Zoya – Yuna

Zoya - YunaI 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 second polish I ordered from Zoya’s Ignite Collection for Fall 2014. The first was Autumn which is one of the best “fall” polishes I’ve ever seen. Does Yuna hold up? Let’s see!

I’d describe Yuna as a dark grey/green with gold and copper shimmer throughout. It’s one of those polishes that just glows from within. It’s eye catching and lovely. For you curious cats out there, Zoya describes Yuna as a warm grey with copper and gold liquid metal.

The application was so easy. My base coat of the moment is Essie’s Protein Base Coat. I added two coats of Yuna and and finished it off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat. Zoya doesn’t always play well with Seche Vite, but I haven’t noticed any issues when I use HK Girl.

I’m so impressed by the Ignite side of Entice & Ignite. I still have my eye on Sansa and Remy.

Zoya retails for $9 and you can order directly from their website. It’s a little pricier on Amazon ($9.99) but it includes free shipping.

Be lovely.

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 →

ZOYA – Karina

Zoya - Karina Bottle 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!

Zoya – Piaf

Zoya - Piaf (plant) 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 →

Zoya Pixie Dust – Nyx

Zoya - Nyx (Sun) 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 →

Zoya Edyta

Zoya Edyta 3 At this point it must have been over two years ago when I walked into Ulta to see they had started carrying Zoya. I was super excited because in high school I was a Zoya devotee. Well, 2 years later, and this is still the only Zoya polish in my collection. Go figure! Originally from […] Continue reading →
