NOTD: Zoya Heidi

A few months ago, I swapped for some Zoya nail polishes and this is one of them. Zoya Heidi. It is a fairly bright true orange (I wouldn't say it leans pink). I can't say I'm a huge fan of oranges on me and I'll probably take this off tomorrow (or layer something else on top). The formula applied a little thick and streaky for me (could be because I'm the 2nd owner to this bottle); these photos were taken after 3 coats. I also felt this dried to a more matte or satin finish, so I applied a shiny topcoat on top.
This photo isn't very color-accurate. The next one is better.
In other news, my husband is away for a conference for today and tomorrow. It will be the first time since we moved in together that we've spent the night apart (that's not exactly true, while we were still dating and visiting his parents we slept in different beds - but but this time we're in different states!). I know, I'm a big pile of mush but I miss him!

I'm not a huge fan of orange polishes on myself either, I always like how they look so I try to rock them... but never works out! I do like this color though, and I don't think that it looks bad on you! xo & i'm sorry about your husband being away :(

I hate orange! But this looks gorgeous. I am lemming sooo many Zoya polishes right now. I totally understand you, unfortunately :( My boyfriend moved 1000 miles away right after our one year anniversary. I haven't seen him since the end of March when I visited, and he won't be here until the beginning of May.

@Caitlin: I'll admit, today it's growing on me but it still seems crazy bright (and somehow brighter than other "brights") but I'm still used to more muted tones or typical polish shades! Thankfully, he's only gone till tonight. I miss him!

@Heather: Oh gosh, I never was quite able to do long distance relationships when I was dating. I feel for you. =/ Thankfully, DH is coming home tonight and I'll be otherwise occupied this evening anyway since Glee is back (!!!!!!!)
