Friday Fashion Find- Back to School Style

We are doing things a little different this week for Friday Fashion Find. We chose a "street style" to feature for some Back-to-School inspiration! Meet blogger, Aliya from Ontario, creator of Click to See More. Here's what we love about this outfit for those of you who have been heading back to school or still have a few weeks of summer left! It's young, fresh, and comfortable. Denim is very hot right now, pair it with a cute floral skirt and some sandals. Try this look with a coral color on your nails like Zoya Nail Polish in Kara. Want the look? Try some of these pieces shown above!

Sandals: ALDO Tober's in leather are cute, comfortable, and a great way to transition into fall even while it's still a bit warm out.

Backback: ASOS Vans Krochet makes it cool to carry your books, and it's stylish too!

Denim Blazer: Target Mossimo has very comfortable denim that is extremely versatile. 

Sweater: This super cozy sweater from JCrew is great for layering on those chilly days.

Skirt: An airy, floral skirt from Topshop makes this look feminine and fresh. 

Now, go forth class! Impress all of your schoolmates with how fashionable you are and how fabulous your nails look. Study hard!

Back to School Occasions with Zoya Nail Polish



Dance The Night Away

We've got a date for homecoming Louise. This STUNNING chocolate cream Zoya Nail Polish is the perfect color for any fall occasion.

"Brown is the new black!", says "This creamy color goes with everything, so you don't have to worry about clashing with your perfect homecoming dress."

Since "brown is the new black", you'll definitely want to take a look at other Zoya Nail Polishes that are in the same color family (click here). Make sure you are choosing a brown nail polish that compliments your skin tone. Don't know your skin tone? Click here to find out.

Those with warmer skin tones will want to apply warmer, deeper, yellow undertoned hues. We recommend Zoya Nail Polish in Dea for you golden goddesses. 

Do you have a cooler skin tone? Using shades like Louise (above) will look best for you. Stick with hues that are have blue undertones or have a silvery shimmer.

Zoya PixieDust - To Coat or Not to Coat!

A Zoya PixieDust Comparison by Vanity Rouge

One of the most frequently asked questions about the textured, matte and sparkling Zoya PixieDust formula is, "why shouldn't you use a base and/or top coat?" The answer, is simple. A top and base coat affects how the finish looks once it dries. Vanity Rouge compares what Zoya PixieDust in Stevie looks like WITHOUT a base and top coat, WITH a base coat, and WITH a top coat. So, why do we recommend you steer clear of the base and top coats when using this textured lacquer? 

Here's why: The Zoya PixieDust textured formula naturally adheres to the nail bed, because the glitter settles in the lacquer base. It fills any ridges & creates a strong bond between the polish and surface of the nail bed - this is why it is so long lasting! When you use a basecoat in particular, you do not get this settling because you are layering the polish over a smooth surface.

"I used two coats of Stevie in the above photos and the first nail shows no topcoat and no basecoat.  For the topcoat nail I had to use two coats of a thick shiny topcoat (the first one was sucked up a bit by the texture of the PixieDust)." - Vanity Rouge

Read the rest of Vanity Rouge's post on the comparison here!
