Zoya Naturel Deux Collection Press Release

Zoya Naturel Deux CollectionZoya sent me some new information regarding the Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection that’s available to be pre-ordered starting today!

If you loved the first Zoya Naturel Collection, you’ll also like these new additions that feel right at home in terms of being work-appropriate and easy-to-wear.

While I’m head over heels in love with green nail polish and bold shades that scream their little lungs out, I can appreciate a good neutral every now and then. I always feel really classy when I do so, and I can count on Zoya to deliver creamy formulas that apply beautifully.

In the new Zoya Natural Deux Collection, there are 6 new shades. Half are brownish, and the other half are plummy.

Check out the rest of this post for more detailed information that Zoya sent me, as well as promo pictures, so you’ll get a better idea of the colours and how they can be worn together in many different combinations.

Nail Art: Easy Nail Design Using OPI Juice Bar Hopping & Zoya Dillon

Dotted Manicure Nail ArtA while back, I was wearing OPI Juice Bar Hopping, which is from the new Neon Collection that I did a Quick Post about before.

At that time, it occurred to me that I hadn’t done nail art in what seemed like forever. But, I didn’t have too much time – my schedule these days is so packed, it’s like an elephant’s overstuffed suitcase thrown into one of those little clown cars!

So I played around without any rhyme or reason and did an easy nail design using dots and diagonal sections with Zoya Dillon from the Awaken Collection, which I did a Quick Look post on and also reviewed in-depth here.

Stay tuned because I’ll be sharing lots of swatches of OPI Juice Bar Hopping. I’ve already worn it solo and taken photos – just need to crop them! :)

Zoya Cosmo Swatches & Review

Zoya Cosmo Swatches & ReviewZoya Cosmo from the Magical PixieDust Collection is a gorgeous textured glitter nail polish that has a lot of bling going on! :)

If you liked Zoya Lux, which I showed you not long ago, I think that you’ll really like this because it’s the same concept, except instead of pink, it has a silvery tone.

Wearing Zoya Cosmo is like having diamond-encrusted nails, and it’s more affordable than high-end jewellery, so that’s also a plus! ;)

I think that a lot of people who like trendy, textured polish with lots of glitz will adore this!

When I read the name, ‘Cosmo’, the first thing that came to mind was Cosmo Brown from Singin’ in the Rain. Do you remember that comedic character played by Donald O’Connor? When I watched it for the first time as a kid, I remember having a crush on him because he was so funny, especially during his “Make ‘em Laugh” musical number.

P.S. Remember to get your entry in for a chance to win the entire CND Vinylux Open Road Collection in my giveaway! (Open to Canadian and U.S. residents. Ends May 9 at 11:59 pm EDT.)

Zoya Tickled & Bubbly Collection Press Release

Zoya Tickled & Bubbly PixieDustI’ve had the press release for the Zoya Tickled & Zoya Bubbly Collection in my inbox since last month, but things have been helter skelter in my “offline world”.

(Haha, I never say ‘helter skelter’ in real life. It’s a first!) ;)

Going back to the awesome nail polish!

Zoya is one of those companies that puts out what I consider to be ‘fearless colours’. They never are afraid to express themselves with all colours of the rainbow, and I give them the standing ovation for it!

The Zoya Tickled & Bubbly Collection will be available May 15th.

Check out the rest of this post to find out what’s new in Zoya news! :)

Zoya Lux Swatches & Review

Zoya Lux Swatches & ReviewOkay, now I’m convinced that my stomach blogs for Swatch And Learn because when I first tried to type Zoya Lux, I accidentally typed Zoya Lox! (Haha, lox is brined salmon that I sometimes have with a bagel and cream cheese.)

But no, Zoya has not put out a polish based on my breakfast. (Pity because I eat a lot of delicious things.) ;)

Instead, they have gone the bedazzled route, and created this masterpiece that twinkles like the expensive jewels that I can only admire in store windows.

All 3 shades in the Zoya Magical PixieDust Collection, which Lux comes from are blingtastic.

This gorgeous polish really is like wearing jewelry on your nails because it sparkles a lot and it looks really glamorous!

In the bottle, I thought it was nice. But, it wasn’t until I wore it that I was really impressed by it. In fact, it’s the type of polish that looks better in person, and photos just cannot do it any justice!

P.S. Remember, you still have until May 9 at 11:59 pm EDT to enter my Canada/US giveaway for your chance to win the entire CND Vinylux Open Road Collection!

Zoya Brooklyn Swatches & Review

Zoya Brooklyn Swatches & ReviewGold nail polish is very blingy, if you go for the yellow-toned variety. However, when you sport one that leans more to white gold like Zoya Brooklyn, it gives a more sophisticated look.

Brooklyn is one of the shades in the Zoya Awaken Collection, which I did a Quick Look post on previously.

This shade is very pigmented, and there’s a fragility about the colour that makes it look chic instead of tacky.

Back in the day (elementary school, to be exact!), I used to have a satin, long-sleeved t-shirt in this exact colour! Nobody else in my class wore anything like it, but I think that’s why I loved it. Haha, even if it was ridiculous to wear something like that to school, I did, and I felt confident and luxurious. I wonder where that shirt is now.

Side note: Brooklyn is my niece’s middle name, so when I first read the name of this nail polish, I immediately thought of her!

Zoya Dillon Swatches & Review

Zoya Dillon Swatches & ReviewI don’t know about you, but when I saw “Dillon”, I thought of Dylan McKay (James-Dean wannabe) from the original series, Beverley Hills 90210. (It was very popular when I was in elementary school.)

Of course, he would never be caught wearing this shade. Too bad for him because Zoya Dillon from the Awaken Collection is all kinds of awesome!

This seafoam green is soft and has a seaside feel that makes me think of mermaids and sea glass.

It’s a very pretty addition to any nail-polish collection, and the finish is very pretty – it has a subtle sheen that I find to be very calming, like the ebb and flow of the ocean.
