Remidner!! This is the LAST day to enter my giveaway! I will be randomly selecting a winner and emailing them tomorrow morning!

  1. I've actually heard that Zoya is sold in some beauty supply stores and salons. I've never encountered it personally, but who knows? My town isn't really all that up-to-date with their polish offerings, haha.

  2. Ok, thanks for pointing that out Jean! I'll add that.

  3. Hermosa Surfer girl looks seriously AMAZING! & I want OPI MMAH so badly :( I didn't want it when it first came out because it was so overhyped and glitters are such a pain to remove, but now I'm regreting not getting it and I can't find it anywhere!

  4. lol @ you putting in a red OPI.
    Because really...what would OPI be without red?

  5. I had no idea about BB Couture, so that was news to me. I never see the product and have no concept on it. Thanks for the great education!

  6. Actually BB Couture used to be .6 fl oz, but recently changed down to the standard .5 fl oz.

  7. Arrianne-Wow, ok that makes sense now why the bottles looked bigger they really were. Thanks for the info!
