Zoya Rica

Back on Valentine's Day, Zoya had a promo where you got both free shipping and a free red polish of your choice with your purchase so I scooped up Shawn and then chose Rica as my complimentary red! I'm not a huge red polish person but Rica isn't your ordinary red--or even really a true red, for that matter. It's a coral-y shade with crazy bright gold shimmer. Rica practically glows. I love it!






I can see myself reaching for Rica a lot during the summer. It's such a bright, fun, almost citrus-y base and then it's packed with gold shimmer that catches the light like crazy! It seriously is about as shiny as a foil polish. The formula is really good too--no complaints. I used two coats and had the tiniest hint of VNL (which I'm admittedly a stickler for), so maybe next time I'll go for three. If you don't like coral, Zoya Tanzy (from the Sunshine Collection, same as Rica) gives you a similar look, only more orange.

    1. You're welcome! I think it makes a great freebie choice because it's something a little more special (at least I think so) than just a plain red.
