Zoya Spam!

Happy Friday! Did anyone watch the VMA's last night? I mostly fast forwarded through it but I seriously think I will have nightmares featuring those giant dancing lips from Pink's performance haha! Today I have the majority of the polishes I bought in the last promo Zoya did. I got 8 polishes in total, the 2 I'm not showing are Purity and Raven. I'll have swatches of those up eventually I just haven't had a chance to try them out yet! I'd love to hear what you guys got in the Zoya promo in the comments if you were able to take advantage of it!


To see swatches & reviews of each shade click the read more button below



Envy is a dark blackened green with a very subtle shimmer. I actually didn't notice this had shimmer in it until I started applying it. The formula was really nice, it flowed nicely and was easy to apply! I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Jacy is a berry shade with magenta and violet shimmer. The shimmer in this is beautiful, the way it catches the light and sparkles is so much better than any photo can show. This was on my wishlist for so long, I'm happy I finally decided to buy it! The formula was nice, a little bit thick but easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.






Jo is a light cornflower blue with a blue/silver shimmer. The shimmer in this was a little more frosty than I was expecting but I do like this. I preferred it in low lighting and inside since that killed the frost look this had in the sun and in bright lighting. The formula was a bit on the thick side but I had no application issues. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Shade
Lo is a bright pink creme. This is actually not at all like I thought it would be, in most of the swatch photos I saw and in the color blob on the Zoya site it looks much softer and toned down. Mine is a lot more hot pink than I expected, it was practically neon when I was out in the sun. I do like the color I just wish this had been more like I was expecting it to be. The formula was nice, a little streaky but I only needed 2 coats.





Malia is a light dusty violet creme. This is another that has been on my list to buy forever, so glad I finally got a bottle! The formula was great, I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Tart is a bright blue metallic. This reminds me a lot of something like OPI Swimsuit Nailed It but it's not as much of a foil finish. Gorgeous shade but I'm not as in love with it as I thought I would be. The formula was just okay, it was a little more watery than I love. It was also a bit patchy, I needed 3 coats to even it out.



Zoya is available at Zoya.com for $8 a bottle. Make sure you have an account on Zoya's website so you don't miss out on any of their awesome promos! You can also find a limited selection of Zoya at Ulta!

  1. Jacy is very pretty! I like the shimmer in that one. Im not big on anything that looks frosty though so I tend to stay away from those. Envy looks like a nice dark green/black.

    I got Paloma, Frida, Rekha, Natty, Carey, Skylar, Faye, Tru(off to a friend).
    I'm really liking the glosses for layering over other polishes. Tried out a bunch on combos on a nail wheel. Neeka with a coat of Paloma over it is so pretty.

  7. Zoya has really been climbing my list of favorite polishes lately - in the BOGO deal, I picked up: Edyta, FeiFei, Pippa, Rica, Happi, and Zuza - and yesterday using the new Trio code, I picked up: Paloma, Frida, Katherine, Natty, Noot, and Evvie! I love Zoya's formula and colors. Your swatches look great - I love Envy most! :]

  9. Malia was one of the polishes I snagged in the BOGO deal too and seeing your swatch I'm even more pumped about it. I got 8 total, the other seven are Shelby, Kennedy, Breezie, Shawn, Carey, Reagan and Natty! I love their glass flecks/shimmers but I'm so much more drawn to cremes and their cremes are SO consistently nice that I made myself stick to just those this time. I'm pretty excited about getting them!

  10. hiya, Would love it if you could possibly do a comparison of Tart vs Swimsuit Nailed it vs Blue Year's Eve or other similar blues. Thank you!

  11. I'm not much of a pink person, but Lo looks gorgeous on you. Love the rest of the colors as well.

  14. Are Malie and OPI Do You Lilac It dupes?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Jacy looks a lot like SpaRitual Primitive. I love it.

  16. I haven't put them side by side but going off memory I think Do You Lilac It is lighter.

  17. I love Jacy and Jo! I need to remember to pick those both up soon. I have Tart and had the same trouble but I do love the color. I bought Tracie, Carly, Song, Katherine, Reagan, Wednesday, Natty and Feifei. They haven't arrived yet but I can't wait to try them all out.

  18. Oh wow! Dude. I love Malia! *adds to list* :D I have put Jo in and out of my shopping basket so many times. I still don't own it but I'm loving how it looks in the shade - super pretty color and finish. But that frostiness that comes out in the sun is a bit...too frosty. I am not a sun person though so how it looks in the shade is more important to me though! :)


    I got lots of pretties with the Zoya promo! Oh man, I love love LOVE when they have free shipping with the promo! It's the BEST! Free shipping is huge. It can be the difference between definitely and maybe when thinking about placing an order for me. :) When I hear promo + free shipping I am like YES 100% DEFINITELY! :D
    From the BOGO promo I got:
    FeiFei - I am soooooooo in love! Beyond gorgeous!!! <3Song - even more vibrant and beautiful in person! *swoon*Daul - ack! I already own Orly Oui and didn't realize that this was a dupe. :/ Still a beauty though!
    Mimi - was on my list forever and it's finally mine! As a purple lover I hang my head in shame for waiting so long to own this. It's beyond AMAZING!!!Rina - my glitter trio is now complete! YAY! *\o/*Kimmy - how did I not get this when they had the Sunshine/Summer promo??!? It looks like a roaring fire in a bottle! WOW! *jaw dropper*
    I also had the 'Spend $10 get a polish free + free shipping' promo in my Zoya account so I used it before it expired at the end of the month. I had the regrets over not getting Rekha with my BOGO order so I got:
    Rekha - oh man, it really is one of the most perfect red creams ever made! Adina - another one that was on my list forever that I finally got. Sooooooo duochrome-y! :DNeeka - again, as a purple lover...how did I wait this long to own this?!?? Gorgeous!
    Thank you, Zoya!!! I love all the beautiful polishes I got! <3

  19. This was my first time ordering polish from Zoya so I'm anxious to see how easy it is to use. I got Caitlin, Kristen (had to get one with my name after all!), Wednesday, Paloma, Snowsicle, and Elodie. Now that I have the fall spoons, I'm wishing I had picked up Natty and Rekha. I guess there's always next time!

  20. I got FeiFei (which I'm wearing right now; I'm in love with it), Natty, Paloma, Frida, Katherine, and Caitlin.

  21. Um what Zoya Promo? I've had such tunnel vision from the Ulta Butter London BOGO I must have missed this. I love Zoya; one of my favorite polishes.

  22. Malia is very pretty. Since you are pleased to have purchased it, is it safe to assume you have no dupes?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just bought Caitlin and LOVE it!

  24. I haven't checked my stash for dupes, sorry!
