Zoya Jana

It's been a while since I've done a wear to work post about business appropriate nail polish.  Since my last post, I've moved to the west coast where the definition of business casual trends more towards casual.  Case in point: nice jeans are considered appropriate pants.


Today on my nails I'm wearing Zoya Jana.  Jana is a beautiful creme polish with gray, mauve, and purple tones.  She's not a traditional nude polish, but still a gorgeous shade of gray.

Pineapple Nails

I love pineapples.  I love how sweet they are.  I love the crowns they have on their tops.  I love their shape.  Painting pineapples on my nails have been a nail art bucket list item for me for over two years and when I was invited to a Hawaiian-themed birthday party I knew they'd be perfect.  For this design, I was inspired by the pineapple nails that Elle & Ish did a couple of years ago.



On my nails I'm wearing OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, Zoya Talia, and Zoya Purity for my bases.  To create the pineapple I used my dotting tools, OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, China Glaze Desert Sun, and Kiko 391.  The chevrons were done using nail vinyls and Zoya Talia over Zoya Purity.  A few gold stars and some top coat later and this manicure was ready to party.

Bonus?  I matched my nails to the pineapple shirt I was wearing.  #AllPineappleEverything

Neon Leopard Nails

I've been wanting to do neon leopard nails for ages, and today's the day.  I love how bright these turned out!




I used Zoya Purity for my base and Sally Hansen Black Out as the accents around the leopard colors, plus my trusty dotting tools to make the leopard prints themselves.  For the rest of the colors I used China Glaze neons: China Glaze Splish Splash, China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard, China Glaze Sun-Kissed, China Glaze Love's a Beach, and China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes (on my thumb).

Mermaid Nails

Mermaid nails are synonymous with summer for me.



I used Zoya Charla on my nails with Zoya Purity as my white base.  For the mermaid nails I used Vibrant Vinyl's Liquid Latex to block off my skin, mermaid scale vinyls from What's Up Nails, and then Zoya Charla and Zoya Ivanka in a gradient.

Alpha Omega Epsilon Sorority Nails

This is an old manicure of mine from 2014, but I've never shared it on my blog until now.  I'm part of Alpha Omega Epsilon, a professional and social sorority composed of female engineers and technical scientists.  I'm attending convention next week and thought it a fitting time to share this manicure.


For this manicure I used OPI Angel with a Leadfoot and OPI Russian Navy Suede for the base.  I stamped the designs using Vivid Lacquer VL017, Bundle Monster BM-320, Bundle Monster BM-415, and Bundle Monster BM-323.

Fourth of July Skittles Nail Art

 Today I have a 4th of July nail art idea to share with you.  This is a skittle manicure using some of my favorite Zoya polishes.  This design was super easy to do with a dotting tool and didn't take long at all.



For this manicure, I used Zoya America, Zoya Purity, and Zoya Sia.  I used the dotting tool for the dots on my accent nail and a silver metal star stud as another accent on my pinky.

Summertime Nail Art

It's summertime!  Today I'm showing off a super cute summer nail art design that I saw from The Nail Lounge Miramar's Instagram.  I thought it was adorable and perfect for the summer weather that has finally made its way to Oregon.


For this look I used OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, Zoya Tomoko, and Zoya Purity.  As usual, I made the daisies using dotting tools because it's the easiest way I know how to do nail art.
