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 Ginni

Zoya Ginni is from their Magical Pixie Dust Summer 2014
Zoya Bar is part of Zoya's second set of Magical Pixie Dusts, textured sparkle polishes with holographic cellophane glitter like Monet. While I still love the plain Pixie Dusts more, these magical versions are also pretty special. Ginni applied very easily in two coats, dries quickly and looks fantastic. Super fancy nails fast!
I really loved this book! Check out what I'm reading on Goodreads..

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!

Zoya Binx


Zoya Binx is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.
Zoya describes Binx as "a spicy orchid purple dappled with gold metallic & holo sparkles" but I would definitely describe this one as a well balanced, medium toned pink jelly. I love the way Zoya does gold & silver micro shimmer & it looks particularly stunning in a jelly formula. As for the holographic sparkles, they are the same lovely pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just in a smaller size.  Taken together it's a gorgeous combination that makes for a very unique polish. Binx would look great with just about any skin tone too!
I used 2 coats here & tried a third on on nail to see if I could get closer to the color seen in promo pics. I couldn't tell a difference so I just left it at two coats. Still a beautiful polish with an easy to work with formula.

Revlon Cherry Fizz

My friend Casey kindly gave me one of her cherished bottles of Revlon Cherry Fizz recently & I love it! Cherry Fizz is a dark hot pink jelly with sparse hot pink shimmer that's even prettier in person. It's got a great formula shown here at 5 coats. Perfect for spring & summer, thanks Casey!

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 bothers 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.

Thanks for reading!

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.

Thanks for reading!

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!
