Zoya Valerie + My Melmers!

Hey gals! So today it's raining a LOT here where I am and it made me want to wear a very fall type color... I don't know why but that's just how my brain works. I was looking in my stash for a LONG time before I made up my mind and chose Zoya Valerie. It's a gorgeous burgundy type base with gold and wine duochrome glass fleck... I only wish I would have caught that on camera! Anyways, here it is:

I tried reeeeeally hard to capture the shift but I just couldn't so here's a pic that shows the fleck colors well in the bottle:

Also, I got new melmers! For those of you who don't know what melmers are, they are JetMax cubes that can be bought at Michael's, Target, AC Moore... I got mine at AC Moore. Well actually, my boyfriend got them for me because I was in class when they were having a sale. They sell for $35 each but because AC Moore had an earlybird type special, my boyfriend got them at $15 each! Of course I paid him back but he was kind enough to wake up early to go for me :) Anyways, assembly was NOT 15 minutes, as it states on the instructions page. It took me longer because I decoupage'd them as well, something I learned about through Rebecca's tutorial, but I doubt that it will take anyone 15 minutes to assemble, unless you're some sort of powerdrill/Speedy Gonzalez hybrid... anyways, here they are:

I hope you like them! :) Thanks for reading!


  1. OMG! That polish is AMAZING!

  2. ahhhh i love that polish!!! i was on the fence about it.. but now i must get it!

    and love your melmers! someday, i'm sure I will need to upgrade to one, haha :)

  3. Your melmer is so pretty! I only have one, but I haven't decorated it or anything so it's all white and boring :( Btw, does yours squeak really badly when you push it in? My bottom drawer is really heavy, and it makes this terrible noise when I pull the drawer and it makes me want to rip my ears off D:

  4. whoa, I hadn't realized that I didn't respond to these comments ): I'm terribly sorry.

    @ imfeelingnail-venturous: I agree, I kept looking at my hands :)

    @ Desiree: I'm glad I persuaded you to get it :) and thank you! I'm sure you'll need one too, collecting polish is addictive :)

    @ OliviasNailArt: I agree :)

    @ Eileen: Thank you! And no, I haven't experienced that...maybe it's all the weight? I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you figure out what the problem is soon! :)
