Zoya Limited Edition Guilty Pleasures Trio

26 Sep

Yesterday I posted a preview of Zoya’s Winter 2012 collection. Turns out they have another collection coming out around the same time! It’s called the Guilty Pleasures Gift Box Trio.

It comes with 3 full size (.5 oz) bottles. The first is a black color called Raven, on the Zoya website it is described as a satiny black with subtle silver shimmer. In this picture though, it just looks black. The other base color is a basic white called Purity. It’s just a pure white, no hint of shimmer or anything. Then, there is the most important part of this box, the 18K gold flake top coat, Guilty.

You can preorder it here. It costs $30, which actually isn’t too bad, considering other gold top coats sell for just as much for only 1 bottle, while this one comes with three. It’s like paying $10 for each polish, or buying just the gold top coat for a “normal” price, and getting 2 free! 🙂

IMPORTANT NOTE!: If you want this awesome deal, preorder it NOW. Zoya says on their website that once the presell is all sold out, they’re done selling it, for good (due to the scarcity of gold). Also, you will not be charged for it until it actually ships to you on October 15, 2012.


Zoya Ornate Holiday Collection Preview

25 Sep

Hey guys! I have some more exciting news to share with you today. For one, I’ve been doing a little more on my blog today and added a ‘wishlist’ page as well as posting some stuff for the next 2 or 3 days.

I spent the entire day just browsing the web for swatches and just looking through different nail blogs and I found something on Zoya’s website. They are letting people preorder the Winter 2012/13 collection!

Wow look at those colors! They’re so gorgeous!

Electro- A full coverage, micro fine diamond holographic glitter with holographic bar tinsel mixed in.

Ziv- Full coverage gold foil with micro diamond particles.

Storm- Holiday black with lots of micro holo glitter.

Aurora- Cool undertone plum with micro diamond holographic glitter. (My favorite so far!)

Logan-  (forest?) green sparkly foil finish.

Blaze- Looks like a darkened fushia/pink with micro holo glitter.

You can preorder the whole collection right here. I’m not sure if I’ll preorder it soon or maybe just wait for it to come out, but I’m pretty sure I’ll get all of them… They’ll be out in stores in October. Yay!

Zoya Opal Swatch

23 Aug

I am so excited about this post! Today I am swatching Zoya Opal from the Spring 2012 Fleck Effect Collection. I have been looking for this one for sooo long! I finally found it, and on sale too! It was only $6! Yay!

This is a green to blue iridescent flakie polish. It is only the second flakie polish that I own, even though I happen to love them! Needless to say, I was so excited to wear this!

I hate how hard it is to get decent pictures of this! I’ll try it over white and maybe repost it another time. But this is 2 coats of Opal over 2 coats of Sally Hansen’s Black Out.  Wowie… That’s all I can say. Flakies are such beautiful polishes and this is one of the best I’ve seen. Especially the dark blue iridescent part. The formula is great, I only used 2 coats because I wanted more flakes, I can’t get enough!

If you guys can’t find this near you, order it! Totally worth it!

Zoya Sarah Swatch

3 Aug

Today for you guys I have a lovely polish I picked up at Ulta the other day – Zoya Sarah. It came out with the Fire and Ice Collection for Winter 2010.

It’s a beautiful deep red shimmer. In the bottle there is a little bit of a copper shimmer also, but that didn’t show up on the nail.

It makes perfect sense that this was released with a holiday collection, because this is the perfect Christmas red! So beautiful and shimmery. It’s almost like a red foil color, so pretty!  It reminded me a lot of China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps but a little pinker instead of dark red. It’s pretty opaque too, I only used 2 coats in this picture.

All in all, I think this is a super gorgeous polish and a good addition to my collection 😀
