New31DC: Day 18 - Your Oldest Untried


Day 18 is here! Today we have all used our oldest untried polish.  I'm ashamed to say that mine was from at least a year ago, but realistically probably longer than that.  Oops!


My oldest untried polish was Zoya Zara, a light purple with a gold shimmer.  I have to be honest, I ended up not even liking it!  In photos and in the bottle the purple base looked a bit brighter, and this is just a bit too tame for me.  Mr. Sparkles even said he didn't like it because it looked almost mauve in most lights.  So I guess this one will be going onto the swap/sell pile!  (Speaking of that, get ready for an updated blog sale sometime in the near future...)

To spice this mani up a bit I added some stamping with my new GALS plates.  I used GALS-31 for this design, and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Coco-a-go-go.


I feel very underwhelmed by this mani, it is just so not me.  I hope someone out there appreciates it anyway!

  1. lol - i wonder how many of us will feel like that today? I guess if we loved the polish, we'd have worn it by now maybe? I like the mani though xx

  2. Appreciate it? I LOVE IT!!!
    I think the color is gorgeous and it suits you so well and that golden shimmer is gorgeous and your stamping is stunning and very elegant!!!
    However, if you don't like it... nothing I say would change that, would it :-(

  4. Yea, it's definitely not as POP as polishes you normally wear... I still think it's pretty, and I'm digging the color combo, but I totally understand why it's going to swap/sell! <3

  7. The stamping makes it look great, but the polish it self might be a bit boring.
