Zoya: Zuza

Hi everyone! I hope you're all well and thanks for helping me out with the blogs commenting issues. It looks like the commenting link cannot be seen with Google Chrome. I have no idea how to fix that. So if you use Chrome and wish to leave a comment you'll have to click directly on the post to do so. Sorry for any inconvenience.  

I hope you all had a great weekend. I did! On Saturday night my sister took me to see The Fray as an early birthday present. We'd seen them live once before and loved it so we were excited. They were, just as last time, excellent. If you like their music and have a chance to see them live, DO IT! They are really interactive with the crowd, Issac even went into the seats and sang which was amazing.  Issac also read a fan letter on stage and asked a boy to the prom for the girl who wrote it. That was so cute and priceless.  

My husband went with my sister and me since the show was at the casino, and he played poker all night. When the concert was over he was playing 3 card poker at one of the tables so my sister and I watched for a while. He'd lost some decent money already in the night and was frustrated. He said "when these chips are gone we'll leave". As he put his final $30 bet down on the table he was frustrated with his luck. The three cards were dealt and he turned them over to reveal Ace of Spades, King of Spades and Queen of Spades. Could it be? A royal flush!? The man next to him saw the cards and his eyes about popped out of his head. My husband was shocked and I don't think he believed it. He set the cards down for a minute, then picked them back up and placed his bet.  The dealer was like "do you realize you just won the jackpot? I never dealt a jackpot hand before!" We were so excited but hubby was still in shock.  He'd won! It was the 3 card poker progressive jackpot, just under $6,000.00. Sweet!!!  Oh man, what an act of congress! The pit boss came over, counted all the cards like a dozen times to make sure it was legit. It took 1 hour and 10 minutes to get paid (by check, not chips) and countless amounts of paperwork.... of course TAXES too. BOOO!!! When all was said and done he walked away with a $4000.00 check *yup they took about 2k in TAXES, buzzkill! It was still so cool that his night turned around like that! Yay for winning big! 

Anyway... on to the polish! 

Today I have a color from Zoya's summer collection called Zuza when i saw the promo images for this collection this was the color I was most excited about. Zoya describes this as "deep, saturated, oceanic turquoise with gold and silver metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish. A beachy, colorful, foil-like shade with the perfect balance between blue and green." I honestly think it looks prettier in the press images vs. real life but it's still a super pretty shade. I love the shimmer in this, it appears almost textured.  

This was super opaque and pretty thick. I had no issues with application and needed just two coats for the opacity shown below.  

I guess I thought this one was going to be jelly like from the promo images but it's not. On the contrary, it's super opaque. I still like it but I was hoping for a gorgeous jelly! You know?! Oh well! 

So how do you feel about this one? Do you own it? How do you like it? Sound off below!!!!!
