Hi guys! I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! (Don't forget that Mother's Day is tomorrow if you live in the United States!!) Today's nail polish is Zoya's "Monet"
"Monet" is a glittery nail polish in a clear base. The glitter has the appearance of a flakie because the light bounces off the glitter and creates a variety of color. Formula wise "Monet" was difficult to apply. The glitter did not want to stay on my nail and the clear base was a bit watery. However with a little practice and patience I was able to get glitter on my nails. "Monet" is made to be a top coat and not worn on its own. As for chipping that varies based on what base polish you wear. I decided to test "Monet" out over a few nail polishes:
First I decided to try Zoya's "Monet" over Salon Perfect's "Sugar Cube." The picture doesn't do this look justice. In real life the glitter creates a fun glittery look that is only noticeable is the right light. The picture makes it looks weird and speckled. However you can see how many different colors the glitter reflects! This picture also shows how difficult it is to get an even coat of "Monet" on the nail.
If you want more info on "Sugar Cube" here's a post from earlier this month: http://perfectlypolished12.blogspot.com/2015/05/salon-perfect-sugar-cube.html
Next I decided to try Zoya's "Monet" over Sally Hansen's Triple Shine's "Pink Coconut." This combination turned out to be my favorite of the three I tried! The pink base and the flakie shimmer of "Monet" created a fun girly look! (Also my apologies for the blurry photo but after over fifty attempts this was the best I could get!)
The third and final polish I tried with Zoya's "Monet" was Finger Paint's "Dream I Can Fly." This combination reminds me of Cinderella's dress! The flakies reflected a lot of silver in this combo which was very pretty! Again my apologies for the blurry photo as it turns out "Monet" just isn't a fan of cooperating with the camera!
Overall I am quite pleased with Zoya's "Monet." While it was a bit difficult to apply I did get better at it over time and "Monet" seems to look very pretty over a variety of creme polishes! I will definitely be wearing this nail polish again soon!
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
