I posted a quick swatch of this polish last week, in trying to show all the new Fall polishes I’ve picked up in the past month – now here is the full review.
Neeka is from the ‘Mirrors’ part of Zoya’s Fall 2011 collection, which contains 6 polishes with either frosty or shimmery finishes (as opposed to the creme finishes in the ‘Smoke’ part of the collection. Neeka is a dusty purple polish with pink, gold, and green shimmer flecks throughout. The shimmer doesn’t overwhelm the polish and remains somewhat demure, though clearly visible to the naked eyed.
I tend to gravite toward these murky, purple shades often, especially in the cooler months (check out my nail wheels for proof). Perhaps I’m getting a bit over-exposed to these colors, as I’m not as over-the-moon for Neeka as I expected I would be. It’s a beautiful polish, made unique by the shimmer, and looks very flattering on my skintone. But I’m not staring at my nails in awe (which I’m sort of making an unformal prerequisite to being a ‘keeper’ in my stash, starting…now) and already I’m dreaming of changing the polish – again (which would be my fourth change in a week…getting a bit outta hand here!).
What I think *might* be happening, is that I have so many untried nail polish to wear, that I’m just a tad overwhelmed and can’t appreciate them fully because I know I have another 25 to try out. Something to consider anyway; I won’t discount Neeka just yet.
Anyway, application for Neeka was easy, a touch thicker but flowed well. My brush is slightly wonky so it was a bit trickier to apply than normal, but nothing serious.
Details: Two coats of polish, with one coat of Sally Hansen Age Correct base coat and one of Seche Vite top coat.

Do you find you get oversaturated with one color and lose interest, or does your love stay true forever? Which shades do you normally gravitate toward?
