Zoya Natty

I have seriously neglected the occupational mani area of this blog (WORK). My original intent was to chronicle plain old work appropriate manis in addition to fancy schmancy nail art (PLAY) and new polish swatches (POLISH). But work appropriate isn't much fun. I'm embarrassed to admit this... but lately I've been going to bed with bare nails.  On my way out the door in the morning, I stand at the kitchen island wearing my coat and quickly slap on one thick coat of Zoya Farah or Pandora and one coat of Seche Vite. GASP! Check the rulebook, folks, but I don't think that even qualifies as a mani! But it gets worse - next I get into my car and put my seatbelt on like I've lost full use of both of my arms (to protect the wet nails, of course) and drive into work. My family offered to take a picture of this ritual for me to include in this blog post and I decided I didn't want to ruin what little wonder and mystery may be out there!

So I'm trying to turn over a new leaf.  Last night I applied today's work polish, Zoya Natty, in advance, and I am literally wearing it this very minute. (Unless, of course, you don't read this until tomorrow and by then it will be long gone.)

Zoya Natty

Natty is a favorite of mine. It was released as part of Zoya's Fall 2012 Designer Collection. It's a cool, dusty blue cream; dark, but not goth. Muted enough for work. Cool enough for a night out. Nice formula. Really quite shiny even before topcoat.

After wearing neutrals during the day so much, it's nice to look down at my hands and see some super shiny color!

  4. I'd have to agree with you on the color & of course the Zoya brand is one of my fav's. I hate not wearing any nail polish on my nails but when going to work, it has to be darker and more neutral colors, so not to bring attention to me & evade a write up. If it was me I'd ear the most brightest & loud colored nail polish, just because that's me. But, since I like my job, I'll continue to skirt the line as long as I can get away with it. Love the color, beautiful!

  5. I really like this colour. Almost like a 'lighter and brighter' version of Essie's Bobbing for Baubles :D

  6. I love that color! In fact, I just picked this up yesterday at ULTA. I love how it looks on you and can't wait to see how it looks on me. It's such a rich blue-gray and I loved it in the bottle, but now seeing it swatched, I am soo happy that I picked Natty up. I have fair skin and I love how it looks on you! Your nails are very pretty.
