Hey everyone!

I know that I haven't posted in quite a while, but like I said before working full-time can really suck. But I finally found the energy to do a post!

Last month I had ordered a bottle of OPI Silver Shatter from and it never came in the time frame Amazon said it would. Guess what was waiting for me in the family mailbox yesterday? My bottle of Silver Shatter. It took a MONTH for me to get the damn thing! And it had obviously had been delivered to my school mailbox before it came to my house since my house address was slapped over my school one. Epic mail fail seller I bought Silver Shatter from on Amazon or postal service. It's just like the time I was eight and my Mom got one of those Members only Beanie Babies back when they were all the rage; it took SIX MONTHS for that package to come. This wasn't as bad as the beanie baby package, but I was still pretty mad at the fact that this was something I should have gotten in 3-4 days of buying and it took 4 weeks to get it.

But as soon as I got it I had to play with it! I'm glad I didn't buy Fractured Foil at Walgreens now since I got my bottle of Silver Shatter in the mail!

I had yet to use my new bottle of Zoya Tart yet so I decided to put it on. I love this blue! It's a bright sapphire blue shimmer that went on smooth. If I wasn't a Zoya addict before, I am now! This was three coats before I added the Silver shatter to it. I put the Silver Shatter over Tart after it was fully dry. I've heard from other bloggers that it's best over tacky polish, but I think it worked just fine over dry polish. I'm not sure if it's because this was a Zoya polish or not, but if it is it's another reason to love Zoya! I love how this came out, and I feel that this is a good manicure for high school graduations in which the school colors are blue and silver/white like my high school was. So congrats Class of 2011, good luck in your future endeavors! Silver Shatter over Zoya Tart is an awesome look in which to receive your diploma with.

I already have Ivanka, but I really wanted Charla even though I have OPI Catch Me In Your Net which is a dupe for Charla, but it was two free polishes! I couldn't resist! But now this means I can wear Ivanka more since I'll have another bottle now, hehe! I also ended up getting Faye, Rica, Julieanne, Emme, Sooki (yes Sooki! I wanted her soo bad for a while now!), Anchor Base Coat, Armor Top Coat, and four spoons in Gilda, Lisa, Karina, and Ginessa. I'm not afraid to admit that I'm now a Zoya addict, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Hope that you all are having a good start to your week and if any of you are still in school, good luck!
