Zoya: Julie

Good morning beautiful readers. I hope you're all doing well!

Today I have a polish from Zoya's Lovely Collection, this one is called Julie (finally, a normal name!). This is a soft wisteria purple metallic. It's actually pretty unique in my collection in terms of color.  I think what makes it so different from the 1000 other purples I own is that metallic element. It's quite pretty, almost icy looking. In bright sunlight that metallic sheen is barely visible but in interior lighting it's more prominent. 

I used two coats for the opacity shown but I think this one needs three. I think you'll be able to see from the photos that two just doesn't cut it. There's a bit of VNL with two and some balding. Go with three and I think you'll do just fine with this one.

So what do you think of Julie

Random thoughts for the day: 
  • It's soooo cold out in Connecticut I can't take it. 
  • I am excited for dinner tonight as I have Picadillo from Skinny Taste simmering in the crock pot. Have you checked out Skinny Taste? That blog is amazing. Everything I have made has been just wonderful.
  • Speaking of food blogs, a friend of mine, Kristen, just started one. Check it out at www.smashed-garlic.com she's really talented at both cooking and writing. You won't be disappointed.
