Zoya Myrta is like the bright, citrus smell that permeates a room when someone peels a tangerine. No, it doesn’t smell like the fruit, but it makes me think of that vibrancy and energy.
(This was actually the very first colour I wore when I received the Zoya Beach & Surf Summer 2012 Collection!)
I don’t often feature orange nail polish on here because, well, I don’t have too many. But I’ve been straying out of my comfort zone more and more.
Zoya Myrta is a really fun colour that I think is great for the summer because it’s warm and sunny. But I can also see how this would be a great pick in October for Hallowe’en.

Zoya Myrta Review
Myrta by Zoya is a zesty fireball of citrus! It stands out on your nails, but it isn’t your standard red. I think orange is a softer-yet-funkier twist.
This orange leans red and has lots of light gold and silver shimmer throughout that brightens up the overall look and really catches the light.
This polish has a shimmer finish, which verges on the point of looking nearly like a foil finish. There’s so much depth, and it really is such a shame that when I wore this manicure, I didn’t have my camera handy when the sun came out. It’s brilliant in the sun – twinkles and comes to life!
Application & Formula
Myrta by Zoya was pretty pigmented, so I only needed 2 coats to achieve full opacity. The formula was also easy to control.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
This is a fun orange polish that I enjoyed wearing. I can picture myself wearing it again for Hallowe’en and doing Jack O’Lantern nail art with it.
Do you wear orange nail polish? Have you ever met a female named Myrta?
