Polish - The Beautiful Zoya Mimi

While you're working on your list for the Zoya Exchange, you may want to think about Mimi:

Cloudy Day pick... you need to see more...

I had to put on Mimi... I just saw the movie Kick-Ass.  And I loved Hit Girl, no matter what the reviews said. So I needed a purple polish worthy of Hit Girl to wear. Mimi seemed to fit the bill.

Color
Grape purple with red-pink micro glitter/shimmer. The tone it has depends on the lighting just like Charla (and I suspect the rest of the Sparkle collection). Now I must say, Mimi reminds me a lot of Milani's Totally Cool  but it's not as cool as Totally Cool. Not really sure why. I think it's that Totally Cool had a little more dimension, depth of color. Mimi's not bad, though. Just a preference if I had to put the two together (maybe I should - would a comparison pic be nice?)

Application
Two coats for me - but I probably could have used three. This was not the most pigmented of polishes. 

Wear
Like most Zoya, this wore wonderfully. I used it over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped with Seche Vite. I did get shrinkage on some nails with the SV.

Bottom Line
Not a must have, but definitely a nice to have. Mimi is quite pretty.
