A Zoya A Day - Gigi and Lux

Hey Friends

Today on the blog we meet Gigi and Lux.  These are the last polishes I have to share with you until I pick up the Café Creams and the Metallic Dreams collections, probably next month. I picked up Lux from a destash a few months ago.

Lux by Zoya can be best described as a rose quartz sparkle textured PixieDust - Textured with mega hex iridescent particles.

Both of these are stunning, Gigi is a very deep pink with a red undertone, good formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats, Gigi also stamps.

Lux I picked up from a destash a while ago, I do keep an eye out for older Zoya I dont own but no-one seems to want to part with any of the lower ZP number, I have pretty much everything from about the 500 mark on.

Lux has a great formula, no running or pooling and I did two coats, maybe I could have done a third.....

The last pics are of my current manicure, I finally succumbed to the reflective glitter, I decided on Fancy Gloss Rainbow Stardust, this is such an interesting polish, I started with two coats of Unt Ready for Takeoff peel off basecoat because glitter, then I did two coats of RS, finally one coat of Barry M Plumpy Topcoat, interestingly this does remind me of a Pixie Dust or Liquid Sand polish, this looks like a dark grey polish in normal light or sunlight, its only when you hit it extremely bright light i.e. flash from my camera phone that bam out comes the sparkle.
