I just noticed something; for a blog entitled Pinkginger's A Thing of Beauty,I don't feature the colour pink very often. I should rename this blog Green Ginger's A Thing of Beauty,or Purple Ginger's A Thing of Beauty because those colours have appeared way more than pink! I should hang my head in shame :-/
I'm hoping to change that,so for the next 7 days I will be featuring pink exclusively.
Today's pink is Zoya Hayden!
I purchased Hayden because I thought it would be good addition to my collection of Barbie pinks.It's a light-pink neon with a mixed bag of gorgeousness;a shimmery pink base,silver micro-glitter,and iridescent blue shimmer.It's lovely!
I wore it while doing errands and received tons of compliments, and it was the spark for a very involved conversation with a lady at the post office.
She complimented me on my colour choice and started telling about her love for nail polish.
It turns out,she's a manicure fanatic,who cannot leave the house without painted nails.
(a woman after my own heart.)
We talked about colour trends,and how we both valued well-manicured hands and nails. I was *thisclose* to shouting "Look! Starry Starry Night!" to see if she was a diehard,but I chickened out :P
I don't know about the rest of you,but the hands are one of the first things I notice about a person.
If a person has awesome make up but their hands are torn up,I always wonder why they couldn't take the time to-at the very least-buff their natural nails to make them look pretty.
Perhaps it's because hands are such a priority for me.My job isn't conducive for maintaining beautiful nails,(i.e. if my nailpolish lasts the entire day,I count myself blessed),but I manage to do it.
Then again,not everyone is a nail polish fanatic with oodles of spare time either.
To each his own :)

Zoya's formula was great as usual.It didn't give me any problems at all.The only thing I'd say about this colour is that there's still VNL at 2 coats.This isn't a problem for me,just an observation.
Zoya products can be purchased on their website for $7. (international readers can purchase them on ebay)
So what do you think about Hayden? Is she a hit or a miss?
Ginger-who is a fan of pink in any shade or finish.Except frost.Yuck.
