I picked this polish up the other day on one of my "I'm upset so I am going to shop" splurges. This is Zoya Neeka from the Fall 2011 Smoke and Mirrors collection. I am usually not one to like darker colors. I generally stick with lighter or brighter colors with the occasional darker shades in the Fall and Winter. But these are all quite nice. I like that some of them are pretty close in color but you can choose between creme and sparkle. I originally planned to buy Gem but when I seen the display in ULTA I was very drawn to the purple shades (surprise surprise) and Neeka ended up being the winner. I do plan on picking up a couple more of these when I get a chance.
Neeka is darker on my nails than I expected it to be but it is still very pretty. This is a smokey purple color and has brilliant gold sparkles. This is an excellent fall color and compliments my skin tone quite nicely.
The formula was very nice. I usually do not have issues with Zoya's formula except for the occasional gloop from bottles that have been sitting too long. A couple drops of thinner fixes it right up and thay are always good as new. I also wanted to add that this polish seemed to dry pretty fast. I didn't have any issues with bumps or scrapes getting into my nail because it remained tacky, which is very nice since I hardly ever have time to really sit and let a polish dry.
Good job Zoya!
