Zoya Mason & Neve Dot Flowers

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  Hope you are all doing fantastic today!  It's supposed to be a gorgeous day here, so I know I will be having one!  This weather is weird though, a few days ago it was barely 60 degrees and now today the high is 84.  Mother nature needs to make up her mind about what season it is.  Doesn't she know that she is making it hard for this little old blogger who is trying to figure out what type of manicure is appropriate to post?

Despite still having one more neon manicure to show you from my collection, I decided to go with this lovely manicure which I believe to be almost a transitional manicure.  The colors are from the new Zoya Satin collection which are gorgeous Fall shades, but at the same time are appropriate for the end of summer.

When I first received these polishes, I was unsure about them.  I really liked the Satins more than the Cashmeres but still wasn't 100% head over heals for them like I have been over previous collections.  This is mostly due to the fact I tend to gravitate towards bright, cheery colors most of the time.  The more I played around with these polishes though, I started to see how truly gorgeous darker colors can be.  Does this mean I'm going to start gravitating towards darker colors?  Well, for this season, let's hope so!

For today's manicure, I used Zoya Mason and Neve, and accented with an Orly from the Hope and Freedom Fest Collection.  I have to say, I think this is one of my first manicures where I didn't use a white accent nail.  Kind of forgot lighter colors can do the job just as nicely.

Enough of my babbling, time to look at the nails!




Colors Used:

  • Zoya - Mason
  • Zoya - Neve
  • Orly - Boho Bonnet
Kind of loving this manicure.  I kept it on for days, and even touched it up once or twice to keep it on a little longer.  I found that the darker colors made my nails look longer than what they really were.  Also, do you see how shiney Mason and Neve are?!  Literally, they were the shiniest polishes I have worn in a long time.

Zoya describes Mason as a "exciting red violet or Fandango Pink metallic" polish.  It truly is gorgeous.  I wasn't sure about this shade since I have a Sinful that is kind of similar that I never used and kind of kicked myself for buying.  Before doing this mani, I decided to use this polish for a Summer/Fall transition pedi with a top coat of Northern Lights and fell in love.  The polish applies very easily in two coats.

Zoya Neve also applied very easily with two coats.  Zoya describes this polish as a "sapphire blue metallic."  As a lover of blue polishes, I couldn't get over how gorgeous this one is.  In the light it has a pinkish purple shimmery flecks which give it such amazing depth.  My only complaint was that my brush is a little wonky and bends weird where it connects to the stick thing.  Probably just a manufacturing issue, and I would not say it made or break the polish.  I just had to be a tad more careful with it when applying, but again, two easy coats with no need for a third.

For the accents, I used two coats of Orly Boho Bonnet which is a grey blue polish.  Rather gorgeous, I've used it once before when I did my dandelions and it had such great wear time.  With my dotting tools, I created the little flowers using the Zoyas, and just like all other Zoya polishes, they work great for nail art.  I didn't have to go back over the dots to make the more pronounced and they didn't dry super fast that I couldn't work with them.  Loved them

What do you think?  Love Neve and Mason?  Have you picked up any of the polishes from the Satin collection?

If you follow me on Instagram, you can take a look at a swatch of Zoya Giovanna from this collection which is the emerald green shimmer polish.  I really liked this one as well.  Sadly, like all greens, I had a bit of a staining problem, but it came off after one shower.  Just like these two, it was super shiny.

Well, I am off!  Have a great day!  Until next time, <3.
