Zoya, Catrice and China Glaze



Zoya, Catrice and China Glaze
- in a Christmassy mani :) (Not late, but very early, haha!)

I started out with Zoya’s Giovanna, a lovely green shimmer. It’s a two coater and the drying time is good. I had little “lumps” in it – that’s unusual for a Zoya, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it before.

My picture doesn’t really do it justice – sorry little Giovanna. Trust me when I say it’s beautiful!


Then I added glittah! I used a green/holo bar glitter polish from Catrice called “Feathery Fact”. It’s an easy to work with glitter, with a relatively slow drying time. It gives quite an interesting effect though:


Last step was to add stripes. I used China Glaze’s “Define Good”, which I’ve showed you yesterday. It’s such a lovely cranberry red.

Here’s the final mani, including a layer of topcoat:



And a flash picture for you:


The pretties: 

I didn’t do many Christmassy manis last year, but this one reminds me a lot of Christmas. I know that bar glitters are a hit or miss for many people, so do you like it?
