Just Imogen It…

18 Jan

Hello All!!! I hope your weekend and Monday were good, because who the hell likes Monday!? This past weekend was pretty awesome, I bought my wedding dress!!!! YOWZA! Mad props to my main girl Brit sticking it out with me through 3 dress shops! Third time is the charm right!!

This a bit of a throwback to when the Zoya Pixie Dust came out.  If you have followed my blog at all, you know I’m not the biggest fan of glitter.  Zoya polish and I have a love/hate relationship: I love the polish but it doesn’t like me.  I cannot get it to wear on me for a decent time; it’s a real pain in the balls.  When the Pixie Dust came out, I couldn’t resist their promotion, because seriously who?!  I bought Imogen, Vega and London. Below is Zoya Imogen:

I believe this is three coats (+ top coat), which at that point it started to get goopy at the tips.  It is a jam packed glitter bomb, slap-yo- mama kind of nail polish!  I think the longest this wore on me was 3 days…..maybe.  If I used a base coat of black maybe it would stay longer??? I’ll try next time and report!

Leave a comment please………………..I get lonely 😦

I hope you enjoyed my ramblings once more and good night!

 

What an adventure!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!  I shouldn’t have left you without a dope mani to see to! (<– see what I did there)  It is so sad that my last post was on last year’s New Years!

Wish I had a good reason as to why I haven’t posted in so long, but I’ll spare you the b.s. and just admit that I was lazy.  Sorry :-/

2015 was a pretty eventful year as in I finally got out of my dead end retail job and I got ENGAGED!!!! AHH, wedding madness and this shit is no joke.

Plus, not relevant to the prior paragraph, but I am on Instagram now @lacquerlackey  <– Click the link to check it out!

No segue. Back to the nails!  This is a new to me brand, Cirque, which operates out of NYC.  They have a crazy following and I finally got a few and this was amazing!! It’s a blue crelly with bar (ugh!) and micro glitter.  I don’t like bar glitter and have pretty much avoided any polishes that have it.  I made an exception for this because the bar glitter is very minimal, tiny and it’s navy, so of course I had to have it!

The three photos above are 4 coats! It’ll take some time to build opacity, but damn it, it’s WORTH it!  I did not use a base and would probably, maybe put some navy under this beast!  The COLOR: amazing! The FORMULA: amazing!  A++ in my book; highly recommend!

Until next time my lovelies!!!
