NOTD: Zoya's Ivanka



Ivanka (along with Jo) was one of my most desired shades from the Zoya range - yet I had to wait ages to order it as it was pretty consistently out of stock. I think sometimes it's a bad idea to hype up shades in my head as my expectations always become too high. Does that mean Ivanka is a dud - not at all - it just didn't change my life and perhaps that's a little bit of an unrealistic expectation for a nail polish anyway ;)

Anyway onto the important stuff what is Ivanka -well Zoya call it a "mermaid green sparkling metallic" but I'd say it's more citrus than mermaid if that makes sense to you. Either way being more of a glitter finish this was more work to get off but it's a great bright for anytime of year. All photos were taken with 2 coats in natural sunlight.





A lovely shade from a quality polish company. It may not be a HG colour for me but it definitely gets the job done.
