Zoya Adina: nail polish love

Trying to capture how truly gorgeous Zoya’s new ‘Adina’ colour is sadly falls beyond my very limited photography skills. But let me assure you, it is stunning. A pretty shimmering lilac duo chrome which flashes from a rosy lilac to emerald green in different lights. It reminds me of a mixture of a mermaid’s tail (or how I imagine a mermaid’s tail to be like, since they aren’t real) and a sunset.

Zoya Adina.
It’s like a little bottle of magic potion
(I’m thinking of the potion from ‘Death Becomes Her’ – anyone else?)

I’m a huge fan of Zoya polishes, everything about them impresses me – from the sleek bottle, to the formula (free of the potentially harmful Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Camphor). The polishes glide on, dry quickly and last well.
The pictures below are of just one coat over a base. Two coats would probably be a bit better but one was pretty impressive. I have included quite a few shots to try and give a true impression of the multi-coloured magic of this polish. Sorry they aren’t the greatest quality!
This probably gives the best impression of the colour
with the green shades showing.
This gives a good impression of the rosy lilac colours,
the slightly pinker shades that show at some angles.
Another one for luck. And to just admire the gorgeousness.
Adina is just one of the gorgeous colours from the latest Spring collection – I have two more lined up to review (a silver and an orange-y coral) – but this one just jumped out at me from the first moment I saw it online, and when I saw it in real life I wasn’t disappointed.
Obviously, if you tend to veer more towards to traditional shades then this wont be one for you. But I like a bit of colour and this one is so lovely it actually distracts me from things I should be doing – even the boyfriend commented on how unusual and pretty the colour was.

Zoya nail polish costs £9.95 and can be bought from The Organic Pharmacy or http://www.zoyapolish.co.uk/

    I love Zoya nail polish!This colour is really cute – it’s quite similar to Zoya Zara nail polish – I had the same problems when I tried to take a pic of Zara! It’s really hard to get a true representation of it!
