Mail-time: Zoya Awaken & Monet Polishes!




Two mail-times in a row?! I am a lucky lady, and Ham is a fortunate potato-dumpster-mouth.

In this edition, I just pile poxes on my poor, half-asleep, unwitting dog, and he is like 'what the hell, lady?!' :



"Oh...more nail polishes, huh?  That must be exciting for...you."



"But I am le tired."

Let's take a look at them pretty colors!

Don't these make you have Spring-time feelings?! Too bad it's like still 11 degrees and icy in Chicago.  We can dream, though.






And here, of course, is Monet, the already-famous iridescent glitter topper:




I am so stoked to try these! I really am in a pastel mood lately, so these look like they'll hit the spot.  I've already begun swatching and photographing, but I'm going to make sure that I have sun shots of the shimmer finishes.

These will be organized into two posts: one showing the four shimmers, and one showing the two non-shimmers, as well as Monet over the various shades.  Sound good? Stick around!



Disclosure: these polishes were provided to me as press samples for honest review, and all opinions are my own.

  4. Haha, I still have so many dark Untrieds too, and I'm sure as soon as Spring fully hits, I will be in the mood for them again! That's usually how it goes.
