Muffin Mondays!! Zoya Apple

Happy Muffin Monday!

  For this Muffin Monday I did something a little different. Instead of using her choice as my base I used it as an accent for this Blingy lizard skin mani.
  How cool looking is this!? As my base I used the lovely Zoya Gemma then I sponged the tips with Apple and using a design from plate BM224 in Zoya Shawn. I could not stop staring at my hands all night. I'm all about sponging lately. I love how this simple and quick technique can add so much dimension to any mani.

Just for fun here is a swatch of Zoya Gemma. Two coats, no top coat. One of my top 20 colors. Well, if I had a top 20. Hhhmm, I should work on that. Anywho, Gemma....
Muffin really liked Apple. I wish I had video if her picking this. After I took the pic she started rubbing her face on the bottle and rolling on the floor with it and then, as if all that wasn't adorable enough... Truffle joined in... It was so freaking cute!!

Muffin sends her love!
