Zoya America

America was released by Zoya as part of its La-Di-Da collection for summer 2009.  Officially described as a "bright bold medium retro tomato-red creme," this is a beautiful vibrant true red, gorgeous and resplendent in its radiance, with a juicy sexy 50s pin-up vibe. It registers as red even in the lowest of lights and is truly what I think of as a red statement polish. Every polish wardrobe needs a nice bright red creme and I can't imagine a better one than this.

Application was great. This is Zoya's formula at its best: fluid, creamy and dense with superb flow over the nail and excellent self-leveling qualities. Pigmentation is outstanding with completely opaque coverage in one coat if you paint carefully. Needless to say, my shaky hands needed two coats. Cleaning up needs a little more attention than usual as this polish will stain cuticles and leave wisps of red over the skin. America dries naturally in good time to a lovely glossy finish, which is enhanced and protected with a nice topcoat.

Photos show two delicious coats of America over treatment and basecoat with a topcoat of Seche le Vite.

America may be just a little cooler in person than it shows in my photos, but it isn't an overly cool red by any means. It's a true red! This is my second bottle of this polish. I gave the first one to my sister, but I could never get this beauty out of my head and finally tracked down another bottle on ebay. I'm so glad I did!

love,
