Black and White Polka Dots

I put the "pro" in "procrastinate." Seriously. I'm pretty much awesome at it. I should be writing a paper that is worth 50% of my grade right now. It's due on Tuesday and I only have two pages done. Oh, and I haven't started the Powerpoint that goes with it. But hey, nails are MUCH more exciting, right?! 

That being said, onto the manicure! I took full advantage of the Mother's Day offer that Pampered Chef was giving away on Facebook at the beginning of May. It was $20 to spend at Bloom.com, which offers all kinds of beauty-related products. How they're affiliated with Pampered Chef, I'll never know. Anyways, since I'm a self-described obsessive Zoya lover, I used my $20 for some Zoya polish! Hey now, get off my back, I had already purchased a super cool, best Mother's Day gift EVER for my mom! ;) I chose some Zoya's from the Beach Collection. I don't know what is it, but lately I've been in LOVE with creme polish! I think summer played a part in this. One of the polishes I ordered was Reagan. She's a really beautiful cream magenta. She could seriously be opaque in one coat. Yep, a one coater. I did two coats because I'm still not comfortable with one coat. I always feel like it will come back to bite me in the butt somehow. 

Reagan can be a summer color, but after wearing her for nearly a week now, I think I've decided I'd wear her more in the fall or winter rather than the summer. Not that I really ever subscribe to the notion that polishes can only be worn during a certain time. I rock a neon pedicure nearly all winter! :) She just seems like a fall color to me. However, she turned out a little brighter in the pictures than she is in real life, so bear that in mind. After my two coats of Zoya Reagan, I also did two coats of Nubar Black Polka Dot and Nubar White Polka Dot. These are new additions to my collection and I LOVE THEM. The black consists a larger hexagonal and small circular black glitter. The glitter is not sparkly at all. The white consists of larger hexagonal and smaller circular white glitter that is more iridescent than sparkly. They are both awesome polishes that I would highly recommend. I did, however, have to fish around just a little bit for the larger glitter pieces. These pictures were taken indoors without flash on a sunny day! Enjoy! :)
