Zoya Channing

Zoya Channing is from the new Satins - Fall 2013 collection. It's a rusty red metallic foil with fantastic coverage. You could probably get away with one coat if you're careful! I used two coats here & a topcoat. Great fall polish!
 
 
I'm a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile! I LOVE this bizarre graphic novel!
Thanks for reading!

Zoya Ziv


Zoya Ziv is from their Winter 2012/13 Ornate Collection.They nailed the description for this one, calling it a yellow-toned metallic gold foil with silver highlights and warm gold flake glitter accents. It's a fantastic & unique polish that covers nicely in two easily applied coats. I think this one is a must have for any gold polish lover!

Zoya Irresistible Collection Nail Art With Rikki, Bobbi, & Tinsley

This manicure started with a base of Zoya Rikki. I then added a triangle of Tinsley followed by a smaller triangle of Bobbi. It didn't look quite finished so I outlined the triangles with my Sally Hansen Nail Art pen in black.

Zoya Tinsley

Zoya Tinsley is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.
Tinsley is in the same family as the stunning Zoya Faye & Zoya Daul. They are all very different from each other though. (My next post will be a side by side comparison of these three lovelies.) I used three coats here & no top coat. As with most foils application the dry time is quick but you do need to wait a bit between coats to avoid dragging.

Art Deco Accent Nail With Zoya Bobbi & Kerry

I occasionally help out a fellow Tulsan with his excellent effort to bring authors to town for fabulous, free events. It's called Book Smart Tulsa & I sometimes volunteer my time to show authors around my hometown. I recently had the pleasure of spending the day with the lovely Therese Anne Fowler, author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Her book event took place in the gorgeous art deco lobby of the Atlas Life Building. Period appropriate clothing was encouraged for the event & while I didn't have a dress, I was able to do a super quick art deco inspired accent nail.
I used Zoya Bobbi for the base then used striping tape & Zoya Kerry to make my quick design. Not my best effort, but not bad considering the very small amount of time I had that day.

Zoya Bobbi

Zoya Bobbi is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.

Zoya Bobbi is a one coat wonder! Not the most unique polish color but a great classic shade that can get you out the door in a hurry. Only one easily applied coat & no top coat needed since it's a foil. That makes Bobbi a winner in my world!

Lemon Lime Ruffian Nails With Zoya Kerry & Zoya Rikki

I don't do swatch posts as you may have noticed if you follow my blog. I tried a few times way back in the beginning but I just don't enjoy it. That means that every post you see is a full manicure that I've worn for at least a day. I usually try out a new polish & then the next day (or so depending on life) I add some nail art. I couldn't think of anything to do the gorgeous Zoya Kerry which is one of my new favorite polishes. My boyfriend, Will (he has his own tag for blog posts) often helps me come up with ideas. This ruffian color combination is his idea & I like it quite a bit! Zoya Rikki is the green polish.

Zoya Rikki


Zoya Rikki is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.
 
Zoya Rikki is a medium green metallic foil with tons of bronze particles & other sparkles. It covers nicely in two coats; just be sure to wait a minute or two in between application to avoid dragging. Rikki is my least favorite from this lovely collection but it's still a keeper! Shown here with no top coat since I find foils don't seem to need them.

Zoya Hazel & Amy - Game Of Thrones Song Of Ice & Fire Nails

 
We've been watching season 3 of Game of Thrones lately & I decided that Zoya Amy would be the perfect base for some Song of Ice & Fire nails. I just added a few random strokes of Zoya Hazel to the tips & done! I actually love this one even though it is so simple.

Zoya Amy

Zoya Amy is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.



Zoya Amy is a an amazing fiery orange metallic foil that covers in two coats. The formula is almost velvety & goes on very nicely. Amy is extremely eye catching; it almost seems to glow! Shown here with no top coat since I find foils don't seem to need them. It also dries quickly & is easily removed. Great polish!

Iron Man Nails!

I love comic books, graphic novels, & all things superhero. My dad, Ashley, & I all went to see Iron Man 3 this afternoon at the IMAX theater. It was lots of fun & Ashley suggested that I do my some Iron Man nails. I think they turned out pretty good!

I used two polishes from Zoya's Irresistible collection of super light reflecting foils which are perfect for superhero nails! I used Zoya Hazel for his eyes & the arc reactor & Zoya Kerry for his face. Sadly I passed Zoya Kym onto a friend years ago back when I didn't like red polish; it would have been perfect. I used Sally Hansen nail art pens in red & black for the rest. I can't get over how amazing Zoya Kerry is, look at that glow! (This is my First ever GIF! I used GIFninja, recommended to me by Lifehacker.)
