NOTD - Zoya "Richelle"

"Richelle" is from the Zoya winter collection Flourish for 2008, and it seems every other nail blogger have already posted some really great photos of these collections. However I believe in making informed consumer choices, especially in these "credit crunch" days, so here is my opinion and my swatches as well :)

Richelle is a sparkly, warm golden bronze. I can't take my eyes off this colour. I have never coveted gold polishes (hence why I didn't go nuts for Chanel's Gold Fiction) but Richelle really excites me!

The formula is very smooth and non-gritty for such a fiercly micro-glittery polish. It was opaque in 2 coats. It dries fairly quickly to a high shine. The photo shows base coat, 2 coats of "Richelle" and 1 coat of Seche Vite.

What can I say? "Richelle" is my Christmas polish crush :) I did however sabotage one of my nails while taking photos so I think that tonight it will come off and make way for "Shivon" or "Mieko" from the same collection, so stay tuned :)

i cant wait to seethe others. zoya makes the most perfect colors and all the reviews for it are making me want to add even more of them. the fact that zoya polish lasts on my nails longer than any others is a real bonus

Thanks for comments! You'd be glad to see Mieko swatched today then! :)

Zoya has some amazing colours, alright :) I really like the formula of the ones I have, apart from "Juicy" which is incredibly sheer, and they last so well :)
