Gold Pinstripe Nails - Zoya Ornate Nail Art

Hey guys! Today I have a manicure for you that I created using the Zoya Ornate collection, Zoya's new collection for Winter/Holiday 2012.

The gorgeously deep and sparkly red nails are Zoya Blaze. It's a rich red (very holiday appropriate) with these amazing sparkly fleck pieces. The flecks are really interesting. They aren't a shimmer and they aren't a glitter, but they sparkle like it, and they lay completely flat! I only needed two coats for opacity.

The accent pointer is Zoya Storm. It has fleck pieces which are very similar to the ones in Blaze. It kind of reminds me of newly poured asphalt, but in a fashion-y, glamorous kind of way. Again, I used two coats here.

I originally posted this on my Instagram without the gold stripe down the middle, but I couldn't resist fussing with it just a little bit more!

I placed two pieces of striping tape down the middle of my nail, leaving a very thin space between them. I painted Zoya Ziv down the middle, and then removed the tape. It left this lovely, superthin gold pinstripe that I think complemented the manicure well.

Ziv is definitely a great gold, and I hope to show you more of it soon. Suffice to say, if you are a gold lover, you should get it!

Aren't the finishes on Blaze and Storm so cool? I just love the depth that they have... so interesting without being obnoxious. They definitely have the subtle bling thing down.

Expect more Zoya Ornate looks from me soon! This collection is beautiful!

The Zoya Ornate Collection is available for purchase now and can be found on for $8 each*.
