Wow, E already in the alphabet nails series. Today I have a manicure with Zoya Edyta and Quo Bling It On. Edyta is a polish that I have a love hate relationship with. I love to wear it but hate photographing it because pictures never show its true beauty. I also hate that it stains my nails if I wear it for a few days, even with two coats of base coat!
Zoya describes Edyta as a complex mixture of gold, olive, blue-green and smoky grey with a sparkling metallic finish. A dark shade balanced with sparkle for a dramatic look. You can see that shimmery goodness in the bottle. As with most Zoya polishes, it has a flawless finish and is completely opaque in two coats with decent dry time.
A little shimmer is never enough for Alphabet Nails though, and just a swatch of Edyta that doesn’t show its true shimmering dark beauty wouldn’t be good enough. So I sponged on some Bling It On! by Quo by Orly at the tips of my nails fading down the nail. Bling It On is a mix of gold and silver glitter with some smaller shimmer in the clear base. I have had this for a while so not sure if it is still available, but Quo is exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart.
The sparkle helps show its true shimmering beauty with a green base and the blue in the base helps the silver glitter not seem too cold against the green and gold. This one is worth a little nail staining!
So what do you think of Zoya Edyta? Is it a colour you would wear?
