Zoya Smoke & Mirrors | Marina

I’ve been meaning to post about this fabulous nail polish for quite a while. I am such a devoted Zoya Nail Polish fan and I take my Zoya lust very seriously! I love the Fall 2011 Smoke & Mirrors collection. I decided to snap some quick photos after painting my nails today to give you all a glimpse of Marina, one of my favorites.

I love this shimmery, metallic look that Marina has even when completely dry. When I finish painting my nails with this shade I am actually afraid to touch them because they still look wet! I was in a rush and forgot to use a top coat so for my nails to look glossy without it is a definite plus in my eyes!

I love the glossy, shimmery goodness of Marina. It looks lovely when natural light hits it!

[quoteicon author=”Zoya”]Zoya Nail Polish in Marina can be best described as: A strongly blue-toned smoky silver-grey with a dusty metallic finish. A blue smoke shade to give a dreamy artistic look to the nails. [/quoteicon]

Zoya Smoke & Mirrors: Marina

I love that Zoya Nail Polish is formaldehyde free. I also appreciate how the website gives you nearly true to color swatches and indicates the color family, finish, intensity, tone and collection of the polish. I could easily find that Marina is from the blues family, metallic finish, cool tone, intensity level of 5 (opaque) and from the Mirrors collection.

Two coats of Marina. It glides on easily & may not require 2 coats but I personally apply thin layers of nail polish to build to the opacity I want & not waste product.

When I saw Marina online it reminded me of a Christmas ornament I used on my tree last year and I just knew it would be a perfect color for fall and winter. I didn’t hesitate to snag this beauty! The best part of shopping Zoya online is you can order a color spoon of any nail polish for 50 cents and free shipping! So if you’re ever unsure of a color, just get a color spoon to test out before buying. Pretty cool eh?

I am pretty excited about the new Color Box Gift Sets Zoya released and I think I’m going to order some. I think they’ll make great gifts for friends…and myself! There are 12 color assortments to choose from so choosing will be tough. Anywho, you can shop online at Zoya.com and also follow @Zoya_NailPolish on Twitter. Of course you can follow me too, I’m @Mina_Slater on Twitter!

    Very pretty, I only have one zoya polish but I like it. Do they have any polish without glitter? I need some matte polish/

      @LishaLovely Well Marina is more of a shimmer/metallic not glitter but yes they do, I have one actually. I'll do a NOTD post about it for you early next week. 🙂 It's also from Smoke & Mirrors.

    Such a pretty nail polish. Your photos are great. What camera do you have? I wanted to see good photos to see what it really looks like because it's hard to tell online. How long until chipping?
