I received this from the lovely Polished and Inspired when we met up in May! Thank you again for this polish, it’s so “me”! 😀
With the summer days winding down, I thought this was a nice summery shade to wear before the heat died down!
I’m a fan of how Zoya describes each of their nail polish shades and even provides standard information for each:
Meadow by Zoya can be best described as a frosty, golden peach with a copper flash. This golden, flesh-toned shade is a perfect sparkling nude for warm skin tones!
Color Family – Nude
Finish – Metallic
Intensity – 4 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Tone – Warm
This is very helpful especially for people ordering online. I wish all nail polish companies did this!
I’d say Zoy’a description is pretty accurate, although I would say the copper flash isn’t just an intermittent thing – it appears quite strongly at all angles / lighting conditions.
I was worried about streaks due to the frosty nature of the polish and the first coat was streak-city:
But it pretty much smoothed out in the second coat, phew:
The polish applied flawlessly and dried very quickly.
If you Google this polish, there are photos online where the polish looks almost pink-toned – for me, this polish leans much more golden peached toned and in some lights, I feel it’s almost straight-up coral. It’s so pretty!
Here’s what it looks like after a full week of wear:
It looks ok if you don’t inspect too closely. Sadly, this polish does chip similar to my experiences with Zoyas before – I used my usual Orly Bonder as base and Poshe as top coat. There were noticeable chipping / peeling on my left middle finger, and my right thumb:
The chipping occurred on day 5 so it wasn’t terrible. 😦 Overall, I’ve noticed that Zoya polishes seem to not wear as long for me and shows tip wear much faster.
Here’s this week’s random object shot:
Gorilla Glue! I happened upon this in our “crap drawer” which was a goldmine for all things random. I don’t recall buying the Gorilla Glue or if we ever used it but we have it for “just in case!” 😉
I’m sure every household has a drawer like this where random batteries, membership cards, paperclips etc go to live. Tell me what you have in your crap drawer! 😛
