Day 17: Zoya Jo

Day 17: Zoya Jo

Sorry for the delay, folks! Between my camera deciding to die immediately after I uploaded my vacation photos, law school applications (good news is, it looks like I will be at some law school in the Fall), work, and whatnot, I have been facing many obstacles leading up to this post. But thankfully, it has arrived and I can continue the 30 Days of Zoya.

To give you all ample time to vote, I'm going to post the rest of the write-ups in the challenge every other day. IE: Mon, Wed, Fri, etc. In the interim, I will post other swatches!

So here was the New Years Manicure you all voted on… Zoya Jo!As you can see, Jo is a stunning periwinkle color. But the biggest surprise is that she's got a big kerpow in the form of silver glitter. Amazingly, Jo turned out a lot darker on the nail than in the bottle itself. But it was a pleasant surprise.

As part of my new-found love of all things flakie (I'm hoping to get my hands on the Mylars soon), I threw on a coat of Essie Shine of the Times to see if it would change things up a little bit.And while it was really hard to capture in the harsh light of my dorm room, it turned out better when I took the flash off. You can really see how it morphs the effect.

So what do you think, ladies? Are you on the flakie train?!?

Day 18 is going to be full of purple-tones: Valerie, Nimue, or Petra?

Until tomorrow!

PS Be sure to vote in the Theme Thursday challenge too!

  1. Valerie for tomorrow. And the flakies are fun and make any color extra gorgeous, but I hope we don't get sick of them like crackle/shatter :(

  2. I'm voting Valerie for tomorrow. Totally on the flakie train! I've been wanting Essie Shine of the Times as well, but I haven't been able to find it yet. >.< I also REALLY want Zoya's flakies as well. Stupid lack of money...

  3. I love Petra. And, I'm probably the only woman on the planet who's not a fan of flakies and glitter.
