Twinsie Tuesday - Polish The Color of Our Rooms! (Zoya Charisma)

Can you believe it's another Twinsie Tuesday already? Geeeesh! The weeks fly by. The theme for this week was a polish that's the same color as our room. Now that's an easy one. For a while I was obsessed with all things magenta. Believe it or not, my walls are magenta as well as a ton of other things within my room. I figured while I'm not married with no children I might as well do what I want (I pretty much always use this excuse, I'm thinking I may never have kids or get married lol).  I had a bunch of magenta/fuchsia nail polishes to pick from but I wanted to go with an untried.

The Zoya website described Charisma as an 'ultra bright neon fluorescent magenta/red-toned purple cream.' With all polishes this color, it did dry matte and needed a coat of Out the Door to gain any shine. 

Before I go any further I just want to apologize for these cruddy photos. Two cameras and two cell phone cameras later, I had the worst time trying to get this polish to photograph accurately. Also, since Seche Vite shrinks Zoya like crazy I've been using Out the Door top coat which I'm not liking much at all. I find Out the Door bubbles and I just find it very thin to begin with. It seems to photograph awful in all the photos I've used it for a well.

Ugh, without further ado......

Not color accurate

This is as close as I got, but my skintone is way off and my walls in the background look brown. What the hell Charisma?
Don't forget to check out the other Twinsies! I'm interested to see what everyone's room color is....
