Apparently the great blogger outage is only going to repair certain posts ... I would choose the day before the outage to upload four posts of information.
I thought Zoya Faye was going to be my color from the collection. A beautiful plum with gold glitter, just perfect. However, it just does not grab my eye. I'm not sure how a semi-translucent base with gold glitter smorgasbord can be boring, but this Zoya Sunshine certainly fits the definition in my case. I've even tossed Apple into the donate pile. It is almost like they made a collection, didn't like it, and tossed in glitter to liven it up. But not enough.
Additionally, it is as slow drying as everyone says. I have never had a Zoya dry so slowly. Even with 15 minutes between coats, I banged up two nails after a quick drying topcoat was added.
I guess we should have realized, if Zoya was putting this brand-new superduper set of collections on discount sale, something about the formula was going to be crappy.
Base coat - Nubar NuNails
two layers lacquer
quick drying topcoat - Nubar Diamont (old formula)
Too many issues - it is not worth it.
There is a minor bit of VNL present in certain lighting conditions, but I'm surprised that bothers anybody. It is hardly noticeable at two coats.
It has held up quite well to five days of abuse, with chipping only along peeling nail layers. Minor tip wear.
Regardless, I prefer Zoya Pru, and will be gifting Zoya Faye to another.
