I think I have mentionned before that Zoya is one of my favorite nailpolish brands. Since about two weeks swatches of Zoya's lovely Spring Collection started to pop-up all over the nailpolish world. I anxiously await their availability for us European fans. AND I hollered excitedly when I learnt that Pshiiit Boutique could include Zoya into their product range. What better reasons than the aforementioned are needed to call this a Zoya week?!?!?!? And because of the lack of the new colors, let's dip our nails into former collections: Zoya Shawn from their Wicked and Wonderful Collections for Fall 2010.

I applied two coats of Shawn over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Shawn is so shiny that I did not need to apply a Top Coat.
In my opinion this is a timeless shade of green and while having been released as part of a Fall Collection I love to wear this polish throughout the year.
As I have stated before my skills in nailart are on toddler-level but I still want to sometimes add a little twist to a mani if I wear it for more than a day or two. I will start with the simplest of them all: doing an accent nail. To tune-up Shawn I picked Ana Hickmann Sugar for my ring finger. Ana Hickmann is a nearly-neon pink leaning jelly. Application is absolutely easy - you look here at two coats of Sugar WITHOUT Top Coat - so absolutely non-neon behaviour.
IRL Sugar was not all THAT overwhelming but just adding a bright fleck of color and more coral. In my picture (as a matter of fact in all pictures I took) it looks like a true pink. Looking at the picture now it nearly knocks out my eyes.
Do you also like to do a accent nail with a contrasting color?
I order my Zoya polishes with Nailcare Club and since last week European fans of Zoya can also order these gems with Pshiiit Boutique .
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
