Zoya's Ornate collection was a huge hit this past winter. I completely understand why because many of them have holographic glitter! I have to be honest with you all though. When I saw swatches of these I wasn't really wowed. I felt I HAD to be missing something, so I thought I'd change my mind when I saw them in person. Nope, I saw them at Ulta when they first came out and I still didn't get it? I felt really guilty because I really wanted to like them, and figured I still must be missing something. I decided to pick some of them up during Zoya's 3 Free promo. The one I'm showing you today is Aurora. Did trying it myself change my mind?
Aurora is a medium red-toned purple based packed with holographic glitter.
I feel like I have to apologize to you all for this...but I don't like it. I know for some you this is one of your all time favorites. I just don't get it. I'm crazy..I'm sure! I think what I don't like about this is the base color. I think I'd like this better if it were a different color. I find this shade makes my fingers look too red. I also think it is too much glitter. I know....blasphemy...again. It just looks speckled to me, it's not the right balance for my taste. Seriously, I feel so guilty writing this! This just isn't my cup of tea, but in this case don't take my word for it! I'm sure many of you love this or will love this.
Just for my own sanity, did anyone else not care for this color too?
Yes, you all are free to question my sanity in the comments! :P
