This blog has never been about swatching polishes as I’ve always tried to have a clear focus on nail art and although I do sometimes have plain colour on my nails I don’t tend to photograph and post them. At the moment though, I’m on the hunt for the perfect blue for my wedding nails so I thought I’d share that on here and do my first bit of swatching on this blog.
So this is Zoya Blu which was the first pale blue creme I saw and thought might be perfect for my wedding in 2 months. Zoya is not a brand that’s easily available in Spain so I had to order it from the USA. It is indeed a beautiful blue and I may well have found the perfect blue on my very first try (although I’m definitely going to try a few others just to make sure!)
It has an almost pink-ish tone to it which makes it a very soft colour and flattering to my pink skin tone. I applied two coats which gave great coverage – at one coat it looked ok but a bit uneven. The formula was a bit thick but generally I didn’t have problems with the application although you can see a slight bit of wrinkling on my pinky finger – this might be because the coats went on thick and I was impatient waiting for them to dry. This is my big negative point for this polish – it took ages to dry and obviously I don’t want to worry about smudging my polish on my wedding day.
Overall I though it was a gorgeous colour but I’m hoping I might find something equally beautiful with slightly quicker drying time and less thick formula.
