Zoya had a promo a couple months ago (what else is new) and I thought I would test out a color from a collection that seemed made for me. ("Feel").
The color wore very well, this is after a couple days' wear. However, application was a bit gummy.
(top and third - St. Lucia, second and bottom - Kendal)
Sadly, I realized I had a fairly close polish in Essie St. Lucia Lilac.
- Essie's formula is better.
- Essie's has an invisible shimmer (which you can see in the bottle but not on the nail, I'm convinced this is a way to get the polish to apply a little more smoothly).
- Zoya's polish is much dustier and is a touch pinker.
This was a toughy since I like the color of Kendal better but the formula of St. Lucia Lilac better. Which would you pick?
They're JUST different enough to keep both, but I have set a goal to get myself to under 300 polishes so I had to get one of them and I went with last in, first out.
