Holiday Nails Shimmer & Shine

Hello Everyone :)

I know its been awhile. Unfortunately the #darkto power outage (the “state of emergency” that wasn’t…) got to me once we finally got power, and I needed a bit of time to recuperate. I’m hoping that those who are still held captive by this outage are saved soon.

Anyway, I wanted to get the rest of the Holiday Nail posts out, so here is one today. I only have two more.

I love glitter. Really. I don’t think you are surprised if you are a long time reader. The thing is, I like glitter even more when it has holo in it.

So OBVIOUSLY, despite the fact that I wanted to wear just Zoya Nova, I couldn’t stop at just that…right??

I used
China Glaze Nova
Zoya Nova

I was completely amused that both China Glaze and Zoya were named Nova for this mani :D

I didn’t even realize until I was finishing up this post lol. In any case, Zoya Nova is dark pink glitter in a dark pink jelly like base. The thing is, that with Zoya Nova, it really looks better when there aren’t any glitter bare spots. But it would require about 3 or 4 coats of Nova. So I figured that I would sandwich China Glaze Nova in between the two layers of Zoya Nova.

I found that this added the extra shine that I was looking for, while at the same time filling in some of the bare spots…but not all. I took this picture with my point and shoot camera, so it doesn’t really capture how it should look. It emphasizes the bare spots a bit much. IRL it wasn’t as noticeable, and was loud yet pretty. I liked it. So much that I applied this for during my second set of exams…just so I could stare at my nails if I thought I was bombing the exam. LOL…luckily I didn’t :P
