Zoya Pasha – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 30 - 2010

I awoke to a surprise parcel last Saturday…

Courtesy of a very sweet friend, this beautiful chocolate milk of a nail polish now holds pride of place in my collection.  I’d been lemming Zoya Pasha for the best part of a year and with such long-term longings inevitably comes a touch of pedestal placement!  I have to say, it didn’t disappoint.

3 coats for a smooth finish, Pasha is a silvery milk chocolate with a slight metallic sheen.  It applied beautifully with no dragging at the cuticles, my only slight issue was with a couple of bubbles which I think had more to do with my impatience at wanting to see it applied, like NAO! as opposed to any formula problems.

I’m so happy to finally have this in my hands, thank you liloo – your generosity delighted me and I may have been bitten by the Zoya bug!

    This is one of my top five polishes of ALL TIME. I adore it. One of my readers told me it looked like old ladies’ tights but I don’t care. I think it’s beautiful. Love that silver shimmer.

    Ooh, that’s so pretty! I’m on a self-imposed polish buying ban but I may have to make an exception and try to track that one down….

    Beautiful!
    Apparently just saying “beautiful” is too short so I’d better type this as well!

    ZzzZZZz boring colour 😛
    just kidding, it does actually looks nice, reminds me of a petit four meets glazed chestnut. yum!

  5. Darnit! I had this shade in my shopping cart when I made my last Zoya order, and at the very last minute I took it out because I couldn’t find any swatches online that really sold me on it. And of course now I see your beautiful photo and I am SO regretting not getting it. This shade looks so lovely on you!

    Great now I want some ice cold chocolate milk…hehe

  7. I bought this during their last promo and I still haven’t tried it! Shame on me. Now that I know it looks good on us pasties, I’ll definitely be giving it a shot soon.
