NOTD: Zoya's Indigo
Ok I was so excited when this polish turned up - It's freaking DARK navy with multicoloured microglitter. While I love shades like these I usually find them horrific to apply as the dark polish stains my fingers around my nail in a way that looks like I got one of my cats to do my polish for me. Not so this time people, Indigo played very nicely and as such I adore her for that.
Now I love Zoya but I also call a spade a spade so while Indigo was a dream to apply it did not really have visible microglitter in it like the bottle suggests once it was applied. It is certainly no deal breaker but I was disappointed all the same.
My apologies about the return of the ugly yellow wall but it was the only way to show how dark this is but still navy in sunlight. This polish was opaque in one coat but I did 2 as usual. I also used my seche vite top coat as I have found it plays nicely with Zoya - who knew? Unfortunately I can't say how long this would have lasted as I broke 2 nails moving the coffee table after only 2 days and my Indigo mani could not be saved :(
Is Indigo your idea of winter polish perfection or are dark shades not on your radar?
