I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend, my dear readers. Since I worked on Friday (and was supposed to have the day off) I won't be working tomorrow. My wallet is still crying from all of the sales this weekend!

Tonight I have a couple more polishes from the shimmer half of the summer collection from Zoya called Genesis and Mae. I know many people were excited about having a white shimmer, but Genesis ended up leaving most disappointed. Count me as one of those disappointed with it. It's a bright white (not quite a stark white, but more eggshell) shimmer polish. If it were more of a crelly I think the shimmer would have stood out more, but the thick formula tended to make the shimmer more subtle. You have to be careful with the application and use thin coats or you will have tons of streaking and balding.  

Mae is much simpler, and I can appreciate that. It's a bright magenta color with pink and silver shimmer. There are some comparisons of Mae to Gilda online and they are pretty close. Personally, I don't think you need to have both, but who am I to say? (I can't even estimate how many polishes I own...and how many potential dupes I have). The formula and application are more on par to what I'm used to with Zoya.

These retail for $9 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages.
