Up first I think I’ll show you guys the varnishes from Illamasqua’s new collection (the makeup is in the previous post).
left to right:
All these polishes have a rubber type finish, kind of in between gloss and matte. When I was taking polish off my nails today, I actually got similar finish. It’s hard to describe so maybe I’ll have to show you guys the next time I take off my polish. Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about the rubber finish. I’m not a big fan, it’s just too undecided for me.
Anyway, If you want to see swatches, you can go here.
Next up is Zoya Cynthia. This is one of the polishes that I bought when Zoya had their buy 1 get 2 free promo going on. It was too summery to wear them back then and now that its almost looking like fall I’ve decided to start wearing them.
This is Cynthia, two coats. This is after about a week of wear and it does look a little dingey..I apologize. I love this color! Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a dark blue but this one is like a really dark teal. You can see how the greenish tones come out in the sunlight. In low light it looks almost black.
Coverage is great and is completely opaque and nice and dark after two coats. It does need a top coat because I find that they do dry a little dull. The formula was very good, maybe a little thinner than Anja, but still smooth and covers nicely.
Until next time,
