Zoya Gigi

I was feeling dainty/lazy today...

  So I decided to wear the Nude perfection that is Zoya's Gigi. I know a lot of you asked to see Robyn first but I really want to come up with something really special for her. I like to wear them when they are calling me. Do you guys know what I mean? Today Gigi said: " Cristina, I am your destiny".


  Gigi is a lovely nude base with the slightest Pink shimmery flash throughout. Gigi also has a fine Silver micro glitter that I just love. I know a lot of girls hate this look but, personally, I think it's lovely. It's clean and delicate. I hate hate, HATE going without some kind of color on my nails. This is my perfect naked, effortless nail color. For my mani I used Three coats of Gigi. With this one I don't mind a bit of VNL because I wanted a natural look. I could not stop staring at my hands for a good while. This is a simple color but sometimes I find that the simplest shades are the prettiest and easiest to appreciate. I hate french manicures but I may just have to try one with this as my base. Gigi is my new go to nude. Sorry Innocence :(.

What is your favorite nude tone?

  1. I absolutely love Gigi. I love shades like this too. I normally go for more colorful shades, but sometimes I crave colors like this. There is something so elegant about these colors. I like how clean and fresh it makes your nails and hands look. I'd have to say Zoya Gigi, Danielle, & Stephanie are my favorites for this category. I think Zoya does pink sheers/nudes the best.

  5. This is beautiful! Last week my nude look was OPI Heart Throb with Orly Shine on Crazy Diamond on top. I don't normally go for nude looks either, but sometimes just need to mix it up. For yellow nails, I recently used an effervescent retainer cleaner. Worked like a charm!

  6. I used to never like nude, light colors; I like my colors to pop, to be dark & beautiful, & not neon... Well, that quickly changed once I saw "Leotard-optional" from the Urban Ballerina collection from Sephora by OPI. It's soo beautiful.! I'm obsessed with it now ;P

  7. I love that you mention "lazy." It is nice to have colors like these in your arsenal for that reason. They make your nails look "done" and fabulous, but without the headache of meticulous and time-consuming cleanup!

  8. Thank you ladies <3.

    @barilla- Why hide the truth lol? Gigi is just one of those effortless colors and I lucked out that it practically matches my skin tone :).

    @jomayra- I normally do vivid shades too and I only own like 3 soft nudes like this one lol. But they are definitelly a must every girl should have at least one nude shade in their stash.
