Zoya Indigo

took a day off from the barn today because it poured yesterday, so the footing for riding wouldn't be great. also... i fell off again at my lesson! i'm pretty frustrated with myself, but keep trying to remind myself it's all part of learning. it's hard to remember... especially when you're a little bit psychotic about failure like i am :)

today's polish is Zoya Indigo, one of the one's i picked up from their recent promo. it's a beautiful navy blue pearl with an ever so subtle shimmer and shot through with holographic particles. sadly, the particles are way more apparent in the bottle than on the nail. the formula is great with opacity, amazing coverage in one coat and perfection at two. it does tend to be a little gloopy, so make sure you've wiped off the brush well before applying to the nail! it dries dull and the holo particles are completely hidden until a shine topcoat is added, so that step is a must with this polish.

two coats Indigo, one coat Seche Vite.

this photo (as most of mine are) is indicative of how the polish will look in bright sunlight... indoors, sometimes this polish just looks like your basic dark navy! you can see a couple of the holo particles glowing out, which is why i chose this photo :)

since there is a dressage show coming up my trainer wants us to go to, we are having an extra lesson tomorrow... barring the weather and bad footing! i know it needs to rain around here because of the severe (and perpetual) water shortage... but man, it's no fun living where is rains every day. it's worse than the city i went to college in, which was not so affectionately nicknamed Drenchburg for its propensity towards rain! i'm sure when it's summer and it hasn't rained in months, then i'll be begging for a good downpour... you always want what you don't have, right?
