Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator
Zoya Jana - two coats
Qtica Half Time drying drops
I surprised myself by choosing this one as my first mani after my nail vacation. I really wanted to do a nude, but I also wanted to use one of my new fall colors. Jana looked like the lightest shade from the Smoke Collection, so I went with it. But on the nail it is much darker than in the bottle. I really like it though. It's an unusual color, in the way that Caitlin (from the Intimate Collection) was. Now that I think of it, it reminds me of China Glaze Below Deck; I'll have to check them out side by side.
However, application was less than stellar. Maybe I'm out of practice. The formula on this one was really thick, and the first coat went on very patchy. The second coat evened things out, but it didn't self-level as much as I would have liked. Top coat took care of that though, so it all came out alright in the end.
