Oy Zoya, what am I to do when you make AWFUL polishes? Anise is the second of the free trio that Zoya gave away for their New Years promotion. It looks like a black with gold shimmer. It is, in fact, a dark dirt brown with subtle shimmer.
What Zoya (and I) did not yet mention is that Anise takes 3-4 coats to be opaque. The shimmer is just subtle enough to highlight all the flaws on my nails, without adding anything interesting. And it is somehow brush-stroky, despite being almost a creme. All-around fail. I would have loved a black creme.
~ Dirty black: Zoya – Anise
~ Purple: Zoya – Rea
~ Grey: Maybelline – Bare Escape
~ Stamp: Bundle Monster – 604
This mani was in no way helped by my attempt to stamp. Which ended up off-center. So I went to go fix it with a light grey polish…and meh. This mani is just sad. Sorry you guys!
