Today is the big day! Well, for me it’s a big day… I’ll be spending this afternoon baking my very first apple pie! It’s been a few months, but my first attempt at pie making was pretty successful: peach! I inspired Alli to do a little peach nail art! Since I’ll be busy busy all day long with errands, cleaning, and baking, I decided to choose a fall appropriate sparkly red to put on my nails!
Karina made it’s debut in Fall of 2010 on the Wicked side of Zoya’s Wicked and Wonderful Collection(s). It’s a cool, bold metallic red packed with shimmer. It’s a perfect fun sparkly red. The shimmer adds a lot of depth which I absolutely adore in a polish. Better yet, this polish was perfect in two coats.
Sadly, this polish is no longer listed on Zoya’s website but it is available on Amazon! If all else fails, it is the season for sparkly reds and you’re sure to find one you adore.
So, what’s on your to-do list for the day? Stay tuned to my instagram for Apple Pie updates – and the occasional cute animal picture!
Have an awesome day, y’all!

Good afternoon! I hope you’re all having a marvelous Monday! Today I decided to explore the yellow side of my yellow/green obsession! So far this summer, I’ve leaned on the greener side with Covergirl’s Appletini, L’Oreal’s New Money, and China Glaze’s Budding Romance. More recently, I slowly started shifting to the yellow end of the […] Continue reading →
Okay! You win! I finally understand the textured polish trend! When OPI started releasing their Liquid Sand polishes – I just didn’t get it. I’ve always hated having bumpy nails and the idea of doing it on purpose? EEK! So I passed on those. But then…. I saw Zoya’s Pixie Dust promos… and knew right […] Continue reading →
Greetings fellow nail addicts. I am so excited to introduce you to my new nail polish obsession; Zoya Mimi. No seriously. Obsessed! Mimi has been a long time polish lemming of mine. I could just never justify picking it up. Finally I spotted it at Ulta during a recent shopping trip and pulled the trigger. […] Continue reading →
At this point it must have been over two years ago when I walked into Ulta to see they had started carrying Zoya. I was super excited because in high school I was a Zoya devotee. Well, 2 years later, and this is still the only Zoya polish in my collection. Go figure! Originally from […] Continue reading →
I was wandering around Ulta a week or two ago and they had tons of great polishes on clearance. A good selection of Zoya, China Glaze, and OPI – ironically it included Alli’s mega-lemming for the past 2 years – Dating a Royal – but I’d just sent her my bottle so I decided to […] Continue reading →
It’s no secret that I haven’t been really impressed by most of the Fall 2011 collections – but ZOYA’s Smoke & Mirrors did have a few that caught my eye. The ZOYA website describes Neeka as “a greyed amethyst with subtle red duochrome shimmer and bright gold glitter accents.” I agree completely but the “subtle […] Continue reading →
I love pinks! This is a very “me” color. Felicity is from the Spring 2008 Collection: Blissful. The Zoya description is right on when they describe it as a “soft dusty tea-rose pink with champagne and bright pink duochrome shimmer and flecks of gold.” The application was as nice as the color – smooth and […] Continue reading →
Crystal is the polish first made me really want to try Zoya and even then it was only because it was supposed to be quite similar to OPI’s Reflecting Pool. But… I didn’t want to order it online because that’s just not how I roll, not without trying Zoya first. Well my Ulta had […] Continue reading →
Oh so pretty. I ordered Indigo when Zoya had there big get 3 free promotion – I also got Crystal and Felicity. Since there’s a lot of hype about Zoya’s BOGO deal with the Summer collections, I thought I’d post this beautiful gem. Indigo is a gorgeous navy blue that is packed with multicolored microglitter […] Continue reading →
