Zoya Ultra Glitter Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Haaaaaaaaayyyyy party people!

I feel the need to tell you that I am really not as chipper as I sound in the morning. In fact, I am SOOOO not a morning person, though I get up at 5:10 am for work every day. I am much more chipper when I write, than in person ;-)

Today I’ve got Zoya’s new Ultra Glitter collection. These are SUPER glittery and blingtastic! BUT not as blingtastic as they would have been if the sun had been out when I took the pics, sorry!

The formula on these is on the thick side because they are so jam packed with glitter. When applying wait a few minutes in-between coats otherwise the polish tends to glob on the tip of the nail. They do have that “chunky” texture that a lot of glitters have also, but that mostly goes away after a nice top coat. Peep ‘em out!

Zoya Luna
Luna

Luna is a pale dusty grey-ish polish with silver glitter. This one is my favorite, I love it. It totally says “winter” and “snow” to me, even though I never, ever see snow in real life. This was three coats.

Zoya Astra
Astra

Astra is pale red/pink color with pink glitter. This one is very appropriate for the holiday season, so pretty! This was three coats.

Overall I like this collection. They are really cool, and would look great layered over other colors as well. If you like glitter, then you’ll love these!

You can find these on their website here, and they retail for $7.00 each.

    I get up about the same time as you and I do a much better job of sounding chipper in email and on the computer than I do in voice. Blah, mornings!

    These are so pretty! I really love Nova. It seems like such a different pink than I usually see. I may have to get these, as much as I hate trying to remove glitter!

    Thanks for your awesome pics!

    How was removal with these?

    I just took off 3 coats of a cg glitter and OH MAN SO ANNOYING. I don’t wear glitter a lot for that very reason.

      Hi Meghan,

      Removal can be a bitch, I’m not gonna lie. What I do is this (and I plan on doing a video tutorial soon on it). Soak a cotton ball in remover. Place it on nail and leave it on for like 20-30 seconds. Then do one swipe down nail to tip and use a separate cotton ball for any remaining glitter. also make sure to use a separate cotton ball for each finger otherwise the glitter will spread around all over your fingers.

    ohhhh we kinda like astra!
    you know to meghan, if you get OPI expert touch remover, it will remove the hardest of glitters with about 2 swipes. I love that stuff, and your nails don’t peel.

      Hi chritsi,

      You are so right, that’s what I use. OPI’s Expert Touch rocks, and it’s not harsh and smells like lavender!

    I really like Nova :) guess I will get it. But all of them look nice on you. Today I woke up at six and it was horrible. Don´t understand how you do it :)

      Hi AllYouDesire,

      Honestly I don’t know how I do it either. My only motivation is that I want to get home early. I commute 1 1/2 hrs each way, so I like leaving work at 3:30.

    Love these. I am lucky that my local drugstore chain (Shoppers’ Drug Mart) sells presoaked felt pads in packages. I always use these for glitter, and they work like a charm – it takes only a couple of swipes to clean each nail. I wonder if I should set up a website to distribute these to all of the international nail polish fanatics….:)

    Lovely and glittery are the best! They all look so pretty on you. I love the last two. I feel like I have enough silver glitters. The pink and purple are ones I don’t have any of. I just may have to buy them.
