Gilded Roses on Zoya India

Sadly, I have a head cold and it is wiping me out. I still took the time to do my nails lol – seriously, if I was sick and had to look at chipping and tip wear, I’d cry. So a fresh mani is medicine for my soul! I did choose to do something simple, however, just to make sure I wasn’t straining over my nails for several hours!

I started out with 1 coat (yes, 1!) of Zoya India, which is a deep red filled to the brim with gold microglitter. Once dry, I stamped over it with Essie – Good as Gold. I love this rose stamp, but kind of wish I had chosen a finer stamp so more of India would shine through! It is a super gorgeous polish!

Overall, I like this mani pretty well, but I need to wear India again without so much embellishment, just to show off how gorgeous it is. I’m also thinking it will look really awesome for holiday manis when paired with Zoya – Logan.
