(**Press Samples**)color drop decal obsession continues!! Seriously, I just cannot get enough of this method and the endless possibilities it brings (and the part where I can get equally awesome swirls, with ease, on both hands!). The Zoya Bubbly collection polishes were simply a perfect choice for this look! I think they look a bit like stained glass, or maybe sparkly jelly fish. More after the jump.

OMG much changes!! Such update :D. I hope you guys are enjoying the new look of Let them have Polish!
Not even going to lie... I've been completely obsessed with making my own decals lately. I desperately wanted to try this technique with creme polishes, so I did :D. I had this Zoya Tickled trio set aside for a water marble, but decided to try the color drops method instead. I am so loving the effect this technique created with these three creamy shades. How can I not love sweet cotton candy swirls?!
I painted my nails with Zoya Kitridge. This shade is an amazing, vibrant bubblegum pink creme. I am smitten with this flattering color, and its amazing formula. The formula is very self- leveling and perfectly pigmented. I only needed Two coats of Kitridge.
To create my decals I used the method shown in my color drops tutorial. For these decals I did space my drops out a bit more. Spacing out the drops created that petal- like effect. For my swirls I used Zoya Ling, and Zoya Rooney. Ling is a beautiful shade of true cerulean blue creme. She is a very balanced shade of blue. Rooney is a vibrant magenta pink creme. She is a classic that will look great on every skin tone. I just love the amazing pops of blue thanks to unique Ling. She adds such a great contrasting touch.
I finished my nails off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked fast. Of course I added my "traditional" coat of INM Northern Lights because sparkles make everything better. I really enjoy using the color drop method to create marbled nails because it allows me to get more swirls on my nails than a watermarble normally would. I LOOOOVE watermarbles, but I feel like they look so much more kick ass on gals with longer nails. I feel like with the color drops method girls with shorter nails can also enjoy intricate swirl designs on their nails.
I am just LOVING the Zoya Tickled collection shades. The collection feels very cohesive, the colors really do flatter each other. I also love that all six shades look like they could work with all skin tones.. These creamy beauties look great on everyone!
Thanks for coming by today loves!!
