Nail of the Week: Raven

During Thanksgiving Zoya had a sale on their nail polishes. I had never used this brand of nail polish so I thought this was a good of time as any to try them out. Well, so far I am disappointed.

This is Raven:

Per the Zoya website Raven is described as:
"Black with subtle cool shimmer metallic"

Here is my manicure:
What is wrong with this picture?

There is no shimmer. It is BLACK. No shimmer, no glitter, not a hint of any sort of sparkle. Oh, and they state on their website that:
"Zoya is the longest wearing nail polish on natural nails"
Well, they are WRONG. At least this particular nail polish is not long wearing. I painted my nails a few hours before I went to bed one evening and by mid morning the following day while at work I noticed that it was already chipping. I should really be calling this nail of the day not week since it did not even last 24 hours.

See the Chips?
How disappointing. Hopefully the other Zoya polishes I got will be better quality.

Ciao!! xoxo

Aw, that's a bummer that it didn't take long for the polish to start chipping. That's really lame!
