Petra is from the Zoya Smoke Collection for Fall/Winter 2011. While bold and clear colors are usually my first choice, I have a serious addiction to dark and murky purples. Zoya Petra has in my opinion all a murky purple needs: it looks dark enough to be classy and elegant yet the dustiness makes it so special.

I applied two coats of Zoya Petra over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. The formula is on the thin side, I therefore applied a thin first coat and a bit a thicker second coat. Petra is another Zoya polish that dries to high shine, I therefore skipped the Top Coat.
To tune-up this mani I dabbed Hits Tokuio from their World Glitter Series on my nails
Hits Tokuio is VERY glitter dense and the pay-off with dabbing is incredible.
How would you vamp-up a vampy polish?
I order my Zoya polishes with Nailcare Club and as of last week European fans of Zoya can also order these gems with Pshiiit Boutique .
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
