Happy Spring Nails With Zoya

My boyfriend Will suggested this adorable pairing that's perfect for spring & Easter. I started with Zoya Hudson and then added a messy half moon of Zoya Rina. It reminds me of Easter basket grass from my childhood!

Zoya Brooklyn & Cosmo!

Glitter gradients are the best! Here I started with Zoya Brooklyn and then added a bit of Zoya Cosmo starting at the base of my nails. This look reminds of a gorgeous jewel encrusted ball gown, something you could wear on the red carpet; I love it!
I am a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile!

Glitter Gradient With Sation Tira Miss-U & Tall Dark & Has Some

Sation Tall Dark & Has Some is perhaps my all time favorite glitter topper. (This is the fourth time I've used it!) I decided to pair it with Sation Tira Miss-U, a new but already beloved edition to my stash. Pretty combo & you just can't go wrong with a super easy glitter gradient in my opinion!

SoFlaJo Purple Reign Of Terror

SoFlaJo is an indie brand that makes lots of interesting polishes. Purple Reign of Terror is from her 2012 Terrified Halloween collection. It's a very dark purple jelly with sparse holographic glitter. Very streaky& sheer at first. Shown here at 3 coats. I think it would have been prettier with more holographic particles, but it's too dark for me anyway. I'll pass this along to friend that likes vampy polishes.

Layering With Zoya Mosheen & Frida



Zoya Mosheen was originally part of the Aqua Di Lara limited edition set but is now part of their holiday 2013 collection, Zoya Zenith.

Zoya Mosheen is a sheer blue jelly polish with tiny turquoise bar glitter & scattered holographic shimmer. I tried it over two coats of Zoya Frida. Mosheen is very pretty & unique, but not really my style so I"ll probably pass it along to a friend.

Zoya Payton



Zoya Payton is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection.
Zoya Payton is a deep dark purple jelly polish packed with scattered holographic glitter. Nice formula that covers in just two coats. It's a bit darker than I normally like but it's such a truly beautiful polish that I'm keeping it for sure!

Festive French Manicure With Zoya

Sometimes I don't have any clear ideas in my head but still want to do something with my nails. I thought this manicure was kind of blah when I finished it. Then I saw it in the mirror while I was getting ready for bed & changed my mind. I started with Zoya Sunshine & then added a french tip in Zoya Holly topped with Zoya Rina. I love all of the texture & there is just enough holo in Rina's bar glitter to make this one feel like party worthy nails. I wore it with a cute red & grey dress & felt ready for the holidays.

Witches Cauldron Nails With Sation

Sometimes a cool idea just doesn't quite turn out the way you want it too. I got the idea from the blog Top Coat It who posted these amazing cauldron nails last year. I decided to make the cauldrons half moons & use a different polish for each spell. Great idea in theory but the end result is a bit of a mess. Maybe I'll try again next year.
I started with Sation Lemon Pearl then used my Silver Sharpie & a Sally Hansen Nail Art pen for the Cauldrons. Next up we have five Sation glitters! From pinky to thumb: Calorie Countess, Ego Friendly, For Better Or Never, Rich In Opportunities, & Tall Dark & Has Some.

Layering With Wet N Wild Once Upon A Time

I wanted to get Wet N Wild Once Upon A Time to look like it does in the bottle. I originally tried just using it alone but the dark grey jelly base was just too streaky. Next I tried one coat of Sation Seriously Slate & got the look I was going for, still obviously a jelly base color but no streaks. Fun layering combination for Halloween!

Glitter Gradient With JENsations Rainbow Sprinkles & Sation Off The Record Pink

Here's a pretty & delicate glitter gradient that I love! I started with a base of Sation Off The Record Pink then topped it with one coat of the fabulous Rainbow Sprinkles from JENsations. (You can see my previous post layering it over a berry jelly polish here.) Still available from her Etsy store for $8. I've got my eye on Turn Off the Lights too. Hurry & place your orders before November 3 when she'll take her last orders before a long hiatus!

Enchanted Polish Finger Lickin' Good

Here we have one coat of Enchanted Polish Finger Lickin' Good layered over one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin' Jade. Finger Lickin' Good is a truly spectacular & unique glitter that is sadly from last year's limited edition fall collection. I'm so glad to have a bottle since it's my favorite Halloween polish!

Zoya Storm


Zoya Storm is from their Winter 2012/13 Ornate Collection. It's a black polish loaded with fine holographic particles. The formula was a bit tricky. I found that I absolutely couldn't go back over wet polish or it would drag. I ended up just kind of dabbing the first coat on. I waited about 10 minutes & then applied the second coat with no problems. Maybe my base coat wasn't dry when I started? Looked great after two coats & it's worth a bit of extra effort.
