Zoya Dannii and Lynnderella

Happppppy New Year everyone!! I just finished up a wonderful three day weekend that I spent with a bunch of people that I very much care about, and am now (sort of) ready to get back on some kind of regular schedule. I love the holidays SO much but they can be tiring, you know?

I wore my New Years manicure for a solid three days (that is a MEGA long time for me!) and then it started chipping off too much for it to be appropriate for me to wear it anymore. But I wanted to do something quick so that I could get back to relaxing!

I chose Zoya Dannii out of my untrieds, and then put Lynnderella Connect the Dots on top of that. I actually discovered this combination while I was making nail polish earrings for all of my friends for Christmas presents, and I liked it so much that I chose to put it on my nails.


Zoya Dannii is lovely. Truly! It is a warm pinky purple with a gold shimmer. It is a beautiful and unique color; the shimmer is just gorgeous. I got this during a Zoya promo on Rebecca's suggestion and am sort of bummed that I have only just gotten around to wearing it now!


Here's the mani in my "new" hand position! I first debuted this hand position on my NYE mani and I kind of loved it, so I am going to try it out on my next few manicures, if I can remember. What do you guys think? I won't be getting rid of my classic hand position (the first pic) anytime soon, but I think that this new one could be a dynamic addition to the CN hand pose family!


I'm sure Connect the Dots is quite familiar to most of you by now. It is a Lynnderella classic... black and white glitter in bars, squares, small hexes, large hexes, and jumbo hexes (not shown). It's sort of like a splatter mani look in a bottle. Back when I ordered this I made sure to get two bottles so I never feel bad about using it. :)


Zoya polish can be bought on Zoya.com and Lynnderella is available at Llarowe (unfortunately, many of the Lynnderellas are out of stock for now).

Now here's something really exciting... my boyfriend gave me a belated Christmas present, and BOY WAS IT WORTH WAITING FOR!


YEP. UNICORN PEE. Are you excited or what?
