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.

Zoya Azalea

Hey guys! It’s the weekend! I am so glad for the work week to be done so I can catch up on some sleep tonight. 🙂 Today’s blog post is on another shade from Zoya’s Spring 2016 Petals Collection. Here’s Zoya Azalea.

Zoya Azalea

Azalea is right up my alley! I love shades that are fuchsia or magenta! It is described as “a classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash”. Formula is not as thick as other shades in this collection like Zahara but it’s more opaque. This is hands down my favorite shade from this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I love it when nail polish companies makes shades like this! We need more of them!
