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!
 
Thanks for reading!

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 Leslie

Zoya Leslie is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Leslie is flat out beautiful! I usually change my nails every day but I kept it on for 5 days. This shade looks fantastic on me & I just didn't want to take it off which is very rare for me. The turquoise micro shimmer is simply a gorgeous bonus! Shown here at 2 easily applied coats.

Zoya Daisy

Zoya Daisy is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Daisy looks like lemon drop candy with turquoise micro-shimmer. I love it! Shown here at two coats; it could probably use a third but the formula is great, especially for a yellow polish.

OPI Midnight In Moscow

OPI Midnight In Moscow was originally part of their Fall 2007 Russian collection but has since been added to their Classics line with good reason!

OPI Midnight In Moscow is so fun; it looks like liquid vampires! It's a sheer charcoal jam-packed with brick red micro shimmer. The first coat is streaky but as soon as you start the second coat everything turns rich and glossy and magical. I love OPI's wide brushes too so this one really was a pleasure to apply. I don't usually go for dark, vampy colors but Midnight In Moscow is simply fantastic!
In artificial light so you can see the shimmer.

Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen

Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen is part of their currently available Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel collection.

Blech! Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen is just terrible all around in my opinion. Shown here at 3 coats, the formula is extremely streaky and really needed a fourth coat but I already hated the polish so I stopped. The polish is full of brushstrokes and the color seemed like something that was once white but had turned yellow from sun exposure; not a pretty color or finish in other words. The brush handle is a very stubby ball that I found awkward to use. And then there is the issue of scent. I'm not really into perfume so maybe this just will never be my thing but it smelled like nail polish mixed with a perfumey version of dryer sheets. The smell lingered into the second day of wear and was sometimes unpleasant, especially when I was eating a meal. Blech!

Zoya Rayne

Zoya Rayne is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Rayne is a medium toned icy blue packed with turquoise micro shimmer. Perfect for snowy, icy cold days or sunny spring weather! Rayne is pretty streaky so I definitely needed 3 coats. Unlike anything else in my collection and definitely a keeper!

Revlon Spice It Up

Revlon Spice It Up is from their 2011 Spice It Up collection. I don't usually go for vampy polishes but there's just something about this one that I really love. Revlon Spice It Up is a deep brick red with copper micro shimmer that applies easily in 2 coats. Gorgeous!

Milani Metallic Mango

Milani Metallic brushstrokes is shown here at 2 coats. It's too full of brushstrokes to be a keeper for me; I don't want to mess with brushstrokey polish unless it will look super metallic and chrome like when I'm done. Perfectly fine polish but just nor for me.
