Supplies used:
Zoya Goldie
Hot Topic brand
Seche Vite as a top coat
Nail stickers (blogged about here // bought from here)

I can't recommend Zoya Goldie highly enough. It's a fabulous polish. Zoya is possibly my favorite brand and Goldie is definitely my favorite polish from them. It applies so nice and, if you do it just right, in one coat! (PS. I have a whole post coming soon-ish about my favorite polishes and why. I'm excited to share.)

I also, surprisingly, love Hot Topic nail polish. I've literally had this stuff for at least six years and it's still a great consistency. If you're wondering why I was able to hang on to and not use up a nail polish in six years it's because in high school I bought a bunch of them because black nails were totally the coolest. Then all of a sudden I got bit by the color bug and thought black nail polish was really boring. Aaaaanyways for $2.99 I think Hot Topic nail polish is pretty darn amazing. When I finally run out of black I'll be buying it again. I didn't realize how hard it was to find a black nail polish that covered in one coat and this one certainly does.

I think this is my favorite shaped nail stickers. Buuuut don't hold me to that because I know next time I do my nails with another sticker I'll say "Oh my gosh, this is like my favorite everrrrr!" It's just such a great shape. Doesn't the sticker itself kind of look like owl eyebrows? Hah!!

  8. I totally ordered some of those nail stickers right after that post about them, I couldn't help myself! The shapes are TOO cute and I cannot wait to try them out!

    I have had some great polish from Hot Topic and also some not so great, it was on clearance and seemed old, I wonder if certain pigment can spoil more than others? Hmm...scientific nail polish thoughts!

    Where do you buy Zoya? I have only seen it online but I have particularly looked for it in stores, I'm hooked on Essie at the moment!

  15. I don't think I've ever seen Zoya polish. I know I had never heard of it before you began posting about it. That sticker also resembles a mustache. That could make for a super-cute nail tutorial-little nail mustaches. ;)

  16. turns out Rimmel makes super nice nail polish and only needs one coat. I use their black for nail art (and touching up scratches on my bike) and it always looks purdy.

  18. It looks like a whale's tail to me! I like Zoya too, Goldie looks like Trixie's golden sister, so I'm definitely going to be looking into it! I can't do those super cool foil nails so these polishes are the closest I can get!

  19. Hot Topic Brand is pretty good. Wet n Wild black also covers in one coat. You can usually get it for 1-2$ at Walgreens or CVS
