Rock-ta-puss...



It's the final day of the rainbow challenge with The Digital Dozen. Today I have a fun rainbow look for you! It reminds me of octopus tentacles!! Of course from a fun, rainbow colored octopus though!  I actually had the most fun with this one and I think at the end of the day it turned out to be my favorite of the whole challenge.  It's sort of sublet but it's also fun and summery.  I always really love white nails and nail art with a white base so this one was a winner for me.  I hope you enjoyed the challenge! To see what colors I used for my designs this week you can visit my post from day one. :) Check out the other girls art below!






Crack me Up...


Today's nails are a bit of a replay design!  I really loved the look I did for day one and I wanted to put something over the top of it so that the rainbow and glitter would just peek through.  It's been so long since I broke out a crackle nail polish and while I know a lot of people hate them I'm not one of them! I think they're so much fun and they can really add dimension to your design but without being too difficult or time consuming.  So I threw some on the look and I loved it.  I still loved the swirly brush strokes though so I decided to include both looks for this weeks challenge. :)  I used China Glaze Lightning Bolt for my crackle on this design.  Check out the other girls art below!!


Put Me In the Zoo...


Today is day three of the Digital Dozen rainbow challenge and today I have some fun leopard spots for you!  This look actually reminds me a lot of a Dr. Seuss book I read as a child called, Put Me In the Zoo.  That's the one where Spot wants to be in the zoo so badly that he does all sorts of crazy and fun things with his spots including turning them various rainbow shades. :)  I also really love leopard so any excuse to put it on my nails is good enough for me!  Please check out the other ladies art below!!



Dots the stuff...



It's day two of the Digital Dozen's rainbow challenge and I'm still struggling with the lighting situation but hopefully it's a little better today than yesterday at least.  For today I did some rainbow colored dots. :)  I started out with the idea of doing this as a blobbicure but three tries later the stupid little dots STILL did not want to spread and since I was losing daylight I just decided to do it as a standard dot mani.  It's still really cute but it wasn't the original plan.  Oh well...can't win 'em all!  Check out the other girls art work below!


The Digital Dozen DOES....Rainbow!


Well it's that time again! It's time for another week of Digital Dozen art. :) This week we're doing rainbow for our theme.  It's also Spring/Summer time again and since I moved into my house just last fall I'm now in that awkward place where I'm trying to find the best lighting options in my home.  So you'll have to unfortunately bear with me a little bit while I grow into my new place. :)  Anyway I used all of the same colors for this weeks challenge and just mixed up my designs a bit to keep things interesting. The colors I chose to use are all by Zoya and they are: Hannah, Dory, Ness, Cam, Liv, Pippa, and Purity.  For today's design I made things a little fun by adding some glitter polish to the top.  The only thing I really didn't love about these nails was that the colors didn't blend quite as much as I wanted them to. It seemed to go best on my middle finger. Still they were bright and sparkly so I can't complain! :) Check out the other girls art below!


Zoya Seashells Summer 2016 Collection


Today I have the other half of the new Zoya summer 2016 collection for you! These are the Zoya Seashell collection. They are all new pixie finish polishes and they're all GORGEOUS! I've swatched all of these with two coats in natural light. They're much sparklier than my camera shows but  you can always check out my Instagram @Bee_Polished for some videos of them in their sparkly glory! You can also check it for two swatches of Zoya's new LIPSTICK collection. :) These were provided to me for my honest review. Here we go!!


Bay can be best described as a sky blue, textured PixieDust with fine silver and gold glitter creating a dreamy effect.

Levi can be best described as a beige gold, textured PixieDust with medium holographic hex glitter. This shade was designed to update a classic neutral pixie with a little more glam!


Linds can be best described as a cherry red, textured PixieDust with red and fuchsia glitter to mimic the look of maraschino cherries dipped in sugar!


Tilly can be best described as a starry grey, textured PixieDust with a small holographic glitter interwoven with a darker gunmetal. Perfect for hot nights out on the town!


Zooey can be best described as a classic pink, textured PixieDust laced with a fine thread of gold and medium sized holographic hexes for an added layer of dimension.


Cece can be best described as a full impact green, textured PixieDust with a thin vein of gold creating a fizzy lemon-lime effect.

Zoya Sunsets Collection Summer 2016


Today I have some new Zoya's for you to see!  These were provided to me for my honest review. This summer's new collection is a two part, as per usual but what's different about this one is that one half of the collection, Seashells, is new PIXIES(!) and the other half, Sunsets, is ONE COAT polishes. So lots to be excited about this year!  Today I have the Sunsets collection and later in the week I'll have the Seashell's collection for you to see.  One thing about these one coat polishes is that they ARE one coat BUT...you do need to use a medium coat to get the one coat coverage. You can also use two thin coats as you normally would. These are all swatched in natural light with no top coat as per usual. Here we go!


First up is Brynn. Described as a popsicle pink she's a bright, fun color perfect for summer!



Next we have Cam. She's a deep, fully saturated orange. Again this one is a nice, bright, summery shade.


This stunner is Dixie and while I usually am not a fan of reds and pinks I have to say I am in LOVE with this juicy watermelon red. This color is sooo super flattering!


This is Dory and much like the fish she's a vibrant cornflower blue.  This one is super bright and fun!


Then we have Liv.  She's a fun-filled purple with a slight magenta lean.  I thought this one was also really flattering. 


Last but certainly not least we have Ness, a softened jade green with a hint of blue.  This one was one of my favorites but it's no secret that I love a good green!  Which one is your favorite?  Pick these up by visiting Zoya.com! :)
