Zoya Gemma

17 Sep

I LOVE THIS POLISH!!!  I’m so glad that I chose to order this polish when Zoya had their BOGO promotion.  It took a couple weeks for the order to arrive in the mail, so I’d forgotten what I’d ordered.

When I opened my package and pulled Gemma out, I looked at it for a second and though, “Why did I order this one?”  Then I saw the duochrome shimmer.  Oh yeah, that’s why.

Gemma is a light olive green color with a blue/purple shimmer mixed in.  Despite the fact that green, blue and purple are all cool colors, I think the shimmer warms the green up a bit and softens the shock of a green polish.

It applied smoothly and had full coverage in two coats.  There’s nothing not to love about this polish.

Whether you love or hate greens, you should try Gemma.  I love it!  L.O.V.E.

Zoya Lola + Sally Hansen Glitz Gal

30 Apr

I loved wearing Zoya Lola so much, I glitzed it up a bit and wore it all weekend.  It had been several weeks since I’d used Sally Hansen Glitz Gal and I wanted to use it again.

I’ve been seeing accent nails lately that aren’t the usual ring finger and/or thumb.  I decided to give it a try.  So I put Glitz Gal over Lola on my index and middle fingers.  I’m undecided about how I feel about it.  As a whole five finger look, it’s okay.  The majority of the time I feel like I just see my four fingers and it just looks like a half and half mani.

While I love these two polishes together, I’m not sure I like this arrangement.  What do you think ladies?

Zoya Lola

27 Apr

Holy crap I love this color!  I got this when Zoya did their Share the Love promotion a few weeks ago.  Lola is a super bright pink with with a purple/blue duochrome shimmer.  It’s fantastic!

Application was nice and smooth, but I am a little disappointed with the coverage.  Zoya says the opacity is a four out of five, but with two coats I still had very visible nail line.  I still kinda wonder if I can see some VNL after three coats.  I love it anyway!

Lola is just the happiest, brightest pink I’ve ever worn.  This is definitely going to be a full 20 nail  mani/pedi.  Seriously, get yourself a bottle!

Zoya Petra

Today’s post kinda snuck up on me.  All of a sudden it was time to write a post and I didn’t have anything.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I do have a nail art fail, but I’m not real eagar to share it.  I had a bit of a crazy day.  Thankfully my nails were naked, so it was easy to quickly do something to show you.
Zoya describes Petra as a dark, smoky, dusky grey creme with strong purple undertones.  I think that’s about right.  Under certain lights it looks more purple and sometimes it’s almost brown.  It’s beautiful.  I’ve got it on my toes too.  It was a two coater.  I topped it off with Jordana Quick Shine Top Coat.

On another note; Why do I keep getting Zoya creams that have trace amounts of glitter?  Yes, it’s just a trace amount, but still.  I got two specks of glitter on my index finger alone.  Even a speck or two is enough to ruin a mani if you ask me.   Go get yourself some Petra if you don’t already own it.

Zoya Cynthia

I’m over the birthday nails.  I just don’t want to do them any more.  Instead, I’m playing with some new polishes.  Look at that shine!  This is no top coat, by the way.  The pictures don’t really do this color justice.  It looks black, but is a super dark teal.  The first coat went on pretty thin, but the second coat gave me full coverage.

Just to show you the difference between Cynthia and black, here’s a crazy flashy picture.  The right third of my nail is black and the right two thirds is Cynthia.
