Zoya Carly, Satinified

Good morning!!  This'll be a short post (as in, less talking from me, lol) because I've already worn this polish and talked about it.  It's Zoya Carly, the gorgeously unsummery dark purple foil from this summer's Surf collection.  Simona from Light Your Nails and Christina from Amoki's Corner both mentioned how chic Carly would look mattified, and I had to agree.  Here it is with my Essence Soft Touch topper (I'm really starting to love this thing!).  This is two coats Carly, one coat Soft Touch.




I'm totally in love with how this looks.  You know how mattes tend to chip way earlier than glossy polishes (or so I'm told)?  This topcoat seems to be the exception.  The only reason I redid my mani from yesterday was because I wasn't happy with my paint job and it didn't make for very nice photos, lol.
So there you go!  Thank you for reading, have an awesome day. <3

  2. Looks awesome! I am still wearing mine today and wish I could have thrown on a matte top coat to change it up a bit:)

    1. Thanks, Tara! Definitely check it out! I think I got mine on sale for, like, a buck 50, so it's been more than worth it. ;)

    1. Doesn't it? A gal on my fb observed that it looks a little like Harlow.

  6. Ooh! It looks so pretty mattified! I tried to resist the matte polish trend, but it's growing on me.

    1. Haha, me, too! It is futile, though, this resistance. :)

  9. Yay! I was right: it looks awesome!!!! I love it! And I love using the Essence soft touch top coat. Since I've got it I stopped using the matte one. This one is so much better, kinda satin instead of matte, I prefer it!

    1. I don't even know what a full on matte looks like compared to this one, but I really like this satinified thing, too.

  11. Oh pretty!!!
    And it reminds me a lot of Nabi matte which I had and stained my nails terribly! I appreciate Zoya much more then nabi so I can't help but wondering if it didn't stain your nails?

    1. It didn't stain at all, but did leave behind some of that trademark Zoya shimmer residue.

    1. It's amazing. The only reason I took it off was so I could satinify my other Zoya Surfs, lol.
