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.

Zoya Lux




Zoya Lux is from their Spring 2014 Magical Pixie Dust Collection.

I'm a huge fan of Zoya's classic Pixie Dust polishes. That's probably an understatement. If I was forced to choose my top 5 favorite collections of all time, all three of the Classic Pixie Dust collections would be in that list. I wasn't sure if I would love these new Magical Pixie dusts quite as much though. I love holographic polishes but I've never been a huge fan of chunky glitters.

Zoya Lux is the first one I've tried from this new collection so far & it will be the first Pixie Dust that I'm not going to keep, but not for the reason I suspected.

I actually love the bling brought to these beauties with the large holo glitter. The formula is a bit dry but still easy to apply. Lux just doesn't look that great with my skin tone. All of the silver sparkle & holo particles end up washing out the pink pigment quite a bit & it just looked desaturated on my hands. I think it would be lovely with extremely pale skin or dark skin as well. Just not for me.
 One other word of caution, these are definitely grittier on your nail than the Classic Pixie Dusts. If texture bother you, don't go for this collection! I'm still eager to try Cosmo & Vega since I love texture & my worry about the holo glitter proved unfounded. Not to mention dusty blues are my favorite color family.

I thought removal might be rather harsh & difficult but that also ended up being a non issue. My regular removal method worked just fine.

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.

Zoya Brigitte



Zoya Brigitte is from their first release for 2014, Zoya Naturel.
Here's what Zoya has to say about this new collection.
The natural nail only better... The Zoya Nail Polish Naturel collection masters delicate tone on tone color with six new, full-coverage (opaque) neutral nudes with a pink undertone, that can be worn beautifully alone or stunningly together to create modern tonal accents.
The Look: It’s not about matching - it’s about coordinating colors with slight tonal differences to create interest.

I like the idea of this collection & Brigitte is certainly pretty. Applies easily in two coats. I'd call this one an office appropriate mauve. Nothing earth shattering but a good start to a collection that has lots of promise for folks who want nice polishes for a conservative work environment.
Thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen Color Quick Pen - Magenta

Sally Hansen Color Quick Pen in Magenta is very sheer but also very easy to apply. Shown here at three coats, it dries incredibly fast. I don't love this color but I am interested in trying out more of these pens; I've seen chrome colors around that look great. These would be a fantastic choice for taking on vacation!

Rimmel Pink Bliss

Rimmel Pink Bliss is a very pretty polish shown here at three coats. I really could have used a fourth. While I love Rimmel's square bottle & pale pink jelly polishes like this, I have versions with better formulas.

Sation Queenie In A Bottle

You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation Queenie In A Bottle is from their limited edition collection, Candylandia. I love their wide brushes!


Sation Queenie In A Bottle is a bright orchid pink jelly that covers in two easily applied coats. I hated pink polishes when I frst started this blog back in 2009, but now I'm a fan & this one is fantastic!

Zoya Arabella vs Zoya Miranda Comparison

Zoya Arabella on the left & Zoya Miranda on the right. Very similar but Arabella is a much deeper color which makes sense since it's from the fall collection. Arabella also leans more purple while Miranda is more pure rose. I'm keeping them both!

Zoya Yana

Zoya Yana is from their Summer 2013 Stunning Collection.
 
Zoya Yana is shown here at 2 coats but it could have used a third. The formula seemed a bit off, streaky & sticky with dragging problems even with thin coats. I normally love Zoya polishes & I love Rocky, Darcy & Josie from this collection but I think you can skip the pinks & the orange this time because there are options for these colors with better formulas.
I've just discovered the joys of sun hats. Perfect for working in the yard on blistering hot Oklahoma summer days!

Zoya Micky is shown here at 3 coats. It's a bit streaky but I like the color so I'll keep it for now. I love Rocky, Darcy & Josie from this collection but I think you can skip the pinks & the orange because there are options for these colors with better formulas.

Zoya Miranda

Zoya Miranda is a pretty polish from the Summer 2013 Pixie Dust collection.
<p>
 Zoya PixieDust Special Texture Edition Image</p>
Here's what Zoya has to say about this collection.

Infused with even more magic and wonder! Because everyone wants more of it... The color experts at Zoya went back to the lab and created six more beautiful, long-wearing textured, matte and sparkle Zoya PixieDust Colors for Summer 2013! The incredible and best-selling formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.

IMPORTANT PixieDust Application Information - Do not use a base coat or top coat. Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish. Allow product to dry down completely matte in between layers for full textured effect. The PixieDust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery! 
Zoya Miranda is a raspberry textured shimmer polish. Covers nicely in 2 coats but I noticed I needed to wait a bit longer in between them. Miranda seemed to take more time to dry than my other Pixie Dusts & doesn't seem quite as matte as the rest of them either. Not a bad thing at all, it just looks a little more squshy & jelly like than the others. Another winner in the amazing Pixie Dust series!

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 & dry time is quick but you do need to wait a bit between coats to avoid dragging.

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!
