Zoya – Felicity

Zoya FelicityTime for a little nail polish rewind! For a really long time I resisted ordering polishes online. I wanted to see them in the stores. Even now, there are only a few brands I’ll order online. Zoya was one of the first brands I broke my “rules” for -and of course it was thanks to one of their amazing promotions. My very first Zoya order included Felicity, Crystal, and Indigo. They’re all in need of reswatching and I was in a super girly mood yesterday so I chose Felicity.

Felicity is a beautiful dusty tea rose pink filled with shimmer – the gold shimmer is the most notable, which is why I love it, but there’s some “champagne” shimmer too. The official Zoya description is a bit ambitious but I’ll let you make your own judgment: soft dusty tea-rose pink with champagne and bright pink duochrome shimmer and flecks of gold. Hmm.

Application was really lovely. I used three coats, just like I did four years ago, and I’m just as happy with the results. Since Zoya doesn’t get along with Seche Vite, I used my HK Girl top coat.

I just popped over to the Zoya Website. Two things. First, it seems Felicity has been retired. I AM SO SORRY. Second, they are having a Name a Polish contest with Redbook – which is fun. I think I’ll enter. No out of this world promos at the moment, but they do have adorable mini collections that include the color lock system for $42 + free shipping for both of their Fall collections: Focus & Flair.

Individual Zoya polishes retail for $9.00. You can grab Zoya at Ulta or on Amazon – whichever suits you best. Even though this polish is retired, you can get it here on Amazon for 7.70 with free shipping. Deal!

Zoya – Yasmeen

Zoya - Yasmeen Right, I know it’s summer but I figured it was okay to slip into Fall mode for the day. A few weeks ago, I asked you guys what some of your favorite dupes were and someone mentioned Zoya Yasmeen as a cheaper alternative for NARS Purple Rain – it peaked my interest. I’m sure a […] Continue reading →

Zoya – Sage

Zoya - Sage Happy Monday! Today will be fabulous. Let me tell you, last Monday was rough. Actually, the entire week was rough – I adore daylight savings and more… daylight but the transition is brutal! Please tell me I wasn’t the only one struggling last week? Friday marks the beginning of Spring and I have lots of […] Continue reading →

Zoya – Posh & Savita

Zoya - Posh + Savita Surprise! In honor of Friday Eve, I thought I’d bring you a two-in-one post! I know everyone is drooling over the Zoya Transitional Satin Collection but I am still falling head over heels for the Rereleased for 2014: Zoya Matte polishes. I PROMISE I’ve learned my lesson this time: stop resisting trends! You know…like the […] Continue reading →

Zoya – Dovima

Zoya - Dovima 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 […] Continue reading →

Zoya – Yuna

Zoya - Yuna 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 →

Zoya – Autumn

zoya autumn 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 →

Zoya- Bar

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Bar 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 →

Zoya PixieDust Vega

Zoya PixieDust Vega cover 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 Codie

Zoya Codie Bottle 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 →
