Zoya Wishes Collection Press Release

Zoya Wishes Collection Winter Holiday 2014 smallerThe Zoya Wishes Collection for Winter Holiday 2014 is now available for pre-ordering!

It contains 6 shades, 3 of which have the Magical PixieDust textured finish. Then, 2 have a metallic finish, and the final one has a dark, gothic sensibility.

I can see how they could be combined in a single manicure to create a cool, coordinated look.

How would you pair the shades to create your own signature style? Or would you sport them solo?

Judging solely on the promotional photos, I think that the 3 Magical PixieDust shades will be my favourites because the extra bling is fun. Plus when you’re in a hurry during the holiday season, it’s nice to enjoy textured polishes that dry super fast and that don’t require a base or top coat!

Quick Look: Zoya Matte Velvet Collection

Zoya Matte Velvet CollectionThe Zoya Matte Velvet Collection features 6 re-released nail-polish colours with the edgy finish that I can best describe as sea glass!

It’s matte, but it’s not a dull kind. The Matte Velvet finish feels more luxurious to me. (I like how each one has a bit of shimmer!)

My favourite is the green, but the deep purple also has me giving it a double-take…and a triple-take! ;)

And would you just look at those gorgeous frosted bottles? So elegant!

In this blog post, I show you bottle shots for all 6 colours in the Zoya Matte Velvet Collection as well as quick swatches. (I’ve also included the official press release, in case you’d like more information about the collection and each colour.)

Then, in future blog posts, I’ll do my usual in-depth reviews with more swatches in different lighting conditions for some of the colours that I wear. :) Stay tuned!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my latest worldwide giveaway by October 24, 2014 at 11:59 pm EDT! You could win the new OPI Don’t Speak 18K Gold Top Coat!

Zoya Ultra PixieDust Collection Press Release

Zoya Ultra PixieDust CollectionHave you heard? The Zoya Ultra PixieDust Collection for Fall 2014 is available to be pre-ordered!

This small (but mighty) collection features three sparkly shades in the fine-sugar texture, which is the Zoya PixieDust finish that many nailphiles (myself included) have fallen for.

They call this “Ultra PixieDust” because not only does it have fine micro glitter, but also larger hexagonal glitter for a cool effect!

In wine, plum, and red, these shades are saturated, and I feel like their rich hues would flatter most skin tones.

Which one is calling out your name? I think all three are gorgeous, but if I absolutely had to pick just one, it would be Zoya Noir, the vampy plum!

As with all Zoya PixieDust nail polishes, you don’t have to wear a base or top coat, which means you’ll finish painting your manicure in a snap!

Zoya Autumn Swatches & Review

Zoya Autumn Swatches & ReviewZoya Autumn is part of the Ignite Collection, which I’m very excited about because it’s fiesty and reminds me of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg!

I think this nail polish is appropriately named because it definitely screams fall to me. It has that warmth to it and some zing like a touch of ginger.

It’s one of those colours that’s very easy to sport because it’s not bright or crazy, yet it’s far from dull or boring.

There’s a ‘sizzle’ about this one, and the sparkle dances on your nails, which is fun to see!

Zoya Yuna Swatches & Review

Zoya Yuna Swatches & ReviewYou know how Ludacris yells, “LUDA!”? Well, when I first laid eyes on Zoya Yuna, for some reason, I read it as “YUNA!” like Luda! ;) No, I can’t just read it normally.

This polish is all kinds of amazing. I can’t think of any nail polish I already own in my ever-growing stash that’s exactly like this, so it’s pretty unique. That’s a hard feat, considering that there are soooo many gorgeous nail polishes on the market. Kudos, Zoya!

This polish is an interesting dusty slate blue with golden-green sparkle. I looked at it for the longest time, and sometimes I thought the sparkles were golden, but contrasting the blue, they sometimes looked a little green.

Regardless, Zoya Yuna is really interesting, and I like how when you first glance at it, it’s unassuming and subtle. But when you take the time to look deeper, that’s when you see the sparkle, and it whispers sweet nothings! ;)

Zoya Entice & Ignite Collection Press Release

Zoya Entice & Ignite CollectionThere are two halves, which make up the new release, which can now be pre-ordered on their official website: the Zoya Entice Collection and Zoya Ignite Collection.

Although both look very promising, I’m drawn more to the Zoya Ignite Collection because of the amazing finish – it’s so fiery!

Those polishes look like the kind where you can’t stop staring on your nails in all different lighting.

Out of all the shades in the Zoya Ignite Collection, Remy makes my heart skip a beat and then do Double Dutch in the school yard! ;) Yeah, that’s how gorgeous I think the shade is!

Which half do you like more, and what are your top 3 picks?
