And for my last Zoya untried, I have one of the beauties from the Touch collection. I have got a tooon of pictures to you because I honestly couldn't pick. She's gorgeous.

2 coats. Mmm that's good stuff. Minka is a light nude color. From swatches I had seen, she looked to have yellow undertones, but on me she looked pretty neutral. Does that mean I'm yellow? I always thought I had pink undertones.

Anyway, in the sunlight she has a lovely pearly shimmer that I really like. In the shade she looks pretty much like a creme. The formula was nice, but as with Neeka and Yara I find that she leveled really slowly and could have been a hair thinner. But a really small hair. Not like a human hair, more like those little hairy things that cells use to move them around. Flagella? Cilia? Those things. A very small hair.

Anyway, I'd seen some people try matte nudes, so I decided to give it a go.

It was nice, but I liked her better shiny. And I decided that you guys would probably want to see more than just swatches, so I did a little nail art for ya.

First I freehanded some tips (sorry, not my neatest work!) with Essie Midnight Cami

Then I added a little flower decal on my ring finger, sent to me by the lovely Leslie.

voila!

I really like Minka. I think nudes are really pretty and subtle. I know some people don't like them, but I really do! They make me feel really classy. Which is not to be confused with klassy, an entirely different feeling that one often gets when watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Do you like nudes, or do you think they're "klassy"?

  1. I like Minka as well! Honeybee Gardens Nude Beach looks very similar, but not as glossy. :)

  13. @Polish Amor: As much as I hate to admit it, I kind of like some of the Kardashian colors. I'll have to wait till they come out to see how they look in real life though!

    @Leslie: I think it's kind of hilarious! The Kardashian Klan is Konstantly Krazy.
