I ordered Kiki, Lael, Zara, Julieanne, Chloe, and Lotus. 4 out of my 6 were shades of purple. It was unintentional, because I've never been a purple person..Zoya just has so many beautiful colors to pick from..the purples are gorgous.
Today, when I got off at my 1st job, I tried out "Lael." It's VERY messy application, for me anyways. It's a beautiful deep purple, more of a color for winter, but lovely nonetheless :) It was semi patchy and took 2 coats to not just look like I had grape jelly rubbed on my nails. :)
Below are the pictures of "Lael"..in my room only. It's still very stormy here so I can't get a good natural light picture.

After I painted my nails, I decided to try out the Fleck Effects polish, "Chloe"..a gorgeous pink base flakies jelly.

I'm not sure how I feel about the flecks on the purple..I guess maybe I don't like the orange and green against the dark purple base.
Happy nailing! <3
