Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Weekly Nail

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Supplies Used:
Zoya - Goldie
Essie - Meet Me At Sunset
Sinful Colors - All About You
Seche Vite as a top coat
Scotch Tape

First I just have to mention that Meet Me At Sunset still makes me crack up about how I thought it said "Meet Meat Sunset" at first. The spacing between the words is just slightly awkward so even though I know what it really says I can't get this meat sunset out of my head.

I'm pretty sure I got this Zoya color directly from their website. The have really awesome offers from time to time if you sign up for their mailing list. A few months back they had an offer where you could get three full sized polishes for free, you just had to pay for shipping which was around $6. So it was certainly a deal!  Zoya is possibly my favorite nail polish brand. All of the colors I have apply smoothly and dry super quick, this gold color is no exception. (By the way - I'm just speaking from experience. I'm not affiliated with Zoya and I have no idea when the next awesome offer will be)

Hope you're having an awesome Sunday!
xoxo

  1. i feel creepy commenting two days in a row right after you put up a post!

    i have my own ideas about what a meat sunset might look like, but it's equally creepy. there's a lot of bacon.

    1. really, bacon? Upon first thought I see a big fat steak that's kind of bloody and pink, than when I think about it harder I see a big juicy ham.

  2. I love half and half nails like that. Sometimes I make the diagonal like 1/4 of the length and it looks really cool too!

  5. I need to try ordering from Zoya again. Kinda wish I could find them in a store because it took an entire month for me to receive my order last time :/ I did love them one I got them, though.

    1. If you're anywhere near a Ulta store, they carry Zoya. That's where I normally get them if not online.

      Also, amazon has a bunch!

  7. I love this color combo, and I love it even more when I think of it as being meat related. Mmmmm, red meat.

  9. Meat sunset? Seems normal if you've read cloudy with a chance of meatballs. That was my favorite book and I wished all the sunsets were made of meat!

  10. I like the way you used two colors I'm not crazy about and made something neato.

  11. I love that bronze color. That's the Zoya one with the Sinful Colors over the top? I usually don't have patience to paint my nails at all... even with a base coat and a top coat, they still start chipping off the next day at work :\

    1. Yep, the Zoya one is the pretty gold color. It looks just like it does in the bottle.

      If you're having problems with chipping you should try Seche Vite! Seriously, that stuff is amazing.
      :D

  12. What do you think about OPI nail polish? Do you use it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm actually not a fan of OPI. I have a handful of them but most of them I don't use because they just take too long to dry.
      In my opinion, OPI is overrated.

  13. I really like the colour combo. I have a technique question about the tape- do you put it on when the nail polish is wet or dry? I've read various posts from bloggers suggesting both ways and I can't decide which sounds most logical!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Dry, always dry! Drier than dry!
      Wet doesn't even make sense because it would just pull of the nail polish.

  14. Those are SO pretty! Also, they can easily be called Gryffindor nails! ;) (I'm a Hufflepuff myself...) Also, I love Zoya as well! I received a sample and oh wow. Just so pretty and I love quick drying nail polish! (I really would love a HUGE nail polish collection... Jen and I are adding slowly!)
