Zoya Stamped Nail Art

TGIF, dear readers! This has been the first week that my husband has been back at work full time since the holidays started, and it certainly has felt like a long one! It has taken several days, but we now seem to be back to our normal routine- right in time for the weekend! Ha! C'est la vie, I suppose!

In my previous blog post, I reviewed the Zoya Whispers Transitional Collection. I'm loving the look of these neutrals, and I ended up creating a nail art look with the full six piece collection and additional shades. Check it out!
I started off with Cala as my base, and then I randomly placed April, Eastyn, Ireland, Lake and Misty on top. I loved the look as my accent nail from my swatch photos like this one below.
Once I had it on all my nails, it just didn't seem interesting enough any longer. I decided to spice things up by stamping over the look with Zoya Lael and Neeka. I had no idea if they would work or not, and I was delighted to see Neeka was able to stamp so I could have subtle golden shimmers on my nails. I used stamping plate BP-L 003 from Born Pretty Store for both the stamp images. I then topped my nails off with top coat for these photos.

I learned from this experience that I love neutral nails, but very neutral nail art on all of them is just too boring for me. I needed just a little more colour! I love the final look, and I've actually been enjoying it for several days now. That almost never happens!

I hope you've enjoyed today's blog post! What sort of nail art would you do with these shades? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, have a great day and wonderful weekend!
XO!
