Zoya Julieanne

I don't know how this beautiful shade sat on my testing shelf for so long...  It's amazing!  Zoya Julieanne is from the 2010 Fall Wicked and Wonderful collection (Wicked) and is listed as a Byzantium purple sparkling metallic.  So apparently Byzantium is just a dark shade of purple - knowledge is power ^_^

I was absolutely thrilled with this color.  I always forget how smooth Zoya applies and am always happy with it when I put it on.  I used a base coat of Zoya Anchor, 2 coats of Juileanne, a top of Zoya Armor and another top of Seche Vite (to make it dry faster for me).

Look at that beautiful color in the bottle!  And holy cow, my nail just all of a sudden got super long!  It almost takes on a glass fleck look instead of a metallic.  Lovely.

In the shade, you can really see the richness of this color.  The ONLY downside was that inside in ridiculous yellow light (I hate yellow light bulbs), this color was super dark - almost black.  I was in church with my son when he said "I like your nail polish" (we're still working on indoor voices) and I noticed two women kind of look at me and wrinkle up their noses.  Oops.  ^_^  I ended up wearing this color for a couple of days because it was just so stunning.  Love it.

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