Zoya Neeka, Zara, and Charity

Hey there everyone, hopefully I won't have such a hard time getting pictures added to this post as I did the last. OMG, it was ridiculous. First I typed everything up on my laptop, because I tried to add the pictures from my laptop and it wouldn't do it. It just kept telling me there was a problem saving. So I typed everything up on my laptop since that way I at least had keys to type on and I didn't have to one finger tap it all out on my kindle. Well, after that I went to my kindle and attempted to add the pictures that I took, which should have automatically shared via the amazon cloud to my kindle, they didn't.  I had to go to my cell phone (which I take pictures with) and share the specific pictures. After that I got back on my kindle found the pictures and tried to add them all. Oh yeah that so did not work out for me. It added 3. The other 3? Lost in internet space somewhere.  Since they wouldn't show up, even after I tried adding them again, I saved it on my kindle and opened on the laptop to see if maybe the laptop gods would take mercy on me and let me open the post and add the remaining pictures on there. No such luck. But on the up side the other pictures were no longer lost it showed all of them, sort of. So I saved it and closed it on my laptop and went back to my kindle, where I had to delete all the extra pictures that now showed as the little broken picture icon (there were about 15). Then I saved again and with my fingers crossed to add the other 3 pictures that I still needed. And luckily, ta-da, it finally all came together! So I published it and called it good. Then I decided since it was so much fun to do that one I would start with all the other behind posts that I have. Yes, I know, you're all very jealous of the extremely tedious task that I have ahead of me :)

Alright folks, onto what you probably really came here for. To see what I have to share with you regarding Zoya's Neeka, Zara, and Charity. I will start out with Neeka.  This polish was a bit streaky on the first coat. Continued to pull and streak on the second coat, after what I considered enough dry time to apply the next coat.  I attempted to use these the same as I do all my indie's and it's just not meeting my "new" standards. I have 2 ish coats on of this polish, went through and did my best to even out the streaky spots. This is a deep plum with gold flecks and multi shimmers.  It's a pretty color but the formula is just not for me.

Next up is Zara, this is a light purple with gold/orange/red shimmers.  I applied 2 thick coats of this polish and was much happier with this one. Application was much much better. I really like this one. My favorite of the three.

Last up is Charity, which is a dusty rose/mauve with gold/orange/red shimmers. I applied 2 thick coats of this one also.  The application of this one wasn't quite as smooth as Zara, but it was still much better than Neeka.

I think after this I may just stick to the indies. They always seem to satisfy much better than these polishes did. I still can't add links so I apologize for that. I will save this here on the laptop and hope over to my kindle and see if I can add them from there!

I hope you enjoyed this post and come back again soon to see what else I have for you.  Have a wonderful day and don't forget to smile, you never know whose looking :)

MyStash Lacquer Aquaholic & Copper Theif

Hello everyone, I know it's been quite a while since I've posted a review and I am sorry about that. Life in general has gotten in the way. My husband and I opened a used car dealership at the beginning of this year and unfortunately that seems to be taking up all of our time. The only free day we get is Sundays. It stinks and we can't seem to find anyone reliable and intelligent that wants to sell cars and/or do mechanic work for us, so it's been really quite stressful. I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't just disappeared or anything. That I have been swatching beautiful polishes when I get the chance, and that I just haven't had a spare moment to post about the lovely things that I've been getting. So with that said this is a review that I had planned to get up some time ago, and I would like to publicly apologize right here for taking so long, I'm truly sorry! Please forgive me, and your polishes are amazing!! Alright now onto the pretties that I have for you today!
So I got a package in the mail from an awesome company called MyStash Lacquer with two very awesome polishes in it, they were Aquaholic and Copper Theif.
I will start by sharing Aquaholic with you. It's a clear based polish packed with gold ridescent and teal micro glitter, teal mini glitter, teal small hex glitter, and clear purple shards. Let me tell you this combo is amazing! I totally love it. I put this over Essence No More Drama on my index and ring fingers, over White On by Sally Hansen on my thumb and pinky, and alone on my middle finger. I have 2 coats on each finger. Just so you know I had absolutely no problems with this polish, I did not have to fish for any glitters they came out willingly. I really enjoyed this polish and wore it around for a good week.

