Nicole by OPI Roughles Collection

Hi, you guys! Hope your week is going well. We had a few days of sunshine, so I totally soaked up the vitamin D. But now it's back to rain and clouds... gotta love the Pacific Northwest. :P

Today, I have the Nicole by OPI Roughles (pronounced "ruffles") Collection to show you. These speckled pastels caught my attention from the moment I first saw the promo pictures. They look so fun and unique, I was just chomping at the bit to try them out. Without any further delay, here they are. :)

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? :)

NOTD: Zoya Lux & Zoya Emme

Hi, you guys! Hope your week is going well! :D

I've been loving the Zoya Magical Pixies lately, and wanted to show you one of my favorite looks with Lux. I had heard that some of the pixiedusts are great for layering, so I wondered how Lux would look over a different shade. Here's the result:

I have one coat of Zoya Lux over two coats of Zoya Emme, and I just love it! :) Emme's baby pink color is the perfect girly shade to put under Lux. And having just one coat of Lux instead of the usual two (when wearing by itself) makes the texture more subtle, while still retaining all of its sparkle.

Have you guys tried layering the pixiedusts? Let me know what combinations you've tried or want to try! :)
