Zoya had a great sale recently and I took the opportunity to purchase 3 nail polishes for only $12! Today I have Rihana from the 2008 Pulse collection.
Rihana is hard to describe. On the website it looked like a deep burgundy but in person it is actually more plum/purple with a magenta pearl metallic finish. I’m really glad it isn’t burgundy because this shade took me out of my comfort zone and I’m enjoying the ride. This is a vampy shade while still being feminine and very wearable. The mix of deep purple and pink magenta makes Rihana suitable for warm and cool skin tones.
My nail tech added a stripe of silver but left the rest of my nail without polish. I wish he would have painted the entire nail with Rihana and then added the silver stripe, but whatever, I was too tired to argue.
Two coats gives full coverage and it dries fast. Zoya polishes are three free and available at Zoya.com for $9 retail.
Bottom Line: Rihana is a gorgeous plum/purple/wine chameleon that is sexy and looks amazing on any skin tone.
