A Zoya A Day - Coco

Hi Friends

Today I'm sharing my manicure of Coco.

Available on the website - Yes
Brush used - Original
Name - Coco
Year - 2007
Number - ZP0422
Does it stamp - Yes
Coats - 2
Finish - Cream
Collection - Uptown
Colour - Mauve
Topcoat - No

Coco can be best described as a dark marsala mauve with brown, red and purple undertones with a smooth cream finish.

Coco is one of those chic colours that you can wear at any time and it looks good with any outfit, the colour is chameleon like, one minute it looks brown, then a red brown then a dark mauve pink. Great formula, no running or pooling and I did two coats.

Coco also stamps well. I have also purchased the new Beachy Brights 2 and Paisley the May polish of the month, I think they will be arriving here next Monday 3rd June.

Everyone is hoping for some sunny weather, the cats are still in winter mode, I had both cats crashed out on me this morning and Obi was hanging out in my office just now.

Monday Nails

Hi Friends 

Today I'm sharing my latest manicure, I cannot resist a thermal polish and Fancy Gloss are the best in my humble opinion, today I'm wearing Red Velvet, a dark red with a very strong red shimmer when its cold changing to a white with that strong red shimmer when its hot. 

I did two coats for the base then I stamped using Zoya Toni a dusty oxblood colour, plates are both Moyou, Festive 03 and Halloween 14.

Not sure what I've picked up on my right thumb, looks like glitter.  I've been testing out the Zoya Fast Dry drops and I am really liking them, they've been helping me if I do my nails after dinner at night. I had to run my hands under cold water to get the cold state, its very warm here in the UK at the moment. I really like this polish with the matte topcoat, it does give off velvet vibes.

Weekend Nails

Hi Friends

Today I'm sharing another manicure using Fancy Gloss Coral Daisy and my weekend manicure using Pistachio and Strawberry Icecream.

First up the manicure I wore from last Monday until yesterday, I did two coats of Coral Daisy then I stamped with Zoya Ziv and Virago Varnish Cannon Ball using plate B059 from Whats Up Nails.

Then yesterday I decides on Pistachio and Strawberry Icecream, I did two coats then stamped with Zoya Gwen, Virago Varnish Green Tea Frost and Whats Up Nails Blanc My Mind, the plates are Born Pretty Artist L003, BeautyBigBang XL-074 and Moyou Crystal Collection 08.

This turned out more subtle than I was expecting, Pistachio is a pink when cold to light pastel neon green when warm.

Weekend Mani

Hi Friends

Today I'm sharing my weekend manicure with you.

I started out with two coats of Fancy Gloss Dutch Iris, a periwinkle blue when cold to a pale sunshine yellow when hot, this also has a pale pinkie colour when warm but thats hard for me to capture as my internal thermostat doesnt work properly, I'm either freezing or boiling.

I then used stamping plate Whats Up Nails B059, polishes were Barry M Lemon Sorbet (yellow) and Virago Varnish Not A Happy Camper (blue).

I also broke the middle nail on my left hand, wearing a clear fake nail as below.

In other health news, the new medication for my migraine is really having an amazing effect, below are my stats for April, three migraine is almost unheard of for me, the medication is called fremanezumab aka Ajovy, I self inject with an auto-injector pen every 30 days.
