Zoya Lux

10 May

Hi friends, I’m so sorry it’s been ages since I updated — I got really busy at work and blogging just fell to the side. Luckily, most of that work is finished now, and today is my day off so here I am!

So I recently received a package of polish from Gini aka Sassypaints for Easter, and in it were a bunch of different polishes that I’ve been dying to try! Sadly, I’ve been so busy I’ve hardly had the chance! The other day, I finally got to try the first one — Zoya Lux.

I’ll be perfectly honest here — textured polish is not my thing, mainly because it’s a hassle to remove. That’s basically how I feel about glitter polish, too, and look at that — this polish is both! It’s a textured glitter polish. Very shiny. No absence of glitter here! That being said, it wasn’t actually so bad to remove — after a couple of days, my polish just popped right off! I’ve been having this trouble with almost all of my polishes lately, I have no idea why. For some reason, my nail beds are repelling the polish. Sometimes I look down and am missing a whole nail’s worth of polish and I have no idea how or why! While it helps make it easier for me to remove the polish — I wish it would stop, haha. If anyone has any recommendations (new base coat maybe? I’ve tried dozens), please advise me in the comments!

Anyway, I’ll definitely say this polish is unique. It’s very sparkly and eye catching, but at the same time the color is pretty muted — just a faint rosy silver. If it wasn’t so glittery, I doubt anyone would have noticed my nails. The texture was kind of funky — I’m easily distracted and I found the texture when I accidentally touched it to be very noticeable. My sister really liked it, though. She thought the texture was cool. I’ve still got two more of these textured glitter polishes to try, so I’ll probably warm up to them. One thing I do like a lot about textured polishes is that they dry super fast. And I love Zoya because it’s 5 free and vegan! It’s really a quality brand and I’m so thrilled and thankful to Gini for sending these to me!

I hope everyone has nice Mother’s Day plans tomorrow — if you haven’t gotten your mother something nice yet, a mani/pedi at your local salon is a foolproof gift 😉
