Zoya Professional Lacquer in Nana

Zoya — Nana (Professional Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Zoya 2015 Summer, Island Fun

I recently picked up six Zoyas during their Color Cube sale last month, and here’s another swatch from that batch of colors.

Today’s polish is from Zoya’s 2015 Summer collection, Island Fun (the cream finish half of Zoya’s usual dual-releases). I’ve previously reviewed Cecilia and Talia from this collection, and have Serenity yet to come.

Nana (ZP800) is described by Zoya as a “deep summer fuchsia”. It’s a rich, raspberry pink cream. Zoya calls it a warm color, though I do see blue tones in it, as well. I’d say it’s well-balanced between warm and cool. Your skintone will probably make it lean more to one color temperature than the other. It reads a little blue-toned on me, due to my yellow-toned skin.

If I’m honest, this isn’t the most exciting shade. It’s certainly pretty, if this is your kind of color, but I’d mostly wear this on my toes. Not enough oomph for the fingers!

Application is lovely, as is typical for Zoya, and the polish is opaque in two coats. I almost wanted to do three coats, though. It seemed a little too thin and I prefer a plusher look! The polish dries to a glossy shine.

  1. Yeah this one is a yawn-fest! Have you ever done dupes or looked for similar shades in your collection? Also, I was curious – do you store your polishes by brand or by colour family? I keep mine by colour family.

    • Haha, you’re so mean to fuchsias! 😀 You know, I’m generally not interested in finding dupes in my stash. I mean, I have so many red creams…there must be so many dupes. Sigh. It’s more interesting to find a dupe for a less common shade, though, that’s for sure!

      I organize by brand. I like the way certain bottle stack together (Essies and Zoyas are great for this), and in my head, that’s how I “find” a color, anyway! Then by color within each brand. I wish I was as organized as this is making me sound, though 😀

      • Yeah don’t know what it is, I think fuchsia is old lady! 😛
        I get why you keep your nail polishes by brand – they do look much nicer that way. I guess I’m not as good remembering what shades I have within each brand… I’ll remember the shade name but sometimes I confuse the brands!
