Zoya: Shivon

I was in a real autumn mood when I went digging through my older polishes and found Shivon, a vintage beauty from Zoya.  I don't know if it's officially "vintage" because Zoya still sell it but it's been around for quite a while!
 
Shivon is from Zoya's 2008 (Eep! That is a while ago!) Flourish collection and to me it's pretty much autumn in a manicure. The rich reddish bronze with its subtle gold duochrome shimmer is reminiscent of the changing colour of the leaves around here.  Because of the complexity Shivon is one of those chameleon colours which somehow goes with everything and can appear either cool or warm depending on what you accent it with.  Application was excellent considering I've had this polish hanging around for easily 4 or 5 years as it painted on smoothly in 2 coats, taking care of my colour craving.

What nail or makeup colours do you love wearing in autumn/fall?

  2. That's really pretty and very autumnal! So how long can you keep polish around? I guess it just depends?

    1. I'm naughty and don't pay much attention to expiry dates on polish - I find it can last many years if it's well sealed and kept in cool, dark conditions. Of course thinner drops can bring an old polish back from the dead too!

  4. Looks like leaves and sunsets all at once!

    I wouldn't say anything is vintage until it stops being produced or we're looking at things from the '90s... :)
