Hello my lovelies! Today I wanted to paint a bit of sunshine back in my life because sadly I've been sick with some kind of coughy, congesty, fatiguing lameness that has kept me from being my usual productive self. You know what? Nails I can do even while sick! Nobody sees the bags under my eyes or reddened nose when it's just pics of my nails, and BOY does Zoya Rica lift my mood!
Rica is a polish I recently purchased from one of Zoya's promotions for "3 free polishes" where you just have to pay for shipping, which comes to around $12. $4 for each polish is definitely not a bad deal considering they are usually $8 each. Whenever these deals come around I find myself Googling swatches like a mad woman on a mission and Rica stood out from the crowd and called to me. I'm perfect for Spring! I'm like a tropical drink on the beach! I'm SPARKLY! I didn't need too much convincing. ;)
This color is a tangerine glass-flecked polish which has glowing pink-to-yellow effect depending on how the light hits it. In the shade it flattens and shows more of a true orange with orange microshimmer throughout, but in the sun or in bright lights the gold-glinting brightness really shines though. I loooove multi-dimensional polishes like this! Here I used Seche Clear base coat, 3 thin coats of Zoya Rica, and Seche Vite top coat.
Hopefully this happy shade will kick the sick out of my system this week along with lots of hot tea and rest, which I am going to do right now!
