Zoya Holly

I put one coat of Zoya Holly over another manicure.  That is why it looks so funky in places, it isn't the polish's fault.  Holly is a gorgeous metalic green that is perfect for Christmas or St. Patrick's Day.

Christmas Sweater Nails

The base of this is Zoya Ginessa.  I used Zoya Holly, Zoya Jade, and the Nailz Craze 03 stamping plate.  I painted the colors in stripes and then scraped the polish off in the same direction.

Zoya Ginessa

This is Zoya Ginessa. It is my fault (not Ginessa's fault) the polish on my middle finger is messed up.  Ginessa is a white glass fleck foil finish.  It is great for snow in manicure art.  Unlike other Zoya foil finishes, this one is a little grainy and you have to be careful when applying it to make sure it goes on even.  I'll have to try again sometime to get a picture in daylight.  It was sub zero temps so I took this pic inside.

Gold and Matte Green Ruffian

The gold polish is Rimmel Gold Silk and the matte green is Revlon Emerald City.  I really liked the contrast between the matte green and the shiny gold.  I need to stop trying to do ruffian manicures, because I'm just not good at them.  I need to just do half moon manicures with circular page protectors instead.

Snowmen nails

The base color for this manicure is Wet 'n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh Mint.  I used Zoya Ginessa for the snow.  I like the hand where I did "waves of snow" better then the one where I was hoping for something similar to icicles or snow sliding off a roof.  I also used Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, Wet 'n Wild I Red a Good Book, Essie Brazilliant, and dotting tools.

Gray Sweater Nails

The base is Zoya Harley and I stamped with Zoya Noot and the Nailz Craze 03 stamping plate.  I think stamping with a black polish would have given more contrast and looked better.

Zoya Payton

This picture does not do Zoya Payton justice.  It is a plumb jelly polish with holographic glitter.  When the sunlight hits it, it has a magical glow.   The jelly base looks squishy and it is lit from within with glowing holographic sparkles that shimmer in rainbow colors.  Unfortunately, without direct sunlight, this Superman polish becomes Clark Kent again.  This is a problem for me since I have to wear gloves from October to April and there is often cloud cover.  If you get sun during the winter, you need this pretty polish.
