Zoya “Liberty”


IMG_6830I’ve started to see 4th of July manicures popping up on various blogs and nail tutorials on YouTube.  It was kind of eye opening to think that we are just a week and a few days away from 4th of July.  Eye opening might not be the best word … more like depressing.  Because 4th of July always signals the middle of the summer for me and it seems like summer just started!

Anyways, since I’m not great at nail art and seriously lacking inspiration, I figured I would show you guys a new summer polish!  And the name seems kind of fitting for the 4th!

IMG_6831Zoya “Liberty” is a new pixie dust polish and it is a bright cerulean blue color.  This is one of my favorite shades of blue! I have a few different polishes in this shade but this is my first glitter.  It has silver glitter in there, but the blue base color kind of takes over it and makes it look like bright blue glitter peaking through.

IMG_6829The formula on this polish is typical of the other pixie dust polishes I’ve tried.  Its opaque in 2 coats but it has a ridiculously long dry time.  That is one thing that I hate about the pixie dust shades, they seem to take a good 45 minutes to an hour to fully dry.  But once they’re on, they’re on and not going anywhere!  These things are like glue once they dry!

IMG_6844And I had to know what it looked like with a top coat! I will say that this thing eats top coat, so be prepared to do at least 2 coats.  Another downside to this polish besides the long dry time is that it stains like no other! There’s only one other polish that stained my fingers this badly and I threw that polish away a long time ago!

IMG_6848I had to do 2 different treatments to get all the blue off my hands! Be prepared for smurf hands ladies!

What do you guys think? Do any of you have this polish? Have you ever had problems with staining?

    • honestly i don’t know if it is! i haven’t worn it since that first time when i noticed the staining. i just don’t want to deal with the huge pain in the butt of getting rid of smurf hands

  1. Oh my gosh! That’s some major staining!! I do LOVE that color, but I’m just not a fan of the Pixie Dust. :-\ The worst-staining polish I can think of is butter LONDON’s Royal Navy. Again…a rich, gorgeous color but holy crap…I had to soak my fingertips in acetone for a minute or 2 to get rid of the staining! lol

  2. You should try using school glue under this as a base coat so that you can just easily peel it off an there would be no need for any rubbing 🙂 Hopefully you try this and it works x

  3. Baking soda or tooth paste and a nail brush will help remove the staining. Be sure to work up the solution to a lather. This is from my daughter who is a professional hand model. Try it and see if it helps 🙂 Your blog features a beautiful color – thank you for the Independence Day inspiration.

  5. Wow. Looked so pretty but also looks like a HUGE pain in the butt! OPI’s Swimsuit…Nailed it stains pretty bad. Back when I was really big on deep reds, some of those stained too. I wanna try a 7/4 mani! 🙂

  6. Love this colour it’s stunning. Sad though it ended up like that! i always have that with red colours or neon colours annoying much
