Zoya Color Lock System Day 2 and 3

I had to end my test at day three. While the polish itself was wearing quite well, I just couldn't take it anymore. The bubbling was driving me insane, I had a party to go to and I wanted my nails to look good. I changed to Nubar Gold Leaf and used Nubar's base and top coats. Currently day two and no tipwear OR bubbles! Hahahahaha....

Anyway, here's some evidence:

This was Day one. Notice the extreme rippling of the surface of the polish due to bubbling under the polish.

This is day two. Only the barest hint of tipwear, but not really enough to be noticable.

Day three. Slight tipwear and minuscule chip on my pinkie.

At this point, I'm going to have to say that Zoya's Color Lock System lives up to its claims. It did increase my polish wear by 50%. Normally I have tipwear the second day, as I do tend to type a whole hell of a lot.

So, on that point only, good job Zoya.

I'm just not sure I can deal with the absurdly long drying time and the OMG-are-you-freaking-kidding-me, this-has-to-be-a-trick bubbles.

I'm going to give it another try eventually. The bubbling was just so incredibly massive I couldn't keep the polish on any longer. I have to see how long it takes to chip. Curious minds need to know.


  1. I got totally different results. I did get some bubblage but not nearly as bad as yours. I'll write about it soon.

  2. Can't wait to see your take on it! I'm going to have to try it again.
