Zoya Myrta NOTD

Hello again, greetings from the Midwest! Saturday is almost over and it has been such a beautiful day. This morning my dad and I picked up lots of top soil and composted manure and we finished planting his garden. We put in a few rows of pole beans, several mounds for yellow squash and sweet potatoes, about three jalapeños, a row of sunflower seeds, and some gourds. He'd already planted half of the garden yesterday morning and started a whole section weeks ago. So there is also four rows of corn, sweet peppers, several different varieties of tomatoes, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, rhubarb, horseradish, zucchini, and red potatoes. I'm so jealous that I won't be here when it's time to harvest and set to canning all these delicious garden vegetables.

Even though it was in the 90's and humid as all get out today it was nice working with my dad in the garden, talking about how awesome it is to grow things and listening to the race on the radio. Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!

Now that I've bragged about my dad's awesome garden, I can get to bragging about another awesome Zoya I picked up in the Earth Day Promo along with Meg: Myrta.


Myrta is a part of Zoya's summer Surf Collection (along with Meg) and is described on Zoya's website as a "warm medium orange coral with red undertone, gold and silver metallic shimmer, and a foil-like finish." While I do see Myrta as a coral, I also can't help but see a tomato red. We could chalk that up to my limited color description vocab!


For all of my NOTD photos I am wearing two velvety coats of Myrta with a coat of Seche QD top coat. Application was flawless, Zoya came through yet again with another great formula, and the polish flowed easily from rush to nail. You'll be happy to know that I had no issues with staining after removal but like Meg, the shimmer particles were a little rough to remove and I had to go back with extra cotton to get rid of all the leftover shimmer on my fingers and in my cuticles.

In fluorescent lighting the orange really comes out with the golden shimmer, Myrta really glows from within as if on fire! I got a few compliments on this color from several ladies at work, so I consider it a successful manicure.


Oooh, such a pretty color. The silver shimmer in Myrta really shines under low lighting or incandescent lights. I really cannot get enough of all the shades of coral and orange this season, I almost hope it never ends!

Have a good night lovelies!
