Spring 2013 Must Haves: Zoya Jacqueline

We come to the end of my Must Haves for Spring 2013 themed week. This post is to feature Zoya Jacqueline from their Lovely Collection. It seems pastels are big this season and shades of white take a lead in them. I have yet to see a major brand that does NOT feature a whitened polish for spring. From the rather vast choice out there at the moment I selected Zoya Jacqueline:

 Well, I think it is a known fact, that pastels are not the easiest of all polishes to apply. And while Jacqueline did not apply effortlessly it most certainly was easier than with my other whitened cream polishes in my stash. I applied one thin and a second thicker coat. I used Essence XXL Nail Thickener as Base Coat and Butter London Hardwear as Top Coat.

This is another polish that screams adornment, stamping and what have you. I last week got myself some black studs (among other goodies) from Pshiiit Boutique. Sometimes I find the simplest decoration the best. I put one black stud per nail for the look below. While minimalistic and toned down it still works for the office (at least for me).

Adding those studs is really a piece of cake: I always put some on a small plate, paint my nail with a not too quickly drying Top Coat and place the studs using tweezers - done!!! This method so far proofed rather well lasting - I tested it with dish washing and showering - I did not loose any of them.

Did you pick any white-ish polishes for spring?

I ordered Zoya Jacqueline with NailEtc.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!

    1. Thank you Ina :-) I am so happy you like the studs, it is my substitute for dots - I tried some but they're rather blotches ;-P - I know practise, practise, practise..... <3

  3. This is so fresh and clean, lovely for spring! And it looks great on you! :D
