This konad uses 3 coats of Zoya Mimi as a base. I was a little wary of using 3 coats of a Zoya polish simply because, most of the time, Zoya doesn't play nice with me after 2 coats. But I had no issues. I don't know if that's my TC (Rush) or the polish itself, however. Honestly, when I saw Mimi when various nail bloggers reviewed the Sparkle collection, I wasn't wowed by it. Just about everyone that reviewed it oooh'd and ahhh'd, but it just didn't do anything for me in pics. I decided to pick this up (along with Nidhi) on a whim during the Zoya exchange. Afterall, I already had Charla and Ivanka from the same collection, but I wasn't expecting mych from Mimi. Well, holy smokes, was I pleasantly surprised when I put it on. So much so, that I'm planning on picking up Gilda and Alegra (the 2 from this collection that I don't own). I know everyone claims that Charla is the standout in the collection, and well, it kinda is... but Mimi comes in close behind her (yep... I actually like Mimi a bit more than Ivanka *gasp*). Mimi is a medium toned byzantine purple shimmer that has the same glass-flecked, foil finish as Charla, and the same golden shimmer, but unfortunately, it just doesn't translate well onto computer screens. This one defintely is a "try it to really like it" polish. If you are a purple lover you will love it. Or, if you are like me, a former purple that has become a bit disenchanted with the color, definitely give this one a try. It might having you falling back in love with all your purples.
I then applied a konad design over it using Konad Special Polish in White as the stamp color. I don't know the plate number off the top of my head, and I'm too lazy to go hunt it out right now, but if anyone is interested, I can check it out in the morning.
Zoya Mimi is part of the recent Sparkle collection as is available at Zoya.com and at various etailers and on eBay.
