The Zoya Cashmere Collection brings all the warmth and richness of fall that you would expect, boasting deep jewel tones and cozy browns. In today's nail art, I've combined three of the shades in a simple striped manicure.
When I first opened up this collection, it was a given that I would be using Zoya Louise and Zoya Flynn together in some nail art. The chocolate brown of Louise just paired too beautifully with Flynn's camel color for me not to.
But then, the question was which other shade to add into the mix! Pepper, the brick red from the collection, would lend a Burberry feel, while Hunter, a forest green, would make the look more earthy. In the end, I selected Zoya Livingston, a cherry red, because I thought the pop of bold color would look great with the neutral browns.
I know I can't resist a color palette that reminds me of chocolate covered cherries, either...
I painted all of my nails with two coats of Livingston. I then sealed them in with topcoat and let them dry completely before moving on to the next steps of this manicure.
Using nail art striping tape, I created some differently sized horizontal stripes on all of my nails. I also made sure that the stripes were positioned in different spots on each nail.
Then, using a small nail art brush, I painted alternating stripes of Louise and Flynn within the guides of my tape. When I removed the tape, clean stripes remained! A final layer of topcoat and the manicure was finished.
I like the consistent-yet-inconsistent aspect of this manicure. All of the nails match together perfectly, but they don't match together perfectly, you know what I mean?
It's perfectly imperfect, I think.
The Zoya Cashmere Collection is available now on Zoya.com, where each shade retails for $8.
