Zoya – Ivanka

I’ve been going through the stash, looking at polishes I haven’t shared with you.  I stumbled across my little Zoya collection so I thought it would be a good time to show you some of these pretties.  I know Zoya can be a bit tricky to pick up in the UK, but you can now get them from Sally Magpies, as well as places like eBay and Amazon.

Anyway, you know how I like a blingy nail polish – you can’t get blingier than this one!  This is Ivanka, which was part of the Sparkle Collection released in Summer 2010.

Colour build up with this is impressive.  First coat, you are thinking, this is never going to be opaque.  Two more coats later, so three in total, and you have this great colour, rippled with depth and interest.  It is very shiny and really catches the light.  I wore mine over a base coat of Essence Better then Gel Nails Base, followed with a top coat of G&G HK Girl.  The G&G HK Girl really makes it shine and its just stunning.

The Zoya brushes are quite small and straight, so its three swipes to cover my nails, even on my little finger.  Formula does look a tad on the runny side so I had to be careful not to flood my cuticles.  That said, patience pays off well.

What do you think?  What is your fave Zoya shade?  And any good places to pick them up?
