30 Days of Colour [Day 1: Blue] Zoya Liberty
April is here! And that means it's time for the 30 Days of Colour to start! The 30 Days of Colour is a month-long swatching challenge that's going to (hopefully) help me get back into the swing of blogging after my break, and also help me get to swatching more of my collection! I'm pretty excited about it. :)
The first theme in the challenge is a blue polish and I've decided to go with Zoya Liberty. This is mainly because I just made a huge order of Zoya PixieDusts and I really feel like I should try more of the ones I already have before they get here!
Let's take a better look!
Zoya Liberty is a polish I saved from the sale bin last year and it was originally from the Summer 2013 PixieDust line. It's a gorgeous ocean blue matte textured glitter polish. I used three coats to get full opacity and it dried fairly quickly (like most textured polishes).
You can see how packed with glitter Liberty is in this macro. I know some people dislike textured polishes but I honestly can't get enough of them. I love that slight rough feeling!
And for fun here's a shot of it with two layers of top coat. The glitter really comes through in a gorgeous way with that added gloss!
I'm definitely happy that I pulled this polish out and now that I've used it I'm thinking of fun beach-y and ocean-y designs I could use it for. Ultimately I preferred it in textured form but one thing I really like about textured (and matte) polishes is that you really have two different polishes in one - just add top coat!
Here's a look at the other fills that have been completed for the 'Blue' theme:
And here's a look at the rest of the fills coming up throughout the month:
So that's it for day one of my 30 Days of Colour! Do you prefer Liberty with or without top coat? I'd love to hear what you think. :)
Thanks for visiting!
