Dotted Nail Art With Zoya

I keep a Pinterest board full of nail art I'd love to try someday and today's nails were inspired by the wonderful So Nailicious and her lovely dotticure from this summer.
I used Zoya Chanelle for my base color and then picked fun summer colors for this transitional time between summer and fall. From left to right Wendy, Tilda, Rocha, & Darcy. Easy enough to do on both hands and one of my favorite manicures of the year!
 
I love this shirt! Another old Threadless t-shirt that I just had to have for some reason. Looks like a cute bunny in the first shot, but Mr. Choppy's true nature is revealed below!

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Genevieve

Zoya Genevieve is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Genevieve is described as a leather grey creme by Zoya but it actually has a hint of hidden shimmer making it the odd man out in this collection. The formula is thinner than the rest of the collection and goes on streaky in the first coat. All looks great by the second easily applied coat though. Genevieve is darker than I normally go for but I don't have a polish quite like it so I'm keeping her for sure.
 
I love this weird sci-fi series from Jeff VanderMeer called The Southern Reach Trilogy! You can see what else I've been reading on Goodreads.
Thanks for reading!

Simple Nail Art With Milani

Earlier this year I struck manicure gold when I did these stunning nails with my beloved China Glaze 2NITE holo polish. Since I liked the look so much I decided to do something similar with some Milani polishes. Here we have Milani Fresh Teal with a wide strip of Milani HD. I love it & it's so easy!

Fall Color Blocking With Zoya

I keep a Pinterest Board full of nail art ideas and used this pin of a gorgeous Gucci dress as inspiration for today's nails.
I started with a base of Zoya Spencer and then used masking tape to add Zoya Sasha and finished it off with a freehand stripe of Zoya Toni. Perfect for fall and easy enough to do on both hands!

Zoya Claire

Zoya Claire is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Claire is a rich dark burgundy leaning toward brown that never looks black even in low light. It's a little darker than I normally go for but the formula is truly excellent and it is a very fall appropriate shade. Definitely a keeper!

Milani Fresh Teal

Milani Fresh Teal is shown here at 2 coats. Milani Neons like this one have been popping up at Dollar Trees around the country recently so keep an eye out if you like neons! Fresh Teal has a good formula and is a definite keeper for me. The only thing I don't like about this line is the painted bottles. The polish color is actually quite different than the bottle but if you can find it for a buck they are a great value.

Gradient With Zoya Emilia & Maria Luisa

Time to start using some fall colors! I started with Zoya Emila and then added a super quick gradient in Zoya Maria Luisa. Definitely a winning combination!

Simple Nail Art With Sally Hansen

I like using textured polishes for nail art. Here we have Sally Hansen Berried Under with some very basic nail art in Sally Hansen Cinny Sweet. Simple but I like it quite a bit.
