Zoya Week! Wednesday Two-Fer with Daul and FeiFei

Happy Humpday! 

  Zoya week carries on with Two looks today! I'm keeping it very short and sweet today as I do not feel very well. I spend the day in the hospital yesterday and today I'm going through the aftermath. Which, in a sense, is just as bad if not worse than the time spent in the hospital. But! I did manage to do these pretty gem looks with FeiFei and Daul.
  To see these Two gemmed looks just continue reading.

Zoya Week!! featuring Zoya Suri

Good morning lovely readers!

  Zoya week continues today with this stamped look featuring Suri from Zoya's Diva Fall 2012 Collection. Since Suri is such an amazing shade of regal Purple I couldn't bring myself to do something too elaborate. I kept the look simple with pretty stamped flowers. 
  For this simple look I started with a base of Two coats of the beautiful Zoya Suri. For the pretty flower stamps I used Red Angel stamping plate RA119 with China Glaze Passion. The only reason for my purchasing China Glaze Passion was for stamped nail art. Passion is a perfect Gold stamping polish.
 I love this look to bits. Yes, it is very simple but Suri is such a stunning and eye-catching color that I could not bring myself to cover it up with too intricate of stamp design. Purple and Gold= ♥

I hope you guys like this Suri look!

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!
