Zoya Holiday 2015 MatteVelvet Collection Swatches & Review



Hello readers,
Today I have the six new MatteVelvet shades from Zoya to share with you.  You know I love flecked shimmers so these are right up my alley.  Though Zoya recommends wearing these with no base coat, I used a coat of Duri Rejuvocate because with the weather getting colder and dryer, my nails can use all the strengthening help they can get.

Hello readers,
Today I have one of the more recent Picture Polish collaboration shades to share with you.  I'm addicted to their flecked holo finish and this one is a blue leaning teal, so there was no question of my not owning it.

OPI Starlight Floral Stamped Nail Art



Hello readers,
Today I have some stamped nail art I did recently with two shades from the OPI Starlight collection.  I started out with a base of I'm In The Moon To Love and then stamped on a floral design using Press * For Silver and Moyou London Pro collection plate XL 06.  Despite having 'silver' in the name, Press * For Silver looks more like a rose gold.  Whatever you want to call it, it made a great stamping polish.  Finally, I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

Seahorse Nail Stamping



Hello readers,
Today I have my Halloween nails to share with you.  I dressed up as a seahorse so aquatic nails were the perfect match.  To create this look I started out with a base of Zoya Yves.  Then I stamped on water a seahorse head and water droplet silhouettes with Color Club What A Drag and Messy Mansion plate MM29.  Finally I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.
