Zoya Isa

Zoya Isa is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun. It's smellier than most Zoya polishes, almost skunky, but not too bad. Application is ok and only required 2 coats, but you do have to be careful not to go over an area multiple times or you'll have dragging issues. All that being said, Isa is a very pretty and well balanced purple polish - not too red or too blue - and I got lots of compliments on it. Overall it's just not my style but my boyfriend loves colors like this for his toes so he has claimed this one!

Zoya Genesis

Zoya Genesis is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun. It's very streaky at 2 coats and better at 3, as pictured, but I probably could have used a fourth. Genesis is pretty but not my favorite white. I'm still keeping it though since I don't have many whites in my collection.

Zoya Selene

Zoya Selene is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun. I barely needed a second coat and it applies easily. Selene is a very pretty teal and it practically glows in low light but it's not quite my style. My boyfriend Will loves polishes like this for his toes though!

Zoya Aphrodite And Cecilia

Weird but interesting mix of Zoya Aphrodite and Cecilia. I was originally planning on doing bold diagonal stripes of Cecilia but I messed them up. I decided to just play with the colors on my nails and see if I could salvage them. Not my favorite but I'd wear them in public.

Zoya Oceane

Zoya Oceane is from their summer 2015 collection, Paradise Sun, shown here at two coats. You have to be careful of dragging and brushstrokes with this one. Oceane is very pretty and practically glows in low light but it's not quite my style. My boyfriend Will loves polishes like this for his toes though!

ORLY Star Trooper

ORLY Star Trooper is from their space inspired Galaxy FX set.
ORLY Star Trooper is shown here at 2 easily applied coats using my absolute favorite brush handle/cap - I LOVE the rubber grip. Star Trooper is a sheer charcoal base absolutely packed with glitter - very small gold, small matte white circles, and medium silver hexes. It's actually a bit too packed since I think it would look more spacey if the circles and hexes were much sparser. Still an interesting polish and a great idea for a collection!

Failed Blobbicure With Zoya

I can't figure out who started this technique but it was fun to try even though it didn't quite work for me this time. I always try out nail art ideas on a practice wheel first and the technique seemed to be working but it didn't go as well on my actual nails. I was probably overly ambitious trying to use 4 colors on my attempt!

I started with Zoya Toni on one nail and then added drops of Zoya Kimber, India, and Belinda quickly to form a random pattern. I don't think I worked quite quickly enough though.
