Zoya Kelly

There was so much hype about this polish in 2010, that I just had to try it. That's right, I'm late at jumping on the bandwagon, but that's how I am. I won't just get something to get it, I have to want to try it. So I finally tried Zoya Kelly for the 1st time today. For those of you who have not seen it swatched/talked about before, it is a deep bluish gray. Very sophisticated, gorgeous color. I have to admit it, I love how it looks... maybe I should follow the trend more next time ;)

The formula on this one is amazing. It applied like a dream, no dragging, not streaking. Two coats to get it to be fully opaque and actually darker than the bottle color. These photos are after two coats plus a top coat.

Looking at the light-box photos made me think that it would look amazing matted... need to get a matte top coat stat!!! :)

I did decide to accent it with some stamped flowers using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Gunmetal. I used plate M71 from the Born Pretty Store. After all, I do need a lot more practice stamping before my Bundle Monster plates arrive. So excited :D

Here is how lovely Kelly looks outside (overcast)...

So do you follow the trend every time or on your own time?
