Sigh. Where to begin? Yasmeen is a cool-toned purple with very warm, pink-red-brown shimmer throughout. If you look up from below your nail, you'll be able to see that the actual polish base is cool (which I find neat).
Its formula is nearly perfect. It practically applies itself. I have somewhat unsteady hands and I still didn't require much cleanup afterward. It's also a one-coater if you're really careful. I use two out of habit but if you're really good at polishing your nails it easily becomes a one-coat wonder. The only problem I had, which in my opinion isn't enough to deduct a point, is that the polish gets very slightly stringy the longer you take to polish. I didn't find that it negatively affected the consistency of the polish but I felt it was worth mentioning. It also dries extremely quickly and extremely glossy - three or so minutes, it's dry to the touch. I slap on a topcoat anyway because I dislike not wearing one but you could easily not wear one and it's still very high-shine.
This color is absolutely gorgeous, has a ton of depth and is very obviously purple in every lighting, as opposed to some purples that look black in low light. The shimmer makes it extremely dimensional and it's juuuust this side of being a duochrome, if that makes any sense. It is seriously a Holy Grail polish and I will absolutely buy another if my bottle happens to run out. It's perfection.

Yasmeen is the most beautiful, perfect purple for me. The pictures here do it no justice! It is a true, warm leaning purple with a very subtle reddish sheen in it. I have to disagree with a previous viewer who said it looked "wacky" for daytime, I'm not understanding that comment at all. My bottle also was not "goopy" as someone else described. Mine had the usual quality that I have come to expect from Zoya. If you like purple polish, get this one!

This is an absolutely gorgeous warm, jewel-toned purple. It applies beautifully and is fully opaque in 2 coats. I couldn't stop staring at my nails for the week I wore this. I don't know if it was the formula or the fact that I layered Orly Bonder between each layer of color but I didn't get chipping until day 5. If I ever use up the bottle, will definitely re-buy!

Oh, what a pretty, sophisticated color. I like it mostly for evenings out. In the daytime it's a little wacky/casual. I would say, for a purple it's more warm than cool, and it really makes an impact. It's a wonderful toenail color.

This is like a chameleon. In certain lights (from the pics) you can see it's a dark jeweltone purple, but in the store it appeared burgundy with a golden sheen throughout. Zoya polishes are almost always opaque, and if you live in a humid climate then all nail polish will take longer to dry. I use two coats of Zoya with Essie Good To Go, and my manicures last 5-6 days.

AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL COLOR. It's such a dynamic purple. The microshimmer really makes it.
Other than that, it's quite awful. It's very goopy, thus making it so hard to apply. The polish never seems to dry, either. I ran my hands under water about an hour later and it started gooping off my nails.
Ugh, total crap. I always shake and take great care of my polishes, too. Because of this, I know it's allllll zoya.
Would never recommend this.

Everyone raves about Yasmeen, and while it's a pretty color - deep rich purple with reddish-gold shimmer - I was mildly disappointed because Zoya's website describes it as a "cool" purple, but the warm-toned shimmer warms it up so much it was almost burgundy most of the time that I looked at it. It's a nice color, but not really what I wanted. Oh, well. I'm sure I'll still wear it occasionally.

This was my first Zoya. I love it so much, never seen another purple like this one! It's a deep purple with very fine gold and reddish pink shimmers. Stunning and sexy! The brush was a bit too thin for my taste but it still applied well with no streakiness. Only needed 2 coats + SV and it's been lasting for days so far with only minor tipwear. The finish by itself was kind of dull so topcoat is a must for a glossy finish. Looks great on short nails and on toes, as well. I wasn't too impressed by swatches online but I'm glad I ordered it now. Quickly becoming my favorite purple...

Amazing purple with shimmers of warm red, pink and flashes of gold! Brush isn't the best though.
Colour: Love it! This is a deep purple base colour with warm red/gold duochrome and deep pink shimmer as well! Lovely glassy depth to the shimmer without harsh glitter. In my pics at the top the first is with flash which seems to show the base purple best, but the no flash pic that follows shows the red tones and gold duochrome - almost looks like two different colours depending on the light! Metallic finish. I also like the fact that it isn't so dark as to look black, even indoors. I never wear black on my fingertips. Warning for those of you like me with very cool skin tone - although the base pigment is a deep purple, the red/gold shimmer makes this overall quite a WARM colour. I am therefore still looking for my HG cool blue-toned violet/purple polish.
Formulation: Nice finish. Easy to apply, not too thick. Opaque bottle colour in two coats. Looks even better on than in the bottle! Like all metallic/foil finish polishes it tends to show the brush strokes a bit, but not as bad as some.
Packaging: I find the brush hard to use, not sure why. The shape seems a bit odd - clumpy and rounded at the end which makes application very tricky, but not sure if this is just mine though. I prefer OPI brushes. Buying this again? Oh YES!!

