Simple Art with Zoya Belinda, Dream, & Seraphina

9:00:00 AM

Hey everyone!  Hope you're doing well!!  I've been enjoying some gorgeous Fall weather we've been having the last few days.  I'm hoping it lasts through the weekend so I can possibly get some apple picking in so I can start baking with fresh apples.  Nothing is better than apple pie or apple cookies.  Mmmm I want an apple pie now.

Today I'm bringing you a manicure I did using polishes from the Winter 2013 Zenith collection by Zoya.  A week or so ago, I posted a Press Release from Zoya introducing everyone to the gorgeous colors in this new collection.  I was quick to fall in love with the collection from just from the promo pics, and when I received the polishes last week, I was head over heals.  I posted a picture of them on Instagram, along with a little video of the sparkly beauties.

For this manicure, I wanted to use Belinda, the gorgeous purple, and Dream, the blue sister of Aurora.  These two stood out to me the most, especially since purple and blue are my favorite colors.  I grabbed Seraphina, the silver metallic of the collection, and began painting.

Here's the simple design I came up with.




Colors Used:

  • Zoya - Belinda
  • Zoya - Dream
  • Zoya - Seraphina
Gorgeous, right?  Sorry that the coloring is off in the last photo.  Since it's now Fall, even though it's sunny out here, the sun is in a different position in the sky, and everything seems off.  Still, you can see the sparkly gorgeousness of Dream.

Before I start talking about Dream, let's talk about Belinda.  I kind of hate the name (no offense to Belinda's out there), but when I hear the name, for some reason I think of Glenda the Good Witch from Wizard of Oz, and I think of pink.  Weird how my mind works, but that's how I'm wired.  I can best describe this polish as the purple sister of Zoya Neve from the Satin Collection.  Both are deep colors with gorgeous shimmery flecks.  Where Neve was blue with purple and pink flecks, Belinda has blue and pink flecks.  Just as Neve, Belinda applied very easily with two coats.  If you wanted a deeper color, you could have used three, but I really didn't see the point.  With a top coat of Out the Door, the polish was just as shiny as Neve also.

Now it's time to talk about Dream.  How gorgeous is that sparkly beauty on my middle finger?  I was most excited for Dream because as I said, it's the sister of Aurora from last years winter collection.  In all fairness, it's the sister of Storm and Blaze as well.  Last year, I purchased Aurora and Storm and was never regretful of that decision, if you can find them, buy them.  I believe everyone needs dream as well, especially if you love Blue polishes.  I applied so well in two coats and was so holo glitter packed.  This polish is perfectly named, it's a dream.

Seraphina is the metallic silver on my ring finger.  Just as the other polishes, it applied very well in two coats.  I could have used three to make the silver stand out a little more in this manicure, but since I was planning on covering it with some form of art, I decided two was enough.  I'm excited to use this for more winter manicures.  It reminds me of snow.

For the design, I followed this tutorial I found on Pinterest.  I wanted something simple so it wouldn't take away from the beautiful colors.  I was overall pleased how it turned out, as it looks kind of tribal to me.  I need more practice with making straight lines using a nail art brush.  Next time, I may use an Orly Instant Artist if I do this design again.

What do you think?  Like the colors from the Zenith Collection?  Like the design?

These colors, along with Cassedy, Payton, and Mosheen (all gorgeous, head on over to my Instagram to see bottle shots), will be available October 1st on Zoya's website.  If you like glitter, I highly suggest picking up Dream, Payton (which is the darker version of last years Blaze), and Mosheen (the glitter top coat).  All are perfect for winter!  Who am I kidding, the whole collection is perfect for winter.

Until next time, <3.
