Zoya Ziv and a few lights too!

Good morning everyone reading! Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I have had trouble getting into the blog and couldn't make any posts. I've had a busier than normal week, I've been watching my great nephew who is always going and talking and talking and talking LOL. So let me show you what I've had on my nails most of this week.

Zoya Ziv

This is Zoya's Ziv from their Ornate collection. This is such a gorgeous metallic gold polish. It is like having gold foil on your nails. I only used one coat and had full coverage, no brush strokes or streaks. Also very minimal tip wear and no chipping after 3 days of having it on.

Ziv is such a great gold polish and can be used for so many looks. I think it could be used for an elegant dinner party look, a rockin New Years Eve look, and even for a fun every day look. It is definitely my favorite gold polish I own! I'm sure I will be using it alot.

In a group I'm in we do makeup/nail challenges. It is a fun way to get people excited about doing and sharing their looks. We always have so much fun with the challenges that Wendi the one and only Makeup Zombie gives us. At the end of the time we are given to come up with our looks, she then posts them to her blog for the world to see. This weeks challenge was Metallic, and I can't believe how hard it was for me to decide on what to do and use. That is until Ziv came in the mail! Here is what I did for the challenge.

 Look at Ziv shine!
Of course I started with 1 coat of Ziv, then I went to work on the lights. For the light strand I used an ultra fine point black sharpie and just drew the strand how I wanted it to look. I then took a dotting tool and used Pure Ice On His Saddle, Color Club Berry And Bright and Glitter Wonderland, and Zoya Ivanka to make the lights. That was it. Super easy, super simple, but super cute. I do think I may have gotten carried away and added a few too many lights though. I will suggest that if you use a sharpie for any of your designs to make sure you use a topcoat to seal it. It does rub off pretty easily.

You can find Makeup Zombie's blog here. Make sure to check out the challenge post that should be up soon!

What is your favorite gold polish?

Peace, Love and Cupcakes!
