coming out of a stop sign intersection in a residential area, and the cross traffic was empty, except…a guy came barreling down and I didn’t see him, and he hit me at a full 30 mph! We are ok, I’m still a bit sore but nothing broken, but my car 😥 The guy that ran into me took off, so there’s that. Anyway, thank God for insurance as he is nowhere to be found, yet. So I am back on my feet, onward and forward!
Here are these gorgeous polishes! ~Winter 2016 Collection~ A Delos Holiday…A tribute to Westworld, one of many worlds for your many holidays.

Today I get to share with you the first six of the 12 bottle collection from Zoya, Sophisticates! I’ll be posting the rest of the collection this weekend. I can say for the first six, all the formulas are fabulous and I did them all in two coats, although some of them you could get by with one. Let’s get to it right away. Because Fall is in the air, almost, and it’s time to add some amazing shades to your collection.
My favorites of the first six of the Sophisticates collection are Hera and Padma, and I’m loving the shimmery pale Beth. Have you ordered any, or all? They are $10 ea and you can order now!

I have received a few items from the Born Pretty Store, and since they were arriving separately in my mailbox, I wanted to wait until they all arrived and post them all together. So I have quite a selection of items for nail art so grab a coffee and have a seat. Here we go!
I’ll start with the best…and work down 😉 Yeah, some were what I call “close” but no cigar. At least not for me. I think my favorite item from this menagerie was the Cat Eye Gel polish. It came with a special magnet that you hold over the polish before its cured, creating a mesmerizing cat eye effect. Now I want it in every color! I give this one 5 stars because the magnet was easy to use, the gel had a good strong amount of magnetics to create a stunning look. Color is BP-08 Jade Cat Eye.
You know I absolutely love flakies and powder pigments. They are so transforming and really perk up a mani. First, here some holo flakies in BP 39677, a silver holo.
And a great silver flakies powder, not to be confused with the super fine metallic chrome pigments, but a bit chunkier. These can be used loose, or burnished in (rubbed into a waterbase top coat or gel no wipe top coat) You’re only limited by your imagination. Go chunky and sparse or rub in a lot! BP silver flakies powder BP 39745.
This one gets an A for what it could have been. The gradient from red to purple/pink is gorgeous! Nail Foil papers are not for the faint of heart. It takes patience, and I have to admit I’ve worked with better. This one gave me a run for my money and would NOT rub in smoothly, but rather created more of a burnished metallic look. Still pretty, but I have hope for a more fluid look. BP nail foil redpink 38895.
I had such high hopes for this nail art stamping plate. (BP stamping plate L015) You know of love cats, and this one definitely needs more practice, or maybe the etched images are not etched deep enough. I tried several different polishes that I KNOW have worked great in the past with other plates. Nope, none of them worked right and only gave me partial stamped images. I think this is one of those plates that really does need stamping polish to perform. And those cats are so dang cute! I seriously wanted to sling this plate across the room! LOL But I mushed on. Finally I decided to try a black gel polish and that worked but looked somewhat blurry. But hey. I’m not here to sing the praises of every product I test. This one, cute but I’d give it’s performance 2 stars out of 5. That makes me sad. I’m not finished with it yet. I’ll keep trying because hey, it’s full of cats! LOL
