Got the Keys to The New Place!

Yippee! So with all this move talk should I post pics of the new place? If you all want to see I may post some once we are unpacked.

So since I have a ton to do, I just wanted to post a really quick pic of one of the new Zoya's from the Reverie collection. 

This one is Gwin. It is a bright orange polish. I am having a love/hate relationship with this color. It is so vivid and the shimmer coming through is awesome. But I feel the orange needs to have some kind of pink or brown undertone to it. As it is, it is like a bright pumpkin orange. This was actually my manicure for the week, but I had to change, I just couldn't wear it another day. I had used a base coat and it still stained my nails! So pissed about that one! I had to soak and buff and then put strengthener on my nails just to remove some of the staining. But the color is still captivating, but I think this will become a pedicure color. I just don't think I can wear it on my hands.

This was taken in natural but not direct light. It looks so pretty here, but inside under fluorescent lighting it is pure orange and since I spend most of my day inside for work, I have to love the color inside. But see how pretty it can look?

Look at the shimmer! I love the flash in this one. This is what it looks like inside, just not as flashy. This is the orange color that bugs me. But it is still so pretty. See what I mean? Love/Hate! 

Why can't it just always look like this? Perfect! Oh well, I will enjoy this one on pedicures instead.

I am wearing Zoya Happi today. I took pictures, and when I have a bit more time I will post that one. I am hoping to swatch the rest of the collection this weekend.


  1. Yay for you!!! I would love to see pictures of your new place.

    I like picture 1 & 3. It's pretty on you :D

    Hey are you closer to Orlando?

  2. Ah wow!! Looks very pretty!!!

    Yay for the new house :D

  3. This colour is amazing! It's so refreshing and bright.

  4. Congrats on the new house!!! Can't wait to see pics of it!!

    I have the same color! When Zoya had the sale that was the first one I chose! I am loving oranges right now. Since I have red hair I steered clear of the color growing up but now I realize certain shades look awesome on me!! So the love of orange has extended to me!

  5. This is so pretty! I think they did a good job with this collection, there's been so many swatches of these pretties, I haven't seen a bad one yet.

  6. would love to see photos of your new space if you're willing to share, I enjoy viewing floorplans. :) I go visit model homes for just that reason (and RV shows! LOL)
    I have never been a fan of this collection, even checked 'em out at the store tonight. meh.

  7. I will take some pics of the new place and post once we are unpacked - or mostly unpacked. Maybe you guys can give me design ideas!

    RMcandlelight - I am just moving off the military base we currently live on. So still 45 mins from Orlando. I will still be there all the time!

  8. I hope the unpacking goes well.

    I think Gwin looks fabulous! The photo with flash is wow!!

  9. I LOVE Florida!! Every summer I go to the Ormond Beach - just north of Daytona - which is an hour east of Orlando, straight down I4. If the job market was better I would definitely think of moving down that way. How do you like living in FL?

  10. I LOVE FL. I don't ever want to leave. However having lived in CO, I love it there too. I just hate the snow. But if the man can not retire from the military here, we will head back to CO. We are originally from MA & love it, not enough to ever want to move back. It's great to visit, but not for me.

    The job market isn't the best here right now and it might get a little worse before it gets better, but I got here right when things were starting to get bad, just at the beginning of all the lay offs and it only took me 3 months to find a job. Not to bad overall.
