Zoya Custom Color Nail Polish Swatches - Bibhu Mohapatra and Peter Som

Zoya Custom Color Nail Polish Swatches!

Custom created by the color expert at Zoya for fashion designers Bibhu Mohapatra and Peter Som. Each color designed to coordinate with the Fall/Winter 2012 fashions the designers debuted during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (MBFW - NY) and New York Fashion Week (NYFW) recently.

At this point in time, the custom colors have all SOLD OUT but we thought you may still want to see the nail polish swatches of Bibhu's gorgeous Rikha, Parveen and Zeenat plus the beautiful Evvie, Katharine (Katherine) and Audrey that Peter designed... rumor has it that some of the color can be found floating around out there if you really want it. 

See all of the Bibhu Mohapatra and Peter Som - Zoya Nail Polish swatches via the Lacquered Lover blog.

Man Glaze Lesbihonest

Good morning guys! Sorry, I've been MIA for the past few days. I've been so busy with work, and have been working extra long hours, due to a big meeting my company put on for our dealers. It has been so much fun though, between just getting out of the office, socializing with our dealers, open bar every night, and I must say I was very well behaved at, but not everyone can say that, which made it even better, Eagles cheerleaders and magicians. I will say though, I am exhausted, and cannot wait to get home to bed.

I meant to have some posts ready for you guys, but I swear the time just flew and I didn't have any time. So I am sorry.

For this post, I wanted to share a new polish brand, to me, I know it's been out there for a while, but I just purchased my first one. Their formula is amazing, and I will say, you kind of need a sense of humor to appreciate the names and bottles.

This is Lesbihonest from Man Glaze. It's a bright fuchsia matte, and I of course had to see what it would look like with a shiny top coat as well :) I'm officially hooked on their polish, and cannot wait to try more.

Fresh off the Runway - Whitney Eve NYFW Nail Look Promo

Whitney Eve and Zoya Nail Polish a beautiful combination of color and style!

The Zoya nail polish combination selected by Whitney Port for the debut of her Whitney Eve Fall 2012 Collection was one of the "hautest" and most wearable nail looks to happen during New York Fashion Week.

Zoya Nail Polish custom color featured in New York Times!

Zoya Nail Polish featured in the New York Times "Fashion and Style - on the runway" section!

Fashion and Beauty Writer Stephanie Rosenbloom spent a few moments with Zoya's Rebecca Isa to get the scoop on the limited edition Peter Som - Zoya collection. Two of which, Audrey and Evvie were featured on the runway and a complimentary third shade named Katherine. The LE collection, available exclusively on was a huge success for Zoya and has already sold out.

Stephanie also picked up a few expert nail polish application tips from Isa including this one... "one of the biggest errors people make is buying acetone-free remover, which has lanolin or other moisturizers in it and prevents color from adhering properly to the nail. “It’s the number one reason people have trouble with the polish...” >

2012 Color Club Blossoming Swatches!!!!

Morning guys! Yesterday when I got home from work, I was so excited to see the new collection, Blossoming, from Color Club waiting for me!Kim from Color Club sent them to me so I could show you guys.

These are all 2 coats :) Diamond Drops is part of the collection, and I did do 1 coat over each color so you could see. I must say, I'm really impressed with Diamond Drops. I was afraid it would be thick, and feel chunky when I had it on my nails, but not at all!!

Hydrangea Kiss (excuse the way my camera insisted to change my skin color)

China Glaze Liquid Crystal

Morning! Sorry I didn't post this weekend, we were all so busy. Friday night when I got home from work, I did have this beauty waiting for me though, it's China Glaze Liquid Crystal. This is from their Prismatics 2012 Spring collection. Now, I haven't seen them in stores anywhere yet, but I was so impatient, and ordered mine off of eBay, lol. I first saw this on Makeupalley, and vivi123 posted some of her swatches that were amazing!

Here is is with 2 coats and then a coat of SV, Seche Vite. I got one sunny pic, because the sun ran away almost as soon as I got this on :(

Then I decided to layer it over a blue since that is how I saw vivi123 used it.I used China Glaze Frostbite

This time I only did 1 coat of Liquid Crystal and then a coat of SV.
