I have been very into nude/cream/tan/blonde shades lately (altho my boyfriend seems bored with them). It is sort of strange, tho, since I never used to think twice about nudes and stayed very, very far away. My polish tastes have changed a lot since I started polish collecting back in August - and I was especially taken aback when I fell in love with RGB Blonde on Blonde (which I haven't purchased, but have been inspired to buy other similarly pale yellow/beige colors because of). Today I have Cho to show you, as you could guess from this post's title! Zoya describes Cho as "an opaque yellow-toned light soft peachy beige with a hint of ultra fine silver shimmer" (also, they don't use nearly as many commas as I do). Definitely one of a few new pale blonde-y colors to make me very happy - it is so buttery, creamy, and pretty.

I think the 'hidden shimmer' in this polish really bums some people out, but I think it adds a little depth to the color, making it less flat and dull (and mannequin-y). In my experience, polishes with hidden shimmer play really well when adding a shimmery top coats, while the same layering top coat can look either too harsh on creams or too overdone on super shimmery colors. I have a really beautiful, swoon-worthy glitter combo on top of Cho to show you a different day, so you can see what I mean.
Did you get anything good during the Zoya Valentine's Day promo (almost a month ago, now, yikes!!!) ??
