Zoya: Gilda Tipped Tao

lol That sounds like part of a riddle, or tongue-twister. So, I was definitely in a mood yesterday. Nothing was going right, everything was turning out harder than it should have been and I suppose it's appropriate that my mani felt like mirroring that. I had already decided I was going to use Tao. I like the peaceful name and I thought it was going to be fairly subdued. Oh was I wrong. As soon as I started applying it my first thought was "Why are you so silver!?!"

That's not to say I don't like it. I do! I think Zoya is trying to replace China Glaze as my favorite brand. It is a lovely color and only needed two coats and dried fully within an hour. But I was in a mood, you see, and it's not what I wanted. So, determined to whip Tao into submission I grabbed my ever-handy bottle of matte.

That. Is. Lovely! And more in tune with my mood. Except I wasn't just upset-bordering-on-depressive. I was pretty angry, too.

That's more like it. A little freehand tipping with Gilda and that is definitely the mood I was in yesterday. Also, it totally figured that Gilda is a jelly and refused to dry so I had to push her back into place on some spots and go over my tips with a topcoat. -_- On the bright side, now I know! When I decide I'm ready to try her all over I can not skip the topcoat. lol

Looks like today's trying to be a pain in my ass as well. My sister's unsure if I'm taking her to Houston today or Thursday. I got another email from Models Own with a different order/shipment number (same email address), and they just updated their facebook page saying they're moving? Oh I hope I get my polish. Since I used the quick check-out I can't figure out how to check the status of my order. :/ And since they're moving they're all kinds of busy so it could be weeks to hear back from customer support. Guess I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Looks like I'm going to Houston today.... should probably get dressed. Wish I could say no, but like I told Aaron: If I don't do this then it'll be "all your own fault your sister doesn't have a car so you can't complain now." Screw that. :p Hope everyone's having a great day!


  1. Lol why u so silver :P it is a bit of a weird colour, I don't particularly like it so I can see why you wanted to add those pink tips :)

    1. It is definitely not what I expected, that's for sure. I think I was hoping it was more like a dark marble kind of color?

  2. Lol "I was in a mood." I get moods too! I can't wait to see Gilda on it's own. It reminds me of Glinda the good witch.

    1. AH! You had to go and say it. I've been trying so hard not to associate this color with Wizard of Oz. XD Guess the cat's out of the bag now. lol


I love hearing from you!
