It is a beautiful, sunny day. 61 degrees. Perfect for polishing. Luckily I received a little packet from Zoya, today. Two of my three free polishes from their Facebook Like promotion. I chose Erika, Crystal and Kelly. Kelly is on backorder and I will receive it when it is available. Which is fine.
I always wondered what all the hype about Zoya polish was all about. I mean... Polish is polish. There is nice polish and there is crap. Zoya is gorgeous polish. Now I get the hype. I get the raves and I want more of this brand.
Today I decided to apply and show you Zoya Erika. I originally chose this polish because it is my namesake. (Yes, even the spelling is the same. :D) On the website, it looked like a nice, simple pink with a little goldie shimmer. In person, this is a beautiful rich, girlie pink packed with dancing, complex gold shimmer. It is so very pretty.
The formula is flawless. Smooth, silky and the perfect viscosity. It flows off the brush onto the nail so easily, it practically applies it's self. I had so little cleanup I was stunned. lol Fast drying, I didn't have to sit and wait and wait for it to dry enough for me to take pictures. I topped this with Seche. I have read that some gals had trouble with Zoya and Seche not playing well together. I didn't have any trouble, at all. Same with my basecoat. I use China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat and it works just fine with Zoya.
This colour is a little on the sheer side. I applied two coats. I probably should have done a third to get it perfectly opaque, especially with my nasty ridges. But I really wanted to see how it looked and lasts with two. Next time I wear it, I will definitely do three. But I am pretty happy with the finish with two, as well.
Wold you like to see pictures? I have lots. :D
These are all clickable, if you want to check out the shimmery fun this polish offers. I'm sorry that they all came out at an angle. I normally get some straight on, but I blew it, today. :P
I am so impressed with Zoya and I won't hesitate to buy more in the future. It was great of Zoya to do this promo, it got a lot of us who were on the fence to try them and I am sure that many first timers, like myself will go back for more.
So, have you received your Free Three? Are you a first timer who is now as thrilled with this brand as I am?
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a lovely evening and may your polish never bubble.
