I plan on starting to paint my nails at some point later this week once we're done with the major unpacking and settling in. But the other reason I haven't posted this mani, was because I couldn't remember the name of the Pure Ice polish I used as undies. And would never think to go look, until I would sit down and blog.
But finally, without further ado, I present Zoya Aurora! Aurora is officially in my Top 5 favorite polishes I own. Not that I know what those five are necessarily, but I am in love!
I mean, look at that amazing holo goodness! Just gorgeous! I do think from using Pure Ice No Means No as undies, lended a brighter violet hue to Aurora than it generally has, compared to what I've seen in other folks' swatches. I simply did not want to waste a bunch of polish having to build it up, so I decided to layer it.
The wear-time on this mani was also quite long. If I remember correctly, I took these pictures after either day 2 or 3. And anytime I can get three days out of a mani, I'm sold!
I started with two coats of Pure Ice No Means No, followed by one coat of Aurora. The formula on both polishes was great, but as with every other Zoya I have tried, the formula on Aurora was AMAZING. I can't wait to use this polish again. I will use it again soon since I'm blogging about it. :)
Sorry that this post is so picture heavy, but I couldn't stand to cut down the number of pictures any more than I already had. I had to include the above to shots, in focus and out of focus to really show you how truely holographic Aurora really is. I think I really may be a bigger fan of a scattered holo, more so than a linear holo. Not that I have ever had the opportunity to try any linears. I do still really love the Color Club Halo Hues polishes...maybe someday I will get a few.
