Today I have a quick, office appropriate mani. It starts with two coats of Zoya Kelly, a creme polish that manages to be gray, purple and blue at the same time. Kelly was originally released as part of Zoya’s Fall 2010 Wonderful Collection, but it got a reboot this year when it was one of about a dozen polishes worn by the models at Rafael Cennamo’s Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week presentation. Zoya has pegged Kelly as an alternative to black and a neutral. I must agree.
The polish looks really purple at the Zoya website, but it’s definitely more gray in real life…which I like. To spice it up a little, I took a medium striper brush and quickly (like lightning fast) applied matte stripes using Sephora by OPI Matte Top Coat.
The OCD in me doesn’t like to see the sloppy lines in the pics. But it really is so subtle that unless someone corners me with a DSLR camera and forces me to pose for hand shots against my will…I think I’m safe!
