Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer
Tinsel Town, Here We Come
Zoya Electra Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “micro-fine diamond holographic glitter mixed with large silver holographic bar tinsel in a clear base.” It has holographic micro-glitter along with holographic bar glitter, which looks like silver tinsel on the nail, until you angle it just right or the light catches it, and then you get the holographic effect. I don’t have anything like this myself, and all I could think of was Zoya’s holiday collection last year, which featured pink, green, and blue horizontal bar glitter polishes.
Zoya lists the opacity as three, which is in the middle of sheer (one) and opaque (five). That’s a very accurate assessment; after two coats, it has a fair amount of coverage, but you’d really need three to get mostly opaque coverage. I layered it over Zoya Storm first, and then over Zoya Blaze. What I appreciated most about Electra was the fluidity and how well the bars dispersed across the nail. I didn’t feel like I had to push and pull the glitter into place. I typically see a full week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with Zoya’s formula.
