Hi guys! Welcome to this month's Nailstalgia post, where we take a look at an older, but well-known commercial polish shade! This Friday just happened to fall on Halloween (yay!), so I spiced up the swatch with some nail art! Hopefully you can still get an idea of the color.
This month, let's feast our eyes on Zoya- Happi:
Happi is originally from the Spring 2010 Reverie collection, and is a cotton candy pink base with strong, present gold microshimmer. Because of the warm-toned shimmer, the entire polish reads as a very warm pink.
Artificial light, four coats:
A nice thing about this polish is that the shimmer is always apparent, so it's very pretty and interesting in all types of lighting!
The fish bone stamp on the ring finger is from MoYou London Pro XL-05 (I stamped with Kleancolor- Metallic Black), and the spooky trees pattern on the thumb is from Bundle Monster BM-407 from the Create Your Own set. Neither of those stamps are specifically Halloween-y, but I thought they were sort of creepy together?
The chevron v-shape on the middle nail has one coat of Illamasqua- Swarm.
Formula: A little strange, but workable. It's got a thicker consistency, but is pretty sheer. The texture is a bit syrupy and spreads over the nail easily. People with long nails beds or short nails all together might be able to get away with three coats, but I still had pretty obvious nail line. Four coats, but the good news is that the layers dry down quickly. Even so, I'd recommend this polish more for layering. It'd look lovely over a creme pink!
Will any of you be wearing pink for Halloween?
Any fun 'ween plans?
