Crosshatched green and pink with a kissy accent

Zoya Kissy that is. Last post you saw my first epic birthday nail mail tribute with Zoya Noel and I'm back with Zoya Kissy and China Glaze Gaga for Green. Seeing those two next to each other made me instantly aware of the fact they were happening together in a manicure.
 First I tried to layer Zoya Kissy over ChG Gaga for Green and it was so messy looking due to how dense the glitter in Kissy is. So I wiped it off and started over bringing in OPI Love is a Racket with some striping tape to make a crosshatch and allowing Kissy to shine as an accent nail:
It builds quickly and dries so quickly! I seriously see myself wearing this one on it's own it has so much to offer.
A very fun and funky manicure. I just love the colors together! In the birthday group I'm in one of the gal's said it reminded her of ornaments - it does have that feel doesn't it? Have a great day!

    1. Oooh I just realized I could stamp ornaments and kind of "unwrap" one of the nails for a gift and do up a Christmas manicure!!

    1. Isn't it amazing?! Not nearly as amazing as your manicures though ;) Especially that falling leaves one!

    1. I truly didn't mean it to but I think it has become such! As a result I think I need the other two Zoya hairy glitters so I can do more "ornament" manicures.

    1. Break it out and have a blast - such a pain in the rump but the results are one the best wow factors on a manicure in my opinion.
