Blombre

Aka the blue ombre! Blombre! …right. I am a sucker for blue polishes, and I was lacking quite a few in the darker range of my collection, so I placed an order from Zoya for their “we swear our polishes won’t ruin your fingernails” sale last month. Among the polishes I got were three new blues. About that time, I also saw bulleuw‘s beautiful 31 Day Challenge post with a blue ombre and decided to try it!

So, we have two new polishes here, but I am not giving you a full review (except to say that I love them and they were both one-coaters). I set up a blue ombre using 4/5 Zoya polishes (because I could…although it turns out I don’t have a light blue? Maybe that’s next on my shopping list!) and then added wavy border using vinyls from Lady Queen Beauty.

Unlike the full-nail patterned vinyls from the Born Pretty Store, these one are individual strips that you place, and are actually really easy to use (the remind me of my zig-zag ones from KBShimmer which I love). They come in a set and they’re white. I can’t wait to do a full mani with them!

Yes, the essie (thumb) has shimmer and Ibiza (pinky) is a murky metallic, but I don’t have ALL the Zoya cremes! That being said, this most recent sale was prompted by Mentality’s total failure to make safe polish…yet, Mentality sells a lot of mattes, neons, and holos (those at least were the ones I wanted replaced) and Zoya does not have any corresponding colors! I did by the green matte to replace the one I had to get rid of, but I really want a dark blue and a dark purple…oh well! I guess I’ll have to wait for the holiday polishes to be released.
