As I mentioned yesterday, after I did my swatches of the Zoya Beach and Zoya Surf colors, I did some playing around with them and my dotting tools, tape, and stamping stuff. The three pinks from the Beach side seemed to want to be together, so I did a base of Shelby (the lightest of the trio) and added dots with Lara (the darkest one) and Reagan (the medium one).
I put on Reagan, the purple-est polish from Beach, and added freehand tips with Carly, the purple from Surf.
On the theory that all blues and greens go together (I may have made that up), I put on Wednesday, waited for it to dry, then taped off diagonal lines and put Tracie on the non-taped portions of my tips.
Then I added Tracie dots on the Wednesday side and vice versa, which was fun to look at and also nicely distracted from the fact that my diagonals were not all the same angle.
I've had good luck stamping with Zoya shimmers before, so decided to try a bit of that. I did a base of Tracie then stamped with Meg for a tone-on-tone look. The design is from Red Angel plate 107.
I had to revisit pretty Carly, so I put on one coat of that plus a quick dry top coat, then stamped with Rory and Myrta using Salon Express plate 18.
Finally, in the department of I should have left well enough alone, I added dots with Shelby in the center of the stamped flowers. This sort of thing always looks good when mrsrexy does it, but I don't have her skill. I think that next time I need to make the dots smaller and a different color; Arizona probably would have been a fine accent.
If you've been thinking about getting some Zoya and are in the continental U.S., this weekend would be a great time to order, as the Zoya Earth Day Promo is back again. This year it's April 21 and 22, and you can get Zoya polish for 50% off and exchange old polishes you no longer want (Zoya will dispose of them in a proper manner). Some restrictions apply; follow the link to see all the details.
