Zoya Shelby

Hopefully your morning is off to a better start than mine today. I feel super sick but have to muster up the energy to go to work. Ugh... How about some polish as a nice distraction? I've got Zoya Shelby for you today. Shelby is a bright, blue-based pink creme. I am drawn to this type of pink, especially for lip colors and blushes, but I didn't really have anything close to it in my polish stash.

I really like this color. Unfortunately I can't remember if this was two or three coats. :-/ I will tell you thought that it dries noticeably darker than how it appears in the bottle and even with basecoat, it stained my nails pretty badly. I don't think I've ever had a pink polish stain my nails before, so I was really surprised, but I guess there's a first time for everything. You'll definitely want to double up on your basecoat for this one!

Staining aside, it's a fun polish--nice and bright! It makes me miss summer already! The weather has been garbage here lately. I think I may pop this on my toes for my next pedi. She's not your average pink--an eye-catcher for sure!


  1. This is sooooo pretty!! I can't believe it stained though :(. I love it on you. I'm tempted to add it to my wish list.
    Feel better honey.

  2. aww, feel better! and I REALLY like this polish on you, it definitely would be perfect for a pedi.

  3. I don't care how many pinks I see, I think they all are pretty and this is no exception.

  4. Mmmmm this so sooo pretty! It's like bubblegum!!

  5. Aw I really hope that you feel better soon!! Gorgeous pink! :D

  6. This is yummy - and it's totally in my neck of the woods right now to wear this shade - we have another heat wave hitting California - it's supposed to be 85 today and I live 2 blocks off the beach in northern part of the state! What' with this??? We had heat - hot like this a week ago then a dip and now it's back again. I am so never going to be able to were fall colors and clothing...I have been in summer shorts and sandals it seems like forever! This also is a great pink for BCW...what ever happened to the wesr the pink Wednesdays many bloggers were doing yr round? It brought so much attention to not just a color of polish that is good to wear yr round just as is a red...but for those who really are aware - breast cancer and support the pink was a weekly thing and not just this massive Oct campaign.
