The beauty of a Finnish girl

Another day, another green Zoya - this time the classic Suvi. My photos aren't accurate, this blackened emerald beauty is much prettier in reality, and I really hope you've seen her before, preferably on your own nails!






I did three coats. Suvi is a tad sheer, but otherwise I had no major formulation errors causing me trouble. The shimmer is borderlining pearl, but is still msotly just fine. I was a bit concerned while painting, afraid there would be a lot of visible brush strokes, but it dries just fine. Furthermore, I am sure you all own this pretty thing by now, so I won't elaborate further.

No matter what, when I see Suvi, complete with her name and all, I think of Finland, weird metal, woods and a thousand lakes. And almost albino blonde women, who are in some cases named Suvi.

Swedish expression of the day:
Finlands sak är vår ~ Finland's cause is our cause
A unifying phrase for Swedes committed to volunteering in the Finnish Winter War, during World War II.

  3. Den är så snygg! Älskar mörka gröna måste jag säga. Letar efter den ultimata gröna färgen jämt, vilket ju resulterar i att jag har för många redan..

  6. That is so pretty! :) I love most green colours, but unfortunately I don't have any Zoyas yet.

    Btw, in Estonian "suvi" means "summer". So I think of that every time I see pics of this polish. :D
