Happy Independence Day brought to you by Zoya

Happy Independence Day to those who celebrate!  Today I have a full Zoya mani for you.  Read on for more pics and info!

Zoya Independence Day Mani

Red, white and blue.  The colors of America.  Since no one does reds better than Zoya, I was inspired by the holiday to pull out a brand new polish from Zoya's newest Paradise Sun collection called Aphrodite.

Aphrodite is described by Zoya as "a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multihued flash..."  It is truly nothing short of gorgeous.  You'll see a macro shot of Aphrodite later in this post; I'm just warning you now, you will want this polish in your collection!

To round out this mani, I used Zoya Cosmo, which is a silver Magical Pixie Dust with a smattering of holographic glitter throughout.  It is like having a disco ball on your fingers!  I also used Zoya Dream, which truly is the most dreamy blue ever.  It has holographic microparticles in a jelly royal blue base that give it a pop of something extra.

Backing things up for just a minute... You see my Cindy hand above?  That darn middle finger still isn't fairing very well.  And that index finger is taking it's good ol' time growing back.  Anyway, I decided to try a different mix of base coats in hopes that my dear Cindy hand would approve.  We shall see.  I used a coat of Essie Grow Stronger basecoat topped with a coat of OPI Nail Envy.

I created the negative space portion of this mani using Glam My Mani single chevron nail vinyls.  I painted the blue and the red and while they were still wet I pulled the vinyls off.  I dabbed some topcoat on the blue part and affixed holographic star studs.  Then I topped everything with KBShimmer Clearly On Top quick dry topcoat.

And some macro goodness for you!  Aphrodite, Cosmo, then Dream for your viewing pleasure.  Look at that depth!
