Zoya Jules + Konad Argyle Tips

Hi all! Thank you for patiently waiting for my next post >_<; Luckily everything is working out just fine with my doggie and she is going to get the drain taken out today! Yippie! 

So even though things have been kinda hectic I managed to squeeze in some ManiMe time and here are my nails for this week ~ 

I recently snagged this golden Zoya nail polish Ulta for half off! *love deals* After trying my first Zoya lacquer in Kelly gray, which I posted about here, I was dying to get my hands on another! And sure enough it did not disappoint ^_^

This golden-silver polish is aptly named Jules thanks to the multicolored micro-glitter suspended in the semi-opaque base. And before you jump on me about how can things be "golden silver" think of Antique Pewter teapots. In direct sunlight, above, it is an elegant gold with hints of cool silver but in the shade, below, it takes on a steely quality with a warm undertone.

It really is the epitome of a mixed metals look which makes it a versatile neutral without being boring beige. I especially love the different colors that get caught in the tiny glitter which run the spectrum from greens, yellows, oranges and reds. It is like they took a handful of jewels, ground them up into dust and poured it in. <3 

Unfortunately, my camera and lighting just aren't doing Jules justice but at least you can get a closer look at the Konad m60 plate design I used to stamp the tips. Once again I used my previous taping trick to get clean lines for my french tips. I rubbed on some Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Night  Flight and voila! 

Simple, Fast, and Elegant! 

Thank you so much for reading! And please lemme know if you have any questions :D
