In honour of our Go Pink Wednesday effort, I am thrilled to share a guest post by my good friend / sometime-guest-blogger Mai! <3
It’s Week 3 (already!) of the Go Pink Breast Cancer awareness month, in support of breast cancer awareness which is a cause near and dear to my heart.
This week’s pink is Zoya Maya, which I initially picked up as it’s the closest Zoya to my name, Mai. I was super thrilled when Maya arrived, the pinky colour was unlike anything in my collection, and it’s even better on the nail.
Maya is a beautiful soft watermelon pink that is just a treat on my nails. While not a true jelly, this polish really has a great squishiness that makes me think this is some sort of a cream-jelly hybrid, a crelly I think they’re called? This pink is perfect for those hot summer days with the sun on your shoulders, or as I’ve found, a perfect compliment to the gorgeous fuzzy-grey-sweater cooler fall weather we’ve been having. I’m really impressed with Zoya’s formula as it was a breeze to apply, and is shown with just two coats and Essie Good to Go as the incredible shiny topcoat. There is something I really like about Zoya’s brushes, too, they seem easier for my style of application. I have to say, I also really like the shape of the Zoya bottles. Simple, elegant, and unique. The above photo was taken on a bright cloudy day and I found it best captured the actual polish colour on my nails.
This is a post that makes me think about my loved ones, here and gone. Both the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society have a wealth of information that can help save lives. Please visit their great websites.
Breast cancer is a horrible, horrible disease that is best treated with early detection. Know yourself, know your body, and give your mom, aunt, sister, and girlfriends an extra tight hug the next time you see them.
