First Impression Zoya’s Color Lock System

My First Impression on Zoya’s Color Lock Nail Treatment System

Zoya color lock system

 

I received my Zoya Color Lock Nail Treatment System on Thursday, Jan 2 and I was so excited to try this system out.  If you haven’t seen my post on the arrival and contents of the system click HERE.

This system is suppose to keep your nail polish looking fresh and keeps the polish in place for an extended time.

I removed my old nail polish with the Remove +, it also preps your nails for the nail polish.  I put a coat of the Anchor on, which is the base polish, then I chose the color Normani from the Zoya Naturel Collection.  I put on two coats of the Normani then I put the Armor (Top Coat) on.  After that I put a drop of the Fast Drops on each nail to get them dry fast.

I normally schedule a time to do my nails where I know I won’t be doing anything with my hands.  It’s normally always when I’m lounging on my couch watching a show.

The Fast Drops seriously made my nail polish dry fast.  I kept doing the thumb print test to see if it would smudge a little.  I think it dried in less than 10 minutes.
To me that’s fast considering having put 4 coats of products on my nails.

Here’s a few pictures.  Now I forgot to take a picture when I first put the products on.  I was too into the show that I was watching then fell asleep.

These pictures are with the  Zoya Color Lock System on for 3 days.
Not one smudge, bubbling,  chip, or tip fading.

I’ve read several reviews with different opinions on this system.

One from The Polish Addict and one from Scrangie.
I started to get nervous when I started reading the reviews because at one point Scrangie had terrible bubbling in her first review HERE  but had since did another review HERE.

So far so good for my personal nail thoughts.

I’ll keep you posted on my final thoughts and review on the Zoya Color Lock System.

Until next time Dolls

Have you tried this system out yet or do you have another system that you use?

beautyblender review

Beautyblender FilipinaMacBarbie

beautyblender is a beautiful miracle!

I finally took the plunge and purchased the award-winning beautyblender.   I have been on the fence for a while because of the price of a sponge.

I’ve bought the lookalikes before and didn’t like them so I didn’t give them much thought because of the cost and I already have my MAC and Sigma brushes.

I was in Sephora last weekend and took the plunge.  It’s an early Christmas present for me.

Well well well…..

It is so worth the $20!

I put my foundation on a flat glass container and put a little water on my beautyblender and dabbed the foundation with the bigger side of my beautyblender and dabbed away at my face. It is a flawless look.  Then with the tip of the beautyblender I dabbed my MAC concealer under my eyes to hide my dark circles and highlight.  So excuse the next picture because it does have some products on it.

The beautyblender website describes it as:

The original beautyblender® is a revolutionary makeup sponge applicator with 360 degrees of usable surface for creating absolute complexion perfection. This five-time Allure Best of Beauty Award-winner is ergonomically designed to meet your makeup needs. beautyblender® is the first high definition, neon pink sponge application tool that gives you everything from amazingly sheer coverage to a buildable full coverage.

Would I purchase this again?

Most definitely YES!!!!

I think my brushes are going to be just a little jealous for a while.

Until next time Dolls….

What are your thoughts and experience with the beautyblender??
