After wearing the neon skittle manicure, a contrast was needed. Zoya Yasmeen fit the bill with a seductive rich purple full of intoxicating shimmer.
I’ve had this beauty in my stash for years, and it’s fine time that I showed it off. This is a pretty hue that’s a staple for any purple polish lover!
Zoya Yasmeen is vampy, which may make you think more of the fall and winter. But I tend to wear whatever colour I want regardless of the season, and this certainly filled the void for a dark hue that I was craving so badly.

Zoya Yasmeen Review
Yasmeen by Zoya is mainly a deep plum purple that looks dark, yet never black (even in dim light). It’s very luxurious and dramatic. This is a shade that walks the tightrope between edgy and sophisticated in the carnival of colour. I really dig it!
The shimmer is what gives Yasmeen an air of mystery and seduction. Its magenta-gold shimmer twinkles like pixie dust and even reminds me a touch of Clarins 230 (Unicorn Pee). It’s in no way a dupe (it’s not a multichrome), but the tiny shimmer has that magical appearance.
Mainly when you see the shimmer, you see the magenta (or reddish purple). But in some artificial lighting, you can pick up the golden shimmer.
Application & Formula
The formula was smooth and easy to apply. Wow, and talk about a polish that’s highly pigmented! With just a single coat, most of my nail was covered, but I used two to even everything out.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Yasmeen by Zoya is one of my favourite Zoya polishes in my stash. It applies effortlessly and has that special shimmer to keep it from looking flat. If you’re into eggplant and plum polishes, I think you’ll love this one.
Do you still wear vampy shades even in the spring and summer? What Zoya polish do you reach for the most?
