Penélope's Lotus with Zoya's Lotus

Evening my dear people! How are you doing? I trust you USA gals are having a wonderful holiday! I'm feeling a bit under the weather. My ear is starting to ache and I dread the pain, because I had earache very often as a child and I loathe it. I think that is one of the worst type of pain a person can get. Hopefully it is nothing serious and it will pass soon. 

Today I have two gorgeous colours for you. I'm sure you all know Zoya Lotus, from Zoya True collection for Spring 2012. It is a lovely, smoky purple with pinkish shimmer. Of course it turns a bit too blue on my photos. I'm starting to see the pattern with these types of purples and my camera. It is a lovely polish, I love it.
I decided Lotus would be a great base for another Lotus. Penélope Luz is, as far as I understand, a Brazilian indie brand. And oh, Lord of the Rings, are those babies gorgeous!!! Lotus caught my eye the moment I unwrapped it. It is such an amazing glitter. It consist of black, white and pink round glitter, and there is a very generous amount of it in the clear base. I think you could easily built up Lotus with three or four coats. Here is how it looks like in two coats over Zoya Lotus.





And the best colour accurate photos I got of Zoya Lotus:


Penélope Luz Lotus looks even more stunning IRL. I love it. Plus the base is a bit less blue so it compliments the glitter more than on these lightbox pictures. Penélope Luz has a Facebook page and you can buy it of Loja BBF page. Fair warning: after seeing pictures on the FB page I built up a wish list of Penélope Luz wonderful creations (just check Ocean Jewel, Wicca, Geisha, Wedding Dress and Gitana out!). If they are half as amazing as Lotus is, I need to get them somehow. Remember them on Brazilian swapping! I can only thank Eveline for surprising me with it, Lotus is amazing, dear, thank you!!

Do you know Penélope Luz brand, have any of her nail polish?

Thank you for reading!

  2. Ta Zoyin je meni to die for lep =))) Skupaj z drugim Lotusom tvorita lepo kombinacijo, ampak mi je škoda, da se Zoyinega shimmerja nič več ne vidi.

    1. Zoyin shimmer je precej sramežljiv že kot sam. Ga pa Penélopin Lotus precej prekrije, ja, ker je zelo gost glitter. Sta pa obe čudoviti barvi. :)

    1. Srećom uho je dobro, da, hvala ti! :) I znam tačno šta misliš kad kažeš da si ne usudiš gledat dalje lakove, moja WL već je puna a nikako da jih dobijem. Moram opet koji swap napraviti, kad bude više vremena i para. :)

    1. Ima puno Brazilskih blogerka, pokušaj koji swap srediti, stvarno se isplati. A i nije teško pronaći zanje boje, pošto nemaju ni Essence ni Catrice, u stvari vrlo malo svih Evropskih brandova. :)
