Zoya Chantal Nail Lacquer

Zoya Chantal Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “French vanilla cream.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium beige with a cream finish. It was fully opaque after two coats, and though the first coat was a little streaky, the second coat applied evenly and made everything look smooth. The consistency was slightly thick. MAC Pep Pep Pep (LE, $16.00) is peachier. MAC Muscle Tone (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. MAC Myth (LE, $16.00) is darker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Medium White (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Zoya Cho (P, $9.00) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Rue Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “boudoir blush cream.” It’s a light-medium, muted pink with subtle neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It was nicely opaque after two coats, and it applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was just a wee bit thick. Zoya Brigitte (P, $9.00) is darker. Illamasqua Pink Raindrops (LE, $17.00) has sparkle. Rescue Beauty Lounge Plie (LE, $20.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Taylor Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “light toffee cream.” It’s a light-medium beige with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It is not as warm-toned as compared to Chantal. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and the consistency was on the thicker side but did not pool along the edges. MAC Sandpiper (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. MAC Muscle Tone (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. MAC Hanginโ€™ Loose (LE, $16.00) is also sheerer. Zoya Cho (P, $9.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

I typically get a week of wear out of Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear and no chipping.
