I recently took advantage of the Zoya Polish Exchange program where you could turn in your old, icky polishes and get brand new Zoya polishes for half price!! This is how I first discovered the line last year and I am forever hooked!!
So I picked 10 polishes – some from their most recent lines and a few classics.
Here’s what i picked out:
Richelle – This came out last summer ’09 I think and its a molten bronzey gold, with gold microshimmer. A classic summer colour. On me it looks like shimmery neutral, not too dark and not glittery. Smooth formula. I used 2 coats, but 3 is needed for total coverage and no visible nail line. This is a safe colour for brown (tan, black, latin, desi, arabic) girls.
Trixie– I heard a lot about his colour, as it’s very popular!! It’s a bold, futuristic, shiny foiled white silver. The shimmer is fine and it has a minx-like foil finish. I love this!!! It’s kinda like summer whites with an edge!! This would look a-mazing on dark skin as the contrast would make the colour pop!! I expect to see a colour like this in Vogue or SHE Caribbean magazine. So glad I got this one!
Calypso – a midtone, peachy, coraly colour with microshimmer. Very pretty, good on medium to dark skintones. Also good for those afraid of bright colours. This one is pigmented but a soft colour. As a Trinbagonian, I could not resist this colour, it will work well on a trip to Maracas!
