New Zoya Petals collection is just my cup of tea. Delicate floral shades with hints of dew that shine like the morning sun. I received my swatch box while on vacation in Florida. In fact just a couple days after we left home. So you can imagine how anxious I was to open that box! But then again, being at our vacation home in Florida is pretty sweet too! Let’s take a look at these long-awaited beauties.
Let’s start with Laurel. So stunning and delicate at the same time.
Leia is one of those shade shifting polishes that shine on their own (with multiple coats) or create cool illusions over other shades.
Tulip, one of my favorite flowers. What a perfect name for this one!
So hard to pick a favorite, but this one, Azalea, ranks high in my book.
Aster is a breathtaking periwinkle sparkler!
Zahara is now one of my favorite orange tones. And I have several.
Conclusion: I love the shades and finishes in all six of this collection. Formulas were perfectly smooth, easy to apply and although half of them required three coats to full opacity for me, subsequent layers were no problem to apply. I would have liked to see at least one less orange/coral tone in the set, even though they were all gorgeous. I’d have liked to see a green, maybe a pale green with glass fleck to set off and cleanse the pallete. But, maybe some pretty greens are on our horizon!

Get ready to make a dental appointment because these six sweeter than candy shades from Deborah Lippmann will make you drool! The Sweets For My Sweet – Shades of Pastel (Limited Edition fashion sized set) are full coverage and irresistible. Heavenly. Scrumptious. Delicate. Deborah Lippmann reps describe it as, “Treat yourself to some nail candy with this collection of sweet pastel shades. Long-wearing and quick-drying, it’s all the indulgence you could ever ask for — and totally cavity-free.” I agree! Let’s see these confectionary-inspired pastels.
Let’s start with the pastel orange creme, Sugar, Sugar.
Next up, one of the prettiest pastel yellow cremes I have every tried. Lemon Drop!
Every lacquer collection needs a delicate pastel green, Sweet Pea. And with a great formula and this sort of opacity, I say, “gimme”!
Oh, those baby blues! My Boy Lollipop is a sweet little pastel blue number. Also half of the Pantone 2016 duo.
Like flowers in the Spring, here is a scrumptious little lavender creme, All Day Sucker.
The other half of the oh-so-delicate pair for Pantone 2016, here is the mouth-watering pale pink, Candy Girl.
Well, that’s it for now sweeties! Are you hungry yet?! I am quite pleased with this Limited Edition set. I don’t know how long they will be available, so you might want to order these asap.
Conclusion: I love all these pastels and they are as opaque as you can get. Five of the formulas were perfect medium in thickness and super easy to apply. However I did have more issues applying the orange pastel, Sugar, Sugar. It was thicker but still doable. All six were quick drying but gave plenty of time to work with them. These shades remind me of those Jordan Almonds! Love!!!
Wake up to these soft and easy-on-the-eyes shades from Vinylux Spring 2015 Flora & Fauna Weekly Polish Collection from CND. Colors and styles are inspired by watercolor impressions of luminous landscapes. I have to disclose immediately that every single one of these formulas are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I’m not kidding! I would consider this collection sent to me by RPR Marketing a spring essential for salons everywhere and avid polish collectors in general.
CND describes this collection, available in these Weekly Polishes as well as Shellac as: “Moments of reflection as wildflowers sway in the soft morning breeze. Untouched meadows, nature’s retreat, sigh with tranquility.” They are available now.
“This season’s trends are all about unplugging from today’s digital world and embracing the simpler things. Sun-bleached tones and dreamy watercolor paintings emerge from the perfection of nature,” says CND Co-founder and Style Director Jan Arnold. “Nails are easy and softly squared – as wearable and simple as a barefoot stroll through the grass while finishes play with matte and shiny effects.”
I’d say that pretty much nails it! I couldn’t be happier with this breath of fresh air. Let’s take a look.
First up is Blush Teddy. I’m not sure what that implies 😉 But its gorgeous.
I’m in love with Creekside! I guess because I love the water. But it’s a stunning pale blue.
I wasn’t sure if I’d care much for Dandelion on my skin tone, but I think it’s one of my faves of the bunch.
What a glorious neutral is Field Fox!
Fragrant Freesia has a wonderful glass fleck effect that I love in polishes!
Even though Salmon Run was streakier in application on the 1st coat, it nicely corrected itself on the second, and still needed a third. But it turned out nice and I love this shade!
Thistle Thicket is one of those must-have greys that tend to go with everything! This would be a wonderful polish for the workplace, but also as a base for nail art. It’s got a touch of blue/lavender to it which makes it adaptable.
I LOVE this Wild Moss with it’s glass flecks and shimmer!
And just for fun, I played around with a bit of springtime nail art of Wild Moss.

Mark your calendars for March 21st! This oh-so-spring collection from indie brand Chloe & Bella, the 2015 Spring Collection, will go on sale and you don’t want to miss any of the six mix ‘n match set. Here they are!
The formulas of the creams were consistent and easy to work with. No flooding and not overly thick with a nicely splaying brush. Although it’s hard to capture the iridescent flashes within each of the creams, believe me, they are there in full sun and well lit rooms. The glitter toppers are great formulas as well, each in clear bases. No fishing here as these formulas have plenty of multi-sized glitters without being chunky on the nail. I found that they applied so smoothly you really don’t need a glitter filling top coat for any of them.
Let’s start off with the Tangerines! Tangerine Cream…
Tangerine Twinkle, her outspoken sister!
Everyone needs a dreamy pink in their springtime collection. Here we have Strawberry Cream.
And to top it off like a Sundae, here is Strawberry Twinkle!
And finally, the Aubergines! Now, I had to look up this word because frankly, I didn’t know what it meant! 😉 Aubergine is actually another word for eggplant! Now, although this could be a pastel version of that deep purple squash, you’ll see the true eggplant shade in it’s sister’s glitter. Here is Aubergine Cream.
And paired with the cream this glitter is too gorgeous. Here is the last of the collection Aubergine Twinkle.
Reminiscent of Easter egg colors and springtime blooms, you’ll definitely want this collection. I highly recommend them!
The polishes go live for sale on the Chloe & Bella website beginning March 21, 2015 and will retail for $7.50 each.
I can’t say enough about this amazing collection! Chloe & Bella polishes have never disappointed me and they are a great value! This is why indie brands flat out rock. They are always innovating. Let me know which ones you will be buying. I love hearing from you.
By now you may have started noticing swatches and reviews of the newest darlings on the 2015 Zoya train…those fab new Naturel Satin collection (available now) and the delightfully spunky spring line, the Delight collection (Available to order NOW!).

As we speak, my swatching samplers of the six Naturel Satins and the six springy Delight collecion have appeared at my post office. Since I’m out of town, there they shall stay for another week all snuggled up with a plethora of other nail mail until I return! I can’t wait to get these on my nails 🙂 But I just wanted to keep you updated in case you thought I was skipping, TOTALLY NOT! LOL Just weird timing that they would show up while I’m in sunny Texas.
