Accidentally Warts

I'm not sure what I was thinking here. My brain is sometimes weird. But I had this matte Zoya sitting in my untried bin, and I had to just do something with it...and of course glitter. I don't always make the best decisions. But if you like glittery on.

Colors Used
Octopus Party The Royal Tannenbaums
Zoya Savita

I can't say I'm super crazy about the Zoya. I've got a grudge against them anyway, but I like matte polish and I found this on clearance at Ulta...and I had a gift card so it hardly counted as buying it. Every other matte polish I have, and all of the matte toppers I have, tend to set up quickly. They go from glossy to matte in under five minutes, on average. (maybe I should do a video comparing...) This one seems to take a lot longer than average. For these pictures, to give you an idea, the dots I made had already set up well enough for top coating by the time I got around to photographing (maybe 10 minutes) but the Zoya polish still looked kinda...gummy. I dunno if this is a proper matte finish or a waxed finish. I wanted to go to bed, so I ended up taking this off. Sleep is more important than polish...but just barely.

I don't think this is a fail nail...I just think its a little...weird. Not bad weird, just weird. They can't all be winners, I guess. At least its sparkly?


  1. LOL @ glitter warts! You even make your alleged failicures look good so there's that.

    1. d'awwwww. I think something is wrong with my head because I am the only one who thinks this is a total fail.

      pics came out good though.

  2. I love it!!! But I am a huge fan of "unusual" nail art. And also I generally agree with your aesthetic, maybe you just think it's a fail because the brain image doesn't match the life image. Oh...and why a grudge against Zoya?

    1. The way that Zoya handles their PR stuff is a little...unprofessional. So I dont buy it unless its on sale!

      We usually do see the arty stuff the same...maybe I'm just being hyper critical this time.

  3. I love it!!
    Not a total fail, makes me want to use mine! I also have that in my untried =)
