Zoya Charla – Matte! NOTM | Photos and Review

A quick post from a while ago. I’m still trying to play catch-up with you guys. I’ve been so out of it these past few weeks. Major shakeups at work, as well as getting two or three new jobs. Unfortunately, that means that this blog has fallen by the wayside. But now I think that everything is in order – at least for now. I have a bunch of stuff to post, including China Glazes’ On Safari collection, even though it’s almost Holiday season… I’m even going to try and review some fragrances as well.

So today for you I have Zoya Charla, which I cannot believe I haven’t had on here before! Ivanka and Charla are probably my favorite polishes from Zoya. Charla is a blue teal with golden shimmer. This color was last years “Chanel Peridot,” in that there were a thousand versions of the same color. One I can name off the top of my head is O.P.I. Catch Me In Your Net.

I wore this a few weeks back and decided to mix it up by applying a coat of Essie Matte About You.

It gave it that wonderful velvety sexy look to the glitter polish. It looked frosted and perfect. Obviously, with it being a matte polish now, it chipped fairly quickly, but that’s life.

Zoya Charla or any one of its twins are a must have. I prefer Zoya’s version more than any others. Ivanka, though, is a must have.

Become Bond. Come See The First Ever James Bond 007 Fragrance! [Press Release]

Introducing the first James Bond 007 Fragrance

Unleashing the essence of a quintessential male icon 

In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, the world’s first male fragrance dedicated to the legendary British spy is born: James Bond 007. The essence of a true icon, James Bond 007 fragrance is a classic and unmistakably masculine scent with a fresh, sophisticated twist – the ultimate scent for the modern man.

The Fragrance

The James Bond 007 fragrance is a signature scent for the Bond man: a unique fusion of traditionally authentic and unmistakably British ingredients shape a classic fragrance with a modern twist – a must have for the 21st century contemporary man.

At the time when the first Bond films of the 1960’s revealed the ultimate male icon, the world of men’s fragrance witnessed the dawn of the unofficial “hero” scent signature – the Aromatic Fougere. Only an Aromatic Fougere – the most virile, vibrant and bold of all perfume families – could bring to life the essence of Bond. A backbone of rich, reassuringly elegant lavender with undertones of moss and coumarin create the unapologetically masculine scent that is the James Bond 007 fragrance.

Vetyver, a Haitian ingredient brings undeniable power and strength blended with sensuality, captures Bond’s charming and refined characteristics. Crisp apple, the quintessentially British ingredient known for its fresh flavor, reflects the smooth side of Bond, and adds a refreshingly light quality that perfectly harmonises the heady Fougere. Sandalwood offers a full bodied essence which creates the fragrance’s long lasting and powerfully masculine qualities.

 Diamonds are forever, but tomorrow never dies with the James Bond 007 fragrance.  This signature scent releases your inner-Bond with its fusion of traditionally authentic and unmistakably British ingredients that give the classic fragrance a modern twist.  The must-have scent for the 21st century contemporary man embodies the duality of Bond – irresistible sophistication blended with uncompromising masculinity.
