Beginning Normal Life Again with Zoya - America

Now that the 31 Day Nail Challenge is over, it is actually a bit of a relief to just paint my nails normally and not have to be inspired by anything in particular! The challenge was fun, but I feel like I need to go back to basics for a little while before I dive into back-breaking nail art again!

This Zoya – America which I picked up from Vancouver-based Escents Aromatherapy during one of their sales from the summer and boy am I glad I did! Here I have shown two easy coats before topcoat so you can see just how glossy and juicy this colour is! This is a fantastic bright red which I thought was a great way to start my dive back into “normal” nails again.

I’ve been working on some product reviews too that I can’t wait to get to as well as some Fall polishes that I have not had a chance to swatch yet! Stay tuned!

  1. lol it's kind of a relief to just be able to paint your nails without thinking too much about it! I painted my nails today, just a plain color, and it felt so nice!
    I can't wait to see what you have coming!
    This polish look lovely and your nails look incredible as always!

  4. You definitely deserve a break from "inspired" nail looks!! This colour is gorgeous--but I can't believe the challenge is over :/ Such a staple in my blogger subscription box!

  9. "Juicy" is the right word to describe that polish! It's a fun colour.

  10. I love red nails - this is very much a juicy red!

    I can't commit to a challenge like that, I like painting my nails to suit my mood, so challenges just don't work for me :P But you guys did so well!
