Throwback Thursday: Zoya Angelina

I have a different color for me throwback to show you today. I am not really brown person at all. Brown nail polish or brown clothing wouldn't be my first color of choice. A few years back though I was craving a brown nail polish. I don't know why, but I felt like I needed one in my collection. My first pick was Zoya's Angelina, and it's color I'm still happy with over the years.

Angelina is a rich coffee brown creme.

Collection: Zoya Drama Collection Winter 2006

Color: What I like about this brown is the richness and depth of the color. This is a brown that nearly verges on black. While brown isn't my go-to color ever, I think this shade of brown is very universal and flattering. It's very shiny and elegant.

Formula: Angelina has a nice formula. I used 3 coats above. I'd prefer it didn't need the extra coat and was just a little more opaque on application.

Price: This color has since been discontinued by Zoya, however, it is available on Amazon for $9.

Overall: What draws me to this color is it reads as a very classic neutral color without being ordinary. Angelina being a brown shade makes this color special and unique in comparison to a classic black or red. I love the depth of this color, and it will always remain in my collection.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!


  1. This is a gorgeous brown, very rich and chocolatey. A great brown to have in your collection :)

  2. What a nice rich dark brown creme!

  3. I totally agree about brown-- it's a color I pretty much only reserve for boots, but this is such a nice, deep, rich shade of brown. It's brown without being too brown, you know? Haha. I do agree that is a universally flattering color!

  4. I'm glad you like it too.

  5. Glad you like it!
