Sometimes I end up with a polish that I grab because I know that I don't own anything like it. The problem with this is that sometimes I don't particularly like the shade.
Unfortunately that is the case with Zoya Akyra. The shade is beautiful I just am not drawn to it!
Zoya Akyra is a green teal shimmer from Zoya's Utopia Collection for Winter 2007. It has a dark base color but a light shimmer and this combination makes it very unique. I had Kotori and wanted to see if it was at all similar- its not. Kotori is more blue and Akyra is more green.
You need to build Akyra up more than I would have liked but application was still fine. I needed 2-3 thin coats for each nail. This sort of color would be best in winter in my opinion and it looks good on most skintones.
Akyra is a shimmer but on the nail it doesn't look shimmery if that makes sense. I have nothing against the application or this nail polish its just not my favorite shade. I want to hear what you think though!
