First off, please excuse the chip we have going on with my middle finger. I actually trimmed down my nails quite a bit today. Since I hadn’t taken a ton of time for my nails this week, they were growing and growing with no filing! Eventually there was a chip and I had to work with it. Le sigh.
I’ve been wearing Wednesday by Zoya for a few days now! I do love this pretty turquoise cream color. The shade is flattering, the formula is perfect in 2 coats. Pretty.
See this one in action in my recent Hits & Misses ♥ Finished Products/ Empties! pt. 5!
Whoa bright! I received my Julep Maven box a few days ago. I saw this gorgeous, super bright blue shade and knew I needed to try it! Ally is a very intense blue. I normally trim my nails way down for these shades but I didn’t want to part with my length this time around!
This image highlights it’s only flaw, if you have thin nails are peel problems, it may seem more obvious with this color. In person, it isn’t quite as apparent but it’s there!
I love just how bright it is! OH! And I forgot it’s other flaw!
Do you guys own this one? Did you notice anything weird about it? The smell! There’s something about the scent of this one, it is very off. Very pungent. Very strange.
I feel like I’m flip flopping between it’s gorgeous colors and it’s strange attributes. What can I say!? Love you guys!
p.s. See it in action in my recent Face of the Day tutorial!
After finishing my last post, I go onto Instagram to see my best friend took a picture of her GORGEOUS nails for Easter! My goodness, makes me rethink what I was doing with myself last night. Why on earth wasn’t I creating something this beautiful!
…Other than the fact most of my polishes are packed, hello! How fun and colorful! And the shape? Linds normally goes more square, but this rounded look mimics Easter eggs and it works perfectly!
I just love the pastels, and the color combos, and LOOK at her ring finger. Well done, Linds! Love you! Miss you! Can’t wait for your visit in May!!! We’ll paint our nails all 6 days long.
I wanted to share this, so pretty! I hope you guys like :)
Edit: Linds texted me with the colors she used :)

This month’s (March) Julep box came with some Spring themed beauties! I received Joy and Leila this month. I love Joy, it’s very low key but quite pretty. Leila, is a bit more daring! I actually pulled it out of the box thinking it was a yellow but with a bit of a green-ish quality to it. Which is a good thing, since I already own a few light yellows to date.
The formula was a bit thick and overall, an EH experience. You can tell that near the edges of the cuticle, it’s a tad jaggedy. That tends to happen when the polish is goopy and floods the cuticles during application. Removing it from my skin was tricky! MEH, for sure.
I planned on wearing it through Easter. (we are moving in a few days, so unfortunately my polishes are packed for the most part = nothing to work with for an Easter mani, harumpf), but I removed it because I wasn’t hugely a fan.
If you celebrate, HAPPY EASTER TO YOU!
