Zoya Neeka and Zoya Yara

Zoya Neeka (purple) and Zoya Yara (green)

Zoya Neeka and Yara are both from the "mirrors" part of their Smoke and Mirrors Collection for Fall 2011 and I really can't decide which one I like better.  Well, I can, but it was difficult. You know me, I always have to go with the green. *grin*

But green and purple together?  Makes me swoon.

Zoya Neeka is a gold and violet shimmer in a dusty greyed purple polish.  That's what I see.  Zoya describes it this way: "greyed amethyst with subtle red douchrome shimmer and bright gold accents." So I'm guessing what I am seeing as the violet shimmer is actually the "subtle red duochrome shimmer?"

 This photo shows the true color better:

Zoya Yara is a medium-to-bright olive green with yellow gold shimmer and what looks like chartreuse green shimmer. That's what I see.  Zoya describes it this way: "medium smoky olive drab with an illuminating splash of bright gold glitters." I'm guessing what I am seeing as the chartreuse green shimmer is the gold picking up the green from the base?

The formula, color saturation and application of both was great.  Standard narrow brush, but I had no clean up on either, which is a HUGE plus in my book.  Also these are actually perfect in one coat. And one coat is shown in all photos. But as is my habit, I'll probably do two for my full mani. Two thumbs up!

  1. That's cool, I've never seen accent fingers done like that. :)

  2. LOL! Thanks! Actually I was just swatching them - I probably wouldn't wear them out of the house like that. I rarely do an accent nail, but when I do, it's usually just the ring finger.
