Zoya Belle

The polish I have for you tonight is the last (but not least) polish from the Birchbox Blogger Collection, Zoya Belle. This polish was designed by Capitol Hill Style and is described as being a "coppery pink which features microscopic bits of iridescent glitter."

Like the other two polishes in this box set, Belle is a sheer polish, though it's not a jelly like the other two-- this one has a beautiful shimmer. I would call it a coral pink, though in natural light you can see the coppery aspects of this polish. I still had to use for four coats to make this polish pretty opaque, but Belle was super easy to work with, just like the other two polishes. That was a relief, because I was actually afraid it was going to be the sheerest of the three shades but it built up very nicely. The shimmer is just amazing!

Again, the top pictures are too orange. While Belle does have some orange to it, it is a predominantly pink polish-- it's the light bulbs!

Here's Belle layered over Coraline:

And Belle over Kate:

Belle is really stunning, and because it's sheer you can wear it by itself or layer which makes for some fun possibilities. It's a great shimmery color for summer-- this would be great for a pedicure.

Hope everyone had a good Saturday! Mine was pretty quiet, which is just the way I like it! Got some swatching done, got to read a little, pamper myself-- basically an all-around good day!
