Swatch & Review: ZOYA Crystal
Zoya Crystal can be described as a light, silvered shiny blue metallic foil with sparks of brilliant yellow gold. It looks super pretty in the bottle with all those shimmery gold flakes suspending in the icy blue base.
Intensity: 5 (1=Sheer – 5=Opaque)
Original Collection: Flame
You can see the gold flakes better under low lights:
The sparkle of this polish is amazing. However, it does dry down to a muted icy foil finish rather than all-out glitter. I imagine this on a lady like Snow Queen on a cold wintry icy day which makes it a perfect polish for winter. Well, not like it’s ever gonna snow around here where I live.. 😛
This polish was sheerer than I had expected it to be (not that the formula isn’t great) and it took me four coats to achieve bottle color. It isn’t 100% opaque because I can still see my nail tips when I hold my fingers up against the light but I couldn’t see VNL on the nails themselves.
