New for Summer- Zoya Island Fun Collection! (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

Hello friends!  Today I have pics of one half of Zoya's 2 part Summer collection. This part is called "Island Fun" and it consists of some summery bright creams!  Check 'em out:


Serenity- 2 layers 

Demetria- 2 layers

Nana- 2 layers

Jace- 3 layers

Cecilia- 2 layers

Talia- 2 layers

Final Thoughts: This is a really cute collection of some fun brights. The formula on these was consistently good and easy to apply. NOTE: I recommend doubling up on base coat when wearing "Talia"...I had some staining with that one.

These beauties can be picked up on Zoya's website here! (that's my "Share the Love" link...if you set up an account on Zoya, they will add a coupon under your promos for a free bottle of polish! Tip: If you use the coupon AND add 2 more bottles, you will get free shipping as well!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Esqido False Lashes in "Unforgettable"

Hello, my beautiful friends. I have another pair of gorgeous Esqido False Lashes to share with you today. (My first post about them can be viewed here). For today's look, I'm wearing their lashes in the style "Unforgettable".


This style is described by Esqido as "Natural and elegant. This pair of mink lashes features a gradient of increasing length and thickness across the lash band, resulting in a subtle yet beautiful winged out effect."




Look how fluffy these beauties are!

I'm continually impressed by the quality of Eqido's false lashes. These handcrafted lashes can be worn upwards of 25 times with proper care!  That makes them sooooo worth the cost. Be sure to stop by Esqido's website and check out these lovely lashes!!

Thanks for stopping by!
