Well, here goes nothing... I begin my polish blog. I'm Sarah, and this is my contribution to the plethora of polish-related blogging. I bit my nails for twenty-three years compulsively, and you'll be pleased to know that while I've had brief remissions in the past, I have finally passed the one year mark and consider myself a non-biter. Despite my predilection for biting, I have always had an affinity for polish. Perhaps it's the artist in me that hungers for pretty, sparkly paint. Whatever. I love polish, I have a ton. I have managed, through a lot of trial and error, to find a magic combination of treatments, base and top coats, and nutritional supplements that have allowed my nails to grow strongly (finally!). They're not long by some standards, but I am happy with their progress. I'm sure I'll introduce myself more as time goes on. Now, I share.
For my first post, we have Zoya Veruschka, part of Zoya's Matte Velvet collection. It's a gorgeous shimmery matte green. I love Zoya Matte Velvets. Of all the matte polishes that have come out in the last six months or so (trust me, I have sampled them all, swatches to come), I find them to be my favorites. They're shimmery and glowy, never chalky. I like the formula, and they all only require two coats. I find that I can get several days of wear out of them also, unlike others. Zoya also tweets incredible promo codes, so it's worth following them on Twitter to get amazing freebies. ANYWAY. I'm verbose, have I mentioned that? On to the photographic evidence!

Gorgeous, no? I have to refine my picture taking technique, I think, but we'll see how it goes. As you probably know, these shimmery matte polishes also look spectacular with top coat. I have no evidence of this... I'll have to think ahead a bit more in the future, obviously :-)
That's all for this first post, I'll be back tomorrow!
