Zoya Work-Worthy Gradient

It's always tough to come up with office-friendly nail art. Plus, let's face it...it's a little boring. If I'm posing for nail art pics on a work night, generally I swipe the mani right off and slap on a neutral shade. But alas, the work mani section of the site is languishing. So I went to my Zoya rack and scanned for possibilities. Aha...Addison, Pandora and Farah were sitting there side-by-side!

I started with two coats of Zoya Farah, a nude cream. After it dried, I applied Zoya Pandora, a pinky nude cream, to a makeup sponge and dabbed it on to the top two-thirds of each nail. Finally, I applied Zoya Addison, a light dusty mauve, to a new sponge and dabbed it on the tips.

I had a hard time capturing this mani on camera. It's like mannequin hands...with a twist! The photo below was taken in direct sunlight. You can see just how subtle the effect is...very low key, but awesome up close. I wore this to work for three straight days!

And for your entertainment...if you follow me on Facebook then you've seen Serafina, the cat. She's a diva and she's always photobombing my shots. Typically I don't shoot pics in sunlight (it's just too difficult to time manis around daylight). But since I had this one on for a few days, I was able to catch some rays. Serafina couldn't be bothered with my blog. She thought that if I was crouched near the floor, in the sun, and had my hand out that clearly I was trying to pet her! She would NOT leave me alone. Although I must admit, her technique has merit (I did, in fact, pet her). I wonder if I could make that work for me?
