Zoya Rooney

Zoya Rooney is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
 
Rooney is a nicely balanced bright medium toned pink creme that will look great with lots of skin-tones. Shown here at two thin coats that applied nicely. Zoya Rooney is a great addition to my pink collection!

Thanks for reading!

Simple Geometric Nail Art With Zoya

This manicure was inspired by the always amazing Pshiiit. I love her photos and nail art especially her nail art inspired by fashion like this fantastic post. I finally got around to do a version of this manicure. It's super simple but I never thought about orienting the triangles this way & I like the results. I used Zoya Alma for my base color & then added a triangle of Zoya Amy & finished with a smaller triangle in Zoya Neely.

World Cup Puma Cleats With Zoya!

Only two more games! This has been a truly astounding tournament for so many reasons. Today I've got some very simple nails inspired by these Puma cleats that many players have worn throughout the tournament including players from both Argentina & Germany for tomorrow's final match. Fun shoes for the world's biggest stage, right is pink, left is blue! I used Zoya Lolly & Zoya Phoebe. Apparently Puma makes the most eye-catching shoes because I did this manicure inspired by Puma last World Cup!
I LOVE my Pumas!
Still love my hair too. About as close as I'll get to a crazy World Cup haircut!

Zoya Alma

Zoya Alma is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.

Zoya describes Alma as "a warm golden peach metallic featuring the exclusive liquid-metal holographic jelly formula" but I'd call it more of a straight up though slightly faded orange. I love the way Zoya does gold & silver micro shimmer & it looks particularly stunning in a jelly formula. As for the holographic sparkles, they are the same lovely pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just in a smaller size. Zoya Alma is shown here at 3 easily applied thin coats. Great color for summer! This is a nice polish but I definitely prefer the more saturated Jesy from the same collection.

World Cup USA Nails with Zoya Pixie Dusts!

Once every 4 years I turn into a rabid super fan, sporting team colors, rooting for underdog teams, & spouting facts that I've seemingly absorbed without effort. Only the FIFA World Cup has this effect on me & for good reason. It's quite simply the biggest event on the planet. Whole countries effectively shut down to watch their team play, cease fires have been called for and granted, and some of the most talented (not to mention gorgeous) athletes in the world are on display.

I've got to root for my home team & perpetual underdogs in their group of death this year. This manicure happens to work great for 4th of July too!

I started with one coat of my new all time favorite polish, Zoya Tomoko. Then I added stripes in Zoya Chyna. The Pixie Dust polishes are so good for nail art! Then i tried to make an outlined star with Zoya Sunshine. I'm terrible at drawing stars without the lines in the middle! I ended up trying the stars again with Zoya Bar. They are still wonky but who cares, I love this look overall & I hope the USA can make it to the round of 16. I actually love the Ghana & German teams too (so glad we finally beat Ghana though!) but only 2 teams can go through. My head just might explode tomorrow during the simultaneous games!

Zoya Ginni

Zoya Ginni is from their Magical Pixie Dust Summer 2014
Zoya Bar is part of Zoya's second set of Magical Pixie Dusts, textured sparkle polishes with holographic cellophane glitter like Monet. While I still love the plain Pixie Dusts more, these magical versions are also pretty special. Ginni applied very easily in two coats, dries quickly and looks fantastic. Super fancy nails fast!
I really loved this book! Check out what I'm reading on Goodreads..

Zoya Rocha

Zoya Rocha is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
 
Zoya calls Rocha a red creme but I say it's a bright orange creme instead. A truly fabulous orange too, very rich & warm. Zoya Rocha is shown here at 2 easily applied coats with a fantastic formula. I'll be using Rocha a lot this summer, especially since it matches some of the shades in my new summer hair!
I love my new undercut for breezy summer ponytails in the Oklahoma heat & humidity.

Simple Nail Art With Zoya

I saved this fun nail art by Sunny of 365 Days of Color long ago & finally did a version of my own. I started with a base of Zoya Jesy & then added a freehand rectangle of Zoya Song & finished with one of Zoya Ling.
