Zoya Nidhi

Zoya Nidhi is listed as a rich red sparkling metallic from the Summer 2010 Sparkle Collection.  I must say, I was not in love with this color as I have been the rest.  It has the same glass fleck glitter in it as the rest, but maybe to me, there will never be another China Glaze Ruby Pumps, so I don't care?  Either way, this is still a very pretty color but doesn't like the sunshine at all.  It looks like a creme almost in full sun.

I used a base coat of Seche Retain followed by Zoya Anchor.  I used 2 coats of Nidhi and topped it with a layer of Zoya Armor.  Because I was only swatching and not long wearing, I didn't wear any Seche Vite with it.

All the "metallic" is just lost with the sun - still a very rich red as described, but just not the WOW of Charla or Mimi.

In indirect sun, you can start to see the glitter again.  However, I felt like I had a dupe for this color after taking this picture (more on that later).

The glitter is a bit lost in the shade as well - such a weird color.  It's odd that the bottles look JAM PACKED with glitter but it's very loosely translated on the nail because it's glass fleck, not glitter.  Overall a nice color - great formula.

Zoya [official website] can be purchased on their website for $7/bottle.
