I took a poll and you voted! This week’s Mani Monday is…
🔘 Base coat: @orly Bonder ($10 for .6 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/bhAgD)
🔘 Color: @zoyanailpolish Satin Rowan ($10 for .5 ounces – https://bit.ly/2ZgyoNd)
🤍 “…best described as a suede taupe cream in the exclusive Satin finish.”
🤍 Their “Satin formula is a hybrid between matte and glossy polishes…”
👍🏻 I love this color and finish! I was able to get full coverage in three (3) thin coats, but two (2) coats would have been sufficient if using a heavier hand. It also went on very smoothly.
👍🏻 I was nervous about not using a top coat, but today is eight (8) days into wear and I am super impressed with how little it has chipped. I did yard work on Saturday and that did a number on them, but before that, they were holding up really well!
👎🏻 My only gripe with the satin finish is that it shows scratches, even once completely dry. You can’t see them from afar, but up close, they’re pretty evident.
🔘 Top coat: @zoyanailpolish advises not to add a top coat to its satin formulas because it would change the finish, so there is no top coat on my nails.
I plan on attempting some super simple nail art next, so make sure to check my Stories soon for another poll!
