Zoya’s Alicia

Zoya’s holographics are…mmm…kind of hit-or-miss, in my opinion. They’re often scattered rather than linear holographic, and sometimes there’s barely any shimmer in them. This color looks more like a multicolor-silver microglitter than a holographic polish. I needed three coats to get coverage that wasn’t completely even, and the polish is almost semisheer. That said, I didn’t have problems with the polish’s durability, and removal was not an endless round of “scrub the cuticles again because there’s STILL GLITTER.” So that’s good.

I got this polish during the 2017 Earth Day sale, so I effectively paid $5 for this bottle of polish - which is just one dollar lower than Zoya’s per-bottle price used to be, when I started buying it. (And yes, you kids, Get Off My Lawn.)
