Zoya Ornate Collection: Ziv Nail Polish Plus Some Layering

Here's one more from Zoya's new "Ornate" holiday collection- "Ziv" is a gold metallic nail polish with a flecky type finish. I used 2 layers here:



SO, yesterday I saw my friend Eugenia's post about some gorgeous up and coming A England polishes. One of them is a gold base with rose colored glitter mixed in. I knew I needed to at least attempt a sad imitation of the beauty she showed me to tide me over until I could get my hands on the real deal.  I did one coat of Essie "A Cut Above" on top of Ziv:




 


OK. So it's nothing like the A England "She Walks In Beauty" that I am clamoring over. Still gorg, but I will have to get my hand on the real McCoy ASAP!
What do you think of Ziv? (In case you missed it, see 'Blaze' here , also from the Ornate Collection)

    1. Thanks Tiffany! I love when I see something that inspires me to try something I normally wouldn't- I don't think I would've come up with this combo had I not seen the a England post :)

  2. Ugh, I hate you and how you pull off golds and yellow-leaning nudes so well. Golds always look cheap on me because they contrast so much with my cooler-toned skin. Jealoussss.

    1. Bhahahahaha....I love you ;) I'm jealous of your cooler skintone- I always have a hell of a time finding foundation that looks right on me because I am super pale AND yellow at the same time...most foundations seem to be too neutral or pink for me, so you've got *that* :)

  5. What a neat combination--I think I actually like it better than the a England! I just picked up Ziv, and I'm looking forward to trying it too. So many golds are much more yellow than I like to wear, but this looks like it has just enough of a champagne lean for me to really like it. ;)

    1. I can't wait to see Ziv on you! I only ordered it because I had Zoya credit burning a hole in my pocket...I'm glad I did!

  6. I think this combo looks fantastic. I just can't wear gold...I feel like Mr. T with his ghetto gold.

  7. WOW Maribeth! I think your layering combo is a dead-on ringer for a-england's 'She Walks in Beauty'...what a fabulous job (as always!!) PS: thanks for the shout-out, my friend! xx
