What it is:
A metallic nail polish from Zoya’s Flourish collection.
What it claims:
According to the Zoya website,
Zoya Nail Polish in Shivon can be best described as: A dark rose gold with hints of purple and bronze and strong gold duochrome shimmer. This color flickers and changes with light and movement so you’ll never be bored.
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.
With flash. 3 coats of Shivon on middle fingernail.
In person, Shivon is a pinkish mulberry with plenty of gold shimmer.
The website described this shade as a cool-toned colour, but on me, it was definitely warm. I think this could be due to the gold shimmer.
Sadly, this wasn’t a winner in my book. I didn’t really see much purple or bronze, and there were strong hints of pink in it. The formula pretty much sucked too. It was gloopy and the more I tried to fix the application, the worse it was.
The reason I was drooling over Shivon for so long was because I’d seen some gorgeous swatches that blew me away. I’d never imagined that the real thing would be so disappointing. Either I had a defective bottle, or the google swatches were misleading.
