Nails I Love

ZOYA – Mira

Ok, this has been the hardest nail varnish EVER to photograph and I’m still not convinced I’ve managed to take a photo that even resembles it, so you really do need to be Googling if you’re thinking about buying this one.

MIRA is another lush Zoya purple.  It’s a medium dark bright purple, very Royal, almost a Cadbury’s purple!  It’s a pure crème polish, no shimmer, no glitter, but very beautiful – just pig-difficult to photograph.

Like all Zoyas, this dried darker on the nail than it looks in the bottle.  In the bottle, it’s got quite a cold vibe going on, but on the nail it’s deeper and richer and a lot less blue.

This is the photo I am happiest with and which seems to capture the colour quite closely -
Another good photo, the thumb did look like this is real life and this also captures how the nail colour looks less blue than the bottle.

Last photo - shows the Crackle contrast really well, but you can see how blue the varnish photographed.  The little finger has an overcoat of OPI's I Lily Love You (although it's in a pink suspension, on Mira it provided a mainly blue kaleidoscopic glitter.)
