Topcoat - No

Maisie is a discontinued polish from Zoya but can be described as a blue jelly base with green to blue to golden flakies.

Well Eradani is gorgeous! this could be a one coater in time, it was almost opaque in one coat, I had a couple of tiny bald spots so this is two coats. Great formula, no running or pooling, this dries dull so you'll want a top coat to get that shiny look.

Maisie is one of the Fleck effect polishes, this is a jelly polish with blue/green shifting flakies, for their time these were so unique, this has a good formula, no running or pooling but quite sheer, I did two coats over the black and white and three coats over my bare nails, I own all three polishes from the Fleck Effect set.

I got the Brew Dog/Lone Wolf GinVent Calendar again this year, Ellie was most interested, she didnt get closer than she was here though.

Jackie can be described as a brick red cream with orange undertones.

Honey is gorgeous, a super warm golden yellow, good formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats, this also stamps well.

Jackie is gorgeous but I see her as a very warm orange toned brown rather than a red, in my comparison of this set I showed her next to Natalie another orange toned brown, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one sweet coat, Jackie also stamps.

I only have a few more polishes to post about and then we move on to the blues and greens in my collection.

Third pic down shows all the yellows that Zoya have done, you can see that Honey stands out, its a very deep saturated yellow, theres a couple in that lineup that are discontinued, I also show Jackie in among the orangey toned browns I have.

I am still nursing a break to my middle finger on my left hand so apologies for the paint job on that finger, the patch is a bit wonky lol

I think I accidently found a bit of a dupe!

Rochelle is also gorgeous, another vampy red this time with a more purple undertone, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, Rochelle also stamps.

These are very close, I'd say there were only two or three shades apart, I've shown the swatch sticks together, plus the bottles under my LED lights and in daylight.

My weekend nails are three coats of MTK Designs Simply Meant To Be and then stamped with Zoya, Michaela and Darla and Virago Varnish Cannon Ball then a coat of Fancy Gloss Stained Glass over my index and little fingers :)

A Zoya A Day - Becca and Bentley

Hey Friends

Today on the blog we meet Becca and Bentley. I have somehow picked up a nasty cold from the one time we decided to go to a supermarket instead of ordering in!, I slept the whole of yesterday morning away, I've lost my voice and there has been much blowing of my nose and sniffing, thankfully it is not the rona as I can still smell and taste everything.  

I'm going to be taking a break next week as we are going to transform the smallest bedroom into a proper walk-in wardrobe, the previous owner put a built in wardrobe in the room but as you can see from the photos it does not make the most of the space.  Hubs has designed and 3D printed a bunch of brackets for a long full length clothing rail and then I'll put three sets of Malm drawers from Ikea underneath for things that cannot be hung up. The malm I got are the white ones, two that are four drawer and one that is a three drawer.

There will be a bonus post tomorrow.
