One of my goals with getting my brain all sorted is to take better care of my body, too. For as long as I can remember I’ve just been a “shower, throw clothes on” kind of person. Never really cared what my hair looked like or what my skin did. Then again, I never had to worry about my skin. I’ve never had pimples, nor is it especially oily or dry. I’ve always wondered if this was because I never even started using skin products… but I’m sure that’s not true. In any case, I’m in no hurry to start putting on gobs of makeup or creams or whatever, but I admittedly do have some problem areas.
Number one is my nails.
I’ve nibbled the skin around my nails and my cuticles since… gosh, I don’t even remember when I started. Regardless, it got to a point where I often had to put bandaids on because I was bleeding so much. I’ve gotten better over the past few years but I still do it and it’s still kind of a problem. So I started painting my nails and putting cuticle lotion on.
It’s become, uh, a bit of an obsession.
This “Shorties” feature thing is going to be me saying what I think about various beauty things. It’ll probably be mostly nail polish since that’s what I have the most of (well, that’s really the only “beauty” product I own, period). I’m hoping it’ll help me keep up with my… caring for me thing. And stuff.
Today’s Shorty is Zoya Zuza.
Man, my nails look terrible. But look at how pretty the nail polish is! Squee!
The pictures don’t really do it justice since they’re crappy phone pictures. I’ll be taking better pictures with my actual camera from here on but this time I didn’t have a way to get them from the camera to a PC (netbook was indisposed). So for this post you’ll have to deal with crappy pictures.
Application for Zoya Zuza was… eh, it was okay. I’m not the best at putting it on anyway, so polish usually has to be really good at… being put on in order for me to do a good job. I did a decent job with this one. It was a bit hard to get even coverage, and it pulled a lot when I was putting the first coat on, but the second coat went on fairly decently. So far it hasn’t chipped (it’s been on for two days), but there is a bit of tip wear.
Also holy moly I love this color so much.
Final verdict? Eh, I’d put it on again. Someday. Three and a half disembodied heads out of five.
