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!

Theme Thursdays

This is my newest series of posts that I'm going to do on the site and like the title says, it's going to come up every Thursday. Each Thursday, I'm going to post a theme for a nail art challenge for myself. Through the end of the week, you can comment your suggestions and I will take the most-suggested item and turn it into nail art. If there isn't a top choice, I will pick my favorite.

For example, if I said the theme of the week is Rock Bands, you could comment with Green Day, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, etc. On the following Thursday, I will post the end result. At the end of the post would be next week's theme.

This week's theme is going to be Billboard Hot 100 artists. You can find the full list here. Pick your favorite and comment away!
