Nails I Love - Zoya JACY & Deborah Lippmann HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Nails I Love

ZOYA – Jacy & DEBORAH LIPPMANN Happy Birthday

Hey girlies J

Sooooo it was my birthday this week and I decided that was enough of a half-excuse to buy DL’s lustful Happy Birthday.  And then someone also bought me it as a present – yay – so I can now make official Candy Shop and Forget You dupes J

I thought long and hard about what to wear her over, and after seeing a lot of pink in the blogosphere this last week, decided to go for the only Zoya Pulse Goddess I didn’t swatch last week – Jacy.

You can just about see the glass flecks if you can see past the "colouring outside the lines" lol - I hadn't cleaned up yet!

Jacy is a powerhouse.  She is ridicloulously complex and deep, and the photos really are lame in comparison to how she looks in person.  A deep raspberry magenta with flashes of blue and fuchsia shimmer, Jacy *also* rocks the glass flecks.  Teeny tiny ones.  Teeny tiny bright pink ones.  Sooooo pretty.  So flipping hard to photograph.  The only photo that comes close is one under bright light – the flecks were almost impossible to see in natural light, but I felt so smug knowing they were there J

I then layered the Happy Birthday on and – holy moly!  I was not prepared for quite how much glitterness was going to come out of that bottle!  We’re all so used to stroking a glitter on and having it sparse itself out across the nail, but this baby, I don’t know if it was breeding in the brush but it just kept on coming lol.   (Which is good.  We moan about the price of DL but I reckon this baby would last double due to the sheer abundance of glitter in there, making her a more reasonable price per use.)

A bit too much in my opinion.  I felt they were over blingy, and I will definitely use less next time.

And then I did something ….. amazing!  I crackled them.  Oh my sweet polishy goodness.  Suddenly, Happy Birthday looks like a firework, her colourful brightness peaking through the night sky.  Amazing!  So so happy with this look.

Look, I still can’t stop looking at it.

And more.  And more lol.

I get sooooooo excited, far more than other bloggers!  Good or bad, I'm not sure ha ha.

Have fun J

Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
