Christmas With Charity

Finally, I made my last appearance at work for this year! Time to decorate the house for Christmas, buy the last gifts and most of all, time to relax with the family! (and a bottle of nail polish..)

Last week's notw was Zoya Charity.

I had a very busy work week that didn't end until 08.00 this morning. This polish worked with me all the way, from last saturday, 11 whole days of wear. Today I'm taking it of because I can't wait to paint my nails in a brighter colour, but there is hardly any tip wear and not a single chip. Fantastic!

The colour is a chameleon that I still don't really know how to describe. Is it a mauve? Is it a taupe? Does it shimmer?

In cloudy daylight or office light, it looks like a very shiny mauve creme, at least on my fingers. In low lamp light it's more like a light brown or taupe. There is a gold shimmer that will surprise you in a good way when you least expect it to.

The pictures are cloudy outside (actually snowing a little, brr), artificial halogen light and artificial light with flash. I used 3 coats over Nubar Foundation, SV on top. I will return to Zoya Charity as I will to my other favorite charities. After all, Christmas is a time for giving!

  1. I love the look on the last photo. It suits your skin tone very well. =)

  2. I have always liked this color. The shimmer is so lovely. I looks beautiful on you and I agree with Sasha, it suits your skin tone well.

  3. That is a beautiful color on you!

  4. 11 days?! I am gobsmacked - what's the secret?

  5. Thank you ladies, I like the colour very much, even if I got a little bored by the end, 11 days is a loong time when you have a polish interest.

    If you look in the archive for september or october, there is a post called The one week manicure where I tell all my secrets.. ;-)

    One difference from the routine described there, this time I used Nubar Foundation base coat. It was the first time I used it and it worked great. We'll see if it was a fluke or if it really can hold the polish for more than a week on a regular bases.
