Zoya Ignite Collection

I have four of the six shades from the Zoya Ignite Collection to share with you today.
 I bought these polishes a few months ago when there was a promo, which by the way if you don't follow Zoya on any of their social media accounts you totally should because they often have great promos. This particular one was buy one get one free, plus free shipping on orders over $15, so it was a great deal. 

Teigen is a reddish pink with gold shimmers.

Yuna is quite unique to me, it is a grey with gold shimmers.

India is a deep burgundy with gold shimmers.

Sansa is a deep purple with gold shimmers.

I love all these shades, and I tend to be drawn to deeper, darker tones, but Yuna really stood out to me.

These can be found on Zoya's website.

FingerPaints Endless Wear

New to FingerPaints line, available February 2015, is Endless Wear Long Wear Color. 



Dahlia Drawing is a radiant orchid shade of fuchsia pink with purple undertones.

I've been wearing this shade for five days!!!! and it looks just as perfect as when I put it on, so I'm very confident that it will stay put for quite some time.

FingerPaints: New February 2015 colors.

FingerPaints has ten new shades being added to their permanent collection, which will start showing up in Sally Beauty stores February 2015.

You Gotta Be Kitsch-ing Me has various sized silver, gold, pink, blue and green glitter in a clear base, and is actually a dupe for Tangled in Tinsel, from the limited edition Holiday Glitz Kit, so if you missed it, now is your chance to get it. I layered this over Red Carpet Manicure, White Hot

Daubigny's Garden is so unique, it has iridescent (take a look at that bottle, it flashes green/gold/), purple and pink glitters in a clear base. I layered this over Red Carpet Manicure, White Hot. 
I am going to have to experiment with this one and layer it over all different colors to see the effect I get.

Sterling Sculpture has small hex and micro silver glitter in a clear base, layered over Red Carpet Manicure, White Hot.

Still Life Strawberry has small hex and micro raspberry pink glitter in a clear base, once again layered over Red Carpet Manicure, White Hot.

Such A Fake has a shimmery gold base, filled with what appears to be the same glitters as You Got To Be Kitsch-ing Me.

Violaceous Vase has a shimmery pink base with various sized purple glitter. 

You Can Crayon My Shoulder is a red base filled with silver shimmers, red glitter and glass flecks, it was so hard to capture it all in my photo. 

Th-ink Outsde The Box has various sized black and white hex glitter and black bar glitter in a clear base, I layered it over You Can Crayon My Shoulder.

Gogh With The Flow is a lavender purple base with silver glitters, it dries to a satin finish. 

Color Me Abstract is a magenta with silvery blue shimmers, almost foil finish.

Each shade in the collection has been carefully crafted with the finest pearls, pigments and real genuine crushed gems to reveal brilliant color and shine. Whether you’re partial to your birthstone, or are looking to evoke wisdom or strength, the collection offers these radiant hues:

I have the entire collection to share with you, but I'm not going to show them all today. Each month I will feature that months gemstone, first up is Garnet, which is January's birthstone.


Being born in January doesn't necessarily mean your zodiac sign is Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 20) but they decided to correlate Garnet to Capricorn.

Garnet is a deep Merlot jelly base with various size glitter with a hint of blue shimmer, this color is GORGEOUS!!!
