Zoya – Cinnamon

Zoya Cinnamon BottleA few nights ago, it finally felt like Fall. The leaves have started to change and the air was crisp. I decided to channel that feeling onto my nails.

I’ve just fallen head over heals for this polish. Cinnamon is a part the Flair side of Zoya’s Focus & Flair Collection for Fall 2015. I will forever love the sparkly sides of Zoya’s collections. Fun fact: Cinnamon was originally created for Zang Toi’s Fall/Winter 2015 show at NYFW.

But here’s the thing… Zoya describes this as a classic bronze liquid metal. I just.. no. It’s brown. Stop trying to make fetch bronze happen, Zoya. I could maybe buy into the liquid metal part, but mostly it has the lit-from-within beautiful glow that Zoya does so well. It’s like a rich simmering hot chocolate with a dash of pegacorn dust. Something like that should exist.

As always – really, always- this applied  perfectly. I used two coats. They were smooth and easy. I always get excited because putting on Zoya polish is so effortless. I really can’t stop thinking about Aggie & Ember. If you’ve tried them, let me know what you think!

Zoya retails for $9 and you can order directly from their website. You can grab it on Amazon in the $7.00-$9.00 range. Ulta also carries Zoya.

Zoya – Felicity

Zoya Felicity Time 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 […] Continue reading →

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 →
