Nail Polish Swatches: Zoya Davincia


This is such a pretty color, or rather it photographs much prettier than it actually is IMO.  I typically like deep wines as far as nail shades, and i think that’s why I get a little bored with them.  Davincia is a very safe, yet sexy color.  its perfect for an evening out, but I don’t think that it has that ‘melt you heart’ feel to it that say, Isla has.  It looks pretty much like another wine colored nail polish on the nail, reminds your of a glass of Cabernet or Merlot for sure.  The finish is glossy with some shimmer, not overload though.  I dries no faster or slower than any other polish, definitely doesn’t fall into the realm of “fast-drying” polishes though.

I have two coats of Davincia on, any more than that and it would be too thick. I used Seche Vite as my top coat and so far overall, no chipping, well only one on my thumb. I’m pretty rough w/ my nails, so I don’t blame the polish or top coat for that.  I do see a little receding my pinky nail, which you can see in the picture.  For some reason this happens to me pretty often though, not sure why.  Maybe, the receding is due to the application of a top coat too soon after polishing?  Anyhow, all in all, I really like Davincia and would definitely repurchase it.  I’m a big fan of Zoya polishes and have plenty more to swatch, review, and purchase.
