NARS "Zulu" a.k.a. the best dark green jelly ever!

"Zulu", just like "Mash", was re-released with NARS "Vintage Nail Polish Collection" in late 2010. I heard so many story about how awesome "Zulu" was - it was a real legend around nail polish addicts - that I couldn't resist getting my own bottle when it was finally available again.
& what can I say: It's love!

 
I have a dear friend who loves jelly finishes & to be honest, I never quite understood what's so great about jellies. They tend to get lighter at the tips of the nails, especially on longer nails, & I always thought it looks as if I already had tipwear when I had barely applied the polish. 
But the minute I applied "Zulu" the magic began to work *lol* It's so vibrant & superglossy, you simply have to see it in real life to fully understand what I'm talking about, I guess.
It's a very dark green, almost bordering on black, but to me it's still visibly green. (Knowing that it's supposed to be green not black surely helps ;-D)
I've other dark greens like Chelsea "Psycho Green" or OPI "Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow" but they lack the quirkiness & that special something - I just don't love them the same way that I love my little bottle of "Zulu".
It only took 2 coats to get complete opacity which is pretty rare with jellies. Normally it takes at least 3, if not even 4 coats, to get them opaque. Dryingtime was great, too, about 10 minutes with Poshe fast drying topcoat.
Yes, I switched from my beloved Seche Vite to Poshe & I can't detect a difference. Poshe is B3F which is a big plus in my book, so I'm really happy I like it so much.

  18. Ah, this looks gorgeous on you! So glad you see the wonderful qualities of jelly finishes. In certain lights they can just glow. Even the darker colors. Nfu Oh 570 is one of those darks that is so bright and vivid due to its jelly quality.
