Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you a glitter leopard accent nail art tutorial.

To get this look I painted my pinkie, fore finger and thumb in Zoya Normani and for the other fingers I used Essie Mamba. On top of Essie Mamba I added Zoya Bar as a glitter accent. Then I added leopard details to two fingers and finished off the whole look with my Essie Good to Go top coat.

I have already shared some thoughts on all nail polishes for this nail look. You can find more info by clicking on the product name above.

Hello lovelies!

Today I have for you a glitter nail look which is very easy to achieve. This is Zoya Bar layered on the tips of nude nails. I covered painted my little finger and thumb with 3 full coats of Zoya Bar to make this nail design more complete. I think this glittery nail art idea would be great for a bride and would suit a champagne/golden theme reception.

Hello lovelies!

It has been a while since I last shared a manicure with you. My previous months have been really hectic and while juggling various responsibilities this winter it almost came to an end. It is March now and we are just a step away from spring :)

I think it is a good time for a winter nail art roundup and this post features my favorite manicures since December.

China Glaze Wish On A Starfish: review and swatches

Which are your favorite winter nail designs?

Hello lovelies!

Today I want to share with you a beautiful and girly textured formula. China Glaze Wish On A Starfish is a pink textured formula with fine gold shimmer. You can see gold hue are very prominent on photos taken in the sun (first two) and not so loud on photos taken out of direct sunlight (last two). Formula is rather thin but very easy to build as it dies not dry too bumpy and is not difficult to layer. For all photos in this post I have 2 coats on.

Being a textured formula, Wish On A Starfish is not meant to be worn with a top coat on. This makes it fade in two days. To wear it longer I would suggest you either layer 3 coats or add a third layer after 1 day of wear. To take Wish On A Starfish off simply hold a pad soaked in nail polish remove on your nail for 15 to 20 seconds, it is not too stubborn to remove.

Hello nail art lovers!

Today I want to share with you my Valentine’s day nail art idea. It is non-pink, easy to make and involves some stamping :) So if you would like to opt for a nail design out of the traditiona pink/red/romantic vibe, I suggest the one below.

The textured gold color is OPI Honey Ryder which I love and have shown you in several designs so far. On the white finger I have Bundle Monster stamping image from their Holiday collection image plates. This heart is the uppermost image on the BM-H16 image plate. I have Zoya Bar in the black nail base to add a glitter gold accent. I think these few glitters are the ingredient which binds the whole design together.

Formula and application
Zoya Maya is a mix between jelly and creme formulas. It is medium thick, sheer in one coat and color is buildable. It is easy to use as formula is not runny compared to other crelly nail polishes. I have two coats on in the photos and a top coat. Zoya Maya dries with a great shine and it is not necessary to add a top coat for the sole purpose of adding brilliance.

Wear
When in two coats, Zoya Maya wears for two days with no chips. In three coats it wears for steady four days but then it looks more a creme than a crelly.

My verdict
I love the jelly finish of this coral. I find this way it works better on larger number of skin tones, including my yellowish undertone. This definitely is my go to coral.

Which is your favorite coral shade? Do you like wearing crelly formulas?
