Creative musings in bright colors


I have spent two weeks trying to figure out how to use Yuna by Zoya to her best advantage, and also how to try using my nail art foils again. This evening, those ideas came together into MAGIC. And then I added purple (it was that or a deep plum, and I just liked the contrast better this way). It all worked! I’m actually kinda surprised that this turned into not-a-fail.


The only bit of sad here is that even with my water-based top coat, the awesome holographic design on the foils crinkled a bit at the end. I have a few shots before I added top coat, but not many. Either way, it does look kinda cool!



I also dug up my giant holo studs from the Born Pretty Store that I was sent eons ago, and made up some weird design (looks a bit like the radioactivity symbol) on my other nails. But really look! FOIL! I might almost be willing to try a whole-nail design next. Maybe. If I’m feeling brave.



~ Grey: Zoya – Yuna
~ Purple: L’oreal – Royalty Reinvented
~ Silver (under the holo): Revlon – Metallic


Hope you enjoyed! You can find the holographic studs that I used here at the Born Pretty Store, and if you want them use my 10% off code LY5X31!

  1. Those silvery holo glittery parts are like “Wow, how’d you do that!?”

  2. Wow! If you hang out your “n/a shingle,” you’ll be rich!! Great look and perfect execution!

  3. Sorry it crinkled. It looks gorgeous though!
