Remember the Valentine’s Day promotion that Zoya ran that I posted about? Well, my two polishes came today! Woot! I am surprised that they got here so soon because usually it takes eons for Zoya to ship stuff when they have promotions. If you recall, they ran a promo where you picked one of their classic reds and then picked another polish from any of their collections and you only paid $8 and got free shipping. My one beef with Zoya is their high shipping costs, so I only order when they have a promo code that includes free shipping.
Here is the classic red that I picked: Diana. I freaking love this polish. Red with a jelly finish? In looooove! It reminds me a lot of OPI’s Vodka & Caviar. This was perfect with two coats and I still can’t get over how beautiful and shiny this is.
Lotus is part of Zoya’s new True Collection for Spring 2012. Of course I wanted this beautiful purple even though I kept thinking in my head that I already had some somewhat similar colors (Zoya Neeka, OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI). Well, the shimmer on this is super understated. Unless you’re looking at it in the sun, it can just blend in the background. I like the pink shimmer but it’s so faint that it doesn’t really make that much of a difference. I thought the formula was deceptively sheer. I thought it would be more opaque, but it took 3 coats for these swatches.
So keep an eye out for Zoya’s frequent promotions. They are very generous!
