Zoya Swatch Spam!! Pic Heavy!

Hello All,

So, As I was sitting starting at my nail polish shelf and disparing a bit at all of my untried's.. I decided to take down all of my untried Zoya's and swatch them all, and put them in a massive swatch post for all of you!

And this is the result of a massive swatching day, and many many beautiful Zoya's. Seriously, I don't know why I haven't tried them before!

Roll that beautiful bean footage..

Errr..

Swatch footage??

Onto the Pictures..

Mush!



   First up, we have Zoya Savita, which is a beautiful deep purple matte with a slight pink shimmer. Which you can see more, when it is shiny..(I have included a shiny pic) This polish was super pretty, I loved it. It's such a rich deep purple, and it went on beautifully, unlike it's cousin Phoebe (more on that later) I had zero application problems, and I used three coats.

  Up next we have Yasmeen, Which is a beautiful Pink leaning Purple polish that has a pink shimmer to it. It's super amazing. It's super deep and glowy, and it totally almost reminded me of Max Factor Fantasy Fire, sort of anyways! It has that amazing deep purple and that great shimmer...  So beautiful! I need to wear this again, Stat! I had no application problems, and I used 3 coats for the following pictures.

Next up is Carly! A super beautiful magenta leaning purple foil. This polish was super opaque, and it only took two coats for the below pictures! I almost could have gotten away with one coat if I had been a bit more careful. It's super shimmery, there were no application problems at all!

Now we have Evangeline, which I really just bought for the name. Seeing as if/when Josh and I have a baby, if it is a girl, we want to name her Evangeline, and what would be better than presenting her with her very own nail polish that is named after her?? 

Evangeline is a nice deep pink with an orangish gold shimmer to it. It's really beautiful, and I love the color! There were no application problems, it went on super smoothly, and I used 3 coats!

This is Zoya Dana, and I apologize for the slight blurriness in the pic, my camera sort of freaked out with how bright this color was. Dana is a bright pink Creme, which bordered on a jelly. It had some application issues, it was a little thin and patchy, but three coats evened everything out! This one actually has a top coat on it as well, to make it extra shiny.

This is Happi, and beautiful light pink shimmery polish with a hint of a duochrome in it. It has an amazing yellow/spring green shimmer in it that is super amazing! I honestly don't have anything like it in my collection at all, and I actually wore this out to dinner! It was a little thin and streaky, but it evened out well, and this color is so worth it! I used 3 coats of Happi for the below pictures.

This is Tanzy, another nail polish that I bought because of the name! I am a writer, and I have had a few characters named Tanzy! So, I had to pick this up, now they just need one named Andrina..

Tanzy is a beautiful orange shimmer with gold glitter in it, it was a bit sheer but it built up well! I used 3 coats of Tanzy!

Next we have Midori, which is an apple green polish with a light yellow shimmer! This color is super amazing, perfect for spring! I loved this shade of green, and I know I will be wearing this one more often! It went on super well, and I used 3 coats for the below pictures.

This is Wednesday, a beautiful dusty teal green. It shows a bit lighter here than it does in real life. It is super pretty, and it reminded me of a rainy day. I am not sure why, but just looking at it, made me think of a dreary gray day. Which we get up here a lot in Tacoma! It's a good winter color! 
It was a bit thick, and slightly streaky, but three coats evened everything out!

Ahhh, here we have Phoebe. This is a bright blue matte polish, and while it is beautiful, it was a pain to apply. It went on streaky, was super sheer, and it shows every single one of the ridges in my nails! Grr! Seriously, this was annoying to apply, but finally, after about 4 ish coat.. It got opaque, evened out and then...

Glorious isn't it? Such a beautiful and amazing blue!! This one is soo worth the tricky application.. And for a bonus I added a Shiny picture too!

And last but certainly not least, we have Ginessa, which is a pretty sparkly white polish. It has a tiny bit of silver in it, which makes it pretty unique. It's a great base color! In fact I am wearing some nice black vine stamping over it! 

It was a bit sheer, and it took about 3 coats to build up..

  1. I love the mattes (I own all except Harlow), but out of the 100+ Zoyas I have I think Happi is my favorite & it's not even a color I would normally like, it's just so pretty on the nail!

  3. Wow, Phoebe with the shiny top coat is amazing. It is ironic that I liked the mattes better when you added a glossy top coat, but I love using my matte top coat on a lot of my foils, glitters and shimmers,
