Throwback Thursday! Zoya — Midori (Professional Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Collection: Zoya 2009 Summer, Ooh La La

I have two polishes from this particular Zoya collection, Midori and Tallulah, and they are among my very favorite green and blue polishes!

Midori (ZP482) is described by Zoya as “a glowing medium apple green with yellow undertones and strong gold shimmer”, which really tells you all you need to know. It’s adorable and chock full of beautiful microglitter. I love it!

This shade is named for the Japanese muskmelon liqueur, Midori, which was launched in 1978. The word means green in Japanese. I’ve never tried it and am a little curious, now! It does, however, give me a little pause that Kim Kardashian was one of their spokespeople (despite claiming to be not much of a drinker)—she was replaced by Candice Accola in 2013.

Because the world needs more pics of Kim Kardashian.
My apologies. The nail polish does match the liqueur, though.

Two coats gives perfect and even coverage. It remains in Zoya’s core collection, so I heartily recommend it, especially for warm summer days.
