The one with the water bottle, polka dots, and Zoya Kristen


I received some really awesome samples at Bloggers Night Out, and recently I've been loving Zoya Kristen (from a sample Birchbox) and an Earthlust water bottle. This little stainless steel water bottle has been coming on all my weekend nail polish treks :)

From the Birchbox, my favorite sample is Zoya Kristen, of course! Kristen is a pastel periwinkle creme from the 'Feel' Collection. Kristen goes on thick but isn't quite a one coater - I used two and it was perfect.

  

I love this color. It isn't quite as bright as the other pastel blues in my collection (Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau) but it's certainly not greyed out (China Glaze Sea Spray).

While I was putting on Kristen, Essie Navigate Her was on my table and the two colors looked like a great pair! Using the end of a thin paintbrush (fancy, right?), I dotted Navigate Her on my ring finger as an accent. Doesn't it look like an Easter egg?

  2. I love both of these shades a ton. And yes, it really does look Easter egg color like but not too pastel since there is a lot of yellow in the Essie. Kirsten looks more periwinkle on you than Sea Spray would IMO. It's really a GREAT shade on your skin tone!

    1. Thanks this color really did 'click' with my skin! Isn't it crazy how there is such a range even within pastels? We certainly have developed our eyes for colors :)
