What is noteworthy:
As stated on their website,
Zoya’s 300-plus stylish nail polish shades are all formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor free. The cutting-edge formula has also won a Women’s Health Magazine independent panel award for longest-lasting polish.
Areetha is a really pretty shade of purple that reminds me of the morning glory flower. It’s a bold lilac frost that looks absolutely incredible in sunlight. The photos just don’t do it justice, and I’d tried but failed to capture the mesmerising shimmer.
This is one of those colours is overlooked by a lot of nail bloggers. In fact, if you were to google Areetha, you won’t find many swatches. It doesn’t seem to be as popular and I have read many complaints about the visible brush strokes… ummm yeah sure, blame the nail polish.
I will say that application of Areetha is not as forgiving as say, glitter polishes, but when done properly, you get a pretty cool frosty pearl effect and that extra little bit of metallic ooomph. That is, of course, merely my humble opinion and I am in no way an expert.
Zoya makes extraordinary purple nail polishes, and not a single one of them are alike, which is a remarkable feat considering the fact that they do have a shitload of purples! This is fast becoming one of my top 10 Zoya polishes.
