Zoya – Kimmy

Friday, 13 May, 2011

Part of Zoya’s summer Sunshine Collection for Summer 2011, Kimmy is a gorgeous shimmer packed red-orange that’s truly a sight to behold.

It’s very intense and frankly, it surprised me. The jury is still out on whether I like this color on me or not. It leans more towards not. I’ve been a fan of Zoya’s glitter polishes, despite my intense dislike of glitter. It’s no secret. Had this color not had glitter and had been a creme, I still think I wouldn’t have liked it. Awkward sentence structure wins again, but I hope it makes sense. I love Zoya colors in general and I still have the other five glitter colors to swatch so keep an eye out! I also still have the cremes and the spring line to show off. I know I’ve been slacking.

I know I haven’t shown a Friday Red in a while. I just had to put this out there because it’s been a while and in light of recent political events, it is long overdue. Ok, political things aside, let’s take a look at Kimmy. I am going to do my best to keep the Friday Red thing going on.

Luscious. Rich. Bold. Glittery. Making an appearance – bad cuticles, hangnails and bad polish application! I think the indoor shot showed the color and the glitter the best. It looks absolutely gorgeous in here…just not on me. It really didn’t flatter my skin tone at all.

Even though it’s overcast, it still got washed out by the sun.

The formula was wonderfully easy to apply with a fast drying time. It was opaque in two coats and was ready to go in no time flat.
