[NOTD] Zoya Gloria

I love that Zoya categorizes their polishes into cool, neutral, and warm families.  I have cool-toned skin, so I look best in cool-toned colors.  By searching for cool-toned reds, I was able to find this polish, Zoya Gloria, a red with golden orange microglitters.  On my monitor, I thought this polish looked warm-toned, but I gave it a chance, and it is indeed a lovely color for me to wear.  And it's perfect for autumn.

[NOTD] Zoya Kate

When I went apple picking in September, I wore Zoya Kate, a creamy red polish to coordinate with the red apples I was picking.  Kate is a cool-toned red which leans a bit brown.  I wore two coats of Kate over one coat of Zoya Anchor basecoat, topped with one coat of New York Color Grand Central Station.

[NOTD] Oopsie Daisies Mischief Night

My nails are still dressed for Halloween.  I'm wearing the indie polish, Oopsie Daisies Mischief Night, a glitter polish which has purple and orange hexagons with pink and orange dots in a black base.  I'm wearing two coats over Wet n Wild FastDry Ebony Hates Chris.  My basecoat is Zoya Anchor, and my topcoat is New York Color Grand Central Station.  Mischief Night is very chunky, so I later added a second top coat.

Black is always a harsh contrast against my pale skin.  I love this polish, but I'm not sure it is the best color for me.
