Zoya Anastasia Swatches

I barely hit the "publish" button on my Zoya Haul post before dashing off to the bathroom to slap on one of the dazzling colors. I chose Anastasia because it looked so intriguing in the bottle. And it doesn't disappoint!

On the nail it is a really complex, changeable color. Under darker lighting, it looks to be a warm brown with a burgundy shimmer. In brighter lighting, it looks more burgundy with gold shimmer. Pretty weird, but ultimately awesome.
It kind of reminds me of the leaves changing color in the Fall and I could easily see sporting this at a fancy Thanksgiving dinner. I think that it would look especially great on warm skin tones.

At any rate, if you look closely you will probably notice the
slightest bit of tip wear. I took this pic about 24 hours after application. My nails spend a large part of the day tap, tap, tapping away on a keyboard so I imagine I get a bit more tip wear than others. I'm interested to see when the first chip occurs. Usually this happens between days 1 and 2 for me but I have high hopes for Zoya.

What do you think? Is this a color for you?
