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.
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.
