Zoya Rihana

A rich wine or plum-colored nail polish always catches my eye. Most of the time though, it fails to impress me when the color is finally on my nails. Thank goodness for this wonderful shade from Zoya! I am talking about Rihana, one of the shades from their Pulse Collection.

Can this shade be any yummier?! You be the judge!

Zoya’s website describes this shade as “Deep, rich plum-purple with subtle red and magenta pearl shimmer. Purple mixed with cool and warm tones so it will flatter most skin tones.” I say their description is spot on!

Zoya Rihana (gorgeous!)

I mean, just look at it! Wow! That’s all I can say. Show in pictures is 2 thin coats with no top coat. It’s quite pigmented and drying time is pretty fast compared to most of Zoya’s polishes. I offered this up for a swap and almost regretted it after seeing the pictures today. Ah, maybe next time. It’s the one that got away for me. I mean, just look at that gorgeous shimmer!

    • I have China Glaze Stella and they’re really close. I don’t see a point to own both unless you really want to. :)
