NOTD 104/105 – Fail Storm

As most of you saw the first week of January, Zoya hosted this amazing sale! Get three Zoya colors for only the shipping of $10.00 It seems like forever ago…. I just got mine after impatiently waiting! LOL One of the colors I wanted is of course a very popular color and was backordered. The polishes arrived today and just in time too!

Yesterday, I painted a design with “Deborah Lippmann – Strange Love” as the base, I then used some nail art tape and made some designs using “Zoya – Kissy” I didn’t like the contrast, it was way too close and you couldn’t see Strange Love in between. I took “Milani – nail art in silver glitter” and painted some stripes to frame it off. I didn’t HATE it, but I certainly didn’t love it. After one day, my polish all started to chip off so of course, I then hated it. I did not have this problem with “New Flesh” so I am not sure if it’s my base coat or “strange love”.

In any event here is one crappy picture of, the one day mani ,as I was not able to take pics with my lightbox before it chipped.

Okay so now onto the best part 😀

So my 3 Zoya’s I got were, “Storm”, “Charla”, and “Suri”. Since “Storm” is so sought after of course I had to try that one first. I will pick one of the others for this weeks ‘Featured Color Friday’

Here I am holding “Charla”

Isn’t this color fabulous!!!!

So back to the base coat, I will leave you off with a question: What base coat does everyone use? I have been using nailtiques or Nailtek to help with the chipping and peeling but it doesn’t seem to keep the polish on. Other base coats I was using kept the polish on but my nails were cracking and peeling. So tell me what you use 🙂 I think I need to switch it up a bit here..

Don’t forget about the giveaway, still one week away until TWO winners are chosen! :D *NOW CLOSED*