The other lovely polish that was sent to me is Copper Thief. This also has a clear base, this one if jam packed full of pink and copper hex glitter in multiple sizes. It's a really fun combination. I put this one over Essence Walk on Air. Again I had absolutely no problems with this polish and enjoyed it very much.

To find MyStash Lacquer you can go to her Facebook page which is (sorry I'm on our old laptop and it doesn't want to cooperate and add in links!) or you can check out her awesome shop at She has some truly amazing polishes and she is in the process of perfecting her own holo polishes!!

Thanks for sticking with me through the thick and the thin. It's looking like at least for the summer I will be getting 2 days a week to stay home with my children, so that also means a bit more time to get some blogging in! Yippie!! Hope you come back again soon to see what else I have back logged for your viewing pleasures. Have a great day and don't forget to smile, you never know whose looking :)

Girly Bits Bachelor's Button, Remeber Aja, Twitterpated, and Crunchy Leaves reviews.

Hey there everyone, hope you are all enjoying your day. Today for your viewing pleasures I have some lovely Girly Bits for you. Please enjoy!

I'm going to start off with the very lovely Bachelor's Button, which is a very stunning darkish periwinkle blue holo.

Above are flashed and regular lit pictures, in person it's a mix between the two. But in different lighting it looks different so it's one of those that is kind of hard to capture. But here you can see the amazing linear holo!

For these pictures I have on 3 coats, I didn't have any problems with application. I absolutely love this color. It is so pretty! And if you like the pictures you will love it in person!

Next I have Remember Aja, this color was made in remembrance of Aja Sopanee Chandler (11) who died in a tragic accident on March 21, 2013.  $3 from each bottle sold go to 1) raising awareness of the "choking" game and self asphyxiation, and 2) the annual youth soccer scholarship. Aja's favorite color was purple.

True color again is in between the two of these photos.  Closer to the one below though.

This is a purple jelly scattered holo, that is super beautiful and made for a wonderful cause.

I have on 2 coats of this polish and didn't have any issues with it what so ever. Love this polish and what it's supporting.

Here is Twitterpated, which is a pale lilac jelly scattered and linear foil/holographic with pink shimmer.

This polish is just stunning in person. As you can see though it kinda freaked my camera out just a tad bit, so I am sorry for the blur in some of the pictures of this one. But you can still see that amazing holographic arc and foil look of this beautiful polish.

I have on 3 coats of this one because it is a sort of jelly color. I didn't have any issues with the application though. It's a wonderful polish in a stunning color! The color though is a tad bit lighter than what it appears in my pictures.

Last but definitely not least I have Crunchy Leaves, which unfortunately has been retired.  This is a greyish jelly base filled with bronze looking small and micro glitters and black glitters. It's a lovely color!

Here it's a bit oranged out. I'm not really sure what happened. But you can still see all the awesome sparkles in it!  This polish was probably meant as a topper, but as you can see I decided to use it alone to give you a better idea of the color of the polish itself and the glitters in it.

I am wearing 2 coats in these pictures and didn't have any problems with application or formula what so ever. I absolutely love all the polishes I've gotten from Girly Bits! She makes some amazing stuff :)

The pictures below are closest to color accurate.

If you would like to find some Girly Bits for yourself or just know where to stalk her awesomeness here are some options: Facebook, Pintrest, Instagram, Twitter, Girly Bits Shop, llarowe's online shop, Harlow & Co, Mei Mei's Signatures, Overall Beauty, Femme Fatale Cosmetics, and Foxy Fingertips just for a few ideas :)

I hope you enjoyed this post and I'm sure you found some stuff you loved! Please check back again soon to see what else I have lined up for your viewing pleasures.  Have a wonderful day and don't forget to smile, you never know whose looking :)
