zoya

Zoya nail polish is apparently the color of fashion. I'm not really sure what that means, but I've heard a lot of people talking about it recently. I found a youtuber who does live swatches and reviews of nail polish, which is super helpful when deciding which colors to try, so I used her Zoya reviews to help me pick out two polishes.

Both colors are really pretty, but the formula for the nudey pink (Chantal) was really hard to work with. That's really not cool with me, because these are supposed to be more high-end nail polishes. But the silver sparkle polish (Seraphina) went on wonderfully and is absolutely beautiful, so now I'm not sure how to feel about the brand.

I think probably I'll stick to my Essie. I'm never disappointed with them and I always know what I'm getting. Plus Zoya isn't sold at any big beauty retailers and buying products from separate vendors is both inconvenient and less cost-effective.

I'm not very good at applying nail polish, but you can see here that the Seraphina is really opaque for being a sparkle polish. This is because the sparkles are super finely milled. Also the formula applies smoothly and doesn't feel grainy when it's dry.
