REVIEW of Zoya Lacquer in Kerry With SWATCHES

Hello chickadees!

I'm bringing you a review of a somewhat unusual color for summer... Zoya Kerry. Why am I reviewing this Summer 2013 polish now in July of 2014? Well, I picked it up in one of my recent little Zoya hauls. They just keep getting me with those promo codes. I've seen some interesting nail art looks with Kerry and I'm excited to try it out once I get the video thing going. Yes, I know I keep bringing that up. You should know me by now. This is what I do. Where is the novel I keep saying I'm going to write? I don't know. What were we talking about again?

Color: Zoya Kerry is a yellow gold glittery foil polish. There's not much more to it than that. Imagine a metalllic gold foil polish but remove all the bronze until you get a bright yellow and that is Kerry. It's a bold, blinding shade and a nice alternative to all the basic gold polishes that get released season after season.
Formula: The formula is a little thick.
Application: When I applied the first coat of this polish, my immediate thought was... it's so sparkly, I'm going to die. The polish went on very smoothly without any drag though I did have to even it out a bit. The second coat also needed to be evened out a bit but again, there were no issues. At three coats, this polish was still not 100% opaque (yes, I know I'm an obsessive perfectionist) but it is very nearly opaque and besides, you can't tell with all the glitter blinding you.
Wear: I wore this polish for three days. I experienced very minimal tip wear in that time but it was only three days. I just felt like removing the polish because my nails were a bit too long. It was a little tough to remove the polish but not impossible. It was no more difficult that removing other foils or glitters. The problem is the lingering glitter. You can get all of it off eventually but it takes some patience.

CONCLUSION: Yes, I would recommend this polish. It doesn't have a perfect formula but you shouldn't have any issues with application. I realize that yellow gold glitter won't be flattering on everyone's skin tone but I liked the slightly unconventional look of it.
