Twinsie Tuesday: Zoya Zuza

This week we're doing teal nails, in recognition of September being ovarian cancer awareness month. There's currently no simple screening test for ovarian cancer, so early detection and diagnosis are key. Next time you're at the doctor, take a few minutes to ask them about early signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Hopefully it is information you and your loved ones will never need to actually use, but it's important to be informed and aware.

Okay, so that's my little speech. Let's look at some nails, yeah? :) For my teal mani, I opted for Zoya Zuza, a bright, summer-y teal with silver shimmer. It kinda reminds me of a more saturated Butter London Victoriana, an old favorite of mine.

I reeeaaaalllyyy hope this doesn't stain. I've always had bad luck with Zoya teals.  One thing I do know already though is that Zuza's actual formula is pretty "meh." There's a lotta drag to it and it can get lumpy at spots if you're not careful. I needed three coats in total.

The color itself is lovely though! The shimmer is beautifully intense and a prime example of why Zoya shimmers are such a reliable favorite in the polish world.

  1. I love Zuza! I didn't have those problems with my bottle. Perhaps you got a bad one?

  2. That's pretty! I like how muted this shade is too.

  3. I'm trying to remember, but I think I did have slight staining. It's such a pretty shimmer though!

  4. Love Zuza!!! Such gorgeous shimmer!
