Zoya Julie Nail Lacquer

Zoya Julie Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) Is described as a “full-coverage, soft, wisteria purple metallic”. It’s a light-medium lavender with neutral undertones and a delicate white shimmer. Essie Bangle Jangle is darker and grayer, plus it is a cream. Essie Nice is Nice is pinker and a cream. MAC Little Girl Type is lighter and cooler-toned, and it is also a cream. Nubar Purple Aster is grayer and has very fine shimmer. Zoya Marley is also grayer and has very fine shimmer.

This shade applied beautifully–no streaking, bubbling, or pooling–and there was no trouble with brush strokes showing, despite its metallic finish. It was mostly opaque in two medium coats of polish, and the shimmer distributed evenly. The consistency of the formula wasn’t too thick or too thin (consistent with Zoya’s formula, which is slightly thicker than average).  Julie seemed to have a slightly quicker drying time compared to the average polish. I typically get a week of wear out of Zoya’s polish with minor tip wear but no chipping.

I love this color. It applied beautifully. I’m quickly becoming a massive Zoya fan. Their formulas are great, good price and I love that you can order almost any color online. Really great brand! Also the only one, for me, who got the textured polish right. Love the names, particularly this one. (My Mom’s name!)

Purchased this at Ulta a couple days ago – it’s a lovely shade. I’m wearing it now with coat of OPI’s which is witch to amp up the glitter. It went on easily and I love it.

This is the kind of metallic finish I LOVE. I have an OPI polish which is a pink/purple colour with a similar finish (Suzi something, if only I wasn’t too tired & lazy to go check lol). I’m so envious of your nails too Christine! They’re so pretty & long!
