BrettyU, I paid $10, too. I figure it would cost me that much for one bottle, tax, and the gas to get there, if I were to go to Sally's to get polish, so this is a great deal.

I got an email from Zoya saying that they've increased their warehouse staff, so it should take less than 4 weeks to get all the orders out. Hope so, I need a mani-pedi now.

I was worried about my Zoya order, thanks for letting me know it could take that long! It says it was shipped 1/14 but there is no tracking on it. I want to try Sam dammit! Now!

Zoya Ray. The color is pretty, but the finish is a pretty heavy shimmer and shows brushstrokes pretty badly.

Dsotomayor- Song has been near my wish list, but I think I have to actually put it on the wish list now.
Betty U- Fantastic as always.

Zoya Kristen (first pic)is a pretty color, but a bit too cool for me unfortunately. I think I can still sort of pull it off though. It is closest to the thumb color. I should have listened to Susan. Kristen is mean, mean, mean!

The second pic is Essie Nice is Nice (lilac cream) with a coat of Pure Ice Minted. Minted adds a green flash/duochrome/pearl to any pale polish. If you like it, run to Walmart and pick up a 2$ bottle. It was discontinued at the beginning of the year, but you can probably still find a bottle. There is much more of a green flash IRL (unfortunately). The green and lilac often combine to make an icy pale tiffany blue color. Minted is also great over mint polish.

Try applying the final coat with a make-up sponge or a eyeshadow sponge applicator. This often helps with brushstroke-y polishes.

Super cute ring Fifi. Love it. It looks great with the red nail polish.

Ooh, I've never heard this tip before. I'll definitely have to try it. The color is so pretty and the brushstrokes aren't too obvious at arm's length, but they're pretty yucky close up.

I've been stalking this thread forever and so wish I could post. Like Yom, my manicures chip no matter what I do! Pedicures last and last, but I'm just really hard on my hands I guess. Over the last two days, I've been babying my feet (pumice, lots of lotion, moisture socks at night) in hopes of doing a pedi this weekend though. It's been forever since I've had cute colorful toes. I can't wait.

Did a mani this morning. China Glaze Liquid Leather on all nails and Color Club Snowflakes on the ring finger. This will probably chip today as my nails are peeling badly at the moment.

Daughter's pedi I did this morning too.

And I refreshed my pedi from last week which was China Glaze Blue Bells Ring. I put a coat of CG Blue Sparrow over it today. Sparrow is a matte blue jelly with really fine glitter. It looks horrible on its own but fabulous over BBR. The pic does not do it justice.
