Zoya is Jesse's girl!

Hey people! How are ya doing? I'm having a post-lunch warm beverage (an expression that totally reminds me of Sheldon, hehe), today a gorgeous black tea with cinnamon, vanilla and something else flavour and I decided to show you my NOTD. Since it is an epic win after all. Btw, I read a little rant about overuse of the word 'epic'. Are you fed up with it too or are you like me and use it all the time? ;) 

I tried this combo on a ring I'm making as a gift, and loved it so freaking much, I changed my mani, trying Zoya Yasmeen with it for the first time. You know, I generally think I'm quite fed up with purples. That the purple phase is well behind me. And then I find a purple like Yasmeen and pass out from excitement. No words can describe the beauty and depth of this utterly gorgeous purple. I was actually sorry a bit to layer it. I did it anyway, knowing I'll love the combo, but Yasmeen is a gorgeous little thing all by herself. I did only one coat of Jesse's Girl Confetti - probably my favourite layering polish ever - to keep the purple base more clear and I love the result. Mind you, on the nails the duochrome is a lot more visible, i didn't capture it well.




And the beauty herself. 



I feel like Yasmeen came out on my pictures a bit too bright and it lots a bit of depth too. *sigh* Simple camera, no help there. But I'm sure a lot of you already know her, probably also own her, I think this is easily one of the most popular Zoyas out there. It's a bit older, from Zoya Provocateur collection for Fall 2006. Yasmeen is obviously the star of the collection, I can't even find the swatches of the rest of the collection, but promo bottles look pretty boring. Not Yasmeen though! Two easy coats on this baby too, it's really simple to work with. For every purple lover this really is the polish to have. 

What do you think of the combo and Yasmeen alone? What's on your nails today? :) 

Thank you for reading!

  1. Great combination! Yasmeen is one of my favorite Zoyas; I'm glad they don't yank things out of their line right away since I didn't even know about Zoya until a couple years ago.

    rock-or-not, thank you! :)

    AmyGrace, it's a feeling I get often, when admiring other blogs - I should wear cool colours more often. Yasmeen has to look amazing on your nails :)
