Zoya Storm Nail Lacquer
A Galaxy of Color
Zoya Storm Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full coverage, holiday black with a high concentration of micro-fine diamond holographic glitter.” It’s a rich, inky black cream with holographic sparkle. The shimmer and sparkle look multi-sized to me, and almost like flecks for some of the colors. While it seems similar to Illamasqua Creator, this shade doesn’t have any of the holographic shimmer, so it is just silver sparkle and shimmer–the effect is similar but if you really want the holographic aspect, you won’t find it there. The same is true with NARS Night Breed. Cult Nails I Got Distracted is closer, but it has large green-teal flecks as well.
This shade was fully opaque after two coats, and it applied beautifully! The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so I didn’t experience any bubbling or pooling of the polish along the edges of my nails. There’s plenty of shimmer, and it disperses and spreads evenly. I typically get a week of wear with Zoya’s polish with no chipping and just minor tip wear.
