last week for the nail polish challenge (pale blue) i wore zoya kristen:

and it held up so ridiculously well that yesterday, on day 7, i layered one coat of zoya frida over it, in hopes of wearing it for awhile yet this week:

it looks a little streaky in this picture but not really in real life... i could do another coat of frida to get a deeper teal, i suppose. perchance i shall.

I love that color, bluedawg!

I'm currently wearing China Glaze Bat My Eyes over black nail polish.

I finally put on that CG polish I got from On The Horizon and I hated it. I wanted to try it alone for the full effect so I put on three coats, then two layers of top coat because the first layer disappeared. It looked bumpy and weird, so I was like, "Oh, maybe a matte topcoat will help." Nope, it made the bumps for obvious and at that point I had so much polish on it was almost like wearing fake nails. I peeled it all off today, I don't think i've ever hated a polish this much this fast.

I had shellac lobster roll put on on holiday last week and amazingly it still looks perfect! I have the same colour in vinylux on my toes and that has lasted over a week too. I can't work out how to post a pic from my mum's tablet though.

Zoya has a BOGO sale for these team spirit trios with free shipping, a good deal if you can find two trios you want:

http://www.zoya.com/content/category/Zo ... pirit.html

The code is 'spirit'

I'm waiting for a more generic BOGO because the next time I order from Zoya, i'm going to get Brian's sister the colors of her dogs names (Izzy and Arabella, which happen to match).

sooo, i just went a little hog wild at zoya. i decided to go for it with the spirit trios BOGO, because i've been wanting raven & purity and they came in a bunch of the sets... and the BOGO (plus free shipping) means it's less than $4 a bottle, which was just too good to pass up!

i bought the raven/purity/trixie set, and then decided to throw caution to the wind and try some pixie dust. the only two PD colors i was interested in happened to be in the one PD set they were offering (sunshine & tomoko), which means i ended up with a bottle of dhara (orange) that i strongly doubt i'll keep. i might be back in here trying to pawn that off on one of you guys once i get to look at it in person. ;) anyhow, even if i get rid of that, 5 bottles for $22 is pretty awesome.

AND THEN i took advantage of this: http://t.co/wXI2LAtZQ0
which is a free bottle of any color with any purchase (today only!)... so i bought a new bottle of armor, and picked sailor as my freebie.

i shall be drowning in new nail polish this time next week.

Well, okay. I got to the last page and the "submit order" button doesn't work. Thanks, Zoya, I guess I'll keep my $9.

Edit: Nevermind, it worked. I got one of the pixie dust polishes in Nyx because it just looked to cool not to try, and a sage/mint green creme called Bevin.

Edit again to add that right now my nails are Halloween-themed: matte white with blood splatters.

Thanks for the heads up, BD! I went ahead and got my SIL's Christmas polishes since you only have to buy one other thing and I doubt I will be making any major nail polish purchases for myself in the near future. I feel like my personal collection is pretty full and i'd rather spend my limited fun money on other things this holiday season.

I actually forgot to paint my nails for Halloween. FOR SHAME, KATIE. So i'm going to put on Beatrix right now, it's the bright orange Pixie Dust that i've never actually worn so even though it's more summery, it's a-going on.

My nails are currently Zoya Livingston, which wasn't specifically chosen to be Halloween-y, but is still a thematically appropriate red. I don't own or wear many reds, but I really love this one.

I just did BL Saucy Jack last night - I've been wearing dark polishes for weeks and wanted to switch things up a little... but really all I want to do is wear Zoya Kelly, Petra, and Raven...

Butter london is having a 30% off code until 11/3. FFHOLIDAY

I may or may not have blown another gift card on nail polish...

For halloween (I still have it on) butter london silly billy on one hand (orange) and black on my other hand. Earlier in the week I did halloween color polka dots (orange, purple, witch green and white) over black base. It was my first time doing polka dots so no pictures!

I did mixed green mani tonight - Zoya Shawn with China Glaze Budding Romance on the accent nails. Budding Romance is such a weird color. I can't decide if it looks good on me or not, but I love it regardless.

Not sure if anyone has posted this before - but I need new base coat and top coat recommendations. I like the fast drying top coats because I'm an oaf, but not if they cause a lot of shrinking.

I started using Zoya anchor for my base coat and I love it!

I use the China Glaze quick drying top coat and it dries pretty quickly and I don't notice much shrinkage, but my nails chip quite easily and this top coat doesn't do much to help with that so when I run out I'm going to switch to Zoya armor (I don't think it's quick drying though).

I have the Orly one and it's not bad. I need a new basecoat though as my old seche one is really dried out. Topcoats - as much as I love seche vite, it definitely causes some shrinkage, especially the older it gets.

I've been mostly using Vinylux lately and you don't need basecoat for that and the colour/topcoat is fully dry in 12 minutes. It's pretty cool. I need more colours though.

In other news, I can't believe it, but this shellac is still with NO chips! It'll be 2 weeks tomorrow. I know it's meant to last 2 weeks so that's not really a miracle, but on my nails, even acrylics are normally lifting after a week!

i use nothing but zoya anchor (base) and armor (top) no matter what kind of polish i'm using (zoya, butter london, barry m, a england...), and i have fantastic results. zoya armor is not fast-drying on its own, but zoya has fast drops that are AMAZING and your nails will be dry in a matter of minutes. highly recommend.

Agreed - Armor is worth the extra dry time, I'd say I get an average of 2 extra days of wear when I make the time to use it. Although, to be fair - there have been a few times when I've done my nails in the afternoon and had sheet marks even when going to bed HOURS later. I don't use the fast drops as much as I should, though.

Butter's PD Quick topcoat is good in terms of being fairly fast drying with decent shine, but it is sososo expensive...

This sounds pretty awesome, you've seen my nails, even with my fancy new Seche Vite I can't go 48 hours without chips! It's something you need to get done professionally though right? I'd be tempted to try it next time I go away for a week, I always feel a bit bummed about having to go polishless but spending 5 days with chipped nails is worse!

bluedawg I reeeally like Frida!
