I may need a duochrome intervention

Good morning.

Today we have another Zoya. I say it all too often but I adore multi and duochromes. I will always buy a polish if it is duochrome. I should catalog just how many polishes I own in those finishes but I'm kind of afraid to do so. I don't want to know how deep this sickness is.

Summer 2011 was very good to me because Matt set aside quite a bit of money for me to buy polishes that I'd been longing for but couldn't buy. Because I'm cheap and I sacrificed my nail polish budget to save up for our third trip to Cancun. Anyway, this satisfied several lemmings.

Like this one:

Zoya Ki
Three coats over base coat

Oh dear Bob that is lovely. Multichromatic dark purple, yes please! Ki is a multifaceted polish. The base is a deep, dark purple that flashes green and sometimes silver. The formula is not as good as some only because it doesn't apply so evenly. It flows nice and dries fast but I often see it is patchy when the light hits the underside of my nail tip. Because of that, I like to layer this over another purple. 

When I first saw it, I knew I had to have it. But I had to keep putting it off again and again. So when I was able to make a good size order from Zoya, it was the first color to go in my basket. This is one of my very favorites and a go to when I don't know what to do with my nails or I don't want to do nail art. I know most wear a dark color like this in Fall or Winter but I love wearing them in Summer. I'm entranced by the flashes and changes and the sunlight really works for that.

I need to compare this with two Essence polishes I have because there may be some duping going on. Add that to my to-do list...

I purchased this in 2011 from Zoya.com for $7.00. It makes me happy.

  1. Totally gorgeous. I don't have this one but I do have...Adina? I think that's what it's called. And it's so, so pretty.

    I love that story about Matt setting aside money! Too cute.
