Zoya: Carly

The main reason I love this polish is because it’s my name, so I’m kinda biased.  Not only do I love it because of the name, but the formula.  OMG!

This polish was a one coater and perfect!  It went on like butter and didn’t need much clean up.  And then the color…

Perfect royal purple with a shimmer red foil underneath.  It’s beautiful.  Hopefully the pictures does this color justice!

Have a great week!



Zoya: Zuza

Zoya Zuza is a gorgeous teal blue with silver foil. This polish was a little thin at first so when I applied a thick second coat to even it out.

Zuza only lasted not even two days before it started to chip. I painted my nails on Saturday and it was already chipped by Monday. But the color is gorgeous, so it’s worth it!

I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!


Bachelorette Weekend Nails

Happy Friday!!  In just a few short hours I’m driving down to Charleston, SC for a bachelorette party!  I’m headed down there with 9 other girls for a weekend full of good food, good friends, drinking, and penises!  I can’t wait!

I decided to do something fun and colorful for this weekend with my girls. This is my third time trying a gradient… not too shabby.  I’ve got to work on my blending, but they definitely turned out better than the last time.  I didn’t even post the last ones I did because they looked awful!  I did post a far away picture on my instagram (@carlylizabeth), but I was too embarrassed to put it on here.

For this gradient I used Zoya Ali (pink), China Glaze That’s Shore Bright (purple), and China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle (teal).  I love this color combination!  Perfect for holding on to the last month of summer.  These colors were pretty opaque and only took a few times with the sponge to cover my white base, which was Julep Bunny.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
