Hi again, you get an LLPT twofer today ;)
I've been stalking my local Ulta since Mother's Day for the Zoya summer collections, Irresistible and Stunning. They finally got them in this Sunday, like I think maybe they *just* unboxed them when I swooped right on in, lol.
A few of the polishes in these collections have musical names and aside from being gorgeous colors, the two greens are reminiscent of songs from one of my very favorite groups, Steely Dan. This one is Rikki (as in, Rikki Don't Lose That Number), from the Irresistible collection.
Rikki is a cool, medium moss green foil. It's a hard color to accurately describe. There's a bit of yellow in here (which keeps it from giving me lobster hands, always a good thing) and enough blue to take it to the hunter green side of the spectrum. It's a lighter blue, so the effect is a gorgeous and perfectly summer wearable and unique green. It's got green, yellow, and a small smattering of copper shimmers.
If some of the foils from the last few collections have been a bit thick, Zoya's returned to perfect form with this one. Rikki's got a formula of perfectly workable consistency and is beautiful in two coats.
Wearing a Zoya foil is such a treat, to me. They look so magical going on, are so easy to apply, and have such an amazing finish.
I can safely say now that Zoya Rikki is available at your local Ulta for $8. It's also available on Zoya's website. Ulta is having a B2G1 sale this week, so I picked up a small bottle of Zoya Remove to try. I've been a pure acetone devotee since I started painting my nails but if there's something that removes polishes like this with the same ease and with less dehydration, I'm all for it. I'll report back with my thoughts, but I know a lot of you gals love it and I'd love to hear why.
Thanks for reading and may the day be gentle with you ♥
