I feel like last week featured a lot of darker polishes and since we finally seem to be getting some spring (in the PNW anyway) let's break out some brighter colors! Speaking of brands I haven't featured in awhile-- Zoya!! I haven't posted about a Zoya in for-ev-er! But when I saw the photos of the Spring Petals collection, I knew I wanted them all. The colors felt very springy and cheerful and appealed to me so I actually bought the whole set during the preorder, which is something I rarely do with Zoya these days. When the polishes arrived and I opened them up, Zahara was the first one I immediately wanted to wear.
Zahara is described as a "brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect." Which, yes, that's pretty much the polish in a nutshell. The formula was just ok. Zahara is a bit on the thick side, while also being a little bit sheer. It's not necessarily difficult to work with, but it's the type of formula that could lend itself to looking uneven on the nail if you're not careful. I didn't really have any issues while applying it, but did have to use three coats to get the coverage I wanted. Even still, there is a hint of visible nail line, but it didn't really bother me.
I think Zahara is lovely and perfect for spring. I think the shimmer really elevates this polish and makes it fun-- I love how summery it is. Coral is definitely on of my favorite nail colors for spring and summer. I wish the formula was a bit better, but it's not awful by any means and definitely workable. This is definitely one of my favorites from the collection!
