100th Post: Zoya Yara

OMGIT'SOUR100THPOSTYAY!!!!  Holy cow, time sure flies when you're having fun!  I can't believe we've already made it to the big 100!  Triple digits - woo-hoo!  *raises the roof*  *happy dance!*

Over the weekend I realized something.  A revelation, perhaps (overdramatization).  I apparently wasn't kidding when I told you I was "like, obsessed, with these weird greeny-goldy colors lately."  Look what I've accumulated over the last month....

China Glaze It's Alive, Zoya Yara, Butter London Wallis, China Glaze Westside Warrior, China Glaze Zombie Zest

That'd be a glitter, a shimmer, a foil, a creme, and a glass-fleck.  I think my obsession has blossomed into a full-blown addiction.  But hey, admitting is the first step, right?  ;-)  I've already shown you Wallis, and I promise you the rest of these beauties are soon to follow.  I've got the lovely Zoya Yara for you today!

Yara is a muted olive green with gold irregular-shaped shimmer.  The shimmer shape reminds me of a glass-fleck style, but the overall finish is much more subtle.  It's not the sparkly kind of shimmer, but the kind that adds depth and richness.  The formula was amazing - almost a one-coater!  Two coats were all I needed for complete perfection.  Definitely click to enlarge these photos!

Ugh, I DIE!  This is so unbelievably beautiful.  I love it!  The color is gorgeous and the shimmer is just the cherry on top.  It's rich and warm and cozy - perfect for fall.  I love it so much I'm almost at a loss for words.  It's just stunning.  100% must-have for me.  I'm proud to have Yara star in the 100th post.  ♥

A huge thank you to everyone for sticking with us up until now!  I know 100 posts isn't a whole lot, but I really think we've come a long way, and I'm sure I speak for Jessie as well when I say we've had such a blast sharing our love of polish with you guys and watching our little blog grow.  GROUP HUG!  :-)

Stay tuned!  Super duper fun and exciting things might be right around the corner!
