This is my first real pink polish. Can you believe that? I’ve never been big on pinks, so the few that I did own were so light they were almost white or glitter. I think I can name all the pinks I own on one hand and they are all baby pink cremes or some form of glitter like Butter London “Rosie Lee” or Deborah Lippmann “Candy Shop”. Ok, I own maybe 10 pinks total but I have never ventured into the real pinks. I was never one to pick out a true fuchsia or hot pink. I always thought they were too ordinary, too girly, too obvious, and too normal. But when I saw swatches of the Zoya Beach collection, this one caught my eye. I know the picture is a little dark, it was slightly overcast that day, but even looking at this picture reminds me of how much I really liked this polish.
Zoya “Shelby” is a true bubblegum pink creme. It leans to the blue side of the pinks and I honestly think this really flatters my skin tone and I was surprised about how much I liked it. This polish made me feel like Barbie, and I kept thinking that it made my nails look fake. This is 2 coats and opaque. There were no problems with the formula at all, it was a breeze to work with. In all honestly, this may have opened the door to other pink polishes because I really liked wearing this. This is the second in a long line of Zoya polishes I still have to wear, but I really want to put it on again. I can tell its about to be summer because I’m craving light and bright creme polishes.
