Zoya Sailor

Hey everyone! Hope you had a good week. Call me crazy, but I've really been wanting a big snow because we haven't had much snow yet this winter. I was deciding on a nail vinyl to use and came across my snowflake vinyls from PolishedVino. I'll get into more detail later on how I use them.

To start I used two coats of Zoya Sailor, a gorgeous dark navy creme with an amazing formula. I also used two coats of Zoya Dream on my middle nail. Whenever I'm doing nail art I like to work on top of a silicone mat, such as this one from Bliss Kiss. It makes clean up so much easier, plus you don't have to wait forever for your base nail color to dry. I've had way too many frustrating experiences of putting the vinyl on my nails before they were fully dry and totally ruined my base.

Here's how I created the snowflakes:
1. Peel the vinyl off and place on the silicone mat.
2. Use your color of choice (I used Zoya Trixie and then Lux) to paint over the negative space and immediately peel the vinyl, leaving your design on the mat.
3. Let the design dry and then put a layer of top coat over it. I like to do all of this before painting my nails so it has a chance to dry completely.
4. Once you've finished painting your nails and they've had some time to dry, use some sort of tool (I used tweezers) to peel the design off the mat and press it into the nail.
5. Seal your design with top coat.

Have a great weekend!
