Happy 2013!

Happy New Year's everyone! I hope you were able to ring in the new year with great friends and families, or at the least, a great mani ;-) So many exciting things happened in 2012, I'm excited to see how 2013 turns out.
For today I have my New Year's mani; I did a gradient with three of my favorites from Zoya; Aurora, Storm and Blaze from the Ornate Collection. I love love love these colors and I was so pleased with how the gradient turned out.
I started out with 2 coats of the Aurora, then sponged on Storm for the middle layer and Blaze for the tips. Then topped it off with Seche Vite. I was also impressed with how well this mani wore. Unfortunately I had to get to cleaning a condo my hubby was working on so even with gloves, after a 10 hour day, there was only minor tip wear and no chipping.



Needless to say, Zoya remains one of my favorite mainstream brands of nail polish. I've yet to have a polish of theirs I don't like or have had trouble with.
 
Many happy wishes for you and your families for the new year my lovely friends!
May your acetone be strong enough to remove your glitter swiftly and your polish formula always be smooth! ;-)
