Quick Look: Zoya Delight Collection Swatches & Bottle Shots

Zoya Delight Collection PIcturesWith temperatures dipping to minus 30 degrees Celcius, anything that reminds me of the spring and warmer weather that doesn’t make me feel like Frosty the Snowman’s relative is a good thing in my book!

The Zoya Delight Collection certainly fits the bill. There are lots of cheerful colours that make me think of Easter.

To refresh your memory of the shades, be sure to check out my post on the Zoya Delight Collection press release that I published back in January.

I wore the pink (Eden) for Valentine’s Day, and it has such a smooth formula! (I’m not even crazy about pinks, but that’s a pretty one.)

Check out the rest of this blog post to see bottles shots and swatches of all the colours in the Zoya Delight Collection, and stay tuned when I bring you in-depth reviews on each.

How to Get 3 Free Zoya Nail Polishes & 3 Free Mystery Shades

Remember all the times when I blogged about Zoya and said how I wished that they’d ship to Canada because then I would go nuts? Well, call me a pecan, baby, because I’m dethroning Mr. Macadamia! ;)

If you follow me on social media, you already know what I’m going to say because I jumped on the latest Zoya offer like a kangaroo on a Pogo Stick. (Yeah, that’s a lot of jumping, ain’t it?)

For Zoya’s latest promotion only, they’re extending it not just to Americans (as usual), but also us Canadians! (When I first saw the offer, I had to read it a few times just to make sure I wasn’t in some kind of nail-polish dream.)

Zoya Ships to Canada

Until 11:59 pm EST today (January 14), get any 3 Zoya shades plus 3 mystery colours free when you use coupon code NYNH at checkout on Zoya’s website. (Valid in Canada and the US. Sorry international nailphiles. One day, I hope they’ll also include you.)

When you add 3 colours to your cart, you’ll only have to pay the shipping and processing fee. But, I highly recommend that you buy more – at least $25 USD more. (Hehe! I’m not just saying that because I’m a nail junkie.)

I purchased 6 colours (Yara, Muse, Chita, Ali, Shawn, and Dree), and got free shipping. All I had to pay was the international processing fee, which came to $8.76 USD. My total for the order of 3 polishes, 3 free polishes, and 3 free mystery mini polishes came to $36.76 USD.

The 3 free mystery colours have never been available for retail sale and won’t be available for individual sale. The shades will be available exclusively in mini (0.25 oz) sizes as part of this mystery gift only! (If you’re a serious Zoya nail-polish collector, I know that your rabbit ears are up right now.)

Head over to Zoya’s website to read all the details.

I hope that Zoya will open up more promotions to Canadians and that it won’t just be a one-time thing. It would be so much fun to take advantage of the awesome sales they have.

Out of all the big nail-polish companies out there, Zoya does the most promotional marketing with sales, so that might be dangerous for my wallet, but I’m willing to take the risk. ;)

P.S. If you need help choosing some Zoya nail-polish shades, check out all the ones I’ve blogged about here. (Check out the secondthird, fourth, and more pages for in-depth reviews and swatches of more Zoya nail polishes.)

Have you or will you take advantage of this Zoya promotion? What do you think the mystery shades will look like? Where do you usually buy your Zoya nail polishes?

Zoya Delight Collection Press Release

Zoya Delight CollectionLately, Old Man Winter has been particularly harsh and grumpy lately.

With cold temperatures making my teeth chatter, I’m seriously considering treating him to a spa experience or a pedicure, just so he’ll ease up a bit. ;)

The other day, I opened up my inbox to see the cute colours in the Zoya Delight Collection for Spring 2015!

The Easter-egg hues are so pretty, they almost make me forget about the bitter winds and the mercury dropping.

Available starting February 2nd, the Zoya Delight Collection has a lot of shades that can be easily mixed and matched, which is always convenient.

Zoya is one of the brands that isn’t afraid to release all the colours of the rainbow, and this collection exemplifies that. There’s my favourite, green, plus even a yellow!

Which ones stand out the most to you? How would you wear these? Solo or in a colourful combination?

Zoya Naturel Satins Collection Press Release

Zoya Naturel Satin CollectionIt’s the last day of the year, and I hope that you have exciting plans! :) (I’ll be enjoying a fun dinner tonight with a few drinks, which is what I typically do on New Year’s Eve.)

I hope that you have a great time tonight, whatever you decide to do. Have fun, but be safe! :)

Today, I have the Zoya Naturel Satins Collection Press Release and promotional pictures to share with you. All these colours will be available on January 15!

There are six shades in this collection, and it should come as no surprise that Sage (the mossy green) is the one that I’m the most curious to try. ;)

The Zoya Naturel Satins feature a special formulation that minimizes nail imperfections while providing opaque coverage. They also are advertised as lasting longer than traditional matte nail lacquers.

Nail Art Tutorial: Santa Claus Nails

Santa Claus Nail Art TutorialBack in 2011, I did Santa Nail Art where each nail featured The Big Man in Red’s suit. I really loved that design, and even though I wanted to wear it again, it was time for a challenge. (Click to see my step-by-step tutorial for the Santa Suit Nail Art!)

After seeing The Little Canvas’ cute nails with Kris Kringle’s face, I knew I had to try my hand at this design. Although mine didn’t turn out as well as neatly as hers, I had tons of fun painting this, and it was fun to bring my Santa Claus gang with me everywhere I went! (Thanks to The Little Canvas for the inspiration!)

Haha, I intended the Santas to be smirking or to at least look happy, but I guess my nail striper brush was a bit too thick and I was rushing a little. So, some of my Santas look like they’re being very sarcastic. Haha, can you spot which one drank too much of the spiked elves’ Christmas punch? :P

Hey, it would be neat to combine this and the santa-suit design in a single manicure. You could even paint Santa’s hat on one nail. That would allow you to paint a whole bunch of different designs.
