Nail of the Day: Zoya Kissy!

Today's NOTD is Kissy, a polish from Zoya's holiday 2011 collection Gems & Jewels. This polish has a beautiful red microshimmer base filled with pink, purple, and green bar glitter. In my opinion, this is the best holiday polish I've seen released this year. It's classic, festive, and unique all wrapped into one! I love that Zoya used bar glitter in this; it's something you don't see too often and really makes the polish stand out!

I'm including a second photo that is a little more blurred, which will help you get a better idea of what the polish actually looks like on. Camera lenses like to focus on individual glitters, taking away from the effect as a whole!

Beautiful, isn't it?! Additionally, this only needs two coats to be completely opaque! I did find that bar glitter is a little trickier to apply, because the little bars like to hang off the end of the nails as you paint them on, but overall the formulation wasn't too fussy.

Would you wear it?

  15. That is pretty, I just don't know how I feel about the bar glitter...I tend to like the round glitter better.

  23. Very different, but I really like that! The bar glitter does add that touch! My question is, how do you get this stuff off your nails?! I have a hard time getting glitter polishes off. Any suggestions?
