In my previous post you could see Zoya Nidhi as my basecolor. This is such a pretty color, I have to show this on it's own. Nidhi is a warm red with tons of gold and silver glitter...very nice. It's part of the Sparkle collection from summer 2010 and that is an awesome collection; Charla and Ivanka!!!!
Enough, here are the pictures :)
This is two coats of Nidhi and I finished with Poshe. Luckily it didn't gave me shrinkage this time!!
Today yet another crackle polish. P2 already came with a black and silver version but I stumbled upon a brand new color, Gold Rush. A pretty gold with sparkles (just like the silver version)
Because I'm weak, I had to buy this polish... :') Let's take a look!
I took Zoya Nidhi as my basecolor (coz I was wearing this color) and applied one, not too thin, coat of Gold Rush. This crackle immediately comes to life. Within a few seconds it starts to crackle and it's ready for a glossy coat in just a minute. I adore this one!!! I'm not a gold person but hell yeah, good job P2!!
What do you think??
Have a good weekend,
If you want to see the other crackles, just click on the label under this post.
Finally it's weekend! Hope you had a good week, mine was rather busy..
Today I want to show you Zoya Kelly.
Kelly is a dark grey with purple tones in it. Sometimes it's grey but depending on the light it looks purple. I love this grey, it's cool!
Zoya Kelly is opaque in one coat, but I did two and finished with China Glaze Fast Forward topcoat. In the photo Kelly seems plastic/semi matte but I think my camera freaked out....It's shiny!
When I was browsing true the Zoya polishes I wondered why there are hundred of names but my name isn't! Well, maybe something for the future... Zoya Linnie, a bright dark blue with lots of green glitter in it! I would sign for it haha!!
^ Do you have a name-polish? Which one?
^ What would your name-polish be like if you could choose your own?
The Anchors Away collection from China Glaze is very nice! Not all the colors are ment for me but this polish is! Sea Spray is a light blue (not pastel) almost grey looking. In the sun it reveals a little secret, tiny shimmer! Super cute!
Please click to enlarge!!
In the sun
In the shade, no shimmer visible
In the sun, part two
I did two coats of Sea Spray and finished with David topcoat. The formula was good, so it applied nicely. I adore the hidden shimmer, they did a great job on this one!
Today just a NOTD. After Zoya Bijou I didn't have the time to totally re-do my nails. So I decided to layer China Glaze Ahoy! over Bijou. The color was good as a base because I only needed one coat to finish. The result is really pretty!!
Looking at swatches I've seen on other blogs, the color is still pretty accurate.
Today I'm wearing pink. Not just an ordinairy pink but a jelly. Not just an ordinairy jelly but a neon. Not just an ordinairy neon but a glass fleck!! Can you keep up?? It's like candy!! Zoya Bijou is the polish I'm rambling about! A great summer polish for a pedicure wearing flipflops! On to the pictures...
This is three coats and David topcoat. Because it's a jelly it has somewhat visible nailline, but it doesn't bother me. The polish is cool, too bad neons are hard to capture but I hope you'll get the idea.
On saturday I received my nailetc. package with a few new Zoya and China Glaze polishes. The first one I want to show you is Zoya Crystal from the Fire & Ice collection.
Crystal is a light blue foil with lots of gold sparkles. This is such a nice winter color. The gold sparkles in the sun, but because of the great timing I didn't get any photos in sunlight. Ugh, time for spring!
I applied three coats of Crystal. It was a bit on the thin side, but that didn't gave me any problems.
A few months ago I mentioned that Zoya doesn't like Nubar Diamont as a topcoat....Well, Poshe isn't her best friend either!!! Look at this, the picture is taken the morning after applying Crystal.
Shrinkage to tha maxx....yuck!
Does anyone have a topcoat that works great with Zoya?
I still have to try ChG Fast Forward Topcoat over a Zoya polish.
