(Inconsistant) Manicure Mondays is back featuring ZOYA's Indigo. Last week was a pretty dreadful week when it came to weather. Although it's supposed to be Summer here in Australia, it honestly felt like Autumn had already begun, so to compliment the weather I decided to whip out a darker polish.
I feel as though I'm becoming very lazy when it comes to changing my nail polish, as I used to change it probably at least twice a week (due to chipping/boredom). However, since starting my full time role I find myself being much more occupied and a lot less chipping occurring, therefore only changing my nail polish once a week. Which is a double edge sword when it comes to nail polish addicts such as myself who have massive amounts of nail polish that won't be used often, but it also means my nail polish will last much longer. But I digress.
The one thing that intrigued me about this nail polish is the stunning micro-glitter that can be seen in the bottle. Unfortunately, it doesn't transfer onto the nails which was a big disappointment in my books. ZOYA likes to describe it as "a dark indigo blue shimmer with a pinch of holographic microglitter. A dramatic polish that resembles the night sky" which I don't agree with at all. If anything it just looks like every other navy polish.
I do have a theory though, that if I didn't pile on the Seche Vite Top Coat that the micro-glitters would be more visible but I definitely need to test it out before giving it a green light. I've seen swatches from other bloggers and have noticed the glitter showing through so this might be a good theory.
Like with other ZOYA polishes, Indigo was a dream to apply. It went on smoothly and didn't streak or bubble. Although this was supposed to be a cream finish, I found it to be very glossy which didn't affect me at all as I love glossy polishes. Longevity wise, Indigo lasted the entire week without chipping but it did lose it's colour slightly.
I can definitely see myself wearing this nail polish on a regular basis during the Autumn/Winter season.
