I'm Back with Zoya Julieanne on top of the Üetliberg

Hello fellow nail polish lovers. As you may have noticed I've been on an extended break from blogging. I'm now moved into my little apartment in Chicago. It was a bumpy ride moving back to the USA.

Finding an apartment in Chicago in the right neighborhood was difficult! So I spent two days looking at apartment after apartment before finding the one I am in now. I moved in Halloween weekend and so far I've been settling in to my life here. Getting used to living in a big city is the main one. This is nothing like my hometown and nothing like Zürich!


So on to the nail polish. I'm going to show you some pictures of Zoya Julieanne. It's an old NOTD I had way back in August when my mom was visiting me in Zurich. I used two coats and it covered really well.

As you can see Julieanne is a dark purple. It has a glass flecked finish that's really gorgeous. This photo was actually taken up on top of the Üetliberg mountain in Zurich. It's a 20 minute train ride from Zurich main station. It has really lovely views of the city and I recommend going if you're ever in the area. I'm actually at the top of the lookout tower they built.

Here are some close ups of the glass flecks! The color shifts a bit too.

So here is the tower on the Üetliberg. It's pretty easy to climb and the view is even better up there!

This is the main area of Zurich. By the lake are most of the main tourist attractions. Most of the stuff around it is where the locals are going about their day-to-day business.

Further down the lake there are a lot of cute villages. There are also farms and vineyards mixed in around. It's really pretty and peaceful down the lake in the little villages.

This picture shows how long and vast the lake is. It stretches even further down to the left. I've even taken a train to the end of the lake to the city Rapperswil which is actually in a different Canton so it's pretty far away!

And no trip is complete without meeting a friendly local cat while out. This guy walked down the path from the top to where the train was. He was so affectionate and let me give him some ear scratches.
