Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying safe and try to stay healthy as well. I know that this year has started off not so well and the past few weeks have been scary, that's why I decided to hop on the blog and post a cute koala bear care nail design for all of you, just to kind of get you mind off of what is happening even just for a little bit.

Here are the polishes and nail art tools used to create this cute koala nail design: 

 

Base and top coat- as always, CND Stickey Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip top coat.

Nail polish- Zoya- Lillian.

Arcylic paint- White, black, green, yellow, and brown. 
Used black and white to make two shades of grey, and used a darker green and yellow to make a lighter green.

Nail art brushes- Thin detail brush and stripping brush.

A small cup of water to clean off your nail art brushes.

Apply base coat.

Let that dry.

Polish all of your nails with a light blue polish.

Let that dry as well.  

First we will start off with the eucalyptus leaves that going on all four nails. Starting with the index nail and going to the middle and ring finger nail. Make a long branch across those three nails, then make some more smaller branches from the larger one. 

Then with two different greens, a light and a darker green, make some very small leaves coming from those smaller branches and some on the larger branch as well.

For the pink finger nail we will make four branches from all four coroners of the nail. On each corner make a long branch and then two shorter ones. Then make some leaves on each branch.

Lastly on to the Koala on the thumb nail. First make sure you have a lest two shades of grey, a light and darker grey. Then make a large circle for your koala's head, then two ears (use the lighter grey.) Then make his body, then with a darker shade of grey make two arms and two legs. 

With that same darker grey take your stripper brush and make your koala's ears look fuzzy, by making small lines very close to each other to make his ears fuzzy looking. 

Now on to the koala's face, make two oval for his eyes and a side ways oval for his nose and then two curved lines for his smile. 

For some for details, we will add some branches and leaves. Make a long thick line between your koala's arms and legs, then a thin line that is coming from his ear. Then add two leaves in his paws and then two more near the bottom the branch near the cuticle. Also add some leaves near his ear as well.

For the nail art first we will be creating clouds with a Q- tip/ cotton swab, this helps to make the clouds look fluffy. Take your Q- tip and dip it into just a little watered down white paint, then dab it on to the nail to make it look like clouds, do this on random parts of the nail (I tried to focus the clouds near the tip, sides and cuticles), and make sure to leave some blue showing for the night sky. 

For the stars take your sliver stripping polish, and just dab some dots on the nail for some smaller stars. Then add a few larger dots as well for some big stars, on the larger dots add two lines to add more detail. For the larger stars I just add a few on the nails, one on the middle finger nail and three on the thumb nail.

Lastly we will make the moon in the sky on the ring finger. First take your detail brush with white paint on it, make a circle kind of near the cuticle. Then take some grey paint and make a few lines on the moon a kind of blend them in with the white so they show up a little bit.

Starting with the thumb nail, first make a large heart near the left side of your nail.

Then make some random swirls coming from the heart, I did three from the top and one from the bottom. Then from those swirls create more. (I know that is a weird way to describe how to do that part, but I was not to sure how to describe that part.) 

Then from those swirls make a few hearts, I made four in different spots.

For the index and middle finger nail designs, these two are the same just on opposite sides.

On the index nail make a heart on the right side of the nail, then make a swirl on both sides, on the top of the heart make three curved lines at the top, then make a few dots a well. You can also outline the heart as well.

For the middle finger nail repeat the same steps just on the left side.

Zoya Haul- Twinkling Winter/ Holiday 2019 Collection

Hello everyone! Today we have a long over due review that we will be going over, the Zoya Twinkling Winter/ Holiday collection from 2019. It is still winter so I thought I would sill share some of the polishes from this collection with all of you. As with most nail polish collections I rarely will purcahse the whole collection, in the case of this collection I purchased four of the twelve polishes, and one not from the collection.

Zoya Alessia

Alessia is a icy blue metallic polish with some silver shimmer in it. This polish was fully opaque for me in two coats.

I really enjoined Alessia, blue is my favorite color so really any blue I am going to like. This polish wore really well, all Zoya polishes that I have prchased have no matter what color they are. 

This shimmer blue is great for winter and the holidays or really anytime of year. 

 Zoya Jen

Next we have Jen, this is a dark royal/ sapphire shimmery blue polish. This polish was also opaque for me in two coats.

I also really enjoyed Jen as well because of this once again being a blue polish. This polish is once again great for winter or anytime of the year. 


Zoya Jett, matte and glossy

This polish I unfortunately don't have photos of this on my nails, I did take some photos of this on my nails, but I accidentally deleted the photos off of my SD card. So all of have is photos of the polish on a swatch wheel.

Anyways Jett is a dark silver matte polish that has shard glitter pieces in it. This polish again was opqaue in two coats.

As for Jett I didn't really care for this polish because of it having the matte finish to it and the glitter in it kind of made it thick. I did wear this on my nails with a glossy top coat and it made it a little bit better. I personally would have liked this more if the finish was glossy coming out of the bottle.

Kaede is a gold glitter topper that has metallic gold fleck in it along with holographic shard glitters. I wore this as a topper over Ziv, I only applied one coat of this polish.

I also enjoyed Kaede as well, this polish was very pretty, although it might actually look better over a black polish. This polish is really good for the holiday's.

I did not wear this on it own, I did apply is to a swatch wheel in three coat, this polish just seems better as a topper because even in three coats it was still a little patchy.

Lastly we have Ziv, this polish was not a part of thier holiday/ winter colection, this was just a polish that I wanted to get.

Anyways Ziv is a yellow toned gold with silver and a little bit draker gold glitter throught out the polish. This polsih did take me three coats to be opqaue, it was a little on the sheer side.

I also like Ziv as well, the only thing was this polish was a little sheer, but still looked very pretty. 

 All of these polsihes can be found on the Zoya website ad retail for $10 each.

They also have four trios that reatil for $30.
Along with two sets (Sampler A and B) for $60.



Hope all of you enjoied this review, even though it is a little late.

See you next time for more polish fun!
