Stash Swatch Initiative: Zoya Rose

Hello again!!

Zoya Rose. Indoors, artificial light, no flash.
Today I have the subtle Zoya Rose from the Spa Essentials Collection for you.

Zoya Rose. Indoors, artificial light, with flash.
Rose is a sheer, milky nude with subtle green shimmer. This is a polish meant for use in a french manicure, I believe, since it would take quite a few more coats to get it to opacity alone. It's an extremely subtle effect and gives the look that your natural nails are perfect and are slightly pearly. I have used this for a french manicure before, and I thought it was the perfect base. While polishes like this are nothing exciting to talk about, they're certainly necessary and have a beauty all their own. My favorite way to wear this with a french tip so far has been to add a topcoat of INM's Northern Lights for a little extra oomph.

Swatches today are a base of Sally Hansen Nail Protix, three of Rose, and a topcoat of Orly Sec n' Dry. The formula was great, as usual with Zoya.

As I've said before: I bought my bottle from Zoya's website. They offer a lot of great deals, especially if you're plugged into their social networking, so like them on Facebook! They also offer deals to their existing customers (those who have an account set up at their website) on occasion. If you don't have an account and want one, you're welcome to use this link to make a new account. It's my "Share the Love" link, which if you do sign up by using it, I'll get points to use towards more deals on polish and, as a first time customer, you'll get a free bottle of polish when you order! Awesome! My link takes you to the seasonal collections page; you can create a new account by using the link at the top of that page that says "Create An Account". Once your account is set up, if you go to "My Account" then click "My Coupon Codes" you'll see the code for a free bottle of polish. I believe you have to order more items to use it, so it's not a total freebie.

I've got a special post for a little later on today... so more very soon!! ^_^
