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

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.
