Meet Zoya Myrta, a beautiful orange-red (Zoya says coral) with a metallic, even foily finish. The color itself is super vibrant and the metallic gold shimmer adds a warm hue to the color. I used two coats and I absolutely loved wearing Myrta.
I wasn’t prepared to like Myrta as much as I did, mainly because I am of the opinion that orange doesn’t go very well with my skintone and usual choice of outfit. Nevertheless, this was such an attractive color that I just had to change my mind!
In the end I had a bit of tipwear (I type quite a lot, as you can imagine – at least a blogpost a day!), so I wanted to try a tapemanicure again. I opted for triangles, pointing towards my cuticles. For the triangles I used color club Artsy Craftsy. I decied to name those Harlekin Nails, as they somehow reminded me of Harlekins.
Artsy Crafty is a very dark dusty green creme polish, which was not a good choice to use over Myrta, because it doesn’t cover in one coat. In effect, the triangles turned out to be a bit fat. I also added a dot at the end of each triangle, in Illamasqua Swinger. I liked the design, but I think next time I’ll pick less contrasting colors, and definitely a polish that covers better.
This is what it looked like from further away. What do you think?
