Zoya’s annual nail polish exchange is upon us, just in time for Earth Day.
This is the time that I usually chose to clean out my nail polish collection and get rid of old, dried out polishes that are way past their prime. Then I get to add some new vegan shades from my wishlist.
For all the details on how to exchange your old bottles and to learn more about the programme, click here! Act fast, as the promotion only runs for 1 week, ending April 28th, 11:59pm EST.
The next generation of Zoya Naturel is almost here! Introducing, Zoya Naturel Satins, a collection of six new, neutral nail polish colors in an ultra-wearable, low-sheen, chic satin finish. A hybrid between matte and glossy polishes, the new Zoya Satin* formula provides opaque coverage and is longer lasting than traditional matte shades. The flawlessly smooth finish hides imperfections and creates a luxurious, satin finish nail look.
Playing on the holiday theme and wishing for beautiful, sparkly things, Zoya has produced a mixed-texture nail lacquer collection.
Wishes really do come true with this magical new nail polish collection for Winter/Holiday 2014! Zoya Wishes** is a densely pigmented assortment featuring both traditional and Magical PixieDust formulas in coordinating color combinations that can be worn alone or combined into stunning combinations, no matter how you wear them, this collection delivers a fanciful way to celebrate the season!
This is the last of the summer offering from Zoya and it’s the Bubbly collection. This was my least favourite of the three….hence the reason why I took so long to write about it. These polishes are glittery with a semi-foil finish. They also have a little transparency to it like jelly-finish polishes. The consistency is quite thick but for most of them you would need to apply at least two coats for full coverage. For these swatches, I used two coats. There are again two pinks, but this time I’m okay with that because they are very different from each other.
I love shimmers and glitter polishes, but I appreciate a really vibrant, pigmented cream. Holding on to every bit of summer that I can, I have been loving these brights from Zoya’s Tickled Collection for summer 2014, especially as pedicure colours!
Tickled collection by Zoya
In general, I used two coats of polish for each shade. These are all very bright. I would even call them fluorescent or neon. I think they would look good on all skins tones, especially those with a deep tan or darker skin. They will really pop! The formula contains no shimmer, and it is a little thick but it’s not difficult to use. I also got good coverage on the nail for most of them. All Zoya polishes are Big 5 Free, and available for purchase at US$9 each.
Kitridge – a bright bubble gum pink. A light neon pink. It also was a little thicker than the others and applied a little streaky. I think one has to apply slightly thinner coats. It looks great against my skin tone but I am not a super fan of it. I think my issue is that there is pretty much a bubble gum pink in the last 3 Zoya summer collections. One may be a little brighter that the other, but pretty much the same colour. It’s nice, but eh…..
