I love the Zoya Pixie Dusts, and could resist getting a couple of the autumn 2013 range! Today I have Sunshine, a stunning blue glitter, and some autumn leaf decals.
This is one coat of Zoya Sunshine, with no topcoat.
Sunshine is a beautiful deep blue polish, opaque in one coat, with a lovely silver shimmer. Zoya describe this as a Van Gogh blue, which it really is! I can see Van Gogh's skies in here for sure.
Isn't it a beautiful blue?
I decided to use the leaves from the water decal set I reviewed here to make an autumnal look.
I do love water decals! They're so easy to use, and so effective.
To add these decals over a textured glitter, first I added a coat of Seche Vite, then the decals, and then another coat of Seche. The textured glitter did give a touch of texture to the decals, which also made some tiny holes in the decals in places - an effect that I wasn't expecting, but which I really like, as it makes the leaves look more natural to me - you can especially see this on the orange leaves on my ring finger.
Sunshine is just stunning with topcoat - the glitter and sparkle becomes so much deeper and more effective. I love Sunshine both ways though.
I'm really pleased with this look!
