day two hundred and thirty four, zoya tallulah (+konad)

did you guys hear about Essie being bought by L'Oreal!? congratulations to her...what a big coup! but at the same time...Essie has made cruelty free polishes and L'Oreal is one of the biggest animal testing companies around....so it will be interesting to see what happens. L'Oreal owns shu uemera, kiehl's, the body shop, lancome and maybelline and apparently they are no longer cruelty free. it's worth discussing if you're interested!


but ANYWAY, onto today! another one from my zoya swap, i'm super excited about it, i LOVE it! it's called 'tallulah' from the ooh-la-la collection of summer 2009. it's a gorgeous electric blue with multicoloured shimmer. i can't stop staring at my hands! i usually don't konad (even though i like to) because i'm not very good at it and i can never figure out what colour and what design to use. also i overthink it because i worry about it detracting from the polish i'm trying to show! but i stamped....i don't remember what plate but i used china glaze 2030 (i said it was a great stamping polish!). i really like this particular konad because it's supposed to look random and i don't have to stress if it's perfectly aligned or covering my full nail!


image heavy...i got a bit carried away!

Still says the Body Shop is against animal testing. Lets hope Essie can too. It's barbaric.

skulda thank you for telling me, i was unaware if they had changed their policies! it is nice to now they are still cruelty free! i hope essie remains the same too!


thank you susie! i get really OCD about aligning them properly and covering my nails completely and i get stressed or i can't figure out how to make it look nice so i usually skip it! i'm glad i did on this one though, it really brought a whole new level of 'awesome' (:D) to the manicure!!!
