31 Day Challenge: Day 6

Good morning everyone! Too early in the morning, in fact.
I had to get up at 7:30 to go to the doctor so now even though it is only 10am I feel like I need a nap!

I would probably take a nap... But I'm hoping the mailman is going to bring me something. So I'll stay up!

The theme for the challenge today is Violet Nails! Violet is technically a more blue-toned shade of purple, but I felt like going for a true purple instead of violet.

I thought it would be hard to choose which purple to use, but then I saw this bottle staring at me from my shelf of untrieds.

This is Zoya - Dannii and we have just fallen in love.

This is yet another of the polishes I got on my trip - This one came from Ulta in Buffalo.

When I went away I had a few things in mind that I wanted to look for, but the Zoya Intimate collection was not one of those things. I figured it was no longer in stores as it was from quite a few months ago now.
But there, in Ulta, was a practically full Intimate display. So of course Dannii came home with me, and Caitlin did too. They both have quickly become my favorite Zoya's.

This is 2 easy coats of shimmery purple goodness. I don't even really know how to describe it, it's sort of a cross between a shimmer and a foil.
So shimmery and pretty! And it is a true purple shade. Not a sad mauve purple like Zara.

The shimmer is a champagne color, and is very sparkly in the sun especially. I am staring at it in the sun coming in my window as I write this!
But it doesn't look like a regular shimmer... I don't know how to describe it. It seems a bit more complex than normal shimmer. Let the pictures do the talking.

Super, super love it. You know I love something when I have this many pictures of it.

So as I have done the last few days, here are my nails with something purple I own!

This is my little case thingy full of rhinestones and other things like pearls and dried flowers!

I've had this cute purple sparkly case for a very long time, and at some point in my childhood I put a matching purple sticker on it.
It used to house all my hair bobbles and stuff when I was young but now it has been re-purposed into a rhinestone case. And lord knows I need a case to hold all of them because when something is so cheap, you buy a lot of them.
(Or at least I do.)

Tomorrow's theme is not just a solid color, so keep your eyes peeled for that! :)


  1. I love Zoya Dannii. While I love purples, I didn't think this one would look good on me, but it totally does. Its very flattering.

  2. Whoa! This one is pretty! I've always liked purple on other people's nails, but I'm not a big fan to have it on mine. But I would like to have this one, just because it's so pretty!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! another to add to my wishlist!

  4. Gorgeous color! I didnt do todays theme but Im definitely doing tomorrow's.

  5. I love it and it's my favorite color!

  6. Loving this polish!

  7. Gorgeous! This is sitting in my untrieds. It needs to be worn!!!

  8. I love Zoya Dannii; I put it on as my mani color a couple hours ago and it's sooo pretty!

  9. violet is something that, a type of hiden personality of a person. It fits to a person that is a loner, yet escape from the crowd.

    - just 'lil opinion

    artificial nails

  10. I just love the pic where you are holding the handle! It makes it so much easier for me to imagine what it would look like on. I don't know more animated I guess makes it seem more real. Don't get me wrong, I love the close ups too but this is a really nice addition to your blog. Are you going to keep doing this after the challenge? Btw, LOVE this shade!

  11. @Gypsy - that is a great point! i'll try to show "in action" photos more often! thanks for the suggestion :)
