Ziv, Blaze and Valentines

Since i'm already in the spirit of V-Day, I decided to do a sparkly Valentines mani. For this one I took Zoya Ziv and Blaze, both from the glorious Ornate Collection of Winter 2012. They are both gorgeous polishes, very sparkly and very festive. I suppose they could make a perfect Christmas mani, but they work so perfectly together for Valentines just as well!

So I started with two coats of Zoya Ziv, a stunning warm gold with a somewhat foil finish and lot's of golden glitter or flakies inside for added depth. Formula is perfection. Great consistency, completely self leveling and  short drying time.

I then added the tips and a little heart using Zoya Blaze, a beautiful Cranberry red filled with holographic little flakies that show mostly red, pink and purple but have the entire rainbow within them too! Again - a dreamy formula and a great drying time. Opacity is also achieved mostly in two coats.
