Zoya’s Adina

I've got my look from the day before, and from today, to post (took the photos, then sat down to do taxes) but first, my latest bit of tax-procrastination: my nail polish. (I have no idea why I'm procrastinating. This is my first full year as a homeowner, I'm (pretty sure I'm) going to be getting a refund…but I just hate all the noodling about with paperwork and soforth.

I know. Quit the bitchenundgripen. Okay, here's the nail polish pics.

NOTE: the drawing I mention at the bottom of this post is closed. It ran through Friday, April 9 2010.

Adina is from the 2010 Spring collection (Reverie). It's a purple-green duochrome, vaguely similar to Zoya's Ki but not as deep a purple. With one coat, it's semi-opaque with a nice subtle green flash. Two coats deepens the purple a bit and really fronts the duochrome effect.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

I placed another order with Zoya today, for Meadow, Sasha, Joy, and Cheri - as well as the Armor topcoat and the Anchor base coat, and a big jar of the White Tea sugar scrub. I got Remove+, a container of Lemon Sugar Scrub, and a 5.5-ounce Lime Zest therapy lotion as my freebies. If anyone's been thinking of trying Zoya's sugar scrubs…do it. They're wonderful. I love them! (The only reason I didn't buy a big jar of the Lemon Sugar Scrub was that the White Tea is a slightly better fragrance with my body chemistry.)
