Nail mail + new hair!

Hello, dear readers! 
Tonight's post is pretty exciting in my opinion. I have seven new babies + my new hair to show you all!

First up,
my new Zoya polishes that I purchased in their 'buy three get three free' (say that five times fast) promo last week. Zoyas for $4 a piece, hellz yeah! 8)

L-R: Lola, Trixie, Skye
L-R: Yara, Maisie, Edyta
I've wanted Trixie for the longest time and I've been so adamant about buying only colors that I didn't have anything like, so I decided to go back to my comfort zone and treat myself with Lola, as well. As for the others, I tried to choose my colors wisely and go for some that I wouldn't normally buy. 
I was a little apprehensive about choosing Skye because obviously not all nude tones look good on everyone and I don't have ANY, so I basically took a stab in the dark. I must say that I am very, very pleased with my decision. :)
I'm definitely most excited about using Edyta. I MEAN JUST LOOK AT IT. It's like space in a bottle! :robot I love me some space, too. 

Moving along.
The other package I received was from Jenna at Lacquistry

I'm not sure why the bottle says that this is Silver Holo Shredded because I ordered Silver Shards, and this  is very different from the swatches I've seen of Silver Holo Shredded. :P Anyway, Jenna describes Silver Shards as "Silver pieces suspended in a clear base. Some pieces in this one are a bit bigger than the Shredded, so this falls into the Shards Family." 
I actually bought this last month and had paypal address issues/forgot about it (doh!) so once Jenna ever so graciously got things taken care of for me, I got it in like two days or something crazy like that. Jenna's polishes are $8.75 + $3 US shipping right now and you can purchase them at her Etsy shop right here. This one is currently not for sale. I did a combo with this bad boy tonight and I'm in love, for real. But that's for next time's post. ;)

And here's my hair (before and after), just for kicks. Please excuse the poor cellphone quality. 
Before: straight bangs + dark to light brown ombré

After: (shade) switched back to side bangs + daaark brown with one bright red panel on the right side. 
Sunlight. You can see the contrast between the two colors a little better in this one.
I am a HUGE fan of having in-your-face, bright red hair, so I'm ecstatic to have it back in my life. I really like it on the one side and how it only goes through part of my bangs/around my face, too. :L I tried to get a better picture in the sun with my actual camera but the wind was extremely angry today, so I'll try again tomorrow. :D

So how do you like my new pretties/hair?! 
Did you participate in the Zoya promo? If so, which polishes did you get?
