In case anyone needs any more reasons why polish friends are the best... I got a package a couple days ago containing two of the Zoya Lovelies I'd been lemming the most from a dear friend (who I know reads my bloggity blog and knows who she is ♥).
This is Neely.
A lot of gals love colors like this, but I've steered away from them because I've had a suspicion that they just wouldn't look right on me, and indeed, I had a devil of a time trying to edit the Mr. Krabs out of my skin. In the end, I decided that until my patience/photo editing skillz improve, it is what it is.
So, what drew me to this color, then? Maybe it was Essie's delectable swatches, or maybe it's Zoya's particularly beautiful description of Neely as "the earliest spring green creme". Whatever the case, the color is gorgeous, and like Jacqueline, looks much prettier on me in real life. Neely is pale, glossy, and perfect in two coats. It reminds me of crocuses amidst melting snow, and baby daffodil buds growing in the cold, late winter sun.
Oh, one more thing, not polish/beauty related or even remotely interesting to most of you, lol... We just bought tickets to go see Rush this summer :) This is awesome because Rush has been my third* favorite band for as long as I've been listening to rock and roll.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! ♥
