Nail of the Day: South Beach Re-freshmint

For my last China Glaze Up and Away Nail of the Day (last for awhile anyway), I had to do a look with Re-freshmint. This is a super subtle look, but extremely pretty in person!!!

For this look, I did three coats of Re-freshmint with two coats of Zoya South Beach Ice on top (see South Beach Ice alone here).

On camera, South Beach Ice just looks like a layer of shimmer, but in person, you can see that it really deepens and adds to the color of Re-freshmint. These two polishes together make one of my favorite looks for Spring 2010. If you own both of these polishes, try this out immediately. If you only own one of these, buy the other one now!! If a polish company came out with a polish that looked like this, I guarantee there would be a stampede for it!!!

We are definitely fans of the more shimmery and sparkly polishes, so EC thought it would be a great idea to add some flair to the usually kind of boring cremes! I definitely am more of a glitter/shimmer girl myself. Who wants to wear boring polishes all the time? Not me! lol

Very pretty!!! What does the South Beach Ice look like on its own? I got a few zoyas b/c of the sale, but I didn't get any that are top coats...I think. I did get Snowsicle, so we'll see how opaque that is when it arrives. :)

Ooooh Snowsicle!! Sounds pretty! The link to my pic of South Beach Ice by itself vanished magically, but I put it back in lol. It's in my Intro to Zoya polish post. What other Zoyas did you get Teresa?

Teresa said...

:) Too many!!!! :D I'm such an addict. :) I got two batches of 4 to maximize the savings...Snowsicle, Adina, Indigo and Roxy in one batch, and Ki, Yasmeen, Kotori and Colbie w/ a Remove+ in the other! :D The first batch arrived but I need to do a super fast mani tonight - going w/a holo b/c of the dry time. Think I'll try LOL from the China Glaze collection. Need to start doing my nails earlier than 11 pm!

Never Enough Nails said...

Ooooooo good choices!!! Adina=AMAZINGGGGGGGGG! And Colbie gets used in my house about once a week between me and my mom. It's like the perfect blackened red!
I completely missed that sale because I was away. I came back and saw the emails and wanted to cry. I love that Zoya has great deals like that though!!! Next time!

I feel your pain - I was working during the 50% off RBL sale! Heartbreak. Ah, well, what can you do? :)

My co-workers are going crazy over LOL - I had on IDK yesterday and the holo effect has the girls drooling. :) I like how fast they dry but they only last a day b/c no top coat to maximize holo = instant chip on my right index finger, and lots of tipwear on all fingers by end of day. If only I could be an independently wealthy "lady who lunches" my manis would last a week! :D

LOL and if you were an independently wealthy lady I bet you would have about 4000 polishes and change your mani every day anyway LOL!