At first, I wasn't impressed by it; I mean, what's so special about a dark purple? Plus, I'm not a big fan of colors that almost look black. But the pinkish shimmer in this is so GORGEOUS, it's what makes this color pretty :)
I'm definitely a fan of this color, and would recommend it to anyone. =D

I went to my local spa and used this nail polish for my manicure. The polish is a very deep purple so it looks almost black but in the light you can see the true color. My spa only carries Zoya nail polish and I love the consistency and the lasting power of this nail polish. It does not chip and it did not take long to dry at all. I usually use this nail polish for my pedicures and I was shocked that it lasted a whole month!!!! The polish is on the expensive side but well worth the price.

This polish is just *smoking* hot! I can't imagine ever living without this, as I use it at least 6-8 times a year. It's a deep shimmery duochrome wine/purple that stops just short of black on the vamp scale. This polish just makes me smile when i'm wearing it. It's a killer toe color, and with a couple rhinestones, it just looks rich and vampy. Probably my most favorite pedi color of all time!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Wow!! I am really impresed by this polish! Not only is the color totally awesome but the formula is great!! One coat is sufficient and when you let it dry the pigment spreads out evenly and seems to dry pretty quick. Not amazingly fast but faster than other nail polishes I have tried. It's pricey but if one coat gets the job done I'll definately be trying more from this brand ;)

what a lovely dark purple. i got yasmeen as a gift for christmas and i immediately had to put it on. zoya's brush is a bit hard to work with at first as it is TINY but their formula is good enough to make up for it. i love yasmeen, it's one of my favorite purples. i would definitely repurchase in a heartbeat. here's a pic of yasmeen with one coat of quick-dry topcoat.

When you ask the nail board for Zoya rec's, Yasmeen is always mentioned multiple times---and for very good reason! What a fantastic shade---a deep jewel-toned eggplant with a complex shimmer of pink/magenta. It's a fun color without being garish. I'm pale and neutral/cool, and this one works well with my skintone. Zoya's polishes apply extremely well for me, especially considering they're "big 3 free".

Yasmeen is one of Zoya's most raved-about polishes, and I can really see why! The purple/pink shimmer is heavenly, looks like a treasure chest full of goodies in the sunshine! Three coats is pictured, but two would have sufficed. It is just gorgeous! This is my absolute favorite when it comes to purples, by far!

Yasmeen was my very first dark purple polish and it got me going on a dark purple crazy! This is a very beautiful shimmery, deep, warm purple. Under some lighting it looks almost black but under sunlight the color is absolutely gorgeous.
The polish bubbled quite a bit in some places even after applying thin coats; it's probably because Zoya polishes are Big 3 Free. Yasmeen applied kind of funny and the first coat was a bit streaky (the polish application went from full-on color polish to practically nothing near the tips...maybe it's the brush or my base coat??) but after two coats you couldn't see brush strokes or streaks.
I did get a minor chip on the third day, but I repaired it with just a little more polish and it never chipped again. Tip wear was minimal, and I think if I didn't take off the polish after 5 days, my manicure would've lasted for over a week.
Overall, great polish. I wish it applied as smoothly as OPI polishes do for me though, but I will definitely repurchase.

I have yet to find a purple that comes close to the beauty of Yasmeen. I'm not even going to try and describe the color because several others have reviewed it already. Just know that it's a gorgeous shade and very unique! I got good coverage with 2 coats, which is great since Zoyas usually take 3. I will totally repurchase this when I run out!

GORGEOUS shade of purple! This shade is really named "yasmine" if you havent been able to find it through search. As the reviewer mentioned below me, its a deep rich eggplant, with lighter pinky/purple shimmers in it. It looks gorgeous in the bottle, and even better on tips and toes! Very eye catching, and sexy. I have noticed my shimmer seems to run together over time in this bottle, but nothing shaking cant fix. If you like purple, then this is a must have shade for you. In my top 10 favorite polish colors ever. I love the formula of Zoya, its very high end, and I prefer it to OPI, etc. Im a nail tech, and while I dont bring my zoya's to work, everyone loves this shade when I wear it. A must have from the Zoya collection!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love this nailpolish! It looks fantastic after 2 coats (I'm not a single coat kind of gal anyway), a deep purple with pinkish/magenta shimmer. The color is a pretty good balance between warm and cool and should be flattering on most people. Also, the Zoya formula is Big 3 Free, meaning it lacks three carcinogens commonly found in polishes.
