The other day I read a comment on Zoya’s Facebook page that had high praises for Neeka, Zoya. Basically, there hasn’t been a person who doesn’t like Neeka. I am not about to be that person because I, like many others absolutely LOVE it! Neeka is a nice, dark (but not really dark) purple with gold specs in it. It is really an amazing color that looks good on all skin tones. It only takes two coats for full coverage and it’s just awesome, nothing more to say! I decided to use It’s My Year by OPI on as an accent nail (on my ring fingers).

It’s My Year, is from OPI’s Miss Universe collection and it is a gorgeous maroon with gold sparkles. It is very similar to Faye, Zoya except it has a greater emphasis on the maroon than the gold. It’s My Year sparkles and looks amazing in the sun. Too bad it’s only on the 2 ring fingers. I am almost tempted (for my next manicure) to do all of my nails with It’s My Year because it is that amazing!

Without further adieu, here is Neeka, Zoya with It’s My Year, OPI on the ring fingers!

Ok, so I know that dark/wine colors are more of an autumn and fall color, but Iย am willing to commit a faux pas once in a while.

When I look at Berry by American Apparelย I see my absolute, most favorite color ever: maroon. Berry is what I picture when I think of maroon or burgundy. It’s a nice, deep red wine color and I LOVE it. It looks really good on dark skin tones and it applies full coverage with two coats, even one coat could suffice if need be.

I absolutely love this color, don’t be surprised if you see another post on it in the fall… or even in the next few days (ย I might change-up my Berry and add something to it. Maybe. You’ll just have to be patient if you want to find out)

For now, here’s Berry, American Apparel:
