Zoya is my favorite brand of nail polish so far (there are many brands yet for me to try). They recently had a deal where you could buy 3 polishes from their website for 'free', and just pay $10.00 for shipping/handling. Since the polish usually retails for $8.00 each, it sounded like a sweet deal to me. I took advantage of the opportunity, of course, to get my latest most-wanted polish, Aurora.
Isn't she beautiful? Aurora is a red-leaning purple with gorgeous holographic sparkles. I used 3 coats for full opacity.
I couldn't completely capture the beauty, but as you can see by the amount of photos, I kept trying.
Bright sun and a little blurring helped to show off the holographic sparkle below, on my thumbnail.
Ah, still lovely in artificial light, as shown above. The artificially lit photo shows the true color quite well, at least on my computer's monitor.
Aurora is from Zoya's Ornate Collection. Check it out here: http://www.zoya.com/content/38/category/Zoya-Ornate-Winter-Holiday-Nail-Polish-Collection.html. My other favorites from this collection are Blaze and Logan.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite nail polish brand? I have heard that Deborah Lippmann and Butter London are fabulous, but I have yet to try them. You will read about it when I do; I own several, they are just Untrieds.
