Zoya Natty Nail Lacquer
Let’s Get Chatty About Natty!
Zoya Natty Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “smoky deep steel blue.” It’s a subdued, smoky navy blue with a cream finish. Chanel Blue Rebel is very similar–perhaps a touch smokier. China Glaze First Mate is richer, less subdued. Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm is bluer, less smoky.
The color is fully opaque after two coats, and it covers evenly and smoothly. It had a good balance between thick and thin, so it applied fluidly across the nail without dragging or pooling along the sides. The drying time seemed about average, neither quick nor slow, and had a semi-glossy finish when dry (without a top coat). I typically get a full week of wear with Zoya with very minor tip wear but no chipping, with or without a base/top coat.
