Zoya goes down a 'Storm' (boom boom)

Hi all, hope you all had a lovely weekend! I'm scheduling this post for Sunday as I'll be running a 10K in Aberdeen to raise money for Cancer Research UK that day - so wish me luck! 

today I have some swatches of Zoya Storm. I was SO. EXCITED. when I got my hands on this, I've wanted it for ages! However I was left a little cold. don't get me wrong, this is a stunning polish! It;s a nice thick black full of holo silver glitter particles which catch the light even indoors. But despite it's beauty I had a few issues with the polish iteself. Application was thick and heavy (which is why my hands are a mess in the pictures, I can only apologise!) and I'm thinking I might even add a drop of thinner before trying to wear it again. But wait, there is more! I don't know if you've picked up on this but Zoya's are very difficult to get in the UK, average cost new is around £10 GBP, and if you live in the UK you can't even order from the Zoya website! So all this means that I was more than a little disappointed when this started chipping. I was getting great big clumps coming off after 12 hours of wear! I reapplied patiently but every time I was getting chips. So frustrating! So that was my experience - stunning but doesn't last long, not worth the hassle to apply or the cost to buy it I'm afraid!
