Green and purple are my two favorite colors to wear on my nails. Sometimes, I can’t choose between the two.
This is where duochrome and multichrome polishes come in. They don’t force you to pick sides – you get to enjoy the best of both worlds as the colors dance on your nails with a slight shift of the lighting. Absolute love!
Today I bring you Zoya Adina, which is a beautiful multichrome featuring purple, green, and a hint of pink.

Zoya Adina Review
As you can see in the above photos, the beauty of Adina by Zoya is that it changes from purple to green to pink depending on how the light changes.
The most predominant colors are purple and green, but you can see a bit of pink sometimes.
This is a true multichrome – you don’t have to squint really hard to see the colors shift. They do so in a fiery little dance that’s as much fun to watch as leprechauns dancing the Macarena around a pot of gold.
This is a very frosty shade. The photos emphasize the brushstrokes, and while they are visible to the naked eye, they’re not nearly as obvious as the camera makes it appear.
Adina by Zoya went on smoothly, evenly, and opaquely in just a single coat. I added an extra coat because I find that Zoya polish always leans on the thin side.
A few minutes after swiping on the second coat, the polish started to bubble a bit. It’s probably because I was painting my nails on a super humid day.
Whenever I wear Zoya polish without a Zoya base coat and Zoya top coat, it always chips the very next day! This is really saying something because with every other brand of polish I’ve tried, I can easily get polish to be chip-free for a minimum of a week.
So what I did was I tried the Zoya Get Even Ridge-Filling Basecoat and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Zoya is Big-3-Free. Seche Vite is not. I was testing to see whether or not using the Zoya base coat under a Zoya polish was enough to make the polish last longer for me. It did…but not significantly. Instead of usually chipping in 24 hours, I wore it for 2 days and then got a chip.
In a future post, I’ll try using both a Zoya base coat and Zoya top coat with a Zoya polish and report the manicure mileage.
All Zoya nail polishes don’t contain any Formaldehyde, DBP, or Toluene. Additionally, they also don’t have Camphor, which some people are allergic to.
Zoya polishes aren’t tested on animals, and they’re vegan-friendly.
Final Verdict: 9/10
Had this polish not chipped so quickly, I would’ve given it a perfect score because the unique oil-slick multichrome is so beautiful to gawk at!
What are some of your favorite multichrome or duochrome polishes? How long do Zoya nail polishes last on you before they chip? Do you find that exclusively using Zoya base and top coats help the wear time of Zoya polishes?
