Tuesday Pretties// Zoya Nails & Brittany Fuson Beauties

Welcome to Tuesday Pretties hosted by Niki from Glossy Blonde. I am so excited Niki asked me to be a guest co-host again and have some fun things to share with you today!

I go through phases with my nails. I like to try new things, such as the Nex Gen manicure I told you about last month. Then, I want to do my own nails every Sunday night from the comfort of my home.
One thing is for sure...I like trying new things. I tried a new nail polish that I am in love with. Zoya nail polish is inexpensive, goes on smooth and lasts about 2 weeks. 
My Essie polish, while I love the colors, has not been lasting long at all lately. I simply don't have the time to paint my nails every few days. I was going through my massive supply of polish recently and found a bottle of Zoya that I have never used, so I tried it  and loved the results.

A little info about Zoya polish:
-It goes on thick, but smooth and easy
-Takes more drying time than what I'm used to
-$9 a bottle most places

Zoya's fall line has some amazing color and I can't wait to purchase a few. Sansa and Tiegen are stunning and are perfect fall colors. I always use the Revlon Colorstay GelShine Top Coat to help make my nails shiny and keep the color on longer. I swear by it. 

I also wanted to share the most darling planner I received in my mailbox last week! I absolutely adore Brittany Fuson's work. I ordered her bridesmaid cards to ask my best friends to stand by me on my wedding day and also have some of her prints.

The Brittany Fuson 2015 planner is available for order.

Necklace: Frou Frou & Frill found here

Each month has a fun, colorful design and the pages are adorned with fashionable females. Talk about girl power!! 

I already marked off the most important date of 2015 ...more information to come about that later this week on the blog.

  1. I've never tried Zoya, will have to check it out! That planner is so cute!

    1. Zoya is amazing. I highly recommend it. And I love Brittany Fuson's work! Thanks for reading Julia!

  2. I love Zoya polishes! I think Zoya and Formula X are my two favorite brands, hands down! I love that color too, so pretty!

    1. I have Formula X on my list to try based on your recommendation ;) We got another new line at our salon called Smith & Cult and I am DYING to get a manicure now! Thanks Niki for letting me co-host! XO!

  3. I've never tried out Zoya but I'll try any brand once ;).y current favorite is gelish, only because it does with my at home gel kit. I haven't given in to the Essie fad, although it's seems like I may be the only blogger who hasn't. I just ordere y blog planner and can't wait for it to get here. Isn't it funny the things that make bloggers excited?

    1. at home gel kit sounds amazing! I'm jealous over here! Essie has some amazing colors, but out of the numerous colors I have only about 3 really last over a week. I'm disappointed in their brand lately! Planners are a MUST! hehe...thanks for reading friend!
