Zoya Cristina Christinna

Boo on Zoya for over spelling such a simple and beautiful name looool...

  Anyways, today I have my Zoya namesake. I actually happen to like it quite a lot even though the color is the complete opposite of who I am. I'm loud and obnoxious and weird and random and this color is delicate, soft and totally bridal.

  The reason why I only have a swatch is because I had intended this on being the base for a bridal water marble for my besties series but I kinda failed miserably because Zoya's Raven was just not made for marbling :(. But moving on.... I will eventually achieve my bridal marble... For now please enjoy a swatch of this lovely color.
Christinna is a lovely pearly White with just a touch of Silvery Grey. This color has a slightly sheer formula but it applies easy and dries quick. I really love this because it is such a wearable white. Here I have Three coats and no top coat. Pardon the janky ring finger nail. I had to patch it up because of a low break that could suck majorly.

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. As your namesake, I perfectly agree with your observation! I am loudy, a little crazy, I suffer of verbal diarrhoea and I don't feel represented by such a calm and relaxing shade. Even if I like it! ;)

  4. I have a feeling that despite the watsrmarbling-gone wrong you will still find a way to incorporate this beauty into the "wedding series" ;)
    I wish zoya made a "Marta". I'd buy it too ;)

  5. LOL @ your first sentence hahaha... this polish looks great on you! My Zoya namesake (ALSO spelled wrong btw -- Jaime instead of the wonderful JAMIE) is absolutely HIDEOUS. *cries in a corner* (It's actually not that bad, I'm just being a brat =D) Anyway, I always love reading your posts and admiring your pics. Just stopping by to give you some <3

  7. Oooh thank you for doing this swatch! I just got a whole mess of spoons from Zoya, really the only way I can really tell what the color will be IRL.

    This was my pick for a white--I generally don't like cremes, so I got a few white spoons and this one rocked!

    Totally overspelled tho! (from a "Krista" who never had my name spelled correctly in school lol)

  14. Ooh, I like this! It's so girly and sweet :). Wondering when Zoya is gonna do my name sake polish and what it'll look like.

  15. Nice pearly shade! I think this will be a great base for stamping or other nailpolish.

  16. Could you tell us how you patch up a low break? I always clip them all down, and that makes me sad.

  17. I usually don't like these shades that lean to white - have a few for my collection and kind of figure enough. But this one is got something about it that peaks my interest. It's on my spoon list for next order to hold it up to my skin now. Thanks...Zoya either made my name a long time ago and dropped it or they never did...not sure. I have only followed Zoya for the past year - don't know how I missed out for soooo long!

  18. This color is gorgeous! It really looks good on your skin tone. Weird how they spell that.

    Doesn't breaking a nail really suck?!
