Zoya Mira

Moving on down the line of Zoya's Summer 2011 Sunshine and Summertime - today I have Zoya Mira, a "blue toned medium purple with dusty lavender tones and an opaque cream finish.  For a muted yet colorful purple that isn't too dark."  Now, when I first saw this color, I giggled at the name, because in Spanish, mira means "look", and as a teenager, it was popular to say "mira, look it" (which is totally redundant, but also hilarious at the time)...  Okay yeah, it's kind of weird but what can I say.  I used a base coat of Zoya Get Even, 2 coats of Mira, and a top of Zoya Armor.  Formula was very nice and even.

Now, this color looks a lot like China Glaze Grape Pop, but I haven't had any time for comparisons just yet.  That's one reason why I'm doing my nail project, so I can pull comparisons all the time.  I have a little over 50 nails done, so I'm only 5% into it (oy).  Very beautiful purple though.

Here in the shade, you can really see the blue tones coming through - I'm not sure what I like more... I'm a huge blurple lover in general.

Indoors with the flash... very Barney purple like.  Great creme but not entirely unique.  I promise to have comparisons again soon!

Zoya can be purchased on their website for $8/bottle.
