Zoya polish featured in Black Swan

I personally love finding out what kind of nail polish is used in TV shows, movies, and magazine ads. So, I was really pleased to hear that a particular shade of Zoya polish, Bela, made a brief cameo in the movie Black Swan. Bela is a gorgeous pale pink, a perfect shade to complement the strong ballet themes in the movie.

Highlight to read exactly where this Zoya bottle cameo is:
Early on in the film as the lead dancer, Nina (portrayed by Natalie Portman), prepares in her dressing room for a gala where she will be revealed to the masses as the new Swan Queen, a solitary elegant bottle of nail polish briefly takes over the screen. This is where the line between a little girls fantasy and reality blissfully blurs. The bottle shown is Zoya Nail Polish in a delicate shade of pink named Bela.

This weekend has been really stormy so I haven't had a chance to post pictures of my New Year nails. Not that it would really help, since I only had a 15 minute window to do my nails this year because I was so busy doing family stuff and I also had to get a cortisone shot in my right arm on the 30th! So typing is still a little painful, and since I was in such a rush to do my nails I have beautiful air bubbles all over (isolated ones at least, so I can take some comfort that they don't look terrible from afar).

Anyway, I did white nails for the New Year. Normally I'd go for something sparkly but I'm had quite an awful be honest it was really shitty. So I just want to go into 2011 with a blank slate and the hope that things will get better and change for the better.

As for my New Year's resolution, it will be of course to be blog more and to buy less polish. I think things have picked up a bit on the blog front so I hope to continue that trend into 2011 =) As for the buying less polish part...well...we'll see.
