The wonderful people over at Zoya (you can follow them on Twitter under @Zoya_NailPolish) sent me some wonderful colors to try from their UltraGlitter line. When I received them, I fell instantly in love with the vibrant and shimmery hues. The colors also looked perfect for the holiday season. I couldn’t wait to dive them and try them off myself.
I am not one for painting my nails. I have acrylic overlay over my nails (which are real by the way) and usually get my polish changed when I get a fill. But of course when I received the polishes, I had to try them right away. So here it goes! And I apologize in advance for the not-so-perfect nail painting. LOL.
The first color up is LUNA. A silvery hue that is very avant garde and bold. The polish was very easy to apply and I only had to use two coats (and a top coat of course). I am a very experimental when it comes to colors and LUNA is now in my top ten favorite colors. I am sure I will be rocking it often this winter. The photos make the color look whiter than it is, but it is very much a silver color with specs of glitter, shimmer. Definitely a holiday must have. The only pro I would have with this color and product is when removing, the glitter was extra hard to remove.
Next up was NOVA. The one drawback with this color is that in order to replicate the vibrancy of the color in the bottle, I had to apply three coats of polish. I also have long nail beds so that may be a reason why it took one more extra coat than normal. The color, again, is holiday ready and fashion forward. Zoya’s applicator brush glided against my nails very easy and made it almost effortless to paint them.
The last color I applied was ASTRA which was very similar to NOVA. As a matter of fact, in these pics, I don’t know ifyou can even tell they are two different colors. ASTRA is a step lighter (and more “red) than NOVA (NOVA is more plum, purple color) but still gave the same effect. Again, I had to use three coats in order to get that “bottle” look. Personally, I enjoy darker colors for my skin tone so NOVA would be my pic over ASTRA, but both colors are stunning, especially in person.
All-in-all, I would recommend these fabulous colors to all of my Cubicle Chicks. Fun, vibrant, and overall fashion forward, these lacquers area must have for any fabulous woman’s collection.
