Zoya’s Tomoko

I tend to favor the neutral shades of textured polish: London, Dahlia, and Godiva get more love from me than Chyna, Miranda, Liberty, or Destiny. I'm not exactly sure why that is, but it may have to do with my feeling that textured + sparkle + bright color is Just Too Much Stuff Going On.

Tomoko is the cool version of Godiva: beige base rather than cream; silvered highlights rather than gold.

As with all of Zoya's textured polishes, you'll need to wait longer between coats or your manicure will take over 24 hours to completely cure - during which time it will be more vulnerable to dings, dents, smearing, and general contact damage. I have trouble when I try to remove this with a cotton ball, but if I get some of those cosmetic pads, thoroughly wet them, lay those atop my fingernails for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then wipe off…I'm able to easily remove this textured polish. (Or any polish, actually.)
