Hi there~

I hope you're all doing well.
As told you in my previous article, I got some samples from Nail de Royale, an online shop where you can buy some great nail polishes (Zoya, Nubar, Essie, OPI, Orly, CND,...) and some cool nail art products.

So today, I'll present Lolly (Zoya). This polish is from Zoya Mod Mattes Collection (Summer 2011). This is a "bold, saturated medium magenta pink cream with a velvety matte finish" according to Zoya.

I must addmit I've never been a matte lover but this may be because I've never tried any matte before (only semi matte which I do like very much). But, you know, I've never been really attracted to it...
However, I've completely changed my mind since I've tried the lovely Lolly. It looks really cool on your nails. I think you have to try matte polish to really enjoy them. I think I'm hooked now... ;D
The final look is really smooth and soft when you touch it. But the application was a little difficult. Out of 10 nails, I had to redo 3. I used a base coat on every nails but then on the 3 nails I did again, I skipped the base coat step and application seemed a little easier.
On the other hand, it's been 3 days since I'm wearing Lolly and still no chips. So the lasting power is not bad at all for a matte polish.

I then also added some stamping. I used Konad image plate m69 and Sarah (Zoya) to stamp. Sarah is bright shimmery red. You can see its swatch here.

And a small add-on on my Nail de Royale package.

As I said, they sell nail polishes and nail art products. I showed you the purple glitters and green stars in a previous post. As suggested by Serendipitously from Mommy Does Her Nails, the purple glitters might be great to use to do a franken polish. I might have to try want to try this!

And some words about the nail art brush. I've tried it and it's perfect to creat nice and pretty nail arts. The brush is easy to use and really thin so that you can draw very thin lines very easily.

There is a great variety of colors and each bottle costs $2.99 (7.5 mL).

  9. Lolly is the only Zoya matte I don't own and I think I need to remedy that asap!

  10. I will admit, I'm not a big matte polish fan. Rarely will I buy a matte polish as I have a mattifying topcoat and will use that if I want a matte look. BUT, I'm very drawn to the design you did over the matte. I think that makes it much nicer.

  11. thanks to everyone! <3

    Pixie polish: I must also admit I harly ever buy matte polishes but I really like how Lolly looks...maybe I'm slowly changing my mind about matte polishes! I think the final look is a bit different if you use a matte top coat over a regular polish or if you use a matte polish...
