Zoya Magical Pixie Swatches

Press Sample
 
Today I have amazing polishes to share with you from ZOYA. Here are the new Magical Pixie Polishes for Spring of 2014. I will tell you right up front, I'm in love with these polishes. I am going to Vegas in April for a week and these polishes are coming with me (the only polishes coming with me).

I LOVE these Pixies (have I mentioned that?). They are very similar to the regular pixies in texture. I didn't find that I was catching or snagging on anything. Below are swatches without Top Coat.
The shine from these is unreal. I felt like I had a Disco Ball on my finger tips. In Vegas and I am going to alternate them as I go through the week. I honestly didn't want to take these off. 

If you are looking for some fun Spring polishes you will not go wrong with these.

The camera can not even come close to capturing the sparkle in these beauties. What are your thoughts on these?

Lucky Charms - Part Two...

Press Sample
 
Here is the second polish in the Lucky Charms Duo by Trelly's M.I.S.C. called Milk & Marshmallows. This looks exactly like those awesome sugary marshmallows that I remember oh so well from my childhood. 


I used OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base coat. That is my go to base coat for Milky type polishes like this. 


Trelly's M.I.S.C. is by far one of my favorite Indy Polishes, and for good reason. Her formula's are always great. I'm adding this to my collection of polishes I love. I got a lot of compliments when I wore this one! Do you guys like this one? Yah or Nay? I would love  to hear your thoughts on this one.

Some Lucky Charms!!!

Press Sample
 
Tonight I have a super fun polish for you guys. This is Hearts Stars and Horsehoes by Trelly's M.I.S.C. This is part of her Lucky Charms duo. You have to love a polish named after Lucky Charms! 

I layered the polish over 2 coats of Zoya Odette, which is a grogeous pale dusty purple. I LOVE this color and it was a perfect match for HSH's.


I did have a little shrinkage (when the polish pulls away from the tip of the nail) from my top coat Seche Vite, but that was my own fault. I have not used my SV for ages and I should have thinned it, but forgot to. The result of forgetting to thin it = The not so lovely worn tip look lol. 


HSH's has some really amazing glitters in it. As you can see above, it has hearts, stars and horseshoes (half moons). I did not 'place' any of these glitters, this is just how I dabbed it on. I use a dabbing motion instead of brushing it on like regular polish because I get a better distribution of the glitters.I also do not like to place glitters, it always looks so much nicer when I let them just be.


 The colors in this are beautiful and really work well together. Sometimes, when you mix a lot of colors in one polish it can get too busy looking, and I do not think this one does at all. I also really love the pops of bright yellow. The bright yellow really adds a lot to this.

Tonight is my Hubby's birthday, so this was so perfect. He loves purple and this glitter topper really added that perfect touch. Off to dinner we go to celebrate! Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for part two of the Lucky Charms Duo coming soon.

From the long lost archives of Halloween? Bitches Brew

Hi Guys,

I'm slowly working on getting more posts and activity up and going here at the PolishHoochie. As I was cleaning out my files on my PC, I came across these pictures that I took with the intentions of posting them for my Halloween Swatch-a-thon from 2013. Some how these photos didn't make it in, well I could not let them go to waste ...So here they are!


I was lucky enough to win this polish from the Lovely SassyPaints2012 actually in 2012 lol. I was so thrilled to win it because I had missed it for Sale from Nail Pattern Boldness when it was offered (not knowing it would be sold again in 2013). SassyPaints has since become a really good friend and trusted friend of mine - LOVE HER. I waited it seems like forever to finally use it, so these pictures needed to go up!


The glitters in this are out of this world. You guys all know the glitter Hoochie I am :) The base color is Tardy Tart by Sation. Sation polishes are fast becoming my favorite polishes as a base for under all my glitter polishes, and the fact that they are really inexpensive and of great quality makes it even better.

And of course I had to bust out the Matte Top Coat. 


If you have not used a matte top coat on a glitter before, you are really missing out. Matte top coat and glitter nail polishes are meant to be together :)



Love this combo so much, and I hope you guys do too! Thank you for visiting.
