Pink Wednesday: Zoya Rica

Good morning, Kitschies!  We're almost half-way through another week.  How can the time possibly go so fast?!  *sigh*  It's a little cooler here today, which is nice, but all that does is make me more unhappy when it warms up again.

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for Summer to be finished.  But, that doesn't mean I'm ready to change my nail color yet (even though I'm wearing a decidedly un-summer color today).  I'm linking up with On Wednesdays We Wear Pink today and have a super shimmery, fun summer color to share with you.



I was pretty quick to grab Zoya's Summertime collection when it came out earlier this year.  How can you resist gorgeous glass-fleck cool-toned colors?  I couldn't!  

This beauty is Zoya Rica.  It's a pretty strawberry pink base with gold glass-fleck (shimmer).  The Zoya site rates this as 4 (out of 5) for opaqueness, but I don't think it's quite that opaque.  At 3 coats, there is some obvious VNL with flash in this picture. 

I would *almost* call this a duochrome, but not in the classic sense.  The amount of gold shimmer you get depends on the amount of light.  With flash, there is definitely more pink that gold, but when you get in more indirect light, this is what you see...


I like the pink, but I love Rica even more when she's more gold than pink.  It's glittery but not in-your-face like chunky glitter can be.  Rica is definitely one of my favorite pinks (up among the ranks with ChG Strawberry Fields)!

What do you think of Rica?  Do you have any of the Summertime collection?  Which one is your favorite?

Fantastic pink. Girly in the extreme.

I love this! I kind of love pink. I went out and bought a nail polish yesterday determined to paint my nails. I am still staring at it today, I should have bought something delightful like this shade. Where do you normally buy your polish?

That is one of the prettiest pinks I have seen in a long time!

I have this one and am so glad I got it. It's very unique. Not the same ol' same for a pink. I like how it looks with your skintone too.
