First post! And Nails of the Day

I figured I'd keep my first post pretty simple with a nails of the day post.  I paint my nails about every other day, more frequently if I'm working.  Other than that, I don't do a lot as far as maintenance.  I use hand cream at night and whenever else I need it and/or think about it.  My favorites are  Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream (drugstore.com currently has a coupon for $1 off - final price is $3.49 for 2 oz.) and Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve ($20 for 5 oz.).

I have a love affair with deep, dark, and/or opaque nail polishes.  Visible nail line annoys the heck out of me.  That said, today's "nail of the day" is Zoya Ibiza.  It is a beautiful deep indigo blue with shimmer.  The shimmer isn't very prominent, especially inside (F for me for taking nail pics inside - but its really cold, and it gets dark at like 4:30).  Indoors it looks very dark, but you can see how the blue flashes in the pictures.  Loveeee. I almost got away with one coat today, but I always do two out of habit, and I think it usually looks better.  I used Orly Bonder for my base coat, and Lippmann Collection Addicted to Speed for my top coat.


  1. I totally ordered this. I'm excited, I haven't worn dark blue nails in years and it's time to start again! Ahhhhhhhh sooooo pretty!

    I'm currently wearing Veruschuka...I can never remember the spelling but the matte green. It's absolutely gorgeous. I almost didn't get it but I'm glad I did!

    ahhhhhhh I want ibiza nowwwwwwwwwwww! :)

  2. That green is gorgeous, I think I will have to own it some day, but alas...today is not that day. Can't wait til you get it - let me know what you think!

  3. I love Ibiza! It's one of my fave colors :D
