Zoya Rooney

Zoya Rooney is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
 
Rooney is a nicely balanced bright medium toned pink creme that will look great with lots of skin-tones. Shown here at two thin coats that applied nicely. Zoya Rooney is a great addition to my pink collection!

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Rocha

Zoya Rocha is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
 
Zoya calls Rocha a red creme but I say it's a bright orange creme instead. A truly fabulous orange too, very rich & warm. Zoya Rocha is shown here at 2 easily applied coats with a fantastic formula. I'll be using Rocha a lot this summer, especially since it matches some of the shades in my new summer hair!
I love my new undercut for breezy summer ponytails in the Oklahoma heat & humidity.

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Kirtridge

Zoya Kirtridge is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
Tickled & Bubbly
I hated pink polish when I started blogging almost 5 years ago, but now I have a healthy appreciation for a great pink polish like Zoya Kirtridg. Zoya accurately describes Kirtridge as "a classic summer bubblegum pink cream." Shown here at 2 easily applied coats, Zoya Kirtridge is a definite keeper!

Poshinality Tomboy

Poshinality launched earlier this year and I've got one to show you! Poshinality Tomboy is a slate blue creme with a great formula shown here in 2 easily applied coats. I love square bottles since they store so nicely & the brush is pretty standard, which means works great but nothing noteworthy. Poshinality Tomboy is a gorgeous polish that goes with everything! I've got my eye on their spring collection, 5 cremes that look truly lovely together.
I'm a voracious reader! You can follow me on Goodreads!

Zoya Ling


Zoya Ling is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
Tickled & Bubbly

Zoya Ling is "a vibrant royal blue cream that is evenly balanced to flatter most skin tones" according to Zoya & that's a great description. I love blue polishes & Ling is no exception. I'll do a comparison post with Zoya Breezi sometime in the near future, but I'm keeping both! Ling is opaque in two coats. Sorry for the messy bottle! I was watching Game of Thrones instead of looking at the bottle while painting my nails...

Elizabeth Arden Spring Gradient

Gradient manicures are my favorite go to nail art without a doubt. Almost impossible to mess up & so easy to accomplish. Here I started with a base of Elizabeth Arden Ahoy & then used a slightly damp makeup sponge to add Elizabeth Arden Seaview Crimson to the tips. Perfect for spring & it matches my shirt!

Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait

Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait has a great formula for a pale creme polish. Shown here at 3 thin coats that self level quite nicely. I love this shade with my skin tone too. Definitely a keeper!
 
Oklahoma springs are so windy! I couldn't resist this Threadless shirt several years ago. I have no idea why, but I just needed Mr. Choppy.

Sation Strumming My Nails

Sation Strumming My Nails is the palest of grey creme polishes. I love the color but the formula wasn't self-leveling at all as you can see in the pictures. I'll be passing this one along.

Zoya Dot

Zoya Dot is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.

Zoya Dot is still streaky after three coats as shown here. I used the thin coat, medium coat, thin coat method recommended by many for pale creme polishes but still had a few streaks. I should have tried one more thin coat but the color & finish aren't unique enough to be worth the time & effort. Dot is a pretty pink but I have others with much better formulas, like Sation Off The Record Pink. So far, Dillon is the only polish I've tried from this collection that I will be keeping. Hudson & Rebel do look promising though.

Elizabeth Arden Ahoy

Elizabeth Arden Ahoy is one of two new polishes from their 2014 Summer Escape Collection. Ahoy comes in an adorable nautical themed box for all of you packaging fans!  The brush is a tad stubby but I love the wide curved bristles & it works very well.

Ahoy is a a muted coral neon unlike any others in my collection. A gorgeous shade for spring & summer! Shown here at three 3 thin coats, the formula is a bit streaky but applies nicely for this type of color & finish. Definitely a keeper!

Zoya Cole



Zoya Cole is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.
Zoya Cole was originally released as Stella for Peter Som's NYFW SS14 . Cole is shown here at 3 difficult to apply coats. I tried this application method recommended by Zoya for pastel cremes & whites. I used a thin coat, a medium coat, & one final thin coat, but still had troubles. The formula is sticky and doesn't self level. The peach color doesn't suit me either. I'll be passing this one along to a friend. So far I'm 0-for-2 with the Awaken collection. Still looking forward to trying the ones that look like they'll have a similar finish to Edyta though.

Sation Tira Miss-U

Sation Tira Miss-U is so gorgeous! It's very similar to Zoya Rue but Sation's formula is much better, possibly because it's more of a jelly polish than a straight up creme. Shown here in two coats that applied like a dream. I'm in love with this lavender leaning neutral!

Zoya Rue


Zoya Rue is from their first release for 2014, Zoya Naturel.

Zoya Rue is my favorite from this collection, a gorgeous soft pink with hints of lavender. I must say Zoya Rue looks drastically different in photos I've seen across the internet, everywhere from a very pale pink to more purple tinged & darker like I've shown here. Lighting & skintone seem to make this one very much a chameleon. Neutral polishes are always going to be much more dependent on an individual than something like the latest knockout red or spacey blue glitter. I love this one though! Rue has a nice formula that covers in two coats.
