Candeo Colors- Zef

Hi everyone! I'm super in love with the mani I have to show you today! The star of the show is Candeo Colors- Zef. I ordered this in the first stock that it was available a few months back. I remember that this formula was slightly different then the original Zef so it was discounted. By discounted I mean like half off so of course I was going to pick it up! From what I can remember, it was missing some type of glitter. The bottle doesn't even have the Candeo Colors label. Comparing it to the website pictures I can't really tell a difference! I just know it's gorgeous and I'm glad I picked it up. You can find Candeo Colors in their personal shop. Keep in mind that I don't think you will be able to get the "messed up" version of Zef but you can get the normal one!

I knew I had to have some undies to wear Zef over and I had the perfect polish in mind, Orly- Au Champagne! I put off buying Au Champagne for the longest time even though everyone told me I needed it. Man were they right! It's a stunning, frosty white polish packed with a silvery white shimmer. It applies great for a frost. Barely streaky and pretty opaque. I think the shimmer really helps it to not appear to streaky. It just glows when you add a top coat. Now on to Candeo Colors- Zef! It's a matte glitter bomb and a perfect color combo. Black, blue and pink matte glitters in different shapes and sizes. On to the not so great part, application kinda sucked. The glitter wanted to clump together and it definitely took some patience to get it evenly on the nail. I would say I used about one and a half coats because I had to fish out some of the bigger blue hexes and pink squares. I think the finished look is so, so pretty though!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I used a PVA/ glue base coat for this mani! I will let you all know how it goes. Not sure if I will do a post on it or not just because it seems like every single blogger has done one and the information kinda repeats itself! Let me know what you guys think!


  1. Messed up or not this is so pretty and fun

  2. Love this combination! I still have yet to try the PVA glue base coat, but I do appreciate everyone's blog post on their experience!

  3. I haven't tried the PVA glue base coat! If it turns out well for you I'd like to give it a try! I love this mani! Turned out really cute! <3
