Another haul post

I've been getting a few polishes lately, but I haven't really been doing my nails.  *sigh*
Sinful Colors Show Stopping, Bombshell, In The Spotlight, Fantasy, Cotton Candy, Beau Khaki, Sugar Rush, Mauve
I bought these Sinful Colors at Walgreens on Sunday after my son's wrestling tournament (he took first place!)--they're on sale for 4/$5 with the Walgreens card.
Julep Teri, Shenae, Simone, Leila, Adrianna
The first three Juleps are from the March It Girl box & the last two are add-ons I used my jules to get.
China Glaze Scattered & Tattered, Grafitti Glitter, Mosaic Madness, Bling It On, Razzle Me Dazzle Me, Glitz'n Pieces
I got these China Glaze polishes off of ebay for a decent price.  These polishes make up the Glimmers collection.

Hard Candy Peach Pop, Gummy Green, Cocoa Smore, Sugar Rush, Black Tie Optional
My Walmart finally has the new Hard Candy polishes & I picked these up tonight.  I completely forgot that there's a print out coupon for $1 off Hard Candy--I could have saved a few bucks.  I still want a few others (mostly the milky based ones) so I'll have to remember the coupon.

100th post--Zoya PixieDust!

Today's post is my 100th & what better way to celebrate than with the Zoya PixieDust collection?!
Zoya PixieDust collection
First up is Dahlia:
Zoya Dahlia
I'm thinking that this name is for the "Black Dahlia" Elizabeth Short.  Anyway, this polish is perfect black matte sparkle--applies like a dream (all of the PixieDust polishes do) & covers in two coats.
Zoya Chyna
OMG!  This polish is beyond beautiful!  The only PixieDust polish that doesn't have silver glitter, but the developers knew what they were doing--the red glitter makes this polish.  Covering in two coats, Chyna is deep, sexy & amazing--this should be the new classic red.
**Side note: Chyna is the name of the main character in Dean Koontz's book "Intensity"--the book is a must read!
Zoya Godiva
This polish covers in two coats & is an amazing nude.  I thought that this polish might look too tan on me, but it actually goes great with my skin tone.  I wore this three weeks ago to my wedding reception & it was flawless when I took it off after four days (besides the fact that I messed up both index & middle nails tying balloons).
Zoya Vespa
Vespa is a very light sea foam green that takes three coats to fully cover.  I really like this color, but (being a green lover) I wish they'd make a darker green PixieDust polish also.
Zoya Nyx
Nyx is a light periwinkle blue & it also takes three coats to cover.  This picture was taken after a week of wear & there wasn't much difference between these nails & the freshly painted ones.
Zoya London
London is a smoky grey polish & in the picture I have two coats on.  After seeing the picture I think three coats would have been better for this polish.

I love these polishes--my favorites are Godiva (for every day) & Chyna (for a bold, sexy look).  I can already say that these polishes are going to be my go-to polishes when I can't decide on what to wear since they go on in 2-3 coats & dry so quickly (I actually grabbed Nyx last weekend when I couldn't decide on what else to do with my nails).

The polishes sell for $9 each & can be bought from Zoya.

*These polishes were sent to me for my honest review.
