Gradient Dot Stripes

Happy Thursday, everyone! I'm sorry I haven't been around a lot the past few weeks. Law school is kicking my butt lately!

But today, I have a unique twist on polka dots and racing stripes. Polka stripe? Perhaps. Though that sounds like a really old record.

For this manicure, I used Zoya Louise from the Cashmere collection and Zoya Giovanna from the Satin collection for the dots. I have a thing lately for jewel tones and neutrals because they seem to compliment each other really well.

This was fairly easy to do, as well. I started at the base of my nail with a large dot and just kept moving in a straight line. As the polish starts to wear on the dotting tool, the dots get smaller. So I just kept with that trend.

What do you thing? Would you rock this mani?

Gold Fleck Racing Stripe

Hi, everyone! Today I'm bringing you some simple and easy nail art!

What I love about this design is that it doesn't require any form of precision. All you need is a base color and a flaky top coat. Remember all of those 24k gold flake top coats that were out there? How about the translucent flakies?

Well, here's your chance to break them out again!

For this manicure, I used Zoya Pepper (from the Cashmere Collection) with Zoya Maria Luisa (from the Satin Collection).

I had been wearing Pepper for a few days by this point and wanted to freshen up my look. So I painted a single stripe of Maria Luise right down the middle. The great thing about flakies is that there is no need to be perfect. They cover up the mistakes because of their sparseness.

So for all of you ladies looking to spruce up your manis this coming weekend, break out your flakies and get ready to race!

Zoya Jewel Tone Circus Dots

Hello again, everyone! Today I'm bringing you some nail art using the Zoya Fall 2013 Collection!

When they first came in the mail, the two that stood out immediately to me were Mason, a metallic magenta, and Giovanna, a metallic teal.

As I was swatching Flynn, a caramel creme shade, I thought about how nice of a contrast there was between the brown and the jewel tones.

Here is the end result and it is one of my favorite color combinations to date!

The contrast between the jewel tones and the neutral is definitely highlighted in the sun. I loved rocking this combo!

More sparkle!

What do you think of this color and design combo? I'm in such a polka dot mood lately!
