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!
So Memorial Day has come and gone, so that means that summer is here, unofficially!!!!
Y’all know that summer is my absolutely favourite time of year. Hot, humid, bright….that’s all me!!!! I love wearing bright colours, soft fabrics like linen, the beach weather, I’m a true Caribbean girl!!!
Enough about me!
So this Memorial weekend had the best weather that I could remember in a while!!! NYC was just sunny and warm. I hung out with a great friend of mine, Jackie. She is the founder and author of CooklikeJackie.com. She’s a foodie and enjoys the art of cooking, dining and everything involved with making food amazing!!!! You like cooking gadgets? Find some great reviews here.
So Jackie asked me to help her pick some colours to wear to break out of her no-colour phase. I suggested OPI‘s Hot & Spicy from Hong Kong Collection. She’s about NC 35 or so (I’m purely guessing!) and I think that that colour would look great on anyone with bronzey skin!!! Especially paired with summer whites!
