Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today I have tons to share with you guys! First I wanted to talk about the new Z-Wide brush from Zoya. Earlier this month Zoya decided to give fans a whole new polishing experience by offering up a wider brush option. As most of you know, the traditional brush from Zoya is a narrow brush for precision application and while it’s a great brush, some out there love a wider brush. Well, Zoya has listened to their fans and is now giving you the option of purchasing an extra brush that has the wider application. The new Z-wide brush has 60% more bristles so you are getting a ton of polish! For today’s manicure I gave the Z-wide brush and try and I have to say, I really like it. I don’t see converting all of my brushes to the new Z-wide, but I do see converting some of my most loved lacquers. If you do like wider brushes, it will set you back an extra $2 per Zoya.
Now for the mani, I created using the new Z-wide brush. I recently attended the Galaxy of Lights walkthrough event at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens so it only seemed natural that I create a Galaxy inspired mani for my trip. For my Galaxy of Lights look, I started off with two coats of Geneviev by Zoya. The Z-wide brush offered me great coverage and even though my pinky nails are small, it fit perfectly. Next, I used The Stars In Her Eyes… by Lynnderella to create a colorful galaxy of lights vibe. Everything is sealed with a coat HK Girl Top Coat by Glisten & Glow.
What do you guys think? I loved all the flashes of color and still in love with those tiny stars from Lynnderella! The Galaxy of Lights event at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens was a fabulous event! I went over 20 years ago for one of their drive-through nights and wanted to go for one of their walking nights for years! The Galaxy of Lights event is an almost two months long light show that offers guest two miles of gorgeous light displays. I didn’t get a ton of pics due to the crowds but I do have a few to share.
Do you have any holiday traditions? I certainly hope to add the Galaxy of Lights at Huntsville Botanical Gardens to my tradition and am already planning on going closer to Christmas for one of their drive-through nights. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you all again soon!
Zoya Z-wide brush provided for review but that does not influence my opinions.

What a lovely holiday mani! I like the stars
Oh I love that glitter!!!
That new Zoya brush looks great. I hope all the newest shades will have that. This is a great lit up manicure. The colors on the black are superstars.

I ordered 4 quads from Zoya on Black Friday, and they put in a Z wide brush. I always hated the regular Zoya brush, so I am looking forward to trying it. In fact, I tried to buy some more when I ordered, but I couldn’t get the brushes to get into my cart, grrrrr. Love Lynnderella – so much going on
aw, I love holiday llights. The Llyn is cute!! I’m assuming the wide brush only exists on her site? I wonder if Ulta will carry them.

I forgot all about lynderella. Perfect combo.

I prefer wider brushes so I love they now have them! The downside for me is I would prefer the option of brush when I order rather than having to pay extra for a brush each time. I feel like this will turn off a few people.
The idea of switching out polish brushes is something I have truly never considered but that wide brush looks like it’d apply like a DREAM!
That’s a stunning galaxy mani! I love how holographic the star glitter is, and all the flashes of light. Do post pictures of your Galaxy of Lights walk this year!

The peacock made out of lights is so neat!

I ordered the Zoya Hydrating System when it was on sale but actually paid full price for it because they were offering a free wide brush with your order that didn’t use a coupon code and I wanted to try it. I prefer wider brushes and Zoya’s smaller brushes is actually one of the only reasons I don’t use their polishes exclusively. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m excited to.
