A Simple Zoya Combo

Happy Friday!

Oh man, have I been lazy. I'm not gonna lie, it's been hard for me to get back into the swing of things since I got back from vacation. I seriously haven't had anything on my nails but OPI Nail Envy for probably the past week and a half. On the bright side, I'm really liking Nail Envy! My nails have been growing SUPER fast! Can't tell yet if it's strengthening them, as my nails like to break left and right. So far so good!

I have a Zoya combo to show you guys today. A little while back, Zoya did a BOGO, or something like that. I picked up two of the Pixie Dusts, and a few other polishes from the newer collections. I decided I wanted to do a simple design with Vespa, which is part of the Pixie Dust collection, and Neely, part of the Lovely collection. I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about the Pixie Dust polishes. I like my polish smooth and glossy. I'll tell you my decision on them at the end! I did three coats of Vespa, and added two coats of Neely on my ring finger. Then I did what I'm calling "gradient dots" with Vespa on top of Neely. Pretty simple, but I'm enjoying it!

Three coats of Zoya- Vespa
Two coats of Zoya- Neely

Here's the mani with one coat of Gelous and one coat of Poshe. I couldn't help it. 

Now the texture of the Pixie Dusts was not as bad as I expected. It really was weird though. I don't hate the way it looks without a top coat, but I LOVE it with one. It sparkles regardless! I found one coat of Gelous and one coat of Poshe plenty sufficient to cover the texture. Who knows, I might pick up the rest of the collection just because I love Vespa with a top coat!


  1. These colours are so soft and pretty together! I haven't tried the Pixie Dusts myself yet, but I love that they have such a great look both with and without top coat.

  2. Haha, how coincidental! I'm wearing almost the exact same mani right now!! One thing I did though was use Neely as a base coat on all my nails so I really only had to use one medium-thick coat of Vespa. :-)
    I suppose you could do the same thing with Blu and Nyx and something like Essie Sand Tropez and the nude Pixie Dust. Just some ideas to conserve all that beauty! I love your accent nail too - cute idea! I did FeiFei as an accent because I got that one in the same Zoya order and I really wanted to try it out. ;-)
