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! 


  1. It looks so beautiful! Shame you wasn't impressed by it though :(! Disappointing when that happens isn't it xx

    1. It is a shame, especially when it really is a stunning polish! B xx
