Zoya Professional Lacquer in Pandora

See that beautiful shimmery purple nail polish on the left? Well, now look to the right. That unassuming light pink colour is Pandora. Although to be fair, it's not really just a pink - it's more of a mauvey beige colour with some very slight shimmer (or dare I say it, the finest silvery frost). Still, when I asked my boyfriend whether he likes this polish on my nails his response was: "Wait, you actually painted your nails?"

The colour is actually more accurate in this photo (btw, I bought that scarf from Accessorize and have been wearing it a lot lately. But I've just added it to this photo to add some colour).

Now, I can't really decide on this polish - I like the colour, it's very elegant and at the same time it's not your typical sheer pink. It's actually very opaque for such a light colour (I only had to use 2 coats) and here's the problem - it's very streaky and brush strokes are definitely visible from up close. However, I think maybe next time I need to apply thicker coats, it might help.

Also, I've been using the Zoya Colour Lock System ("Anchor" base coat and "Armor" top coat) and I really like them - the above photo was actually shot on the fifth day of my manicure and I'm very impressed, no chipping and barely any tip wear. And that Remove + is the best nail polish remover I've ever tried.

Do you have any favourite nude nail polishes? I'm very much interested in OPI's Tickle my France-y but on the more colourful spectrum I've been eyeing the deep reds such as Essie's Limited Addiction and Chanel's Rouge Fatal.


  1. Very pretty and fresh looking on you! You just reminded me I got this in my birchbox awhile ago!

  2. I really like the one on the left. Gorgeous color! :)

  3. I love Zoya polishes! I have many favorites from the line. I love Pandora on you xx
