I wore two holo polishes this New Years, a silver one from Zoya and a black one from Julep.  For a little confetti I added an Essie Luxe Effect topcoat on my middle and added some nail gems on my ring.  Quick, easy and festive!

I used Avon Nailwear Pro in Seabreeze with Zoya Alicia as my accent nail. Seabreeze may no longer be available but you can get the exact same color with Avon Speed Dry in Turquoise Pop! (on sale for $4.99)

Mugshot Monday: Zoya Cho

A huge nail trend for late winter early spring is nude nails.  They were all over awards season on plenty of celebrities.  Most top brands released a nude in their collections, including Zoya’s full on nude collection, the natural collection, being a huge hit.  I think this time of year we like a clean, natural nail look, our transition period from the darks and glittertastics of winter and holiday but before the bright and punchy colors of summer.  Lately my current obsession has been nude nails, I’ve been wearing Zoya Cho non-stop for the past couple of weeks!

I definitely like this as a winter color… kinda of like a winter stormy sky.  When we’re ready for a break from wearing vampy colors and reds all fall and winter long insert in Kristen.  BUT I also love it as a spring shade.  Its got a great pastel blue feel and with it’s grey undertones it works well in more conservative environments like work.  And look how cute it looks paired with a turquoise ring!  It looked so sharp paired with white outfits!  Just like my Kristen, it’s a winner!  And it needs to use its powers for good (Kristen knows what I’m talking about haha)

My ring is the Pretty Stellar ring from mark. available April 20th at my eboutique http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com  If you want it now hit me up and I can order you one.  Its going to be a go to accessory all spring and summer long!  Since my pic is so overexposed you can’t really tell how nicely it sparkles!

Time To Try Zoya

So!  Zoya, the nail polish brand, is having a new years offer not to miss.  You can pick 2 bottles of their polish for FREE just have to pay shipping!  If you love them or just trying them for the first time here’s your chance!  You have until January 9th, 2012.  Check the details on Zoya’s blog:

http://zoyanailpolish.blogspot.com/2012/01/let-zoya-color-your-world-in-2012.html

I recommend checking out their winter 2011 collection, Feel.  It has some awesome cream shades muted and neutral but still pretty and different.  Or from their fall 2011 collection, Smoke and Mirrors.  The fall collection has great smoky creams and shimmers that are still totally wearable for the next couple of months and beyond!

And if you still need help deciding check out one of my favorite nail polish blogs, http://www.scrangie.com and select “Zoya” from her right hand list to see all her swatches.

I’m freakin exctied and so should you!
