Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Happy Diwali to everyone! Hope you are all gorging on food and getting dolled up in the evenings! Here's a really pretty pink polish, Zoya Alegra.

It also has a ton of micro shimmer ranging from silver to fuchsia, it also appears a bit gold  or more red toned due to the iridescence. It's quite captivating in person! Colourwise…Read more

Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

My love for my Zoyas is pretty well documented here, today I'm reviewing a brilliant shade called Trixie. Most of favorite Zoya polishes are either creme or dense microshimmers. This one clearly falls in the later and oh boy, it gives beautiful metallic foil like effect which is very reflective. As you might have guessed, it's a silver microshimmer polish. I also like there's no other tone to it like yellow or blue, it's straight up bright silver. The base is actually a bit sheer with very very dense microshimmer. Hence, you need…Read more
