Zoya Cole Swatches & Review

Zoya Cole Swatches & ReviewA peachy polish like Zoya Cole from the Awaken Collection makes me think of the spring and summer, when the weather’s warm and the sun peeks its head out of the clouds more.

It also reminds me of Creamsicles, sorbet, and frozen yogurt. (But sometimes my stomach blogs for Swatch And Learn!) ;)

This creamy pastel orange is a happy colour, and it’s perfect if you want your nails to be seasonally appropriate. (Then again, feel free to rock this even in the dead of winter or whenever you want. Nail polish is about having fun and self-expression, after all!)

Interesting factoid: I read on Zoya’s website that they originally released Cole during NYFW as Stella for Peter Som’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection.

Zoya Rebel Swatches & Review

Zoya Rebel Swatches & ReviewZoya Rebel is from the Awaken Collection, which is new for Spring 2014, and it’s one of those shades that also has an icy look to it.

On one hand, it reminds me of raindrops, but on the other hand, it conjures up mental images of icicles and Old Man Winter blowing cold air over the frigid land.

Unfortunately, yesterday, I woke up to lots of snow. On my way to work, I snapped a photo of the snow-covered plants. You may have seen the Instagram photo I posted. Yup – winter strikes back, indeed!

I’m still waiting for Mr. Winter to get the memo that he’s overstaying his welcome. He needs to share the calendar year with 3 others, y’know? C’mon! Sharing is caring!

Zoya Hudson Swatches & Review

Zoya Hudson Swatches & ReviewZoya Hudson from the Awaken Collection that I shared a Quick Look post on is great for putting a little bit of spring onto your fingertips.

It’s a soft purple that makes me think of Easter, and the silver brings to mind little droplets of rain that you see on the windowpane, as you gaze outside on a spring evening.

(I really love doing that! The sound of rain is so relaxing, haha, unless you have to go to the washroom!) :P

This shade is just the manicure I needed to brighten my spirits because 2014 has been challenging so far on several personal levels.

Peach Nail-Polish Comparison Swatches & Photos

Peach Nail Polish ComparisonIt’s already spring, but Old Man Winter is being rude and overstaying his welcome.

There’s only so much cold weather I can take. (My hands and feet sometimes feel like blocks of ice! Brrrr!)

To coax winter into allowing the spring weather to arrive, I thought I’d do a Peach Nail-Polish Comparison post.

Don’t know about you, but whenever I see peach nail polish, I immediately think about the spring and summer!

Let’s see if a little colour therapy works!

Quick Look: Zoya Magical Pixie Collection

Zoya Magical Pixie CollectionSo, things are still hectic on my side of the pond. As you know, I moved to a new place, and I’m still doing a lot of unpacking and organizing because right now, haha, it’s like I’m living in a sea of cardboard boxes! ;)

I’ve been trying to get my blog posts up daily (Monday-Friday) before and even during my move. So far, I’ve done it without any hiccups. Yay!

The technician will be hooking up my internet in the next couple of days, so hopefully I’ll have zero interruptions.

However, just in case I’m unable to continue making my posts seamless, you’ll know why. I’ll do my best to keep the blogging train going, though.

Today, I have for you another Quick Look post with swatches and bottle shots of the Zoya Magical Pixie Collection!

Which one is your favourite of these glitter textured polishes?

Quick Look: Zoya Awaken Collection

Zoya Awaken Collection 2014The Zoya Awaken Collection for Spring 2014 is full of cute colours that are definitely very appropriate for the warmer weather that’s hopefully coming soon! (I’m so over you, Winter!)

There are 6 gorgeous shades, and I think it should be obvious that my favourites are the green, blue, and purple. However, I’m also really digging that pale cantaloupe!

Check out my quick swatches of the Zoya Awaken Collection, and then come back later when I review them in-depth after I’ve worn them as full manicures.
