Steel City Reflections – Sarah Sanderson Swatches

Steel City Reflections Sarah Sanderson Swatch - Bottle Macro

As I mentioned recently, I still had Sarah Sanderson to share with you from the Steel City Reflections Hocus Pocus collection.  While Winifred Sanderson became an instant favourite in the warmer weather when I bought these, this vampy purple holo with red medium and larger glitter was a winter fave.  Like Mary Sanderson, it did not come with a label so I always have to hold them to the light to make  sure I have the right one so note to[Read more]

Floral Nail Stamping With Zoya Leslie and Mira

Zoya Leslie Mira Floral Nail Art

As I am going through my polishes, sorting for the move and getting rid of old ones, I came across Zoya Leslie.  A beautiful soft lavender with a blue shimmer undertone that is perfect for spring.  No surprise there as Leslie was part of the 2015 Spring Delight collection released in time for last Easter.  I paired it with Zoya Mira for some floral nail art.

China Glaze Avalanche Swatches + Nail Art

Each week, I will share a polish from my[Read more]

Steel City Reflections – Mary Sanderson Swatches

Steel City Reflections Mary Sanderson Swatch - Swatches Natural Light

Against my skin tone, I find it leans a bit more purple-red than blood red but still a beautiful colour and not as purple as the[Read more]

Zoya Lake Swatches & Review

Zoya Lake Review and Swatches

When I saw Zoya Lake in person, I knew I had to have it,  Lake appears almost grey in some light and more blue in others making it very wearable.  Zoya Lake is part of the 2016 Whispers collection which arrived in stores in early February. When I saw the press release for this collection, I knew I wanted Lake, but as early swatches came out, it seemed much brighter so I held off ordering it until I saw it[Read more]
