Great Fall Color! - Zoya "Kym"

Monday, October 18, 2010


This one looked interesting on the shelf. It's a pretty medium blue with blue and magenta glitter. It seems to go on matte? I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a matte polish. The above and below pictures are index finger with top coat and middle finger without.
Now, even with topcoat, the chunky, lumpiness of the glitter doesn't go away. I generally find that pretty annoying. But this was such an interesting looking color, that it's almost okay.

Concrete next to Mystic Lilac

Here is Concrete, sitting on some actual concrete.
It's definitely got a lavender/grey thing going on. Very pretty. I could have sworn SH already had this color out and it was more putty colored, but it's included in the LE display in stores now and it looks like this. I found them at Rite Aid BOGO free.

This is concrete and mystic lilac side by side. Mystic lilac has a really pretty teal-green shimmer to it and it a slightly less grey lavender, if that makes sense.

Mystic Lavender

This is very sheer. It took maybe 4-5 coats to be opaque.

I wanted to love it, but once I had it on and wore it for a day or so, I didn't really like how it looked with my skin tone, and I almost never say that about any color. It's still a really interesting addition to my colection though.

Contest is Closed

Zombie Zest!

It took me about a month to track this down in person. Okay maybe 2 weeks, but the wait was excruciating. I went to at least 5 different Sally's. The one I normally go to, told me they had them in the back, but couldn't sell them to me until October 1st. TORTURE!
Why did I want this so bad? I love Zombie movies! Plus, I love this shade of green and it's a shimmery green, what's not to love!

Orly vs. Sally

I didn't compare Purple Gala to Mr. Wrong, but I did compare it to two of the Orly Cosmic FX polishes. Verdict=none of them are alike. :)

All of them are gorgeous though!

New SH Xtreme Wear - Purple Gala

This is easily my favorite. I have seen some comparisons to Hard Candy's Mr. Wrong, but I thought this had more of a duochrome effect and wasn't as purple as Mr. Wrong, I will have to check them out side by side.

Revlon Glitters!

It took me awhile to track these down. This one is star, which is a purple glitter with silver hex glitter. I layered it over Color Club High Society to show off the purple.
I thought it came out kind of neat!
