Zoya Zuza - pretty little underthings!

Hey guys, quick post to say hello this evening and show you what I wore under Orly Mermaid Tale - Zoya Zuza. Zuza is from Zoya's Summer Surf Collection and is described on Zoya's website as a "deep, saturated, oceanic turquoise with gold and silver metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish."

Umm, can we say gorgeous!? I know we've all seen swatches of this beautiful shade by now so there's no need for me to gush, but seriously! Zuza is a silvery shimmer, foil-y, turquoise masterpiece. Pigmentation is so intense a single coat is sufficient with good application.

I thought this polish dried rather quickly so manipulation on the nail wasn't really an option. I recommend as few brushstrokes as possible or else it'll get gummy on you. No topcoat in these photos.

Now, for the not so nice bits about Zuza. This beautiful bitch stains like a mother! Something else I'm sure you've all heard already lol. I have to admit I thought to myself that the staining wouldn't be that bad but I was sorely mistaken. Interestingly enough, I didn't put any glitter on my left hand and the staining was only half as bad. Hmm, let's think on that while checking out my stained nails...

No bueno! Luckily, these stains weren't too difficult to remove. I just used hand soap and scrubbed well with my nail brush.

Annnd one more thing! After my order of China Glaze neons and a few miscellaneous Essie's arrive I will be on a polish moratorium (until On Safari and Bohemian collections are released to etailers - I know, I have no will power to resist). Why? Well, because I bought myself a new bag this weekend. And she is a beaut! And I caught a major deal. And I haven't bought myself a new bag in almost 4 years. I'm rationalizing, can you tell? lol

Here's my eye candy, er arm candy! Ugh, I die! <3
