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!

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!

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!

Zoya Wendy & Harper

I always say you can't go wrong with a gradient, especially a glitter one! Here we have Zoya Wendy topped with just a bit of Zoya Harper. Two great Zoyas that look great together!
Thanks for reading!

Zoya Spencer

Zoya Spencer is from their Naturel 2 collection. Spencer is a nice camel colored polish that applies well in 2 coats. It's a good polish but I don't love it with my skin tone so I'll be passing it along to a friend.
Prairie Artisan Ales are a local brewery here in Tulsa that make truly spectacular beers with great art too! This Cherry Funk label cracks me up for some reason. Below is one of my beloved Paririe Dinosaur glasses. So cute!
 
An old school Threadless t-shirt that I just had to have. I still love it so much!

Zoya Arlo

Zoya Arlo is part of Zoya's second set of Magical Pixie Dusts, textured sparkle polishes with holographic cellophane glitter! While I still love the plain Pixie Dusts more, these magical versions are also pretty special. The Pixie Dusts wear like iron and even if you do somehow manage to chip it, you can very easily just dab a bi of polish on & fix it right up, not something I can do with a creme polish!

Arlo is a faded, dusty plum color that I found very flattering. It's got a great formula, shown here using 3 thin coats. Very versatile color in a finish I love! I took a lot of pictures.

Zoya Autumn

Zoya Autumn is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Autumn is the copper polish of my dreams! No other company does micro shimmer as well as Zoya and this copper polish loaded with gold flecks is a real show stopper. The first coat is patchy but every thing looks magically looked perfect on the second coat. Truly gorgeous!

Nail Art Inspired By Chalkboard Nails

I keep a Pinterest board full of nail art I'd love to try someday and I finally got around to trying one of my favorite ideas. Chalkboard Nails is one of my favorite blogs & her adorable Carmen Miranda Ruffle Manicure looked fancy but totally doable. Thanks for the great idea!
I used all 6 colors from Zoya's Tickled Summer 2014 collection for my version and I love how it turned out! Easy enough to do well on both hands too. I started with Zoya Kitridge then added dots in Ling, Rocha, Rooney, Tilda, & Wendy!

Zoya Wendy

Zoya Wendy is my favorite from the Tickled Summer 2014 collection! It's a bright pink with strong coral leanings that I absolutely love! Great formula that covers in just 2 coats and made me happy every time I looked at it. My boyfriend Will also loves it & immediately used it for his toes. It looked darn good on him too! I took a ton of pictures of this beauty including a few of my adorable dog Wally & a shot with my beloved Rockport loafers. Wendy is an EXACT match for the chain detail on them!

Beach Nail Art With Zoya

August in Oklahoma has me wishing I could head to a beautiful sandy beach for a few days. I'll settle for some beach inspired ail art for now though. I started with Zoya Muse for the blue waters and then added some sandy beach at the tips in Zoya Tomoko. Then I finished it off by sponging on just a bit of foam with Zoya Farah.

Zoya Madeline

Zoya Madeline, from their 2014 Naturel 2 Collection, is described as a muted rose creme. I can't think of a more appropriate polish for work or even an important job interview. Madeline will look great with any outfit and most any skin tone. If you've been looking for a perfect neutral polish for those occasions when you need understated nails, Zoya Madeline is an excellent choice. Shown here at 2 easily applied coats with no formula issues.
 
I love graphic novels! Keep up with my reading on Goodreads!
