Zoya Suvi

Zoya Suvi


Hi everyone!

Today I’m showing you the nail polish that was the base for my Christmas lights mani. As I’ve already mentioned it’s Zoya Suvi, a shimmery emerald green. Despite such a dark colour Zoya Suvi is actually quite sheer. At first coat you only get a smokey hint of colour, not even green. Only at second coat you see the real colour. Unfortunately it was impossible for me to get any coverage on my tips. Even sealing them with an extra coat it was impossible to get a layer thick enough to be opaque there.

Two coats, no top coat in the pics.

Ciao a tutti!

Oggi vi mostro lo smalto che ho usato come base per la mia nail art “Luci di Natale”. Come anticipato si tratta di Zoya Suvi, un verde smeraldo shimmer. Purtroppo, nonostante il colore così scuro, la coprenza è pessima. Alla prima passata resta solo un’ombra scura, più color fumo che realmente verde. Alla seconda passata si ottiene il colore finale, ma personalmente mi è stato impossibile coprire le punte delle unghie. Anche “sigillandole” non sono riuscita a formare uno strato tale da ottenere un colore pieno.

In foto sono due passate senza top coat.

In all honesty I expect a much greater quality from a Zoya nail polish, both because of the brand itself and for its price tag, which is extremely expensive over here. Unfortunately I’ve been disappointed so many times already by this brand I just stopped buying from them. I am just going through the bottles I already own and try them and keep only the ones I really like. I know this might sound unpopular because there are so many people using and loving Zoya, but this brand eventually doesn’t like my nails chemistry or viceversa.

I guess that’s it for today. Let me know if you like this shade and if you can think of a cheaper alternative to it! And are you a Zoya fan?

In tutta franchezza da uno smalto Zoya, col prezzo che ha, con la fama del brand, mi aspetto sempre grandi cose, invece sono già tante le volte che sono rimasta delusa dai loro smalti. So di non essere popolare nel dirlo, so che Zoya ha tantissime utilizzatrici fedeli, ma evidentemente questo brand e le mie unghie proprio non vanno d’accordo. Ormai non compro più loro smalti da anni, ma sto cercando pian piano di provare tutti quelli che possiedo in modo da tenere solo quelli con cui mi trovo veramente bene.

Per oggi mi fermo qui. Fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate di questo colore, se vi vengono in mente smalti simili magari di brand più economici, e se siete fan di Zoya a differenza mia!

  4. It looks gorgeous, but so sheer. Too bad that it is as watery as it looks in the bottle.

    1. I have a few bottles I liked but they are less than the ones that disappointed me.

  6. You wear green polish very well. Not everyone can do that. It's too bad about the formula on this one.
