Making your manicure last longer

Making your manicure last longer -- Recently was reminded by various sources online that one of the best ways to extend a manicure is to reapply a top coat each day. Not only does it make the polish last longer, but it adds extra strength (and I can use all the help I can get to prevent nails breaking). This manicure is two days old, including putting it through it's paces by prepping for a birthday party at my house (setting up tables and chairs and lots of dish washing). Just applied a new coat of HK Girl top coat and it looks like I just painted my nails. :) Polish is Zoya Margo. #zoya #dark #red #starofmaynails

Pretty Princess Pink Nails

The pink shimmer of this manicure makes me smile. :) I’m usually not one for super girly pink, but I loved what the CND Raspberry Sparkle did to the plain pink cream Zoya Lara. It makes me think it would be perfect for a princess–I think of Sleeping Beauty’s Aurora in this case. :)

Base Color: Zoya Lara (2 coats)
Shimmer Layer: CND Raspberry Sparkle (1 coat)
Top Coat: Butter London Hardwear PD Quick Top Coat

In other news, I had no shrinkage or bubbles when using the Butter London base and top coats with this Zoya color. I’m not sure if it was because I added the CND polish into the mix, or if I really have found my holy grail base and top coats for use with Zoya polishes. Further research is needed. :)

Navy Sparkles!

Like most nail fanatics who were too late on the scene to grab the elusive Essie Starry Starry Night, I’m always on the lookout for similar looks. There’s just something about dark blue with sparkles. Mine doesn’t look like Starry Starry Night, but it gets the job done and steers me away from Evil-bay where SSN goes for upward of $300. Ouch. :)

Base Color: Zoya Ibiza (see it on it’s own HERE)
Glitter: Northern Lights (silver)

Zoya Fleck Effects Maisie & Ibiza

Morning, all!

On my nails today I have two coats of a dark navy color from Zoya called Ibiza (it works well for stamping, too). Then I put a coat of Zoya Maisie over the top. It looks cool, but I don’t think I’ll leave this on too long. It’s a bit… flashy? LOL! Like glitter isn’t, right? Hmm… maybe I need to just let it grow on me. :)

Ibiza is really pretty on it’s own, too. I took this picture before adding Maisie on top…
