What’s on your nails? Ombre Black and Red 

In the wintertime, I often start to get a little stir crazy.  That’s when I start to do more craft projects, coloring/drawing, and get into doing more nail art.  Hey, why not?  It’s not like I’m going to go run around in the single digit temps outside!  Here’s my latest mani – a red to black ombre done with Zoya Janele (red), Revlon Vixen (dark blood red), and Zoya Willa (black).  I used a damp sponge wedge to do the sponge paint method and topped it off with a coat of Poshè for a great 3-free home mani that looks pretty cool!

What’s on your nails? Zoya Blaze 

Zoya makes a small amount of holo polishes, but the ones they do are gorgeous!  I recently got 3 of them in the 4 free promo and none disappoint.  Blaze is a scattered holo in a berry-red base.  It’s vibrant and amazing.  I had to take a photo in sunlight and still couldn’t capture the fire this has!

One day, I’m going to paint my nails as neatly as those nail bloggers do.  I swear it!  That would probably require me going back to using acetone, and for now, I am avoiding it.  I use <a href=”http://www.amazon.com/Organic-Lavender-Nail-Polish-Remover/dp/B00G7S424O”>Karma Naturals non toxic nail polish remover</a> and then I just paint my nails and do not use acetone for clean up afterward, because I hate the smell (migraines).  I’m also trying to stick to more “natural” nail formulas, well, as much as that’s possible (let’s get real, no nail polish or removers are totally healthy, but some are less evil than others).  I may get back to a little nail stamping in the future and for that, you have to suck it up and use a little acetone.

Zoya 4YOU PROMOTION – 4 Free Bottles of Polish for $15 Shipping

I have done Zoya’s “free” nail polish with promotional shipping fee for the last 3 years.  Those years had 3 bottles for $12 shipping, which was a great deal; however, the shipping always took sooooooooo long!  This year, Zoya upped the ante with 4 free bottles of nail polish for $15 shipping, which brings your total to $3.75 a bottle.  That’s really great for a 5-free nail polish!

Imagine my surprise when my order arrived before the promo even ended?! 

 
ZOMG.  *tears open*

  *happy tears*  Oh my STARS, it’s a thing of beauty!  Colors are Sansa (hello, Game of Thrones fans!), Giada, Janel, and Willa.

So, then I was tipped off by a friend that this code works multiple times and ordered 4 more shades…meep!!!

This promo ends tomorrow, so if you want in on it, get cracking!

Zoya FREE 4 YOU

Girls and boys, it’s that time.  Zoya is doing their yearly free nail polish thingy.  This year instead of 3 bottles for $12 shipping, it’s 4 bottles for $15 shipping.  That turns out to be around $3.75 per bottle, which is damned good for 5-free, healthy polish (normally $9/bottle).  I do realize I sound like an ad, but whatever.  People paint!

What’s on your nails? Zoya Jem 

Wow, sloppy paint job, but I’m not redoing a whole manicure over a couple flooded cuticles, LOL!  Isn’t this an amazing deep wine shade?  It has a gold metallic Pearl running through it. 

  
HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Thanks for being along for the ride – we are a brand new blog and growing slowly and we really appreciate your support!  

What’s on your nails?  Zoya Posh Matte Velvet Laquer

Quick nail post!  I love this Zoya matte polish in “Posh,” because it’s not totally flat – it has this interesting velvety finish.  I did a terrible job around my cuticles because I was painting my nails in the dark by this sad little lamp while my husband was asleep, LOL!

What’s on your nails? Zoya Midori

Oh my GAWD, I love this color, you guys.  It’s an apple green with yellow tones and lots of gold shimmer.  It’s perfect for this late spring/early summer weather we’re having.  I’ve got it on my toes and I’m going to rock my birthday sandals with it this week, too!
