Zoya’s Anastasia

The purple is not a deep purple, like you might expect from the bottle-photos on Zoya's site. At two coats (full opacity and color depth), it looks like the sun through a plum skin, not the blue-black that plums sometimes actually are. This is also definitely a warm purple - so if you're looking for a cool purple, check out Rea, Pinta, Juno, or Ki.

Like Zoya's other microglitters, it's almost got a foil finish rather than the more textured microglitter you may be familar with from China Glaze, or the outright glitter shades like China Glaze's Emerald Sparkled or Ruby Pumps (or Zoya's ultra glitters). The glitter particle size looks almost as fine as China Glaze's hologram polishes (or Sally Hansen's Nail Magic polishes.)
