You know how Ludacris yells, “LUDA!”? Well, when I first laid eyes on Zoya Yuna, for some reason, I read it as “YUNA!” like Luda! 😉 No, I can’t just read it normally.
This polish is all kinds of amazing. I can’t think of any nail polish I already own in my ever-growing stash that’s exactly like this, so it’s pretty unique. That’s a hard feat, considering that there are soooo many gorgeous nail polishes on the market. Kudos, Zoya!
This polish is an interesting dusty slate blue with golden-green sparkle. I looked at it for the longest time, and sometimes I thought the sparkles were golden, but contrasting the blue, they sometimes looked a little green.
Regardless, Zoya Yuna is really interesting, and I like how when you first glance at it, it’s unassuming and subtle. But when you take the time to look deeper, that’s when you see the sparkle, and it whispers sweet nothings! 😉

Zoya Yuna Review
Although it’s marketed as a grey, I can clearly see blue undertones, so it’s not necessarily a concrete grey.
This colour is really interesting to me because it’s not very dupeable (at least not when I took a look in my Helmers)!
The slate blue is very sophisticated, and it can easily be worn in even conservative office environments. The sparkle isn’t over-the-top bling, so it’s definitely work-appropriate.
The finish is a creme with some glitter. But the glitter isn’t chunky and textured. My nails felt extremely smooth, and the twinkling of the golden-green glitter was a lovely contrast to the base blue-grey.
I spent so long looking at the glitter. Haha, sometimes it appeared to be more golden, but sometimes I thought it looked a tad green. Gorgeous!
Application & Formula
If you’ve ever worn Zoya nail polishes, you know that in addition to being known for expanding colour territory, their formulas are also amazing!
Yuna by Zoya was no exception. It glided on easily, and it was very pigmented, even with a single coat. I used two out of habit, and I don’t think you’ll need a third to get stellar results!
You’ll also love Zoya nail polishes because they don’t contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, or Camphor! 🙂
Final Verdict: 8/10
The unique shade of Yuna by Zoya really won me over, and it’s getting me ready for autumn! 🙂 If you’re looking for a cool and different nail polish, this one fits the bill nicely.
When you think of fall, what colour springs to mind? What colours do you wear to work? Does your workplace have rules regarding what nail polishes you can wear to the office?
