Zoya Tiana Swatch and Review

Tiana is from the new Spring collection by Zoya, Delight.  I restrained myself this time and didn't order the entire collection, though I may end up with the remaining 3 when all is said and done. Tiana is a gorgeous minty green cream shade perfect for a subtle nod to St. Patrick's Day without going all out or adding any art.  Simple, crisp and screams of spring!  Two simple coats, topped with HK Girl as usual.

St. Paddy's Day Dotticure

Kind of in love with how this one turned out.  This wasn't exactly what I had in my head when jotting down ideas but once I started this is what happened and I am pleased with the result. Base is Zoya Snow White with dots in Starbord from China Glaze and Zoya Jancyn.  These dotting tools are a great way to get starting with dotticures!

St. Patrick's Day French Manicure

Keeping with the St. Patrick's Day theme I wanted to do something quick and simple that anyone could do.  First up is a simple swatch of Zoya Shawn, a gorgeous olive green cream shade. This color does have a bit of a yellow undertone and was really hard to get the color right, second is more color accurate.

Next I used some tape to make a straight line across the top of each nail and painted the tips gold using Ziv also by Zoya, followed by Glisten and Glow H K Girl topcoat (seriously the BEST).

Zoya Veruschka for St. Patrick's Day

Ok folks, I have finally made some changes in my life that will (hopefully) let me get back to blogging.  I have a bunch of "untrieds" that need swatching but also a lot of ideas for nail art especially related to St. Patrick's Day, so that's what I'm going with first.  Some may (likely will) include polish that I haven't tried before and while they may not be "new" they have been sitting on my desk for some time just waiting..
First up is Zoya Veruschka used in this mani along with Snow White and Shawn, Bundle Monster holiday plate BM-H05 used for this look then I added NYC matte topcoat to the accent nail to give it a matte finish as well.  I must say, Veruschka went on very well, two easy coats, and dried fairly quickly and of course the color is gorgeous.
