Friday with Zoya Frida!

Hello my dear readers!

Today's post features the last polish from the Zoya fall collection. And I saved the best for last! My favorite of all the fall collection is a beautiful teal blue gloss called Frida!


What Does My Name Mean? Frida, The Meaning of Names (1958-9-28)

What does the name “Frida” mean? A name is much more than just a name!
F is for feeling, your sympathetic way.
R is for rely, everyone's trustworthy friend.
I is for impressive, your list of qualities.
D is for dream, your beacon ahead.
A is for altruism, the unselfish you.
The name “Frida” is of German origin and it means “Peace”. It’s a name commonly given to girls. There are 3 other names that are similar to this one.
According to the 2006 U.S. Social Security Administration data, the name “Frida” is not a popular baby girl’s name in Texas. Imagine that, only 95 babies in Texas have the same name as you in 2006. Across the entire United States a total of only 320 babies also bear the same first name during the same year. From 1880 to 2011, the highest recorded use of the name “Frida” was in 2003 with a total of 407 babies.
Since 1880, your name was recorded 4,551 times in the American baby names history. Do you want to know how popular is the name Frida?’

Your name in reverse order is “Adirf”. A random rearrangement of the letters in your name (anagram) will give ‘Adifr’. (How do you pronounce that?)


Your past life Frida:
I do not know how you feel about it, but you were a female in your last earthly incarnation. You were born somewhere around the territory of Southern Japan approximately on 825. Your profession was trainer, holder of the fine animals, birds, insects.
Your brief psychological profile in that past life:
You are a person with huge energy, good in planning and supervising. If you were just garbage-man, you were chief garbage-man.
Lessons that your last past life brought to present:
You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all life difficulties with joyful heart. You should help others, bringing them spirit of joy.
Now do you remember?

Interesting stuff,names! Gotta love it!

Now on to the swatches!

And Frida outdoors in bright sunlight.

Frida applied a whole lot easier than the other two glosses.I am not sure,except it might be because I like her so much?

 I applied two coats to the whole nail,and then noticed my tips were the ones not getting any coverage,so I dabbed the third coat onto my tips as if I were doing a funky french. After that though,the effect was not that noticeable on camera,so I went on to apply a 4th coat on to the entire nail. I must have taken at least 30 photos of this polish today,and these two were the only ones I was satisfied enough  to show you.

Frida,although sheer,is a nicely pigmented dark warm-toned teal blue gloss.As with the other glosses,Frida took 4 coats for opacity. It is 4 coats of gorgeous teal blue jelly! I love it!
