The Untried Diaries: Zoya Dove With a CND Sparkle
Today I have for you some polishes I purchased last spring but still hadn’t worn. First up is Zoya Dove. Dove is a light grey creme with a slight blue hue. I applied 3 coats for this mani, as the formula was a bit streaky. This is my first light grey, so I’m not sure if this is just how the color tends to be – like yellows – or if it’s this particular brand. Either way, I really liked how Dove looked on me!
I think Dove is a great work appropriate grey creme for a paler friend. It looks good on me, but because it’s so pale I think it contrasts more than a medium or darker grey would, so something darker may blend better and appear more neutral on me.
To have some fun with Dove, I whipped out one of the CND Effects polishes that has been collecting dust in my untrieds, Sapphire Sparkle. Sapphire Sparkle is a layering polish with micro glitter that appears blue or raspberry in color, depending on angle and lighting. Take a look!
LOVE! I think the blue hue from Zoya Dove is perfectly paired with CND Sapphire Sparkle, and the raspberry tinted sparkle is a nice bonus!
