Recently got on the matte nails scene with Zoya polish in Posh and Dovima. I tried Posh first, because the swatches of it that I saw on other blogs made me really intrigued. Just like others have said, these matte polishes dry FAST. You have to work quickly and accurately. I tried to get enough polish on the brush to cover one entire nail before moving on to the next. By the time I was on my third finger, the first one had already dried. Still, I am LOVING this polish!! The color is soooo classy and the matte finish is definitely different from the shiny polishes I usually have on. I am liking matte so much that yesterday I got the Sephora by OPI matte polish in Domestic Goddess (purple). Still have to try that and Dovima! I was planning on taking off Posh after 2 days and trying on Dovima because of how other people were saying that the wear of the polish is weak, but surprisingly, after 5 days of wear, there are barely any chips on my nails. The only real difference is that the matte finish is a little less so, probably due to the natural oils in my hands, shampooing, and dishwashing. Otherwise, so far so good!
This is a picture from the first day of wearing it, with two coats, no base/top coat (not allowed when you're wearing matte polishes!!)
On another note, my roommate got a puppy recently. She's so cute!!! Her name is Gracie and she's a Yorkshire terrier, I think. She's tiny but deceivingly energetic. Meet Gracie! :)
She's smiling!! :D

Happy Monday, everyone!
