Misty Blue

I'm not sure what I was thinking when I painted my nails this color.  I was rifling through my box of polish, looking for something soft, maybe a pale pink or pale purple.  I picked out Zoya Breezi, a color I got when I bought their color lock system back in June, and thought I'd give it a whirl.

This color is much darker than I was expecting.  Zoya describes the color as:
"Soft, dusty, dirty medium cerulean blue with an opaque cream finish.  A super chic high-fashion denim look for nails."
but in the bottle I thought it was more sky blue than steel blue.  It's not.  To try and hide the color I stamped M.A.S.H. plate m63 with China Glaze Platinum Silver on top.  I have a lovely sweater that would go great with this polish, too bad it's summer.  Please ignore my thumb; I probably redid that nail four times before I gave up on it.  Smudges, bubbles, crooked design, ugh!

I really like how this polish looks in the light bulb photo but the actual color is more true to the sun photo.  Lame.

I have to admit, this is the nicest polish job I've ever done on my nails.  I usually flood my cuticles with polish, or get it all over the sides of my fingers - trying to overcompensate for having really small nail beds!  This looks so much better.


  1. Seriously one of my most favorite plate designs EVER! For flooded cuticles do clean up with a cheap art paintbrush - makes cleanup a snap and gives you quick, even lines. Love this combination by the way!

  2. I've got a wretched paintbrush that is like using a twig to clean up with, lol. I think it'll just be easier to try and avoid painting near the cuticle at all.
