Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is in honor of my birthday week. Sapphire is my birthstone, so I chose blue to wear today and probably most of the next week.
Zoya Muse is a gorgeous teal blue base with golden shimmer and iridescent glitter. Formula is excellent. It builds up very well, but I can still see my nail line with 3 coats. It does dry very smooth though, so only 1 coat of topcoat is needed. I “tested” this out last night over my manicure from yesterday (a light lavender) and it was a much lighter blue base layered over that, so this is a bit more teal than I was hoping for, but it is so gorgeous, I will overlook that. (I’ll put a photo at the end showing the difference when it’s layered over the light purple).

Outside in the shade (true to life color)…
Inside with my orchid (I should give that flower a name, suggestions in the comments please!)…
Quick comp showing Zoya Muse, 2 coats, layered over yesterday’s manicure (on thumb) and the rest of my fingers at 3 coats alone with topcoat. Look how much of a lighter blue you can get with the layering (excuse my messy thumb, I didn’t clean it up)…
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
