Zoya Week Kicks Off with Zoya Song Nautical Nail Art

Good morning and happy Zoya Week! 

  I was having issues on deciding which look I was going to kick this Zoya week off with so I held a little poll on Facebook to find out which look you guys wanted to see first. You guys voted for the Song look. I knew pretty much immediately that I wanted to do something nautical themed with this color so I put on my brave face and grabbed my striping tape and micro beads and gave it my best shot. 
  I started with my Two coats of Zoya Song. Once my base color was dry I carefully placed bits of striping tape from Born Pretty Store horizontally across the nail and painted over them with my White polish. For that step I used Zoya Purity which has amazing coverage.
  On my ring finger I did a little anchor accent in Silver micro-beads carefully placed one by one. For this look I set my beads into a slow drying top coat. I'm so proud of myself for actually pulling this manicure off. I've seen so many beautiful nautical themed manis on Pinterest and from fellow bloggers and have always wanted to try one but never had the courage to do so until now. I was very happy with my results.
I am so excited for the looks to come for the rest of the week! I was really having so much fun with these colors and I can't wait to show you guys what I came up with!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for my next look in this installment!

  17. Love that blue against the white! It looks like a contrast between three-dimensional and flat 2D... it reminds me of an optical illusion. Beautiful!
