I was feeling ill, and think I had a little fever today, so I had to do something quick and easy. So foil it is. I had ignored very many polishes for too long, but had luckily decided on Zoya Jem, and was already wearing it.
2 days later: I'm well now, and noticed that I had added the wrong inlinkz, so I'm glad I set the blog post back to draft.
Jem is from Zoya's Smoke and Mirrors Collection Fall 2011. So I was surprised that I had to add thinner. The color reminds me of dark, very ripe sweet cherries. I like this dark purple shimmer very much, but after I bought it, I found Zoya on the "NO- list", and that's why I just couldn't wear it. But Zoya is now on the cruelty- free list! :-)

This is a gold nail foil that looks kind of holographic. I bought it from KKCenterHk. The glue was a gift from last year, when they let me try their silver nail foil.
I used Picture Polish Revolution as top coat, because I had heard that it was supposed to work over foil. It didn't dull the nail foil, but it didn't prolong the weartime either. I didn't do much before going back to bed, and I could already see that the foil had started to wear off on the tips.
Do you know a top coat that works over foil? Have you tried any water based top coats?
