Zoya’s Zuza

Remember how I mentioned that Reagan was a surprise? Well, Zuza is the surprise from the Surf collection. Sadly, it's not an entirely pleasant surprise. This color is a very intense bold aqua-green. It's a bit too vivid for my personal preferences. And it's a glass fleck, which means it's unsuitable for nail stamping. (Well…into every life a little rain must fall. Mine is aqua-colored.)

The application was a little bit uneven on my middle fingernail, but I think that was me more than the polish. Application on all the other fingers was fine, even my thumb with that ridiculous ridgeline that never grows out. Dry time was about average for Zoya polishes. I just don't love this shade. (However, I am in love with its creme counterpart, Wednesday. Wednesday is like a slightly more intense, cooler version of Bevin. Zuza is like a cheaply-painted pool - one where, instead of using that soothing blue, they tried to go for Caribbean…and got the color mixture wrong. Aside from the color and my personal reaction to it, this polish is just fine. If you're interested in this shade, Zuza's a great addition. It just won't be staying in my collection. (It's headed for <a href=”” target=“_blank”>Sirvinya</a>, in the next Box of Awesome. I asked her if she wanted any colors from the Zoya promo in April, she said she wanted Zuza, and I said: “You want that color? Take the bottle I bought, I've only used it once…” It is Not My Personal Favorite.)
