These earrings are set in 925 sterling silver with a 950 platinum overlay. (Platinum, I know right, I really love my hubby!!!) There are 4 small chrome or Russian diopsides in each earring, 1 on top, 2 in the middle and 1 on bottom. They are kind of hard to see in the pic but they stand out in life. The top flower is done in rhodalite garnet and the bottom flower and drop brio bead are amethyst. Aren't these great for both spring and summer? I wear them whenever because I just love them so much, but I think they are best suited to months when the flowers grow.

Zoya is a recent love of mine. I found them some time ago on the internet and was hesitant to spend so much to try out a good sampling. It took awhile but I found a local outlet that had them and bought a few on sale. I have ordered several now. :)
I used three coats of this Zoya Diedra for this manicure to make sure it was a nice solid color on my nails. I love the lavender with gold shimmer in it. This polish dries quickly, I love it.
I applied one thick coat of Sally Hansen Crackle Nail Polish in Antiqued Gold to match the already gold shimmer in the polish and I must say I like the romantic look of it.
I applied one coat of China Glaze Holographic top coat to finish the manicure. I like the way it brings out the sparkle of the duo together but i think I might have been just as happy with Seche Vita. LOL!! I gave you a couple shots of this to look at none the less.

And a second shot of the duo.
For this manicure I finished up with one coat of China Glaze Matte Magic, which I love dearly and it didn't diappiont me this time either. All in all a great mani, even though I don't like the 80's style much.

This next shot is of Ring My Shell with one coat of Sally Hansen Crackle nail polish in Vintage Violet. I actually like where this is going. The formula on this crackle was a bit thinner then the others I have tried but still dries super fast.
I decided to finish the manicure off with China Glaze Matte Magic as a top coat. Although I like the effect I think the above swatch without it was better. Maybe next time I will use my fav Seche Vita top coat instead.
