Zoya Nimue

Okay, I'll be honest. Three of the polishes from the Smoke set of Zoya's fall offering have been neglected - on purpose. I knew I'd like all of the cremes and three of the shimmers, but Nimue, Marina and Tao just did not appeal to me. I hadn't seen any swatches that just made me swoon, I guess.
So the other day, I thought let me just go ahead and try this - because Nathalie had requested to see it. I am in love with Nimue! I did not expect to like it, but I have done a complete turnaround. Okay, we all know that Zoya has become a master with gold shimmer, right? They've got a metric ton of beautiful polish shades with stunning gold shimmer. I think what they're trying to create with Nimue, Marina and Tao is the same effect, with silver shimmer. It's not quite the same, but it's very beautiful. I can imagine if they keep going, they'll really master this. I do hope so, because they've got a good start!
Nimue is a slightly reddish mid toned purple, shot through with silver shimmer. It gives the polish an ethereal quality. I used two coats here. I keep repeating myself, but you might want to click these to see that pretty shimmer.

Guh. So beautiful.
