Zoya Fleck Effects Maisie & Ibiza

May 25, 2012

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…

    Hi Kristina,

    I really like it!! Maybe you could do a pedi with it if it doesn’t grow on you!

    Just a quick question! Do you only use the CND Stickey Base only when using the Nail Magic?

    Thank you

      Generally, I use them together. But you can use them separately, too. I didn’t use either in this case since Zoya polishes tend to bubble on top of anything that’s not their basecoat. I used the Zoya Anchor basecoat for this manicure.

    I love it too, so fun for summer time.

    I love my nails too but get them done professionally. Leave them or pedi it too. It’s funky and very fun. It looks great with and without the Maisie.

    Love the flakey! Super cute!

    I love this look, flash yes but who cares its on your hands not your forehead.

    Have you tried any of the magnetic polishes that Nails Inc do?

    Hi Kristina! First I love your blogs! I follow this one and your crafting one! I have a question, does your Zoya polish shrink at all? I use the Orly rubberized border with it and seche vite top coat with the Zoya polish. It’s my first Zoya polish so I’m not sure which polish is making it shrink. Also which basecoat do you prefer? Orly bonder or CND stickey?
    Thanks!

      Yes, Zoya doesn’t play well with Seche Vite. The only way I can use Zoya without shrinkage is to use their base and top coats. :)

      I use Orly Bonder and CND Stickey pretty interchangeably. Mostly just whatever is out and most convenient at the time. However, CND polishes do NOT travel well. So when I pack a basecoat for travel, I always take Orly Bonder.
