Manicure of the Moment

Hello gentle readers. Happy hump day. The week is nearly at an end, the weekend is almost here. I am looking forward to it. I finally feel well enough to get out and about, do some shopping, maybe haul a little polish... Some makeup... Yepper. I need a little girlie retail therapy. Especially after the day I had yesterday. :P

Okay, so today, I have a gorgeous polish to show you. Zoya Crystal. Lord have mercy, this polish is stunning. A dark grey jelly base packed with blue shimmer and gold mini flakies. Zowie! Indoors and in shade, this polish looks almost greyed, icy. Calm.... Get it out in the sun and Pow! Sparkle, shimmer. The blue deepens and springs to life. My nails look like jewelry.

I applied three coats and topped it with Seche. Application was Zoya-licious. The formula is lovely, the viscosity perfect, it just flows into place, as if it is alive and knows where to go. I had little cleanup. Very little. I am a little curious to see what removal will be like. Most shimmery, flakie polishes are a bear to remove. Not that I am thinking about cleaning this gorgeous stuff off, at the moment.

I have a pile of pictures. Would you like to see?

And shade. I wish my camera could give this polish it's due. As pretty as it is in photos, it is ten times more so, in person. <3

What do you think of Crystal? Do you own this polish? Love it? It has vaulted right to the top of my favourite blue polishes list. This really is a very special polish and I am so happy that I chose it and I am grateful to Zoya for their recent Facebook promo that made it possible for me to try their wonderful polish.

Thank you so much for popping in. Have a wonderful evening and may your polish never bubble.
