Yesterday’s trip to the DMV was very successful, which was a relief. The first time I went, there were 30 people in line ahead of me. In twenty minutes, no one moved. So, I decided not to stay for what surely would have been at least a three hour wait, and went back yesterday. This time, just four people were ahead of me! I was so happy. I’m pleased by the littlest things.
Today is the final post for my Zoya swatch series. Let’s do a little shimmer!
First is Yara, a forest green with a green-gold shimmer.
The color on this was promising, but didn’t quite deliver. As you can see from the bottom picture, it has a muddy gray tinge. In full light (the top picture), it looks gorgeous, but unless you walked around with a spotlight on your nails, you’re out of luck. So, not horrible, but not great, either. Formula-wise, it was sheer and needed four coats. It’s possible my coats could have been too thin, though. Overall, I give this .
Next is Skylar, a slate blue with an unusual shimmer.
In these pictures, the shimmer looks silver, but in person, it seemed to be gold and copper, with a touch of green. It’s really attractive. The formula was good, just a little on the sheer side. This was three coats. This gets .
Last is Tru, a royal purple with a copper shimmer.
This purple is okay, but my reaction to it was bleh. It just didn’t excite me. And I love purples! I’m not sure what it is about it, but I just didn’t like it that much. The formula was the same as Skylar: good, but sheer. This is three coats.
Next, I’ve got a bunch of nail art planned, designed to showcase all of the Zoyas in this swatch series. It’s going to be a busy weekend! Tune in Monday. In the meantime, have a great weekend!
