While I was in Hong Kong I bought a few nail polishes which aren't available in The Netherlands, like nail polishes of the brand Zoya. In this blogpost I'm going to swatch the nail polish Pandora #ZP563. This nail polish is a part of their Touch Nude Nail polish collection (limited edition). Keep on reading if you want to see some swatches. By the way, I recently made my own light box and I took the following pictures in this blogpost with it. To be honest, I'm quite satisfied with the outcome hihi ^___^ I love the white background ='D.
Description on the zoya.com site
This nail polish has a formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor free formula (3-free!). It has a medium pink-beige nude with blue and mauve undertones and a hint of pearly silver shimmer. An opaque, full-coverage nude that works beautifully on skin with cool tones.
Color Finish: Creamy Metallic
Color Intensity: 5 ( 1=Sheer - 5=Opaque )
I totally agree with the description above. The Zoya "Touch" nail polishes are created for varying skin tones to provide a nude, natural appearance. The pandora nail polish for instance is created for people with a dark skin tone. Well, I don't really have a dark skin tone, but the color suits me well ^^. Also I'm happy that this nail polish is 3-free!
I bought it for 80 HKD in a nail store in Hong Kong. If you're living in the US you can purchase it at Zoya.com and it is sold for 8 USD there. I recommend to check the product code when buying, because the nude nail polishes in this collection are quite similar. This is the Pandora #ZP563 - 0.5 fl. oz./ 15 ml.
(The pictures in this blogpost are true to color.) I had to apply two coats and it left a great, shiny finish ^__^. It's a nude color as you can see in the pictures. It surprised me that the nail polish stayed for a long time without chipping (probably around 7-8 days)! So they DO have a long wearing formula ;)! I'm definitely satisfied with my first Zoya nail polish.
