Layering With Zoya Bar and Frida

I'm a huge fan of the discontinued Pixie Dust polishes and would have been happy to have them in even more colors then they made so I tried layering to get a "new" Pixie Dust polish. This attempt didn't quite work but the idea is solid. I started with a base of Zoya Bar and then tried to brush a thin layer of Zoya Frida on top but it was a bit too streaky. I think this would have worked great if I had sponged on Frida instead. Still looked pretty from a distance though!

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Isa & Serenity

This manicure was so easy but the results are gorgeous. I started with a base of Zoya Serenity and the next day I added a swipe of Zoya Isa to one side of may nail and then wiped the brush mostly dry so I could drag out Isa with a dry brush. Super simple and no extra brushes needed.

Zoya Nail Art

About a month ago I posted a dotticure using Zoya Mae and Cecilia but I forgot to show you the pictures of both hands; I did different nail art on my right and left hands - a rarity. On my right hand a I did a gradient using Zoya Cecilia and Nana. Not something I'll do often but having different things on my hands didn't feel quite as crazy as I thought it would.

Fast, bold nail art that takes very little time. I started with a base of Zoya Nana and then added a stripe of Zoya Storm. Great color combo and a great way to show off a precious polish.

Zoya Genesis And Song

I wasn't too excited about this idea but I had already tried several other nail art ideas and nothing was quite working out. I ended up really loving this simple nail art and striking color combo though! I started with a base of Zoya Genesis and then added a bit of Zoya Song

DIY Nail Decals With Zoya

I've tried making nail decals like these several times without success but I finally got it to work! I used a plastic sandwich bag instead of tape but otherwise the steps were the same.

I started with a base of Zoya Oceane and used Zoya Nana, Hunter, and Darcy for the nail decals. All of these polishes are very pigmented which seemed to work well for making decals. I was inspired by the pineapple pattern on my shirt to try an abstract 80's retro version. I think they turned out fairly well and I'll be playing with this technique again in the future.

Zoya Isa

Zoya Isa is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun. It's smellier than most Zoya polishes, almost skunky, but not too bad. Application is ok and only required 2 coats, but you do have to be careful not to go over an area multiple times or you'll have dragging issues. All that being said, Isa is a very pretty and well balanced purple polish - not too red or too blue - and I got lots of compliments on it. Overall it's just not my style but my boyfriend loves colors like this for his toes so he has claimed this one!
