Zoya Rocha and Bar Gradient


Summer is in full force and for me Rocha from the Zoya Tickled Collection is that perfect summer color. I really wanted to do something fun with Rocha so I grabbed Bar from the Magical Pixie Dust collection and sponged it just on my tips.  I topped everything off with two coats of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

Easy nail art

I'm really loving how this turned out, I'm thinking I will have to do this on my toes!

Zoya Naturel Deux (2) - Summer/Fall 2014

I was so excited when I saw the new colors Zoya is releasing late July! They are beautiful nude's, and I don't know about you but a good neutral color has become my go-to polish. All of these colors look beautiful!! I think Marnie sounds devine, a deep warm plum! Yes please!

 Inspired by the desire to expand the popular neutral palette of the Zoya NATUREL collection, six (6) NEW, full-coverage creams in deeper hues were born.

Perfect as every day go-to colors, the Zoya NATUREL DEUX (2) collection bridges the transitional gap between late summer/early fall 2014 with three, rich brown family shades and three plum based beauties. All in the long-wearing, BIG5FREE formula Zoya is known for!

ModCloth Nail Klub Challenge

I got an email from Amy from ModCloth.com inviting me to participate in their Nail Club challenge. Of course I said yes and this one is right up my alley with Mani Muse Monday. They asked for a look inspired by a dress on their website. For some inspiration I headed over to their Nail Klub blog and checked out some of their party dress inspired looks. I found my inspiration in this beautiful dress. I loved the sheer black with the stripes, the sweetheart neckline and the overall dressy but fun look.

To create my nail look I made my own light black/grey color wash that I used for my base. I took some clear top coat and mixed tiny bits of black polish with it until I got the desired look. I only did one coat on my nails, the more you go over it the darker and streaker it gets. I let the base dry then used the Nail Vinyls straights to make the stripes. I topped it off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat.

I really am in love with this look. The color wash looks really cool and creates that same transparent look as the dress. What do you all think?

Happy Summer! I hope you all are having a great July, I know we are trying too! The weather in Montana is finally warming up, it seems like it has been a late summer start for us.

4th of July Nails

Hi all, I am so sorry I have been absent for a few weeks. We've had some unexpected things come up and I've been at a loss for inspiration and time! I did sit down today though and came up with a really fun and quick 4th of July manicure idea. I think I will be wearing this exact look for the 4th!

I used a China Glaze white polish, Zoya Trixie (silver), Shimmer Polish Maria (blue) and Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos (red). For the Firework inspired accent ring and thumb nails, I used Trixie, Maria and Warrior Ethos. I used a small nail art brush and did little brush strokes starting in the corner and layered the  colors until I was happy with how it looked. I added a a clear square rhinestone in the center.
