Hello and happy weekend!! Where are you in the world? After spending my entire life living through NYC winters, I'm now in the Seattle, Washington area. Lots of grey and rain but it's been sunny and decidedly Spring-like here in the PNW. Since the end of February! I was actually feeling guilty basking in the sunshine without a jacket watching my kids play outside this morning, knowing my family back in NY are still freezing their butts off! Anyway...that bring me to this glorious, sweet and fresh DELIGHTful Spring collection from Zoya.
It's nearly three years (minus a month) from the first sugar spun mani I ever did, (my most stolen image!) also using all Zoya polishes so I felt compelled to recreate a pastel rainbow with this collection. I adore how it turned out!!
Have you done a "sugar spun" mani? I find them fairly easy to do, just time consuming and messy. But I've found short cuts for both of those!
You can find a tutorial for this method in my tutorial tab (which btw I really need to update). It involves stirring and airing out a drop of polish until it gets stringy. It's kinda annoying and takes a while. This time though I just left the drops on my wax paper (not touching them) for a few minutes. The polish naturally starts to dry. Then I stir and mix it and it strings up so easily.
And my second shortcut (to avoid the inevitable mess in this method) is Color4Nails Crystalline Nail Veil! Separate review post coming next for that product!
My husband's first comment when he saw these (the top coated version) - he thought I drew it on with markers! Cool, eh?
Zoya Delight collection:
Eden - a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish
Daisy - a refreshing lemon merengue yellow metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash.
Tiana - a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish
Lillian - a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish
Rayne - a dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash.
Leslie - a soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash. (Shout-out to my bestie over at Work Play Polish, hope it's everything you hoped for girl. LOL)
Yep, I might have gone picture happy in this post, but honestly...these pics DO make me happy! :)
You can see the shimmers quite easily here. Swoon!
The above and below are how it looks with top coat. Gah. Love. I was super sad to take this one off!
Are you lovin the sugar spun look? Have you picked up any (or all!) of these? Which shade is your fave? Mine is definitely Lillian. OH almost forgot to mention the white base is Zoya Purity!
