When it comes to summer collections, Zoya is always at the top of my list. Each year they do a little something different & have a lot of options- like this year with the Zoya Island Fun & Zoya Paradise Sun Summer 2015 collections! Today I wanted to delve into the cream selection so Zoya Island Fun it is! Keep reading to see my swatches & review!
Last week I wore Zoya Tove from the Naturel Satin Collection I reviewed here as kind of a neutral palate cleanser. This shade is a very gray-based blue & just has an awesome formula. Well…within a few days I needed some pizzaz. Are you even slightly surprised? I decided to break out some of the new Zoya Delight Collection for Spring 2015 which are new to me & created this look in maybe 3-5 minutes. Check it out below! [Read more…]
Zoya is constantly coming out with new & interesting finishes- & today I have another one to share! This collection is a transitional selection meant to prep our palettes from winter to spring. I quite like this collection as a palette- very much so my kind of cleanser between nail art & neons. This collection has a satin finish & Zoya calls it “low-sheen” which I hadn’t heard before.

I know you’re probably seeing this a lot- but is it really 2015? I just broke out a crisp new planner & it really hit home! For the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed sharing my yearly favorites in various categories. This year you’ll be seeing quite a few & some will also have video components! To kick it off I had to start with polish- of course! So let’s take a look back at my favorite shades from 2014 by season- & then share yours with me below! [Read more…]
It is safe to say I am in love with winter polishes this season. Holiday polishes are always stunning but there is something to be said for the “winter” themed shades gracing our lives this season. Rich purples? Glitzy blacks? Stunning blues? Triple check- & Zoya fit all of those & more into one collection! Keep reading to check out the swatches & my thoughts on the Zoya Wishes Collection for Winter 2015! [Read more…]

My Stunning Nails is a monthly subscription which contains all the items you need to create an awesome nail design. This month’s look is very girly & a classic brown + pink duo. It comes in a bigger box with a cute box inside. Everything was packaged quite nicely. [Read more…]
This #A2ZNails weekly series has been so fun so far. I love that you guys love it- repetitive? Yes but factual. After last week & my B is for Bold nail art I was looking for something a bit more fall or even winter. The theme this month is Copy Cat so there were tons of options here…but I decided to go with this idea that I pinned awhile ago & just loved. (ps if you don’t follow me on Pinterest you’re missing out- my nail obsession isn’t just restricted to my blog!)
So basically I kind of took her fabulous idea & made it dark, vampy, matte (until I added top coat…), & of course multi-colored because I have no self-control. I personally love it.
So my base color is Zoya Dovima which was lovely. You let it dry completely & then add your striping tape kind of randomly focusing at the tips. I then sponged on each colorful shade focusing again on my tips. I think the outcome is so easy & so beautiful. Obviously her design is way more awesome-ly in your face color-wise but this just feels so fall! My pointer finger (red) is Zoya Posh, middle (purple) is Zoya Savita, ring finger (green) is Zoya Veruschka, & the pink looking color on my pinkie is Zoya Harlow.
In the end I decided to add a topcoat because…shiny! Plus it makes those shimmers really flash. Please ignore the obvious pet hair on my pointer. #that’smylife In the end I really love the design & I barely had to think about it- just pretty much came together!
So what design would you copycat? Next week’s design will be D for Dark, any ideas? I’m kind of at a lost- I need some inspiration! Remember to check everyone else out below!
Fall glitz- I’m so ready for it. Zoya has come out with 3 new shades for fall 2014 in a somewhat new formula as well! These shades are described as Ultra Pixie Dust shades which is a combination of the Magical & regular Zoya Pixie Dusts. I loveee the Zoya textures! All three shades are beautiful & sparkling- check them out below! [Read more…]
Zoya’s first Naturel Collection (swatches & review here!) must have done pretty well among fans because here is a followup! This set of 6 feels like a transition into fall…because that is actually right around the corner. I honestly can’t believe it. Anyway- this collection has really great formulas across the board & the shades are pretty darn flattering. keep reading to check them out! [Read more…]
