Eye See You

     So last week Zoya was having this Back To School BOGO type sale for existing accounts. The sale was Buy one get one, but if you got six you got free shipping, so of course I got six! This nude is one of the colors that I bought. It's called Avery and oh my gosh it's the most perfect nude I've ever owned ever! I am so glad I got this color because I almost didn't buy it!

     I am so surprised at Avery. Most of the nude colors I have are not opaque in one coat like this is, or they are too dark or too yellow for my skin tone. This color is almost a perfect match to me skin tone (the flash in the picture made the color look slightly more dark than in real life.) It's also nearly opaque with one coat and it dries super fast.

     I obviously really loved this nail polish, but I didn't want just plain nude nails, so I added an eyeball! The eye color is Illamasqua Nomad and the black I used is Essence Black is Black. The White, as always, is Essie Blanc. I used a medium striper brush and dotting tools to draw the eye.

I know this isn't a back to school mani, but Happy Back to School for anyone going back! Good Luck!

Quick Update About URLs

  Hey guys! I just wanted to write this quick update about my changed URL. I changed my Blogspot and Tumblr URLs to and I changed these so all of my sites would match and it wouldn't be so confusing for me and my site visitors and so that my watermark, email, and instagram account could all match.

   Now all of my sites are zoendout, including Beautylish, Instagram, Tumblr, Blogspot, Bloglovin', and my email are now all the same.

Girl's Gotta Eat

     Here is another Serum No.5 nail polish that I purchased. Girl's Gotta Eat is a beautiful glitter nail polish that consists of mostly gold glitter along with silver/platinum colored hex glitter. It's also in a gold shimmer base and I can tell you that this nail polish is amazing. I honestly don't think I've seen anything like it. I love the name too "Girl's Gotta Eat" isn't that a quote from Dark Knight Rises? I'm pretty sure Catwoman says that. That makes me like it even more than I already did.

     Anyway, I did a glitter gradient type thing with this over Essence Black is Black and my ring finger is three coats of Girl's Gotta Eat over Essence Gold Rush.

Day Glow

     A beautiful pastel yellow by day and a bright glowing green by night, Day Glow from Serum No.5 is a new favorite of mine. I've layered two coats of this over a white to have a completely opaque color.
     My accent nail is Serum No. 5 Mint To Be. It's a seafoam color with small silver hexagon glitters.

     Oh man, am I excited for this!  I finally scored a bottle of Floam from Ninja Polish. I've been waiting for this to be restocked for a while now, and when I saw a post on Instagram about it being available I jumped at the chance to get this! It finally arrived today, and I was so excited that I had to take off my other mani just to put this on.

Hit the jump for awesome pictures :D

Sugar Plum Fairy

      Hey guys! I'm really sorry for the lack of updates recently. I've had nail block, like writers block, I keep doing my nails and then hating how the come out and I end up taking them off an hour later. 

     Since I've been getting so frustrated, I decided I'd just use my favorite glitter, Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy. It's a multicolored holo glitter. It's pretty amazing looking. That's why I included a ton of pictures with different angles to show the amazingness.

     This was about 2.5 coats. I say 2.5 because I did two coats and then fixed parts that looked like they had nail showing.

       Metallic colors are a huge trend for 2012. Lots of nail polish companies have come out with metallic collections for this year. Personally, I'm not really into metallic nail polish colors that much, but I thought I'd try some out anyway.

What I used
  • Sinful Colors Casablanca
  • Sinful Colors Leap Frog
     Casablanca is a silver metallic. The formula is really nice and smooth. I'm actually really surprised that I like this color. I started out thinking that this was going to be a dud. It's not, and it's really beautiful. 

     Leap Frog is what I would call a dark green gray color. The formula of this one is awesome and this color is really opaque in two coats. It looks slightly more green in real life. 

   These color actually look really beautiful together, and I'll admit that I love this metallic silver.

Open Seas

       Time for another gold leaf gradient! This time I used one of my new Sinful Colors polishes, Open Seas. It's a really pretty sea foam green color. I also used some Essie Gold as it Gets on my ring finger with the gradient.
