Zoya Aurora

Hello Ninjas!

Sorry about the day late posts, I got really sick starting on Friday and I'm just now feeling more human.  With my fever finally broken, I figured I'd take the time to do the final post I had planned for holo week!

Today's manicure is a scattered holo from Zoya's Ornate collection, Aurora. I have always loved the name Aurora and all of the neat things the name reminds me of: the Northern Lights, Sleeping Beauty, and the X-men Storm. Zoya describes Aurora as, "a full coverage, medium sugarplum purple flecked with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter." Two very smooth coats made this an easy opaque manicure that lasted 4 days (2 more than I usually wait to change a polish) without chipping.

I love how vivid the blue on this one is that it actually blew out the blue on my camera.


  1. wow, this looks brilliant on your nails.. I have applied Essie's Mamba, but i m not sure what top coat is good for nails..i have never used one before.. which one would you recommend the best?
    Thanks - Lavy

  2. Lavy: I use Seche Vite which you can find at places like Ulta and CVS. I've also used Cult Nails Wicked Fast with great success as well as Orly Sec'n'dry.
