I haven’t done a watermarble in a while so I decided Christmas one would be fun! I tried out several combos of polishes before I settled on these and they marbled really well.
They remind me of ribbon candy. My sis said they reminded her of those dipped wax candles they used to make at the mall. You know the ones? Several dips in different colors then they would cut and design these awesome candles. I remember one year that was what I really wanted for Christmas and that’s what my sister got me! She’s so awesome!
White base is Julep Brigitte
Red is Julep Myrtle
Green is Julep Celia
This close up really shows the flaws, but they really do look great!
This is two coats of Zoya Sooki (a most perfect red!) and the accent nail painted freehand with white acrylic paint. It’s all topped with HK Girl quick dry top coat.
What do you think?
Have you gotten in on Zoya’s rerelease of their matte polishes? Their polish is amazing and the matte finishes are no different.
GET BACK IN MATTE! RE-RELEASE!!!
All of the color, none of the shine! Meet your perfect matte with MATTEVELVET* **, Zoya’s exclusive shine-free formula. Choose from six best-selling matte nail polish shades with a luxurious crushed velvet finish and subtle shimmer.
Right on trend, these exclusive shades are being reintroduced for a limited time only!
ZP499 – DOVIMA: Shimmering Black MatteVelvet*.
ZP500 – POSH: Shimmering Crimson MatteVelvet*.
ZP505 – HARLOW: Shimmering Wine MatteVelvet*.
ZP504 – SAVITA: Shimmering Plum MatteVelvet*.
ZP506 – VERUSCHKA: Shimmering Evergreen MatteVelvet*.
ZP498 – LOREDANA: Shimmering Gunmetal Gray MatteVelvet*.
*MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear.
COLLECTION PRE-ORDER STARTS SOON!
ZOYA IS THE HEALTHY COLOR OF FASHION!
Zoya MATTEVELVET* colors are available exclusively on Zoya.com and in ULTA beauty stores (ask for them).
Meet Oswin. Isn’t she beautiful?
This is one of three polishes in Zoya’s new Ultra PixieDust collection. This makes the third type of PixieDust that Zoya has created. The original was PixieDust, then came Magical PixieDust and now Ultra PixieDust. You can see my swatches of the different types if you follow each link.
This is three coats of Orwin without base coat or top coat per Zoya’s recommendation. The key to this type of polish is thin coats and to let them completely dry in between coats. I’ve found that if you don’t give them plenty of dry time between coats, they end up looking not nearly as matte. You’ll also notice (or maybe you won’t until I point it out) that there is a sliver glitter piece on my ring finger. This mani is on its second day of wear and some of the chunkier glitter places actually chipped off. I don’t think it ruined this mani in any way, but if you don’t like it, you could always put another coat on the top or use a toothpick and just put a tiny dot over any silver spots that show up.
So what’s the difference between the three? They’re all matte and textured, but original PixieDust has a sugared sparkle, Magical PixieDust has “Mega Hex Iridescent Particles,” and Ultra PixieDust has the large hex glitter, but they’re not iridescent/holographic. They’re all gorgeous!
And for all of you Doctor Who fans, yes, the beautiful polish is named for Oswin Oswald. We know her now as Clara. My husband doesn’t like her as a companion but I think she’s adorable!
Great formula and a nice flat brush. I have a few other polishes from Fancy Gloss and I’ll post them later.

Here’s what’s on my nails today. I pulled this one out of my stash. I’ve always loved the OPI Designer Series polishes. I’m pretty sure they were my first introduction to holos.
The sun’s not playing nice for the pictures today.
Do you have this one? Do you have a favorite OPI DS polish?
