Polish, Tea, and Me

Where beauty and beverages finally meet!

56 notes &

I need to start this review by admitting I’m a huge fan of Zoya polishes (www.zoya.com) and they are a good third of my collection.  The variety of colours combined with the lasting power of the polish when I have very finicky nails means total love from me.  For those of you who haven’t used Zoya before a few words of caution.  Her polishes work best with the Zoya base and top coats, and do not like Seche Vite at all.  I tried them with Seche once and lost my mani by the end of the day.
Today’s polish is Blair, originally from the Pulse collection back in 2008.  She’s a beauty of a red, with purple undertones.  She’s shiny and dramatic without being a drama queen, letting her beauty speak for herself.  The camera was hard to get to capture how lovely Blair looks in person, as she shines brightly when the light is on her directly but also has these secret shadow tones on the edges.  For those who already have Zoya collections she seems to be closest to Divincia, however there are differences between the two.  I find Divincia to be a tad bit more golden.
If you’re afraid of reds or just looking for one that isn’t the same-ole traditional shades, try Blair.  She was almost opague in one coat, although I did do two for the swatch above.  Base coat was Zoya’s Anchor and top coat was Zoya’s Armor.
