Zoya Meg Nail Lacquer
Meg-a Metallic Shine and Finish!
Green is one of those colors that makes me smile and, of course, reminds me of spring. Zoya Meg Nail Lacquer ($8 USD for 0.5 oz./15 ml.) is described as a “light yellow-toned mermaid green with heavy gold and silver metallic shimmer and a sparkling foil finish. A light and fresh looking green with added sparkle and shine.” To me, it looks like a subdued lime green with silver and gold micro glitter and a foiled, metallic finish. At first glance, this color looks slightly warm, but the mixture of gold and silver glitter with this light green adds dimension, making it suitable for all skin tones.
Given the texture is neither thick nor thin, Meg applied evenly and opaquely in two coats. Zoya’s website states this color’s intensity as a 5 (1 = sheer – 5 = opaque). If you are in a hurry, you could get away with applying one thick coat. Although application of this color was effortless, removal was a little more difficult. Nail polishes with ample amounts of glitter require a little more patience and a little more remover.
My experience with Zoya’s lacquers is they last at least seven days with just minor tip wear and no chipping. Meg wore well for the seven days I tested it. I did notice a minor chip on my finger after the forth day, but the rest of my fingers only displayed tip wear after seven days. I used Zoya Anchor and Zoya Armor for my base and top coat.
