Guest Swatcher: Zoya Charla

Another amazing guest swatch from Soaper1 today: Charla, from Zoya’s new Sparkle collection. What a showstopper!  I’m a big fan of Zoya polishes, and the Sparkle collection is extra fantastic. I don’t often use the word unique, but I don’t know of another polish quite like them.

Here’s Soaper1′s take on Charla:

This is a gorgeous blue-green with blue-green and gold glitter. Since it’s fairly sheer, I used 4 coats — this picture was taken the morning after it was applied. It looks like there is a lot of tip wear, but that’s actually just shrinkage from my Seche Vite topcoat (I even wrapped the tips between coats 2 and 3). Despite the shrinkage, this wore really well for 4 days.

Zoya, Charla, swatches
Zoya polishes are “big three” free (formaldehyde, phthalate (DBP), and toluene free). They are $7 each.

    This is so drop dead gorgeous.

    Gorgeous color. I think you might get less shrink-back if you used Zoya’s Armor top-coat instead of Seche Vite. I’ve found it performs really well with the Zoya polishes, and you can use Hurry Up drops for the fast-dry.

    I’ve noticed that it’s tough to keep the tips from pulling back on many Zoya polishes, even when using the Armor system. Why Why???
