Zoya Tomoko

Tomoko is part of the Zoya Pixie Dust collection. It is a glittery gold and very eye-catching, slightly resembling Godiva. Tomoko is textured, and feels slightly like sand. The texture allows the glitter to have an enormous amount of sparkle, making it catch the light in a dark spot. I used 3 thin coats. Zoya says to use no basecoat or topcoat so all the sparkle can be seen.

Roses

I saw this design on someone at the mall, and decided to try it. It took a longer time than usual because of the different layers of paint, but it was relatively simple. This mani makes for a cute, easy, floral print. My base color is Sally Hansen Blue Me Away!.

Revlon- Twilight

This is a shimmery pink: lavender in shadow, and Barbie pink in direct sunlight. This polish has proven to have a consistent pink in certain lighting. Even though I have had this bottle for a while, the nail polish has not become goopy. The formula is very thin and sheer, I had to use three coats for it to become fully opaque. A short while ago, I tried to find this color on the internet but I could not find it anywhere. It is a limited edition, so Revlon is probably not selling it anymore.

As you can see, the printing on the bottle has faded.

This is a very blurry picture, but my camera would not focus on something so small. I can only guess that the name is “Twilight.”

Zigzag Accent

Here is how I made the navy blue zigzag accent from the post NYC- Broadway Burgundy Frost . First, I started with two coats of Broadway Burgundy Frost.

Next, I cut a triangular piece of scotch tape and stuck it on my nail. You can prevent the tape from peeling off the base coats by sticking the tape on your finger a few times to reduce the stickiness.

Then, I put on three more triangles of tape in line with the other piece.

Finally, I painted my nail removed the tape while the nail polish was still wet. I then cleaned up the sides and added a topcoat. Ta-da!

NYC- Broadway Burgundy Frost

I thought the name of this polish was a mouthful, and because I did not have a clear idea of the color burgundy, I searched it. Burgundy is a dark red color, usually associated with wine. This color is a bright red, there is nothing really dark about the shade. I think the name is slightly overdone. Two coats are definitely needed for this polish, as the first coat appears as a red-pink color. There is glitter in this nail polish, but it is only apparent in sunlight. It cannot be seen in these photos. The zigzag accent is Ibiza by Zoya.
