1066286.ZP_Wishes_banner

It’s here! Zoya’s latest Winter/Holiday release the Zoya Wishes Collection. Zoya Wishes collection consits of 6 polishes total. Thre standard shades Prim, Will and Haven and 3 magical pixiedust shades Thea, Imogen and Nori.

Check out below to see how they look on. All the swatches are with two coats of nail polish. This was a very fun collection, let’s start out with my favorite from the set.

 

zoya haven and thea

Zoya Haven is a true holiday plum liquid metal with a thin vein of orchid to ensure brilliance. Oh how I love this color! Its is winter perfection, the gorgeous plum color is hands down my favorite of this collection.

Zoya Thea is a deep amethyst with Pixiedust and an orchid flash, and packed full of holographic hex glitter.  This color is stunning and pairs perfectly with Haven. This is definitely my go to color of the season, I can’t get enough!

 

Zoya imogen and willa

Zoya Imogen is a black crystal with PixieDust holographic hex glitter. Such a fund shade. I have never used a black base nail polish with so much glitter and really loved this one. And it works great alone or over another polish.

Zoya Willa is a full coverage, densly pigmented onyx black cream. Now black usually seems like a polish color I would only wear at Halloween. But Zoya has made black a gorgeous wearable everyday color for winter. The creaminess of the black mixed with the high shine makes this a very wearable polish.

zoya nori and prim

Zoya Nori is a sapphire blue wih Pixiedust holographic hex glitter. I love this shade the hex glitter adds so much dimension and I love how it played with the light changing the look of the polish.

Zoya Prim is a velvet blue metallic with very good coverage. This polish has a high shine and even one coat was enough to get complete coverage.

 

Zoya polishes can be purchased online at www.Zoya.com and at Ulta. Zoya runs awesome promotions so make sure you follow them on Instagram and Facebook so you don’t miss a single deal!

Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday 2014

zoya-matte-velvet-collection

I was exited to get a sample of the Matte Velvet line and check out this beautiful new collection. This 6 color collection of matte polishes are to be worn on their own no base or top coat needed. Once the color dries it finishes with a velvety matte finish. Check out the colors from this collection all the photos are taken with two coats of polish.

zoya harlow and dovima

Dovima is a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I love the way this looks on, it looks like chalkboard paint. Would be a great base for nail art.

Harlow is a rosy plum shade with a metallic shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I thought this shade would be too pinky but it has the most gorgeous plum base. Definitely a standout color from the collection.

zoya savita and verushka

Savita is a bold, vibrant medium with strong red and gold shimmer. I am not usually a fan or purple nail colors but the matte look mixed with the depth of the red and gold shimmer make this a standout purple I would wear anytime.

Veruschka is a deep evergreen shade with a a strong metallic shimmer in a  velvety matte finish. Could this be anymore perfect for Christmas? This is such a beautiful color on and I find myself loving it more every time I wear it.

 

zpya posh and loredana

 

Posh  is a  cool toned wine red shade with metallic red shimmer and a velvet matte finish. This is a classic shade with a matte twist.

Loredana is a medium gunmetal grey packed with silver shimmer and a shimmery matte finish. This is not a shade I was choose on my own so I am suprised how much I love it. I love the depth of the color and found it very wearable.

Overall I am very impressed with the Zoya Matte Velvet collection. I loved the matte finish and found this still wore for 3-4 days without chipping or fading. Some colors even lasted a bit longer. This is a beautiful collection and would make great stocking stuffers or a secret Santa gift.

New! Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust Fall 2014

Zoya-Fall-2014-Ultra-PixieDust-Collection-2

Zoya has launched a new collection of Pixie Dust shades foe Fall. The new Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust is a collection of 3 shades perfect for Fall and the holidays.

They might look like another set of glitter polishes but these are actually quite different. The polish base dries to a matte finish and there are several sizes of glitter which make for a very unique and pretty look. And I generally hate removing glitter polishes but found this line was pretty easy to remove.

zoya arianna

(Yes I did get polish all over the bottle and my fingers. The results of trying to do a mani on the couch while I was exhausted.) 

Arianna – Arianna by Zoya can be best described as a blue-toned red wine textured PixieDust with Mega Hex particles. I have been wearing this shade for a few days and I love it. I had a lady tell me it looks like Dorothy’s ruby red slippers, perfect description.

zoya noir

Noir – Can be best described as a deep, vampy plum textured PixieDust with red mega hex particles. I love the purple shade of this very grape like, perfect shade for Fall.

zoya oswin

Oswin – Can be best described as a true red textured PixieDust with crimson mega hex sparkles. Pretty basic, red base with red glitter and texture.  This shade dried the most matte of the three, a very pretty red this would be great for the holidays.

The directions say to use 3 coats but I had great coverage with just two coats. One trick this polish is make sure you let each coat dry before adding the next one. I found all three shades dried really quickly.
