Polish - Zoya Charla Behold Her Beauty! (And a Contest)

The Polish Fairies at @Zoya_NailPolish have really outdone themselves...

In fact, I'm going to take a cue from Beautopia and show you a bunch of pictures because this one needs it.




I think this is what I wanted when I was wearing Zoya Akyra. This is such a complex color and it's wonderful.

Color
Teal, blue, aqua, mermaid glitter/shimmer/near-foil. The shimmer in it can be blue, green, gold depending on the light. I couldn't get it at all with my camera. Every picture you've seen of this polish doesn't compare to how cool it looks when it's on the nail. And it is so close to being a foil... so very close.

Application
Two coats, no problems for me. The micro-glitter in this polish is very densely packed.

Wear
Like iron. Used Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator as base and Seche Vite as a top coat. I can already tell that I will remove it before it chips (from something other than my peeling tips). but I totally don't want to take it off!

Bottom Line
You need this, and there's no way around it!

Zoya Polishes
sell for $7 each and are available from their website.

Contest - Win a Bottle of Zoya Charla
I had a feeling I would love Charla so much I ordered two bottles just for the specific purpose of giving one away to you! Do you want a bottle of Charla? And we're going to make this fun! If you do, do the following:
  • Enter a comment below expressing your desire to enter the contest for the polish in the form of a Haiku! (hey, I bought the polish - and for my $7 you're going to entertain me) Don't worry it doesn't have to be a good Haiku.
  • Follow me using Google Friend Connect or on Twitter (@styrch) - I need to have a way of getting in touch with you. If you follow me on Twitter, leave me your twitter name in the comments.
  • You must be living in the US please.
I will choose the winner at random and announce who it is in one week!
