Zoya Yasmeen: The Most Beautiful, Non-Vampy, Non-Blackened, Purple Nail Polish Ever!

Good morning dear readers!

Today I would like to share with you Zoya Yasmeen. I am going to use an expression that my mother loves - it's an oldie but a goodie! For all of you purple lovers out there, this is a MUST have. Zoya Yasmeen is a deep purple that I don't consider to be vampy and it isn't blackened either. It has the most fabulous sheen and shimmer to it. The shimmer that runs through Yasmeen is very interesting - sometimes it looks like a pink shimmer and sometimes it looks like a metallic gold shimmer. The application is great, as we've come to expect from Zoya; not too thick, not too thin, and opaque at one coat. All swatches below are two coats of polish and SV top coat. 

Artificial light photo - in this photo you can really see the gold and pink shimmer!

Another artificial light photo - I did some finger contortions so that you could see the deep and fabulous purple that I am seeing at home. 

The colors that you see in Yasmeen really change depending on the light. In any light though, Yasmeen is a big winner in my book! 

Thanks for looking and hope to see you again soon. I apologize if I don't post again for a few days. My boyfriend and I moved from Michigan to sunny California about 4 months ago and ever since we got here we've had a pretty steady stream of visitors (yay!) from back home. I am excited that two of our very close friends will be here visiting us for the next few days. I promise that I'll be back to posting after they leave. I certainly hope that you'll be back here reading!


  1. ohhh, i like this color a LOT! I'm totally not hip on nail polish though (yeah, uhm I just painted my nails with some great Sally Hansen purple potion last night...LOL! I was inspired to paint my nails after reading your blog, LOL). So where do you get this polish at and how much does it cost?

  2. Very pretty color og purple. I especially like that indoor picture.

    Have a great weekend with your friends!

  3. Hi Jen,

    Yay I am so glad that you painted your nails! And purple too! Zoya's run $6 bucks each and you can get them at There is actually a really good coupon code right now for THREE, yes three free polishes at - look at my post from 10/15. You spend $20 and then get to pick 3 free polishes of your choice. Not bad at all :) Also if you like OPI polishes I buy them online from head 2 toe beauty or 88 beauty - they are cheap at those sites - links are on my blog.

    Hi Brooke - thanks :)


  4. This is a great color. Thanks for posting a pic. I have it in my cart right now. I am trying to replace all the OPI bottles full of chemical crap I own.

  5. Hi Princess!

    Glad I was able to share the coupon code with you! I hope you order LOTS of fun polishes.
