Zoya Kotori

For a long time, I had been in love with the beautiful swatches of Zoya Kotori from various bloggers. However, it isn't that easy to get hold of Zoya polishes in Singapore. When I finally managed to get hold of several bottles from Doll up nails, I was elated!

After trying out Zoya roxy and Kotori however, I feel a little let down :| I do like Kotori, but I don't love it. It's pretty but not as attention grabbing as I would like. I expected it to have some sort of "inner glow" of blue sparkles, as if some the God of Nail Polishes had bestowed glorious divine force/power onto Kotori. Unfortunately, no such thing. Sigh~

Yet, Zoya Kotori is a beautiful polish. She is a whole galaxy of blackened blue shimmer contained in a clear base. She's not loud or attention grabbing, but she does subtly entice you. She sings a siren song, slowly mesmerising you with her shimmering nightgown of glittering blue dust.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

  1. I'm sorry you were let down by this one, I think it is stunning on you, even without the 'inner glow' =)

  2. lol~ Thanks for the compliment! It is still a pretty polish, though i think the bluish shimmer of kotori matches the anna sui 101 of my new post perfectly! :) hmmmm.... maybe i should try a layering of 101 on kotori soon :D
