Polish of the Day - Zoya Rea

If love is a pink foil polish, then Heaven is a purple foil polish! I love Zoya Rea like crazy and wish that Zoya would start making more foil polishes. Rea's also a polish that I would put in my top 20 if I had to choose.

The Color: Light purple, sometimes looks a bit pink in florescent lighting (like in the office). The finish is all foily goodness.

The Formula: Opaque in 2 coats. Not as thick as other foils like OPI Star-ring the Rockettes, but still good.

The Wear: The chip you see in my polish is because my nails decided to peel - not the fault of the polish itself. This baby wears fine. It doesn't fight with Seche Vite like other Zoya Polishes (or at least not as much - it's more like a light slapping around).

The Bottom Line: Rea is an excellent alternative to the light purple creams that are popular this season. Also a nice alternative to those potentially streaky purple frosts and shimmers.

You can purchase Rea from Zoya.
