After a week+ of some sort of strep throat/flu combo and a week back at work, I’m about two weeks behind with the whole new years resolution thing. Actually, I kind of hate the whole resolution thing, it stresses me out. Seeing as leaving the house with one hand painted has become a regular occurrence lately, I figure a good place to start would be to have all of my nails painted… all the time. That of course meant acquiring some new matte polishes to make my goal a little easier.
The Matte Velvets have come and go for a few years now, and Zoya rereleased them all as a limited edition collection for Fall/Winter 2014. I decided to order Dovima and Posh. Red & black are matte must haves. Dovima is described as a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer. Oh I love that alliteration, Zoya! While I really like flat matte polishes, I love mattes with shimmer. Dovima is really just.. perfect. Application was great; I used two coats.
Zoya is currently having an AMAZING promo: New Year New Hue. Order 3 polishes and only pay a $15 shipping fee. Pretty great deal all on it’s own – but it gets better… You’ll also get 3 brand new mini sized mystery shades. 6 polishes. $15. The code is NYNH. The New Year New Hue promo ends 1/14/15 at 11:59 EST.
I’m trying to narrow down my 3 polishes right now… what are your favorite Zoya polishes? Help me choose!

I had so much fun with the BCA pinks from Essie and OPI and my Halloween fun with Sinful Colors and Sally Hansen, but I am ready to leap back into some more traditional Fall colors and I couldn’t think of a better place to start than with Yuna from Zoya’s Ignite Collection. This is the […] Continue reading →
Happy Monday! After I fell in love with Magical PixieDust Bar, I realized I have not given Zoya nearly enough attention lately. I decided to check out the Fall Ultra Pixiedust polishes. How can anyone possibly resist something called an ULTRA PixieDust? Well… I looked at swatches and I wanted to love them. I tried, […] Continue reading →
Happy Labor Day! I was wandering around Ulta Saturday (shocking), looking for a back to school treat for myself and I kept looking at Zoya’s Summer 2014 Magical PixieDust display. I went back and forth between Bar and Ginni. Bar appealed to my love of the beach – it instantly reminded me of impossibly sparkly […] Continue reading →
I’m not even going to lie, I was terrified to try this nail polish! All I could think about was the disaster that was Essie Belugaria. I mean, I still have nightmares that center around that nail polish, I am happy to report that Zoya did not make the same mistakes Essie did. And I […] Continue reading →
Zoya isn’t a brand I pay much attention too. And that has nothing to do with the quality of Zoya polishes. The ones I have tried I quite like. The brand generally just doesn’t excite me. This polish landed on my doorstep via my fellow TDVer, Katie. She sent it to me along with some […] Continue reading →
Today is the big day! Well, for me it’s a big day… I’ll be spending this afternoon baking my very first apple pie! It’s been a few months, but my first attempt at pie making was pretty successful: peach! I inspired Alli to do a little peach nail art! Since I’ll be busy busy all […] Continue reading →
Good afternoon! I hope you’re all having a marvelous Monday! Today I decided to explore the yellow side of my yellow/green obsession! So far this summer, I’ve leaned on the greener side with Covergirl’s Appletini, L’Oreal’s New Money, and China Glaze’s Budding Romance. More recently, I slowly started shifting to the yellow end of the […] Continue reading →
Okay! You win! I finally understand the textured polish trend! When OPI started releasing their Liquid Sand polishes – I just didn’t get it. I’ve always hated having bumpy nails and the idea of doing it on purpose? EEK! So I passed on those. But then…. I saw Zoya’s Pixie Dust promos… and knew right […] Continue reading →
Greetings fellow nail addicts. I am so excited to introduce you to my new nail polish obsession; Zoya Mimi. No seriously. Obsessed! Mimi has been a long time polish lemming of mine. I could just never justify picking it up. Finally I spotted it at Ulta during a recent shopping trip and pulled the trigger. […] Continue reading →
