There are so many gorgeous nail polishes these days, it’s hard to keep a favorite for long. But right now, mine is Danni from Zoya. I picked it up during their 3 for $12 special back in January, but I just got around to trying it a few days ago.
I was expecting a lot of sparkle, but instead Danni provides a lovely shimmer. Frankly, for me, the shimmer is much more wearable and so much easier to apply and remove.
This shade of purple – a medium, Easter egg purple – is gorgeous, not too dark, not too light. The shade is so versatile, it can almost be considered a neutral.
The polish itself is on the thinner side. I applied two fast drying coats, and it was dry in a flash. I applied it over my usual Revlon base coat. Because I was in a rush, instead of using a topcoat and Orly Sec ‘n Dry, I just applied the Sec ‘n Dry. Mistake. Because I haven’t been wearing my gloves to wash dishes since I put on this polish, I am seeing a little tip wear after 3 days. Using a separate topcoat in addition to the Sec ‘n Dry really is a must for me.
Zoya is one of my favorite polish brands. It’s cruelty-free and 5-free: no phthalates, toluene, camphor, formaldehyde or formaldehyde resin. It’s widely available on zoya.com, at Ulta and ultra.com, amazon.com, and at select salons. The bottle size is 0.5 fl. oz/15 ml. Although I paid $4 for this polish, it is typically priced around $9. Made in the US.
