God I’ve gotten poor at blogging, I know I need to get back on track with regular posting as it really is the most effective way to maintain a good following and consistent figures, although that’s not important for everyone, as a freelancer it’s a useful way to maintain a extra income source and I’ve definitely been crap recently, just too busy!
Anyway, after a month of no nail polish I finally found some time to look after myself with some at home pampering and much needed manicure. I went for glitter as it lasts the best and always cheers me up, here’s my review and swatches of Zoya’s glitter nail polish in shade, Staasi.
First off, I love the elegant and unusual bottle shape. It’s easy to handle for application and stands out as being distinctly from this brand, which for me is always a nice thing. In the bottle you’ll see it’s pure glitter! Lots of different shades of green and a few different particle sizes. The base is a fine lime green glitter and there are larger rounded particles of iridescent sparkle that reflects blues, greens and golds.
On first coat the colour is very sheer, you definitely wouldn’t want to wear it with one coat, but it would work really well over the top of a base colour. I’d love to try it over a metallic bronze or blue. With two or three coats you can get an even and thick, solid glitter coverage which is the look that I prefer. The glitter is mega difficult to capture on my nails with my phone, but I’d say that the colour dries accurately to the bottle.
The quality is great and so far there’s been no chips and I’ve been busy crafting and doing housework, so that’s a great sign. Let’s hope it lasts the weekend as we’ve got a lot on this week and I don’t think I’m going to have a moment for another manicure! This nail polish has also reminded me that I need more glitter nail polish in my life.
