Happy 2013! It's my first post of the New Year and I thought I'd start off with my favorite color family - blue greens. I coveted Zoya Wednesday for so long you would think something was wrong with me. I kept looking but never buying and then when they did the Zoya Box promotions I took my chance to snatch it up. Then of course its warmed my tray of wonders until today. I also have the privilege of being friends with one of the kindest and most sincere women I know Vicky of Boombastic Nails who sent me Zoya Ziv as part of a Christmas package. Thanks you hunny bunny! So together Ziv and Wednesday decided to create some magic ;)
Base coat/Top Coat: CND Stickey and Poshe Fast Drying Topcoat
Base color: Zoya Wednesday
Gradient: Zoya Ziv
Stamping polish: Konad Special Polish in White & Black
Stamping Plate: Nailz Craze NC03
Seriously this manicure was effortless - well almost. I will admit I found the formula on
Wednesday to be borderline for me. A bit too thick for my liking and yet not quite so thick that I couldn't manage. Ziv was flawless flawless flawless. Literally the perfect gold shimmer polish. The Nailz Craze plate I used is the newest "Russian" plate it has little dolls and sweaters etc and is very cute. I will say though the bottom portion of the sweater patten did not pick up as well as I would have liked even using a Konad Special polish so that was a little disappointing, but otherwise I love everything about this image and the plate as well. One thing I will say about Nailz Craze is she always always has images that are the perfect oversize size. Long nails or short she will have you covered!
So thoughts? Not bad for the start of the New Year eh? I'm looking forward to trying out my other Zoya polishes and I also happened to have seen swatches of the new spring line and bottle shots of their new Pixie Dust textured matte polishes. They look brilliant! Anyhoo thanks for reading and see you next post! Toodles...
