A few more Zoya swatches

Hope everyone had a good weekend! Mine was pretty lazy, just the way I like em! I booked my San Diego "me" getaway for next weekend, I am so excited! I am looking forward to wandering on beaches and shopping. I think I am going to go see the Old Point Loma lighthouse, it looks kinda meh compared to some of the lighthouses on the east coast but I'll take what I can get! Thinking about going down to Coronado too, I love it there! Today I have a few more Zoya swatches for you, they are Gwin, Dea and Nova. I swatched Ki also but I took about 50 pictures of my nails and none of them turned out, it is not an easy color to capture so I'm going to have to try again later.

Dea- This color was one on the top of my "need" list from Zoya, I love a nice brown polish and they are hard to come by. This one is fantastic! After the first coat I was skeptical about it but the second coat evened it out and warmed it up, it was opaque after two coats. It reminds me of a milk chocolate candy bar, like I melted one all over my nails....any polish that looks like candy is a winner in my book! This is 2 coats of Dea and one coat of Seche Vite.

Gwin- This color was also on my "need" list. Can't say I am as impressed as I was with Dea. It's a nice color a bright tangerine-ish orange with a gold shimmer, but I just don't love it on me. Application was a chore, it was more watery than I am used to from Zoya so my fingers were a mess. I think for me this will be a pedicure only polish. This is two coats of Gwin and one coat of Seche Vite.

Nova- This polish is part of the Ultra Glitter collection from Zoya and it certainly does pack in the sparkle. It's a nice fuchsia with different shades of pink glitter. Application was easy, I used 3 coats on my nails I could have used one more to cover the spots where the glitter was lacking a little. My only compliant: major chipping after not even 1 full day of wear :( I do love the color though so I can look past the chipping! This is three coats of Nova and 2 coats of OPI Start to Finish.
