NOTD: Zoya Jaqueline

Posted on by 0 comment

I wanted to do a NOTD on this Zoya nail polish (Jaqueline) since I received it in my Ipsy bag a couple months back.

Zoya Jaqueline Nail Polish

I really like the colour of this polish, an off white with a hint of yellow in it. Really nice for summer, matches everything and makes you look tanned! However, my beef with this Zoya colour was the consistancy. VERY THICK. It was so difficult to apply it evenly, as you can see I did a bit of a shoddy job at my nails but honest to god – this was my best effort.

I really want to love Zoya polishes since they are more natural, but I’m a bit put off by this one in particular. We’ll see!

What brands have you had trouble with?

NOTD: That’s Berry Darling

Posted on by 0 comment

Another Nail Of The Day for you, this colour is one of my absolute favourites for the summer.

That's Berry Darling OPI

Such a gorgeous magenta!

It’s hard to tell in the photo, but when you look at the colour in the bottle in the light you can see subtle flecks of sparkle. The colour doesn’t come off as sparkly at all on the nails, but I think it’s that subtle sparkle that makes it really pop on your nails. I’m wearing it on my toes too :)

OPI’s That’s Berry Darling is virtually opaque with one coat, but I do 2 just cause I find it wears a little longer that way.

What are your favourite pink nail polishes for the summer?

NOTD: Pure Torture

Posted on by 0 comment

I’m going to go out on a limb and say China Glaze might be my favourite ‘middle of the road’ nail polish. When I say middle of the road I mean not drugstore, but not high end… inbetween. I lump China Glaze with OPI, although it’s slightly cheaper.

Pure Torture - China Glaze

A beautiful blood orange polish, perfect for spring and summer!

I didn’t give myself the best manicure here but hopefully you can see how gorgeous this colour comes off. This bottle has seen better days, haha you can’t really read the label anymore but is indeed China Glaze – Pure Torture. I always get plenty of compliments when I wear it, one coat is plenty. I’m on the hunt for some more polishes from China Glaze cause this one reminded me how great they are!

What China Glaze polishes do you favor?

NOTD – OPI Blue My Mind

Posted on by 0 comment

This is such a fun colour! I don’t normally choose a polish with any sparkle but this one is really cool to sort of anchor a complete look since it’s a darker colour. But still has pop which I LOVE: OPI Blue My Mind.  

OPI Blue My Mind

Vibrat blue polish with shimmer, really fun!

This really is an all year kind of nail colour, especially if you love blue! OPI polishes have really great staying power and colour payoff for the most part, and this polish held true to the name :). I applied 2 coats and a top coat and this manicure lasted me about 4 days… we all know how obvious darker polishes are once they chip!

What OPI colours do you love?
