[CLOSED] JOBY NAIL ART: Glitter Nail Art Decal Review

Pin It
Joby Nail Art Glitter Collection decals in Peace

Today I have some nail art decals to review from Joby Nail Art! I've used these a dozen times or so in manicures and pedicures. These are my favorite decals so I was happy to review their new Glitter Collection on my blog!

I received the Peace themed decals. I decided to do a tie dye design to compliment their hippie vibe! I used this tutorial by Nailuminium to give me an idea of how to execute it.

I tried to apply the decals directly over my nail art, but it drowned out the decals. I fixed this by adding splashes of white to kind of "frame" them:

These decals are my favorite because they are the ones that lay the flattest on the nail that I've ever encountered (next to water slide decals that is). I also like them because they have a good variety of designs to offer! All you need is a pair of tweezers to pick them off the sheet and place them where you want them. Of course, you need to top coat them to keep them shiny and in place :]

LUCKY FOR YOUUUU Joby sent me an extra set of summery themed decals to giveaway!


The Lace & Lacquer's Joby Nail Art Decal Giveaway is open March 19th until March 23rd 2014 11:59 PM EST. This giveaway is sponsored by Joby Nail Art and hosted/shipped by Lace & Lacquers. The giveaway is open to everyone who is 18 years and older (or with parents' permission) worldwide. Click here for the full rules.

ZOYA: Spring 2014 Awaken Collection - Monet Special Effects Glitter Topper

Pin It
Zoya Awaken Collection Special Effects Topper, Monet

Today I have for you the glitter topper from the Zoya Awaken Collection, Monet! Monet is a "multi-colored, cellophane holographic special effect topper". I wouldn't quite call it holographic there, m'dear Zoya lol, it's more iridescent if anything.

Zoya Monet
Zoya Monet over (L->R) Dot, Cole, Brooklyn, Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Zoya Monet over (L->R)Dillon, Rebel, Hudson and Sinful Colors Black on Black
Top: Zoya Monet over Sinful Colors Black on Black
Bottom: Zoya Monet over Rebel

I chose to layer Monet over colors from the Awaken Collection, check out my swatches here, along with your basic black and white creme polishes. I think this topper looks great with almost any color! I'm not a fan of it over Zoya Brooklyn, the foily yellow, but I like the other color combos :] They kinda remind me of Easter haha. If you realllllly want it to POP, stick it over a dark color for maximum glitterage payoff.

I did 2 coats of Monet over the colors listed in the captions above. I didn't have any issues with application, it was smooth and applied nicely. Dry time was without issues. Maybe it's just me but I kind of wish there was more glitter per coat ;]
