Zoya Normani

I am finally getting around to trying out one of the polishes I picked up during my Zoya purchase in January!  I am hoping to try out all of the shades I picked up within the next little while.  I am also planning on trying out the Zoya Base and Top coats to see how they compare to my favourite Sephora Base Coat(now discontinued :() and Seche Vite Top Coat.

 Zoya Naked Manicure Base Coat, Normani polish, and Naked Manicure Glossy Seal.

Zoya Naked Manicure Base Coat, Normani polish, and Naked Manicure Glossy Seal.

Normani is described as a sable, mauve cream.  Pretty accurate description if you ask me!  Normani is part of, I think, the Natural 2 collection.  The Natural collections seem to be a range of easy to wear neutrals ranging from light to dark tones that there should hopefully be a shade for every skin tone.

The Naked Manicure Base coat dried fairly quickly so I was able to start in with Normani fairly quickly.  I will say that the brush on all 3 of these is fairly skinny, not sure I am quite a fan of that.  If you use a fairly thick coat, Normani can cover in one coat.  I ended up doing 2 thinnish coats on my nails and that seemed to do a great job of being opaque.  It didnt seem to take that long for each coat to dry, a couple of minutes?  I waited about 5 minutes before applying the Naked Manicure Glossy Seal top coat and that seemed to be enough time for Normani to dry.  The Glossy Seal Top Coat gives a lot of shine to the nail which is nice.

I will say that as of now, on day 2 of wearing the Zoya collection, I am not so impressed.  My nails are still shiny, but I do already have tip wear on 4 fingers.  I don't remember that happening with my regular base and top coat.  I will keep you updated on how they wear, both with other brands of polish and the Zoya with my regular base and top coat.
