The zoya that started it all...

Back in October 2009, I was searching for a cute Halloween manicure idea, when I stumbled on my first Nail Polish Blog, that was what started it all.  The first nail polish I saw that caught my eye was Zoya "Yummy" from their Candy Summer 2007 collection.

I never heard of Zoya before that time,  and I was so curious and so in love with this color. After that I was so overwhelmed with all the blogs and colors I had discovered that poor "Yummy" kept creeping lower, and lower on my list of lemmings...until recently.

I did a huge haul from Zoya and I HAD to add this :) Here it is after almost 2 years..

Zoya "Yummy"
2 coats




























It's a gorgeous robyn's egg blue creme, that has a milky dusty quality, so creamy and gorgeous!















I don't know what it is, but I LOVE Zoya cremes!!!! They are always so bright and rich and fun! I love them! Usually when I think of cremes, I think old and boring, but when they are in bright, young, candy colors, I go gaga...LOL :)

So of course after 2 days I did not have the heart to remove this beauty so I added some design to the accent finger.





























Cute...isn't it?  I added big dots, with my dotting tool using Dr. Remedy's "Vigor", and then the smaller dots using a smaller dotting tool using China Glaze "For Audrey" :), and topped them off using Poshe.
Pin It!

These are cute love the dots I like Yummy but scared to get because it might be dupes of others in my collection

@skyla91- That is quite possible, it is very close Sally Hansen "Pacific Blue", I need to compare the 2. Thanks for commenting :)

I love this post about your blog's beginnings. Fabulous. And the blue, like all blue I see you wear, looks incredible on you. This is a must for every nail polish stash - so vibrant and eye catching. :)

I feel the same way about Zoya cremes! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I always use anchor, color armor...
topped with SV. ...they are just so shiny!

And now it's on my lemmings list.
