I actually got this polish over a year ago from Becca, but I haven’t worn it in a few months. It was in a Birchbox and she wasn’t a fan, but I love me a muted purple color. I had a pretty low key New Year’s with friends, so instead of big sparkly nails I went for a more subtle shimmer. In natural light it’s a purple with a neutral tone, but with the flash on my camera you can see that it has really fine, red glitter in it!

The longevity on this is pretty good. I put it one with a basecoat and topcoat Saturday night and it didn’t chip at all until Wednesday night. Usually I reapply the topcoat after two days to help a mani last longer, but I forgot this time. Whoops!

I love Zoya nail polishes, so my only complaint is that I feel like they all have a bit of a shrinkage issue – the tip of my real nail always seems to show a little once the polish dries. This has happened with different top coats as well, so your best bet is to make sure you take the polish all the way to the very end of your nail so it’s less noticeable.

I hope everyone’s having a good year so far! It’s always a really exciting time for me because I do have a tendency to get caught up in the whole resolutions business, but this year I’m keeping it all relatively simple and realistic so there isn’t as much pressure and I’m more confident I’ll stick with more of them than I did last year.
