I know what you're thinking, what a strange polish name, not Zoya's usual, this was a custom shade designed by Marzia Kjellberg aka Cutie Pie Marzia for her summer 2016 curated subscription box, I found this shade on ebay and was intrigued, this is a rare polish as Zoya doesnt do custom shades that often, the only other one I know of is a blue made for a company in the US called Progressive Auto Insurance. I wish I had a bottle of this but as far as I can tell it was only offered to employees of the company.

I would describe Cutie Pie as a very pale milky pink. Cutie Pie is super sheer and I did three coats, its a tiny bit runny so thin coats are needed.

Marilyn is a discontinued polish from Zoya and I would describe it as a pale milky pink with a pearl shimmer finish, slightly more colour than Cutie Pie. I used the Z Wide brush for this one to minimise streaks, I did three coats for opacity.

Do please excuse the state of my middle fingers, they both have breaks and dodgy patches that I am trying to use to keep the nails from breaking all the way across. I want to try and grow them out without having to resort to cutting my nails down to nubs. Also excuse the state of my index finger with the smudge, it was all going wrong this morning!


  1. These are really subtle. I like such colours from time to time :-)
