Zoya Matte Velvets Collection (Partial)

Zoya Matte Velvets! I think these are famous by now, and I am late in posting them, but wow, what a collection! These matte velvets were released a while ago and were re-released by popular demand. They have rich, jewel tones and a matte finish. I picked up five of the six colors, only because my stores didn't have the sixth. I don't know the official inspiration for the names, but they all seem to be famous models. There are a ton of pictures in this post, so I will just dive right in and have an overview at the end.

Bamboo Nail Stamping

Press Samples Included

I have a lovely bamboo stamping look to share with you today! I have to say, I have been wanting a bamboo stamp for ages and when I finally got one, I had that moment of excitement when I think of too many things to do and I just can't settle on anything. Finally I decided not to do green and go with a great bronze color!

Work Wear Wednesday: Monochrome Chevrons

It is Work Wear Wednesday again! I have been slacking in posting lately, and for that I am sorry. I really wanted to make sure I got this up on Wednesday even though it is late. I decided to go with a simple two tone look. I created a chevron design just using Nail Vinyls and L'Oreal polishes.

I have Steal the Spotlight and Mirrorball! Mirrorball has been the talk of the nail community for a long while now. It seems really difficult to get, but oh so beautiful and while I was picking it up I came across Steal the Spotlight as well.

Favorite Nail Art of 2014!

Wow, I cannot believe another year has come and gone. It seems like last new year was just here! Seriously, the years just keep getting faster and faster. It has been a really interesting year blog wise and I have a little nail art favorites to share with you! I feel like I did a lot more nail art this year, which is something I love, so I was really happy to have had a difficult time narrowing this list!

Zoya India Gold Leaves

I have beautiful Zoya India and some nail stamping to share with you! Zoya India is a darker red with shimmers and was released in their fall collection. I wasn't able to find many of the colors, but I found India, and she is lovely! I decided to add some gold stamping with Born Pretty Store BP-19 which has a beautiful leaf theme. I used Maybelline Bold Gold as my stamping polish.

Duck Nails for the Rose Bowl

Yesterday was the Rose Bowl! The University of Oregon Ducks football team was playing against Florida State, and my husband loves the Ducks. I remain neutral on the Ducks v. Beavers civil war within the state, but when the Ducks play in a bowl game I'll do my nails for that! Don't worry Beavers, I'll do my nails for you too when you make it to a bowl game.
