I’ve worked out and resigned myself to the fact that I’m no good with my nails or nail polish. Nail polish lasts all of maybe 1 day before I inevitably chip it prying staples out of paper. Yes I know we aren’t supposed to do that but I do anyway :P
Notwithstanding my aversion to nail polish, I was offered by Nail Fiesta to try a couple of more cult favourite brands that they carry in their online store. I’d read a lot about Essie and Zoya so I picked those to try, in safe colours. My definition of a “safe colour” is one I can apply without too much cussing as I go and so I settled for a very safe Felicity in Zoya and Chin Chilly in Essie.
I must say I rather like the Zoya Felicity nail polish. Its a very simple sweet pink with gold shimmer but I found the formula a little thin and its not very glossy. The good thing about the thin formula is that this nail polish dodo managed to get quite a streak-free look. The picture shows 2 coats and you can still see the whites of my nail tips. I applied one more coat and it looks better so you’ll need about 3 coats. Still, its a very pretty shade for the nails and perfect for work and for me, because chips won’t show up so much! Hurrah! :D
