Hot For Spring: Zoya Malia

Several fashion magazines and blogs, including Lucky magazine, have reported that lilac is a trendy nail color this spring.

Zoya Malia, two coats, with flash

My favorite lilac polish is Zoya Malia. This is a fabulous color for spring! It looks so fresh and ladylike, while also still having a cool trendiness to it. Zoya Malia works well for me because it is not overly cool-toned. It doesn't lean blue, so my hands avoid the red lobster claw syndrome. Malia also looks good on my mom, whose skin is much cooler-toned than mine. I imagine that Zoya Malia would work well on most nail fanatics!

Of course I had to do a few Konads over this polish!! I knew that white would look amazing over Zoya Malia, so I tried that first, using the Konad white special polish and the leopard print from the m57 plate. White Konad designs over this polish make an incredible Easter look. It made me feel like my nails were a beautifully decorated Easter egg!

Then I decided to try this odd color combination by using a berry polish, Zoya Moxie, as the stamping color. The color combo is weird and I also used the fishnet stamp for this. The fishnet stamp is a big pain. All those little lines make for difficult stamping. But I'm working on it because I love the idea of fishnet print nails!

Zoya Malia and Zoya Moxie are available online at Art of Beauty. Konad supplies are available online at OC Nail Art.

Zoya Malia and Zoya Moxie were sent to me by a PR rep for Art of Beauty. For more details, see our Disclosure Policy.

Side note- EK and I are going to Glasgow, Scotland for the World Irish Dance Championships!!! If you notice things are slow around here, that's why! Everything will be back to normal when we return. We'll have pictures from Scotland, and hopefully some cool polishes to show you! I hope we'll also have medals to show you LOL!

Lizzy- you're right, I should have mentioned that this could easily be a one-coater if you apply it carefully!

Teresa- yes, I think this one is a must-have!!
