Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection

Press Sample Today I have the Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection to share with you! The Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection consists of 3 cremes and 3 shimmery shades(Zoya describes them as dewy micro sparkles). There are also 3 lipsticks for Spring (only 1 is a new shade though) and I’ll have that up in a separate post for the Zoya lipsticks! Let’s jump right in. Millie Millie is probably my favorite of the shimmers, and possible of the full collection. Millie is a fuchsia violet jelly like base packed with blue and violet shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Amira Amira is a soft dusty blue crelly base packed with gold and aqua shimmers, as well as gold microflakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Some of the shimmers in Amira were a little larger and…

Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 Collection

Press Sample of Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 Collection I have several Winter/Holiday mainstream polish collections to share with you in the coming days, and to start off I have the Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 Collection. This is a 6 piece collection that has 4 PixieDust formulas and 2 lovely shimmery shades. I do have each PixieDust to share with you that has top coat and without, so you can see it both ways, so there are extra photos for this post. Let’s take a look Elphie Elphie is a deep emerald green textured shade with green microglitters added in. I used 2 coats and no top coat for these photos. A few photos down, you’ll see this shade with top coat as well, then a side by side split image. Lorna Lorna is a deep berry textured polish with dark pink microglitters mixed in. I used 2 coats and no top…

Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge One Coat Creams Collection

Press Sample Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge One Coat Creams Collection Yesterday I showed you the Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Metallic Holos Collection, and tonight I have the Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge One Coat Creams Collection! Before we really dig into this, I have to say that I was slightly disappointed in this collection. While I love some of the colors – I didn’t find any of them to truly be one coat creams. It also feels like they sacrificed a good consistency for the sake of trying to achieve one coat creams. Of the 6 shades, I only was really happy with how 2 performed and that’s disappointing since I usually find the majority of Zoya’s polishes to have amazing application. I would prefer their normal formula, requiring 2 coats to thicker 1 coat formulas. However, if you like a thicker consistency, then maybe these are more for you. Let’s…

Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Metallic Holos Collection

Press Sample of Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Metallic Holos Collection Zoya has a new collection out for Fall 2016, and it’s split into two sets. The first set I’m about to show you is the Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Metallic Holos Collection, and the second is the Urban Grunge One Coat Creams, which I will be showing you a bit later today! You have no idea how insanely excited I was to see Zoya made more holo fleck shades to join Dream, Storm and Aurora. It’s been awhile since Zoya has done them, and they came back with a bang. Half of this collection contains holographic flecks and half are shimmery metallics. Let’s take a look at the Zoya Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Metallic Holos Collection Zoya Alicia Zoya Alicia is my favorite of the collection. This is a sheer silvery base with fine gold shimmer and packed with silver…

Zoya Summer 2016 Neon Ultra Brites Collection

Purchased by Me A couple weeks ago Zoya had a special on their newest collection, and I jumped on it. For $40 I received the Zoya Summer 2016 Neon Ultra Brites Collection, Zoya Purity (white creme) and Zoya Naked Manicure Glossy Seal. Not too bad of a deal. While I did receive Zoya Purity with this collection, I swatched them without. You can use them to bump up the color a bit, but I like to swatch shades as is as much as possible. I had some trouble photographing some, as they behaved like neons for my camera and that’s not really my strong point. I will point out any discrepancies in my photos below each description. Let’s take a look. Cana Cana is a bright neon fuchsia creme. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. This shade is more fuchsia pink in person. My…
