Penny For Your Thoughts

I was sad to see my water marble pink chevron mani go away ~ I think it was my favorite one yet! I decided to pull out the Zoyas since I haven't fully swatched or used any of them yet. I decided on Zoya Penny. This is a gorgeous metallic bronze with itsy bitsy micro gold, red and copper glitter. The application was nice and I could have gotten away with two coats, but I had a few bald spots so went for three.

First Shot is Indoors with Flash

Outside at dusk
While I love the color it just doesn't say summer to me. This would be perfect when October and November roll around. I also haven't tried my Sinful Colors All About You gold glitter. This is a clear base full of small round gold and red glitters.

I sponged the tips with a standard makeup sponge. I think these two go great together since they offer the same red and gold hues.

I then smoothed it out with one coat of Seche Vite. This will survive until my vampire entry for PHD due Friday.


  1. A perfect fall color!:D Love it!:D
    Beauty. Fashion. Interior Design.
    & Life According to Marie.

  2. Very pretty! I definitely agree that this is a fall color, though.

  3. Ohhh i really like this one. It reminds me of one of the polishes in $OPI's summer collection this year, can't remember the name

  4. So pretty! I see what you mean about not feeling summery enough. It brings to mind falling leaves. But it also blazes like a sunset on water and that could be an image of summer...

  5. Marie, Zara & Aggie thank you! I'd so much rather me using brights right now when its warm =D

    Thanks Danielle, let me know if you remember~!

    Kitty - I'm thinking it will go perfect with the konad leaves tip design, but I never thought of it as a sunset on water and that's definitely summer ;)

  6. I love the combination! and the sparkles! oooo!

  7. Thanks so much Ping!

    NoSugar - yay sparkles! I wasn't sure if they would contrast enough or not.
