Zoya Nail Polish: Natty Review & Swatches


Zoya Nail Polish in Natty ($8.00 for 15ml) is described as a “smoky deep steel blue with an opaque cream finish,” and is part of the Designer Fall Collection.

Natty is a gorgeous colour and is unexpectedly versatile at that, with its smoky semi gloss finish, Natty is a sophisticated blue with attitude. The formula has a medium consistency and needs two coats to reach fully opacity which is typical with most nail polishes. Regarding Longevity, all of Zoya’s Nail Polishes last at least a week with minimal wear and no chipping and just minor tip wear for me.

Definitely great for the fall and those winter months!

Zoya Nail Polish: Aurora Review & Swatches


Zoya Nail Polish in Aurora ($8.00 for 15ml) is described as a “medium sugarplum purple flecked with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter.” As part of the Ornate Collection, Aurora stands out as a stunner and packs quite a punch!

The deep purple base stands as a wonderful backdrop to the rainbow concentrated flow of holographic glitter that is truly . The formula itself applies easily and the glitter flecks are evenly dispersed, it also reaches full opacity in just two coats and is fast drying. Regarding Longevity, all of Zoya’s Nail Polishes last at least a week with minimal wear and no chipping and just minor tip wear for me.

Overall Aurora is mesmerizing and is easily one of my favourite nail polishes of all time!

CND Solar Oil Nail & Cuticle Conditioner Review


CND Solar Oil ($4.25 for 7.3ml) is considered a manicure in a bottle with its natural blend of oils such as Jojoba, Almond Oil and Vitamin E. The formula has been developed to deeply penetrate your skin and nails in order to promote healthy, strong looking natural nails. The consistency and formula feels light and upon applying, absorbs quickly into your nails without leaving a greasy or oily residue.

With its simple application, you basically apply it as you would any nail polish by dabbing a small amount of oil on each finger nail and rubbing it into the cuticle and nail. One of the main reasons I love this product is because not only does it help maintain healthy nails but it smells absolutely divine! If you love the smell of almond then you’ll love this! It is extremely hydrating and is great to add to your nail routine.

I’ve been using this for years and a small bottle goes a long way! The bottle I reviewed is the 7.3ml version (which is ideal for traveling), but they do come in various sizes (7.3ml, 15ml, 68ml and 118ml ) all at very reasonable prices.

Zoya Nail Polish: Storm Review & Swatches


Zoya Nail Polish in Storm ($8.00 for 15ml) is described as a “full coverage, holiday black with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter.” As part of the Ornate Collection, Storm is another show stopper with its black base and scattered holographic shimmer.

The colour is rich and the consistency of the formula is fantastic and reaches full opacity with just two coats, the shimmer gets evenly dispersed when applied and is reminiscent of the starry night sky! In terms of longevity, I haven’t had this on long enough to say but typically with Zoya Nail Polish I get at least a week’s worth of wear with no chipping and just minor tip wear.

Overall Storm is a gorgeous colour with a wonderful fast drying formula that makes me feel as though I have the galaxy at my finger tips!

Available @ Zoya for $8.00

Modernizing Disney’s Leading Ladies Fashion


In September, Sephora announced an exciting collaboration and revealed the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora. Finally I was able to see the whole collection up close and personal during one of my many spontaneous (and dangerous!) trips to Sephora and I have to say its beautifully designed with a whimsical nature that truly captures Disney.


Having said that and coupled with the fact that I’ve been watching the tv show Once Upon a Time (yes I’m hooked!) I was inspired to modernize the leading ladies of Disney’s fashion sense. Check out what I came up with and let me know what you think!
