First Try-Out Zoya Kristen

This is just the first try-out of Zoya Kristen from the Feel collection. I couldn't make any pictures during the day since it was gloomy the past few days. So this is the best one I've got:
Kristen is a light blue-grey creme, which is a beautiful wintery colour. Now I understand what other nail polish bloggers mean by 'it applies like butter'. I can't believe I waited so long to try Zoya polishes, but it's not too late right? The application was indeed nice and easy. Two coats were layered and I added the BM 219 french tip design with Konad special stamping polish in white.

I should practice more with the french tip designs, because I still have trouble with stamping them on the right place on the nails. And this design didn't like me at all, it smudged like crazy. The design smudged already when I picked it up from the plate, any suggestions for this problem?

Have a great one!

Kiss You Goodnight...

Here is a collaboration of Disney and H&M. They bring us a polish that is suitable for festive occasions (and any other random day of course). The cover of this lovely bottle catches a popular couple kissing eachother. It contains 0.5 fl.oz. or 14ml, which is the same as an OPI bottle.
Kiss Goodnight is a dark grey (charcoal)/ black polish filled with silver shimmer and green and purple microglitters. The formula was easy to work with and two coats were needed to reach opacity. The amazing green/purple microglitters add something extra to the charcoal + silver shimmer combination. I hoped they would come out more but unfortunately they are only noticeable under sunlight or spotlights =]
Here are some close-ups, the one on the right shows the awesome green and purple mircoglitters.
Have a great one!
