Pink and gold star nail art with Zoya's Winter Holos

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy hump day! It has been a little while since I've shared nail art here on my blog, and I have a simple design to share with you today. I had originally planned to create a Valentine's Day look with the Zoya Winter Holos, but alas, the time has come and gone quickly with sickness playing a major role in my household all month long. I wasn't sure what other nail art look I wanted to do with these polishes until I stumbled across a pretty pink and gold celestial design while shopping for something online this past weekend. The unusual colour choices caught my attention, and I knew I had to get it on my nails! Let's check it out!

To create this look, I started off by painting my nails with two coats of Zoya Cadence

I then pulled from my old stash of Nail Vinyls a star pattern and circle designs that I overlaid to create waxing and waning moons.

Because Brighton, the gold Zoya polish isn't particularly opaque, I opted to thinly apply a coat of white polish over the vinyls and then Brighton. Adding the white base certainly helped to bring out the colour. I then removed the vinyls and added a layer of top coat to finish off my look.

While there are some things I'm not happy about, I do like this design overall. I had some polish with vinyl application issues as the white base polish had to dry first before applying Brighton, resulting in the vinyl pulling off some of the gold layer when I removed the vinyls. I think this design would have turned out better if I removed the vinyl between the white and gold layers. I had freehanded the gold on top in some areas where a substantial amount of polish was removed, but my caffeine-induced jittery hands were of no match for the accuracy needed. In spite of the flaws, I cannot help staring at my nails from time to time and will definitely have to recreate it under better circumstances!

Have you been enjoying the Zoya Winter Holos? I would love to hear about any nail art looks you have created with them!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
