The Gondola Venice box from SquareHue is a work of art

I literally, not exaggerating here, gasped when I opened this month’s box from SquareHue’s Adventure Collection, Gondola Venice, for October. Three old world shades you’d very much expect to find while gliding down the canals of Venice. With all the artful charm and historic grace of this beautiful Italian city, you are sure to find these exact hues while exploring all it’s alleys, stores and galleries. Let’s see what Venice looks like on the nail!

Here are the 3 bottles from the SquareHue Adventure Collection box for 10.16 Gondola Venice set. SH nailed the artistry and classic old world hues of Venice. A place where time stands still. From left, Canal Grande (w/silver shimmer), Santa Maria del Giglio (high gloss deep taupe creme), and Campo San Moisè (high gloss deep beet red).

CONCLUSION: SquareHue couldn’t have chosen more perfect colors for the Gondola Venice box. All so complimentary to the other shades, each formula also rates high marks. The thickest in application was the taupey creme, Santa Maria del Giglio and I only needed one coat. Campo San Moisè is a beet red creme that is drool-worthy and oh so glossy! It’s much thinner in formula but I had no pooling issues and it goes on really nice. This is my kind of red for Fall! Canal Grande is also a winner with its subtle silver shimmer. The shimmer doesn’t take over and therefore qualifies for day or night wear. Two easy coats and this very flattering deep teal aqua stunner.

Fight Like A Lady Trio by Morgan Taylor for a worthy cause

October is a great time to go Pink! And since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, pink is surprisingly everywhere from pro football team socks and gloves to obviously, you guessed it, nails. I’m so happy to see major nail polish brands helping with the fight to eradicate breast cancer. Having a couple of relatives with the disease and their success in the fight, it’s encouraging to know there is so much support in research. So on to the fun stuff! Today I get to share a glorious set of polishes sent to me from Loxa Beauty, Morgan Taylor’s “Fight Like A Lady” Trio.

What a perfect trio of polishes in this set. P.S. I Love You, Fight Like A Lady and Lip Service.

P.S. I Love You in two coats, with the glitter topper of Fight Like A Lady on the accent nail. You’ll definitely need two coats but that’s it, and it’s glossy.

P.S. I Love You is amazing alone or with a glitter topper like Fight Like A Lady.

I love that the base in this glitter topper Fight Like A Lady has a slight pink tint to it. It’s not full coverage so it will also make a great gradient accent as well. Here it is over Lip Service.

Fight Like A Lady goes on nice and smooth over any creme. It looks amazing over Lip Service.

Lip Service is a glossy Barbie Pink. It’s the perfect shade to wear during Breast Cancer Awareness month! So go out and “save the tatas” and pick up a set of your own. Polish that is. 😉

Lip Service pretty much requires two coats but that's it. It dries quickly and glossy.

A Zoya Candy Corn mani

Happy October 1st! Bring on the candy! 😉 And speaking of candy…I’ve been wanting to create a candy corn mani this month but unsure which polishes I’d use. So there I sat this morning in front of my polish shelves (yes shelves, don’t judge) and pondered. My eyes fell upon a row of Zoya Pixie Dusts and the light came on. It’s almost like those bottles of Pixie goodness glowed to get my attention. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but I was pretty excited with my vision 😉

Halloween worthy mani, candy corn, just not the edible kind.

I settled on using Solange for the yellow, Dhara for the orange and a coat of Cosmo over white for the candy corn nails.

Solange is as described as a gold metal foil sparkle featuring a Zoya EXCLUSIVE GOLD PIGMENT in the best-selling Zoya PixieDust Textured, Matte, Foil Twinkle formula. Dahra is described as a firey orange copper with a matte, textured, sparkling metal finish. Cosmo, a Magical Pixie Dust, is described as a silver crystal sparkle, textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles.

A little history about candy corn you may not know! Candy corn, the little yellow, orange, and white treat has it’s root dating back more than a century. It is said that a candy maker, George Renninger, of the renowned Wunderlee Candy Company in Philadelphia, invented the tri-color confection in the 1880s. The Goelitz Confectionery Company brought the candy to the everyone at the turn of the 20th century. The Jelly Belly Candy Co., now owns that company and has the longest history in the industry of making candy corn, and it still uses the original recipe. There are of course other companies who make candy cone, but with varied ingredients.

Get your Pixie dusts at Zoya.com or Ulta Stores and see what you can create!
