My Zoya haul!

Hey!!

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

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

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

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!
