I’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!
Zoya “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.
The 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!
And 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!
What do you guys think? Do any of you have this polish? Have you ever had problems with staining?
