Zoya Neeka design!

Third post on the first day? I know, this is getting out of hand! My awesome friend, Heidi, came over today for a nail day/kids play date, so of course we had to try out a new color that came in the mail.

She picked Zoya Neeka from the new Smoke and Mirrors collection. Here is a swatch of it in the sunlight so you can see the color better than my bottle picture.

So pretty!! Check out the sparkle! Next, of course we decided that it needed a design over it. She picked a design from Bundle Monster plate 222. Shown below are the things we used.

Base color: Zoya Neeka
Stamped color: Chine Glaze Passion
Dot color: Ulta Alter Ego
Stamp plate: BM-222
Dotting tool for a few teal dots
Konad stamp and scraper
Top Coat: Seche Vite
(If you are wondering what the tools are sitting on, it's an old flexible cutting board that is now my designated nail mat. I put this down to protect my table from acetone and also use it for polish blobs that I am dipping tools into.)

So we stamped the wave pattern with the gold polish, and used a small dotting tool to add some teal dots for a little more color. Topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite, and there you have it!

Hope you liked it. :) I just love this new color from Zoya and am so very glad I decided to order it! Thanks for reading!

  1. Beautiful!! Do you waste a lot of polish doing the stamping and dots and stuff?

  2. Thanks! Stamping does scrape off a good bit of polish but I don't usually use polishes that I would typically use on my whole nail. For example, the best polishes that stamp well are metallics(black and white, too) and I don't typically do my entire nail one metallic color. So even though I am wasting some by stamping with them, it's still less polish than doing a few nails.

    Doing dots requires much less polish and some people just dip their dotting tool in their bottle instead of making a blob like I do. It's very minimal, and for me, easier to work from the cutting mat and not dipping into the bottles.

    Thanks for your comment/question!! Keep them coming!

  3. Where can I get the items I need to stamp? I'm tired of admiring and want to start styling!

  4. This is the stamp plate set I got:

    and here are the stamper and scraper:

    Both from Amazon and I had no issues with delivery time :)

  5. I just ordered them both! Thanks!

  6. Yay! You are welcome! So excited for you!

  7. This is cute. I have a hard time picking the right stamping color combos, even though I don't have that many colors to stamp with.
