Happy Friday dear readers! I hope you are having a fantastic day.
Last night I was trying to decide what to do with my nails for the day. I tried a bunch of layering combinations on a nail wheel, but nothing was speaking to me. I was looking through my drawers at my untried polishes, and came across the beautiful Zoya Renee. This first photo is the most color accurate.
I decided that I wanted to wear it! My mind immediately started thinking about what I could put on top of it. But then, I thought to myself, "STOP." Just leave well enough alone! So I put it on by itself, topped it with topcoat, and that was that.
Zoya Renee is a creme polish from the La-Di-Da collection of 2009. It's a summer polish, but I say to hell with seasonal rules, because I'm gonna wear what I want to wear when I want to wear it! :) It's a pink neon with a touch of coral in it. Very pretty. I know it doesn't look so neon in these pics, but it does appear much brighter in sunlight.
I have had shrinkage problems with Zoya in the past. I thought it was my topcoat but it still shrank after I switched topcoats... however I have discovered that wrapping your tips can fix that problem. Ever since I started doing that, all the shrinking stopped! Hooray!
Wearing just a simple creme polish on my nails after so many nail art/glitter manicures lately has been such a wonderful breath of fresh air! My friend Kimberly described it as a palate cleanser, and she absolutely hit the nail on the head.
