Pretty colors! I'd like to see pics of Marina when you use it. It's been on my wish list forever.
Will do, CurliLocks. It may take a couple weeks before I get to it.

Zoya Meadow. I didn't like it at first, but it's growing on me.

Pictures aren't really accurate. Zoya describes it as: Soft medium pinkish peach with mauve undertones and warm frosty golden shimmer. Golden and flesh-toned, a sparkling nude for warm skin tones.

All I want is for all of my fingernails to be the same length.

It's all I want!

Me too! my index fingernails split or break all the time! I bought sally hansen
Triple strong a week ago and my nails feel so thick and strong, I love it! I'm hoping this helps them grow out.

Outside just painted my nails Zoya Helen. I like how long it makes my short nail beds look. It's the perfect nude for my skin tone

Thank you Minxy & Pink Sugar I picked the ring, and matching drop earrings, up at a local shop a few years ago. The person who made it does really nice work.


My phone camera is acting weird again today. I can not get a clear photo, so not my nails

So a few of my nails split so I had to take off my polish and pamper my injured nails for the past few days. Today I had enough and put some color back on I went with a galaxy nail art I used Hallys Comet by Orly,Ater Party by Orly, Space Cadet by Orly, My Boyfriend Scales Walls, by O P I ,then after sponging those colors on I put a coat of Fairy Dust by China Glaze and then used a top coat by O P I
I like how they turned out

Betty U- Love that nude on you.
Adorame- Great galaxy nails nails. Galaxy Nails have been on my to do list since RCC did them a long time ago. One day I too will have galaxy nails.

OPI Two Plums Up and then with a matte top coat. 3rd is my black and white pedi. Warning, my feet are not pinterest ready. Those women on pinterest have freakishly nice feet.

Zoya Akyra. I put it on Sunday night, since my Zoya order had just shipped and was to arrive Sat or Mon. But it got here today LOL! That's ok, I'll use one of them next time.

ETA: I got carried away and cut my nails a bit short.

Ick. I think I'd be constantly feeling like there was dirt on my nails. I like them to be smooth.

i was sort of thinking that too. plus i would wonder if the grit would snag my "highly textured" hair. i never really got into the matte thing for myself, smooth and shiny oh and sparkles are enough to make me smile. it is an interesting new product development. it seems there's been more new polish stuff in the past year than in the past 10 years combined.

Thanks. My sister told me I should grow my toenails to the end of my toes. Me: No way, I'll scratch the heck out of my legs. I tried it and my pedis do look better with longer nails and my legs are unscratched.

RCC posted a pic of one of the OPI sands on page 215. Jess the Mess on page 211. Zoya has a similar collection that is just coming out called the Pixie Dust collection.

I don't think I would like this collection either. I need smooth nails or I am sure I will pick on them!

I was thinking the same thing but zoya's pixie dust collection looks so pretty.

The liquid sand didn't catch on anything. It has a really smooth finish. I big puffy heart it.
