I couldn't get a good picture of this polish for some reason....the sun was being *too* bright. Huh, you don't hear that complaint every day. Except from nerdy dweebs who have pretensions of vampirism and are bleached pale from a lack of sunlight and too much COMPUTER. Oh wait, that's me :)
Seche Vite Base Coat
Zoya Freja - 3 coats
Seche Vite Top Coat
I've said many times that this is my favorite nail polish - and it still is! It's a gorgeous, classic gunmetal that was a fall/winter staple for me; I'll probably put this aside for spring/summer though. The formula of this polish is amazing, even on Zoya standards. These nails are already about a week old since I snapped these pics and absolutely no chipping :D Application is so easy too, super smooth, never patchy, and totally opaque after 2 coats, but 3 is perfect. This isn't just a flat gunmetal, there are subtle silver micro-glitters in that make this polish quite complex. The color is just so versatile and goes with everything, honestly I have no complaints about it. Some may find this color a little boring after the deluge of pastels and hot neon colors Zoya and Nubar have been flinging out, but to me gunmetal is like black and white - totally timeless and never out of style. Very much recommended and my #1 personal favorite.
