I'm in the process of working through my untried polishes. I only really count a polish as being tried when I have worn it for 3 days to a week. I know it's a weird system but that's how I justify the price :P As long as it is untried and I feel like wearing it then on it goes. This week I thought I'd try out one of the polishes I won in a giveaway from Gosia at Life In Color, In the end I picked out Zoya Blaze.
Zoya Blaze comes out as a deep berry red on the nail. It has a jelly look to it. It is packed with a weak holographic glitter most of which is hidden within the polish. At first I was a bit disappointed but really I think it makes the polish more suitable for work/meeting and the likes. You have the lovely hint of holographic sparkles but it's not mindblowingly apparent.
Zoya is free from formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor. A great bonus as thesee are not chemicals you want to be playing around with. You get 15ml of product and the bottle is adorable. One downside to this is the fact I needed 3 coats to even it all out. For a more expensive brand I would expect 2 coats maximun. It did dry fairly quickly so that gives it some bonus points.
Blaze is from the 2012 Ornate collection (one of their best in my opinion). In Ireland I think the only place we can get Zoya nail polish is online at Supernail Ireland. They cost €10.49 each but shipping is fairly expensive unless you are ordering a few polishes in one go.
Not a very spring like manicure but since we've had nothing but tornado warnings for the past week I think a nice deep shade was in order ;)
