Zoya Gloria Nail Lacquer

A “Glorias” Shade!

Yes, yes, I know, it is not longer the holiday season, but it is still winter and that is a good enough reason for me to review Zoya Gloria Nail Lacquer ($8 USD for 0.5 oz./15 ml.).  It is described as having “rose, mauve-pink and magenta foil particles with gold and subtle red metallic accents.  A delicate winter rose look made unique with a flashy foil finish.”  The different shimmer and glitter particles give this shade a lot of dimension that makes it suitable for any occasion.

I was a little concerned when I applied the first coat of Gloria on my nails because it had a thin texture, sheer opacity, and was a little streaky.  However, the second coat applied beautifully, evenly, and was fully opaque after the second coat.  I did apply a third coat to see if the opacity would deepen, but there was no difference between the second and third coast.  Zoya’s website states this color’s intensity as a 5 (1 = sheer – 5 = opaque).  Despite the ample amount of glitter in this polish, it dried to a nice glossy finish and did not feel gritty.

My experience with Zoya’s lacquers is they last at least seven days with just minor tip wear and no chipping.  Gloria wore well for the eight days I texted it.  However, I noticed the tip wear occurred sooner than normal and I noticed a tiny chip on my thumb on the fifth day of wear.  I used Zoya Anchor and Zoya Armor for my base and top coat.
