NOTD: Zoya Holly & Zoya Opal

Hi, you guys! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty uneventful. It was raining and gray the whole weekend, so I mostly holed up inside and caught up on tv shows and movies, emerging outside only in search of food. :)

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd show you a recent gorgeous green mani of mine:




This is one coat of Zoya Opal over two coats of Zoya Holly. Holly by itself is already one of my favorite green looks, but adding Opal on top made it catch the light from every angle and just glow from within. Up close, you can see the individual flakes in the green, but from an arm's length, it gives the impression of dancing green fire on the nails... totally amazing! :D

Do you guys like flakies as much as I do? If so, what's your favorite combination? :)

** Zoya Opal is a press sample.

  6. Gahh! Love this. Love the green! Wish flakies would come back Big Time - just recently came into the nail polish obsession community and not many of the flakies left for purchasing, especially the really nice ones. Bring Them Back!

    1. Ah, thank you so much, I'm really glad you like this! :D I love flakies too. They're so easy to layer on top of any mani to add fun and sparkles. Oh, I just realized Zoya no longer sells Opal (or any of their other flakies). That's a bummer! You may still be able to find them via ebay or amazon. Good luck. :)
