Zoya’s Brizia

One coat of this gives me a lavendered-bisque color - a very pretty “neutral” base for nail art, or a variant on “mannequin hands”. Two coats tilts the color more toward pale lavender, and the polish has a slight silver metallic sheen that didn't show up with one coat. It reminded me of Sally Hansen's Mystic Lilac, but slightly paler and without the microglitter that ML has (and Brizia has better application.)

I've got a couple of pictures: one with just the nailcolor, and two that let you compare Brizia to Urban Decay's Primer Potion tube packaging color. Brizia is paler, and has a bit more red in it, and the silver-blue duochrome-esque effect changes the color slightly; but it's in the same general color-family as UDPP-purple.
