Zoya Pandora #563

Zoya Pandora #563 from the Touch collection.  Definitely a cool toned nude.  This is much more my style!  (er, color!) Has the same micro shimmer as the rest of the collection.  Super shiny! 

Zoya Shay 562

Zoya Shay 562 from the Touch collection.  This is another pretty nude from the set.  It's more neutral in tone and works better with my skin tone.  I would say my skin is neutral in tone but works better with cool tones.  Minka seems to bring out the warm tones, while Shay brings out the cool.  It has the same mircro shimmer characteristics, barely seen, but adds shine and tone.  :)  I like this one. 

Zoya Minka 561

Zoya Minka 561 from the Touch collection.  It's a warm nude shade with glints of shimmer.  The shimmer is micro, and if you are a cream fan, you'd barely notice it.  Now, with the super close pics I took, you can clearly see it.  But in person?  If you look closely or stand in the sun maybe.  The shimmer seems to be there more to loan it additional color.  It's barely-there pink tone helps it.  If the polish had no shimmer at all, it might look very very bland. It's an unnoticeable shimmer that aids in it's shiny-ness and color.   It looks ok on my skintone.  Not my fave shade on ME, but it is a pretty polish.  I'm thinking this will be more of a pedi color for my toes.  Some pics make it look more yellow than it really is.  It's definitely a nude shade, and warm at that, but not yellow.  The pics I took with flash show it best.

Speaking of sun, there is none today, and it is freezing in my apartment.  I'm not sure why I didn't just close the window, but for some reason I like the cool Fall air.  Thus my hands are also cold and my fingertips bright red.  Sorry...
p.s.  click on them...they'll become huge!  :D

What Zoya color do you want to see swatched????

I practically have them all, and never know which ones to swatch!  I'm going to swatch the Zoya Touch collection today. Are there any others you are dying to see?

It's getting colder!

It's getting colder, and you know what that means!  Scarf weather!  :)  Along with polishing my nails, I also crochet!  :)

Don't mind the Frankenstein bust, it's the perfect prop!  :D  I'll be polishing my nails tomorrow, stay tuned!  :)

Zoya Tess 420

My nails are very short at the moment, as I just filed them down today.  In a spur-of-the-moment fashion I decided to polish my nails tonight.  It is 10:30 as I type this.  I recently bought a new camera and was itching to try it out in polished fashion. :)  I bring to you, Tess!

Zoya Tess is a soft metallic pink with undertones of red.  Too pink to be red, but just enough red to not be completely pink.  Very cool toned.  I love this's so pretty!  Even on super short nails it looks cute!

I couldn't decide on just one or two pics, so I'm bringing you four!   Click for full size!

Fingers Crossed!

...I think it's working! My Nimue vid appears to be rendering!!  YAY!

Video software is being a butt.

Either that or I really don't know what I'm doing.  I had made a video of all the separate vids I did of the Mirrors collection, but every time I go to render it, the software just closes!  I'm going to start over.  This is beyond frustrating.  Stay tuned.  With any luck, I'll have the vids up sometime today!
