I managed to get an entire collection in this past weekend and it just so happens to be from Zoya. I really like these shades a lot as they are very Spring-y and perfect for Easter. In random order, here are swatches for Zoya Delight Collection.
First up is my favorite, Daisy.
Daisy caught my eye immediately being that it’s a bright yellow shade. This is one of the few yellows I’ve seen done right with a shimmer finish. It is described as “a refreshing lemon merengue yellow metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash”. The shimmer looks like it’s a hint of green or silvery green. I find the formula for this really good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
Next we have Lillian.
Lillian is a pastel blue shade that’s a bit light for the Easter theme but works perfectly as a Spring shade. It is described as “a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish”. Formula is good and more opaque than I thought. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have Leslie.
Leslie is a pretty purple or lilac shimmer that glows. It has a silvery green shimmer that ends up giving this shade a bit of a duochrome finish. This is described as “a soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash”. Formula is slightly creamier than the others in this collection. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.
Next up is Tiana.
Tiana is the green version of Tiana in color and finish. It is described as “a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish”. I find it to be more sheer than I thought it would be but the formula is self-leveling. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
Up next is Rayne.
Rayne is the blue version of Leslie. I am loving the shimmer in this shade. It’s like it has a hint of green in it. It is described as “a dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash”. Formula is beautiful as with most from this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Last up is Eden.
Eden is a bright pink shade that lots of little girls would love in their Easter basket! I love how creamy and glossy this shade looks. It is described as “a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish”. Formula is just like Leslie — really nice and creamy in application. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.
I love all of the shades in this collection. I’m disappointed when companies tend to play it safe and redundant with their Spring collections. The only thing that is possibly redundant in this collection is that there are 2 blues. Maybe they could’ve swapped one for orange but Zoya has several good orange shades already.

Hey guys! How has your weekend been? Are y’all ready for Thanksgiving and all the sales surrounding that? I’m not going to stress over the sales at all this year. I haven’t really in the past few years. I just do some light shopping online cause I’m pretty much done with what I need to get for gifts by now. I’m looking forward to the food more really. We’re deep frying some chickens while my SIL will be roasting the turkey. I’m going to probably bake some Nutella cupcakes and help my husband with the homemade apple pie. Today’s post is on another shade that the sweet Polish Insomniac sent me for a giveaway replacement package (read about it here). Here’s Nicole by OPI The Gold Shoulder.
If I remember this right it’s a Walmart exclusive shade. This shade is packed with gold glitter in silvery gold shimmer. The gold glitter bits is more sparse but it’s definitely there. Formula is a little bit watery but applied beautifully. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Hey guys! Hope y’all are having a great week so far. The weekend is coming up fast and I have lots of plans to catch up on my blog. Today’s post is on a shade that is pretty special to me. You see, this shade will always make me think of Polish Insomniac and the story behind how this shade got to me. I won an Instagram round robin giveaway that she took part of a few months ago. The prize she’s giving away on her IG account is a set of the OPI Mustang Collection. She informed me happily that I won and promptly sent out a package. She was very excited as she decided to include something else from my wish list that she also had on hand. Such a sweet girl! It was around the time I was set to leave for a road trip to Yellowstone that the package should’ve arrived. It didn’t, but I figured it just got slowed down in the mail. About 3 weeks later with still no sign of the package, I figured it was lost. BUT I didn’t want to not acknowledge that she did send something off to me, so I sent her a message on Twitter telling her that it hasn’t arrived and it could be lost but I wanted to thank her anyway. She responded pretty quick that she looked up the tracking and it showed that it has never left her residence. The package was never picked up! It was stolen. I reassured her that it’s okay since I’ve been on both sending and receiving ends of something that got lost and I didn’t want her to worry about it. She seemed more upset than me and understandably so. She put thought into sending the extras she wanted me to have.
Fast forward to a few days later, I got a package in the mail. It was from her. She sent out another package with all shades from my wish list and included the shade I told her I was most excited to get when she first informed me that I won her giveaway: OPI The Sky’s My Limit. So here it is ladies and gentlemen….
The Sky’s My Limit is this very pretty metallic blue shimmer. It’s not a shade I’ve never seen before (made me think of OPI Catch Me In Your Net), but it’s the prettiest one from the collection to me. It’s pretty opaque that I could’ve used one less coat. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
I love this shade and the story of how it got to me. Check out Polish Insomniac‘s blog if you haven’t yet! She’s one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve come to know over the years.
