Nie-cy Polish Review!

✯ PR Sample ✯ 

Today I have 3 pretty spring colors from Nie-cy Polish to share with you today! I was sent Pace Mates, You are my Lady, and Le'le girl.

Le'le girl: a pretty pastel pink. It reminds me of ballet slippers. Even though it's such a light color application was no issue. Formula is quite nice, not runny at all. I used 3 coats, plus topcoat. Personally- you could probably even use 1 coat of this if you wanted a nice sheer nail color. I used Messy Mansion stamp plate MM18.

You are my Lady: Nice light green color. I thought it leaned towards aqua in the bottle, but it's more green on my nails. Again, application was great- I used 3 coats, plus topcoat. I used Emily De Molly stamp plate EDM04, and topped it with a bit of China Glaze Fairy dust on my accent nails.

Pace Matesis a bright colorful yellow. I ended up using 4 coats with this one, it was a bit streaky, but no other issues. I used Emily De Molly stamp plate, EDM05. I stamped with Rimmel 60 seconds- Hot Chili Pepper.

Today I am sharing the gorgeous Zoya Tickled, Summer 2014 collection with you! These are 6 vibrant colors perfect for summer! I used the Zoya Bubbly collection for Accent nails, along with some stamping.

Zoya Wendy (accent nail is Alma, 1 coat layered over Wendy). Wendy is a bright melon color, almost neon. I needed three coats. Citrus fruit stamp is Winstonia Store W118.

Zoya Rooney (accent nail is 1 coat of Binx layered over Rooney). I only needed two coats for Rooney a magenta pink color. My Flying Pig Stamp, is from Winstonia Store plate W217.

Zoya Kitridge (accent nail is 1 coat of Harper layered over Kitridge). I used three coats for Kitridge, it's a bright bubble gum pink. I stamped the Flamingo with Winstonia Store stamp W210.

Zoya Tilda (accent nail is 1 coat of Stassi layered over Tilda) I only needed two coats of Tilda to be opaque. The palm tree stamp is Winstonia Store W106 (I don't think this green plays nice with my skin tone though).

Zoya Rocha (accent nails are Jesy). I only needed two coats of Rocha. It's a very bright red toned orange.

@ZoyaNailPolish, Bubbly Collection!

✯ PR Sample ✯ 

Today I am sharing the gorgeous Zoya Bubbly, Summer 2014 collection with you! I decided to do accent nails with the Zoya Tickled collection. (I will have the review for that collection here on the blog in a few more days)Both of the summer collections can be purchased as a set or individually at (I used Seche Vite topcoat below on all the swatches).

Zoya Harper (accent nail is Kitridge from the Tickled collection). This is two coats, plus topcoat. I was surprised these weren't as sheer as I thought they would be. This one reminds me of pink lemonade for some reason, I really love it. 

Zoya Binx (accent nail is Rooney), I kind of wish I had done 3 coats instead of two. This is darker than Harper and more an Orchid Purple. It's so sparkly in person, I love this color.

Zoya Muse (accent nail is Ling). Two coats, plus topcoat for this color. Lovely bright blue!

Oh! Painted Nubbs had a fan on Facebook asking for a comparison of Zoya Muse, Charla & Crystal the other night. Ashlee only had Muse, so she asked if someone could compare. If you're curious- here is what they all look like on the nail, no dupes here!

Zoya Jesy (accent nail is Rocha) orange coral color with gold shimmer. This one was a bit sheerer than the others, so I used 3 coats. By the way, all of these polishes have glitter, but they were not hard to remove at all with some acetone.

Zoya Stassi (accent nail is Tilda) I also needed 3 coats for Stassi, I felt it was too sheer at two coats. I wish I have chosen a different design for the striping tape though- because I feel it looks like a turtle shell with the green, lol! 

My genuinely talented nail art friends, please don't be offended by this- it's just a joke, lol! My friend Autumn said they could be Ninja Turtle nails since the accent nail looks like a turtle shell, so as a late night joke I searched for some pictures- and stuck them on my nails on Paintshop Pro, hehehe! (Photos were found here). 

Zoya Alma (accent nail Wendy). 2 coats. Alma is a pretty marigold color. I didn't think this color looked too bad with my skintone actually. Usually yellows do not play nice with my pale skin.

Ellagee & Nail Pattern Boldness Reviews.

I recently purchased Ellagee Life is de Bubbles! It's a pretty blue jelly with pink blue circle glitters and holographic dolphins. I love it! I used 3 coats for the photo below and a thick coat of Seche Vite topcoat to even everything out. The dolphin glitters were quite plentiful in my bottle, every time I pulled the brush up they were clinging to the brush so I didn't have any issues getting them out. Now I'm eyeing Dolphins of the Caribbean next... ;-) 

I also picked up something that has changed my life when it comes to removing glitter polishes. Nail Pattern Boldness (I always want to type baldness!), Glitter-A-Peel. I first read about it on The Mercurial Magpie. 

What does it do?  It allows you to remove glitter polish instantly with no mess. You paint two (thickish) coats of Glitter-A-Peel and let it dry. Then paint your normal glitter bomb nail polishes over it, plus topcoat. Glitter-A-Peel will only last 2 days tops before pieces start popping off on their own. But since I change my polish often no issues there. I wore the dolphin polish above for two days straight, until I woke up with my pointer finger naked, it must of popped off when I was sleeping! To remove the rest of the polish, I used a wooden cuticle stick to loosen the polish a bit from the side and then I just peeled the rest off. It comes off in one piece. No more scrubbing you nails with acetone!

Failed Easter Mani- but you get the idea of how easy Glitter-A-Peel removes once you've loosened the edge with your finger or a wooden cuticle stick.
