Happy May! So now that April is over we are getting closer and closer to Summer! And I am super ready for Summertime weather and activities! So to start off May I decided to rock a fun bright red by Zoya called "Sooki." When I saw this color I thought it was nice but I knew I had to have it when I saw its name! I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan (probably gives you an idea of how old I am) and I own all of the seasons! For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it is a show based around a mother and daughter duo who live in a small town in New England. Anyways one of the main characters is a lady named Sookie. Now the spelling is different but the name of the Zoya nail polish reminds me instantly of the character who is fun, bright, and happy! Basically I adore Zoya's "Sooki"! :)
Anyways the application of Zoya's "Sooki" was stellar! Very easy and almost a one coater, though I opted for two as I almost always do. I will say that while application was easy, clean up is a bit difficult because it is a red nail polish. Red shows off imperfections really well (isn't that nice...not really) and because of that there are some obvious flaws. But I can live with that since the formula is so nice! As for chipping I started to see tip chips after about a day. And by day three my nail polish was basically destroyed. Zoya "Sooki" chipped very easily, which was very disappointing since my previous experience with Zoya was much better. In terms of removing Zoya "Sooki" my nails had some minor stains and the red nail polish got stuck in my cuticles. It took forever to get it all off!
Overall I still love Zoya and the name Sooki, but I am not the biggest fan of this nail polish. It was difficult to clean up my nails after painting and I most certainly did NOT appreciate the staining on my nails once the nail polish was removed. I also did not like how quickly Zoya "Sooki" chipped. However the color is pretty and the formula is stellar so I will probably wear "Sooki" again, but on my toes.
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
