Zoya- Skylar

Hi guys, I hope you are all having a great holiday weekend. We are camping in the NYS finger lakes, eating, drinking wine and relaxing with the family...what could be better? It is an issue that two of my favorite summer pastimes are at such odds with my nails: gardening and camping. Neither are kind to my hands, so my nails will most likely be kept short in the near future.
Anyways today I have another Zoya polish I just picked up, Skylar. I remember opening this and thinking that it was pretty close to Essie Smooth Sailing, but although they are in the same color family, they are different enough that I need both. I will post some comparison pictures here shortly.

Skylar is a dusty cornflower blue with shimmer that I believe is iridescent. The shimmer shifts from gold to pink to silver, and really makes this polish interesting. It applies like a creme. These pictures are with two coats and SV. I had significant shrinkage at the tips and needed touch up after one day. I will attribute that to the topcoat, but am only guessing at this. Skylar is one of those season-less colors that I feel works well with my skin tone, I will be keeping her handy...
