Zoya - Bevin

4.16.2012

I received Zoya's Bevin nail polish in my April Birchbox -- more to come on that later -- and am very pleased with both its color and its wear. Bevin's color is unlike anything else I have in my nail polish drawer, and trust me... there are A LOT of polishes in there. Zoya's website describes it as "a dusty, medium sage green with teal tones and a creamy opaque finish. A stylish and unique shade for when you want something different from the usual mint green." I couldn't agree more. Very light mint shades look awful against my skin and this is about as minty as I can go before the redness in my hands becomes way too prominent. I have a love affair with dusty shades and this one is no different -- though not my favorite dusty shade (that high honor is reserved for Essie's Sew Psyched!).

As for wear, this polish lasted very long without chipping and maintained a beautiful shine (go Nail Tek base/top coat!). It lasted longer than I even wanted and I ended up changing the polish pre-chipage in order to match my dress for a bridal shower this past weekend. How often does that happen, you ask? Well, never. I was really impressed with this formula and plan to check out even more of Zoya's creamy, opaque shades since I recently discovered their website lists color finish (in this case "Cream") and scores the color's intensity (in this case 5, with 1 being sheer and 5 being opaque). Being able to check all the right boxes and have potential polish matches presented before me is exactly what I've been looking for.

  1. i got the same polish in my box! this color looks awesome on you! i really like it, but it just doesn't look totally right with my skin tone the way it does with yours. maybe i'll try it as an accent nail with my tried-and-true essie master plan?!

  2. Zoya is an amazing company and I have found that all of their polishes last FOREVER which is awesome! And if you don't already have an online Zoya account, when you sign up using someone's referral link, each person gets a coupon for a free nail polish -- also awesome! It will take you to the "Avery" page which is my current Zoya fave and you can sign up from there!

    here's my link if you're interested!
