Zoya Mallory

Hey y’all! I finally squeezed in some time to catch up on my blog. Lots of posts coming up! Today’s blog post is on a shade from Zoya’s Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. Here’s Zoya Mallory.

Zoya Mallory

Mallory is a very beautiful blue crème shade. This is quite a unique blue shade for a nail polish in my opinion. It is not periwinkle but it certainly made me think of that color. It is described as “a full-bodied, Prussian blue with deeply saturated color”. Formula is really nice but this shade strikes me as a potential stainer. Definitely use base coat with this. Shown is one with no top coat.

Zoya Courtney

Hey y’all! I finally squeezed in some time to catch up on my blog. Lots of posts coming up! Today’s blog post is on a shade from Zoya’s Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. Here’s Zoya Courtney.

Zoya Courtney

Courtney is a pretty dark red crème shade. I am not a huge darker reds but this looks better than I thought it would. It is described as “deep red beet root shade with a full coverage, and smooth application”. Formula is on the thicker side and I can still see my nail line with 2 coats. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

It’s one of the more unique ones in my stash.

Zoya August

Hey guys! I thought I’d feature a shade today that I personally think can be worn year-round. Today’s blog post is on a shade from Zoya’s Fall 2016 Urban Grunge Collection. Here’s Zoya August.

Zoya August

August is a pretty grey crème shade. I am not a huge fan of greys but this is one of my favorites. It is described as “a full coverage gray like a fine, expensive leather with mid-ranged, balanced tone”. Formula is on the thicker side but it is no one coater. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I find this shade light enough to work with pastel-ish summer colors.

Zoya Aster

Happy Thursday!!! This week has been interesting and I’m glad that the weekend is almost here so I can take a break from thinking about it. Today’s blog post is on a stunning shade from Zoya’s Spring 2016 Petals Collection. Here’s Zoya Aster.

Zoya Aster

Aster is so, so pretty! This lavender-lilac shade with such beautiful glass fleck-ish microshimmer is really something else! It is described as “a fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia to create a dewy finish, mimicking the look of spring flowers in the morning”. Formula is really nice and thicker than most shades in this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

It’s definitely perfect for Spring and even as an Easter shade!

Zoya Tulip

Happy Tuesday! I’m hoping it would be a productive day today at work since I have a lot to do. Sometimes I wish I still had a planner but I usually start diligently with one then slack off. I didn’t want to start with it again unless I’m committed to it. Today’s blog post is the last one I have from Zoya’s Spring 2016 Petals Collection (Zoya Laurel broke in transit sadly). Here’s Zoya Tulip.

Zoya Tulip

Tulip looked to be a crème shade initially but it’s actually a shimmer. It is described as “a pure pastel salmon cream with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal soft finish”. Formula is the one I liked the least in the entire collection. It’s quite sheer and went on patchy but evened out eventually with more coats. It looks so squishy in person almost like a jelly shade! Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

I ended up liking this shade more than I originally thought I would.
