Zoya Oceane And Selene: A Nail Art Comparison

Zoya Oceane and Selene are both lovely but I thought it might be nice for you to see them side by side. I started with a base of Oceane and then added a stripe of Selene.

Layering With Sally Hansen

I picked up Sally Hansen Sea-ing Stars on a whim and tried it out right before an event. It ended up being way too sheer to wear alone so I saved the day by topping it with my beloved Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle polish. I'll always love crackles!

LVX Indigo Bleu

LVX Indigo Bleu is from their Spring 2013 collection. This is my first polish from LVX. Here's a little about their brand directly from their website.
LVX brings you luxury and fashion without compromise. We are dedicated to launching the hottest collections for each season by translating the top runway colors based on emerging trends in high fashion.
Our philosophy is to fuse high fashion with nail color. We determine the top trends by closely studying thousands of runway presentations from renowned designers. Our colors are hand selected to be the top colors of the season.
Our long lasting, chip resistant and gel-like formula is free of the 5 toxic and harsh chemicals found in most common nail lacquer formulas. LVX products are formulated without the use of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene and Camphor. We are devoted to providing you with top quality, socially responsible and vegan-friendly luxury products without compromising quality, durability and finish. 
 LVX nail lacquer is cruelty free. All products are produced in the U.S.A
LVX Indigo Bleu is a gorgeous super dark purple with blue undertones shown here at 2 easily applied coats. A very lovely color that never looks black even in low light.

However, LVX bills itself as a luxury brand and the polishes retail for $16. If I'm paying that much for a polish I want a nice bottle and brush and this one just doesn't cut it. I personally don't like pop off caps and the actual brush handle is stubby and ridged. The actual brush is cut very straight and I found the whole thing a bit difficult to use. I have other gorgeous blues that cost half the price and have nicer brushes.

Sally Hansen Slick Black

Sally Hansen Slick Black is from their Triple Shine collection. It's shown here at 3 coats since it was still quite streaky at 2 which I don't expect from darker shimmer polishes. Slick Black ends up looking like the darkest midnight blue in the nail with flashes of silver, very pretty!

Zoya Selene

Zoya Selene is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun. I barely needed a second coat and it applies easily. Selene is a very pretty teal and it practically glows in low light but it's not quite my style. My boyfriend Will loves polishes like this for his toes though!

Zoya Oceane

Zoya Oceane is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun, shown here at two coats. You have to be careful of dragging and brushstrokes with this one. Oceane is very pretty and practically glows in low light but it's not quite my style. My boyfriend Will loves polishes like this for his toes though!

Zoya Cecilia

Zoya Cecilia is from their 2015 Island Fun collection, shown here at 2 coats. It's very densely pigmented so it was a tiny bit on the thick side but still workable. I got lots of compliments on Cecilia!

Simple Nail Art With Zoya Blues

I love this easy to accomplish nail art using all Zoya blue polishes. I started with a base of Zoya Lillian and the next day I used reinforcement stickers to add a large circle of Zoya Liberty and as a guide for the tips using Zoya Rebel. Topped the whole thing off with a fast drying top coat. I think it's the first time I've used a top coat on a Pixie Dust!

L'Oreal Now You Sea Me

L'Oreal Colour Riche Now You Sea Me is a truly gorgeous dusty medium blue with a hint of green. The formula isn't that great though - very streaky and definitely needed a third coat.

Nabi Navy

I can't find much information about this brand but I picked up a few of their hologram polishes at Walgreens a few months ago on clearance. Nabi Hologram Navy is a truly beautiful navy scattered holo unlike anything in my collection. Shown here at 2 coats with no topcoat to preserve the holo effect that can so often be negated with topcoat. Nabi Navy was very easy to apply and is shown here at 2 coats. It does dry quickly so you do have to be careful about going over an area more than once or you might get a bit of dragging. Overall a gorgeous and unique polish that I'm thrilled to have!

Zoya Rayne

Zoya Rayne is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Rayne is a medium toned icy blue packed with turquoise micro shimmer. Perfect for snowy, icy cold days or sunny spring weather! Rayne is pretty streaky so I definitely needed 3 coats. Unlike anything else in my collection and definitely a keeper!
