Patriotic Polished Pairings: Statue Of Liberty


Very fast post today because i'm running late and not feeling too well. :( But I really want to share this with you on the holiday. :)

I started with a base of Zoya Hazel, a pretty slate-blue fleck-finish polish with flecks of goldish-copper in it. When I was looking at it, it reminded me of the blue-green patina that bronze statues get, including the statue of liberty...

That instantly inspired me to do two things. First, I paired the polish with a coat of Hit Polish Patina, to bring up even more of that statue-type finish color palette:

Then, finally, I finished off with a simple stamp, using Konad black and Winstonia stamping plate 114:

And there you have it...a patriotic manicure of a slightly different type. I hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July if you're here in the states, and if you're not, I hope you're having an awesome day, too!

Hugs and smooches,


  1. Lovely! Perfectly lovely!

    Happy Friday. :)

  2. Must. Have. Hazel. Every view of your pics increases the lemming factor of this polish exponentially....

    1. ROFL! It is a beauty. It's fairly similar to Zoya Crystal if you have that one...but the contrast with the gold is a little more subtle in this one. I love it. :)
