Wow, busy busy week on my end! Are you guys feeling that holiday gear-up already, too? Besides more errands than usual (several trips to the DMV last week, had to take my car in to get looked at today, a broken stove yesterday...), fall reorganization and cleaning in anticipation of holiday guests, and the usual work and household duties, I have felt like I've been "falling" behind! I have to admit, it feels good to get some things reorganized and looking better around the house, but it's been at the expense of my social life, leisure time, and-- you guessed it-- my blog! I miss you guys! What have you all been up to? Am I the only one with errands and chores piling up?
Anyway, I've got another Nail of the Day to show you guys. This one is a pretty Zoya fall color, Anastasia. It's a deep plum-mauve with threads of gold shimmer that definitely make an impact on the nail; this isn't the sort of shimmer that shines in the bottle and then disappears on the nail! Zoya describes this as nearly opaque, and I would concur; I used two coats and got perfectly opaque, even coverage. This is an easy one to work with!
Summary: I'd recommend this color in a heartbeat! It's gorgeous, and a good fall or holiday color if you don't want to use traditional holiday colors; the amazing gold shimmer against the dusty jewel tone background make it feel festive, if not over the top. It was a dream to work with, too.
Do any of you have this color? What do you think of it? Do you have any non-traditional "festive" nail polishes you pull out around this time of year? I have a few champagne shimmers I'll probably start rotating into my lineup!
