Zoya Arlo

Zoya Arlo is part of Zoya's second set of Magical Pixie Dusts, textured sparkle polishes with holographic cellophane glitter! While I still love the plain Pixie Dusts more, these magical versions are also pretty special. The Pixie Dusts wear like iron and even if you do somehow manage to chip it, you can very easily just dab a bi of polish on & fix it right up, not something I can do with a creme polish!

Arlo is a faded, dusty plum color that I found very flattering. It's got a great formula, shown here using 3 thin coats. Very versatile color in a finish I love! I took a lot of pictures.

Zoya Autumn

Zoya Autumn is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Autumn is the copper polish of my dreams! No other company does micro shimmer as well as Zoya and this copper polish loaded with gold flecks is a real show stopper. The first coat is patchy but every thing looks magically looked perfect on the second coat. Truly gorgeous!

Nail Art Inspired By Chalkboard Nails

I keep a Pinterest board full of nail art I'd love to try someday and I finally got around to trying one of my favorite ideas. Chalkboard Nails is one of my favorite blogs & her adorable Carmen Miranda Ruffle Manicure looked fancy but totally doable. Thanks for the great idea!
I used all 6 colors from Zoya's Tickled Summer 2014 collection for my version and I love how it turned out! Easy enough to do well on both hands too. I started with Zoya Kitridge then added dots in Ling, Rocha, Rooney, Tilda, & Wendy!

Zoya Wendy

Zoya Wendy is my favorite from the Tickled Summer 2014 collection! It's a bright pink with strong coral leanings that I absolutely love! Great formula that covers in just 2 coats and made me happy every time I looked at it. My boyfriend Will also loves it & immediately used it for his toes. It looked darn good on him too! I took a ton of pictures of this beauty including a few of my adorable dog Wally & a shot with my beloved Rockport loafers. Wendy is an EXACT match for the chain detail on them!

Beach Nail Art With Zoya

August in Oklahoma has me wishing I could head to a beautiful sandy beach for a few days. I'll settle for some beach inspired ail art for now though. I started with Zoya Muse for the blue waters and then added some sandy beach at the tips in Zoya Tomoko. Then I finished it off by sponging on just a bit of foam with Zoya Farah.

Zoya Madeline

Zoya Madeline, from their 2014 Naturel 2 Collection, is described as a muted rose creme. I can't think of a more appropriate polish for work or even an important job interview. Madeline will look great with any outfit and most any skin tone. If you've been looking for a perfect neutral polish for those occasions when you need understated nails, Zoya Madeline is an excellent choice. Shown here at 2 easily applied coats with no formula issues.
 
I love graphic novels! Keep up with my reading on Goodreads!

Zoya Chanelle

Zoya Chanelle is from their Naturel 2 collection and is described as a toasted almond cream. I'd call it a medium toned, well balanced brown that will look nice on a wide range of people. Chanelle is shown here at 2 coats that provided fantastic coverage but weren't the most self-leveling so a top coat is definitely required. Overall it's a lovely color that dries about 2 shades darker than bottle color and a keeper for me since I don't have anything quite like it.

Zoya Entice & Ignite: Quick First Impressions

I opened up these beauties yesterday & just couldn't wait to try them on my nail wheels. I normally wait to recommend polishes until after I've worn them as a full manicure but the Zoya Entice & Ignite collections are mighty impressive right out of the box. There's not a single color that I'm not looking forward to wearing and the formulas all seem outstanding so far.

First up we've got Zoya Entice featuring Claire, Geneviev, & Margo pictured below. Geneviev's formula has just a hint shimmer that doesn't show up on the nail much at all. Margo is a front runner for collection favorite so far.
Nyssa, Ryan, & Veronica are pictured below.
Overall the Entice collection all have outstanding formulas that barely need a second coat.

Then we have the equally gorgeous Ignite Collection featuring Autumn, India, & Remy below. Autumn is the kind of copper polish that I've always wanted & Remy is a definite one coat wonder. Look at all of that color in just one coat!
Ignite also includes Sansa, Tiegen, & Yuna pictured below.
Overall the Ignite collection is also full of rich, unique polishes with truly outstanding formulas. No other company does metallic shimmer as well as Zoya! 

In conclusion, I can't wait to wear all of them! I'll post full reviews of each polish with lots of pictures eventually but I just had to let you know that if you're considering these at all, don't hesitate!

Thanks for reading!

Leopard Print Nails With Zoya

I've done leopard print nails a few times before but never with such bright colors. It's such an easy pattern too pull off and you can try so many variations, like my hidden Mickey nails! For this version I started with Zoya Tilda and then added spots with my dotting tools in Zoya Seraphina and Kimber. Fun summer manicure!

Zoya Marney

Zoya Marney (spelled Marnie on their website but Marney on my bottle) is from their Naturel 2 collection. Zoya calls this one a deep warm plum which is a very accurate description of this beautiful color. So far this one is my favorite from the collection for sure! Marney is very pigmented and I could almost get away with just one coat. The formula was a tad on the thick side so I added a few drops of polish thinner and the second coat applied even more nicely than the first. All in all another excellent polish from Zoya!
I love to read! You can see all of my favorites on Goodreads!

Zoya Harper

Zoya Harper is my favorite from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.

Zoya describes Harper as "a cotton candy pink with a spun gold shimmer. Featuring the exclusive liquid-metal holographic jelly formula" & I agree. 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. Zoya Harper is shown here at 2 coats but I could almost get away with just one.
 
 
 
 

I didn't really like pink polish when I started blogging way back in 2009 but now I love a gorgeous pink and Harper has made into my top 5 favorite pinks for sure! I'd say this one is a must have for pink polish lovers.
