Zoya Tomoko - Let's Compare

So for the past four days most of my food has involved putting kimchi on it. I'm officially obsessed with it, and I am pretty sure you can put it on anything and it will taste fantastic. Kimchi Stew, Fantastic. Kimchi Risotto, exquisite. Kimchi Ice Cream, a taste like none other. Ok well the last one may not work as well, but the others sure do!

Today I have Zoya Tomoko. Now I love textured polishes, and I was admit I was a bit hesitant to buy any at first. Am I glad I ever took the plunge because I love all the ones I have. They look stunning, you can top coat them, and they dry super fast. This was no exception. Tomoko is a fine champagne gold texture polish. In my swatches I used 2 coats, both of which applied easily. If you would like to smooth this out you will need around 2 thick or 3 normal coats of top coat.

No topcoat


Tomoko, reminded me of Barry M Majesty. Now I knew from the get go that they weren't dupes, but I decided to compare them side by side either way. They are both champagne golds, but Majesty is slightly deeper. The formula on Majesty is a bit thicker than Tomoko, but they were both just as easy to apply. Tomoko is a bit more glitter hungry when topcoated. Finally the biggest difference is while Tomoko is just fine glitter, Majesty is both fine and larger glitter.  Oh and Majesty is a bit harder to take off because of the larger pieces of glitter. One thing they did have in common was since they are both soooooooo jam packed full of glitter I find they look less textured then they actually are.


  1. I really, really like it shiny! :)

  2. Zoya Tomoko is really amazing, without and with top coat :-) And I like it more than Barry M Majesty :-)

  3. Tomoko is soooo gorgeous. I've been averting textured polishes cause I'm afraid it'll take forever to get them off!

    Interestingly enough I'm very into kimchi these past few days as well, haha. We have kimchi at work so I've been scooping boatloads of that stuff onto whatever I'm eating.

  4. I like the white bright look of Tomoko better. I was certain I would not like textures either, until I tried one. Now I'm hooked! They dry duper fast, need no top coat, cover nail flaws, and look so pretty with the sparkles.
