Zoya Nail Polish: Lovely!

I didn't know anything about the Zoya brand at all until I read a blog post that featured the Zoya nail polish "Rica," and I immediately fell in love with that color. So I did some digging online to find the most reasonable place to buy, and settled on The Art of Beauty. Coincidentally, a few days after I found The Art of Beauty and signed up to receive their emails, I got an email offer for buy one Zoya polish, get TWO for free. Way better than a BOGO offer! So that's the only push I needed to place my order. Here are the details:

:::  THE SPECS  :::

Zoya Nail Polish can be found at a number of different websites, but the best deal seemed to be from The Art of Beauty. They offer every Zoya color possible, and the website makes it very easy to find the perfect color. In regards to how each color looks online versus in person, based on the swatches I did, they were very true to the pictures online. If you're unsure of the color, they offer color spoons at $0.50/each that are spoons filled with the actual polish you'd be receiving. I didn't bother with that before I ordered though. I picked my first color, and then the additional two free colors, and with shipping, my order was $14. Each polish is $8, so shipping was about $6 for the three polishes — not cheap, but not completely unreasonable. They arrived packed in a very secure package, with a packing material I haven't seen used before.
The three colors I bought: Reva, Rica and Happi.

:::  THE PRODUCTS  :::

Each nail polish is $8.00. Since I used a "buy one get two free" offer, as mentioned above, I only paid $8.00 for all three, before shipping. It's similar to what you'd pay for OPI nail polishes, so I didn't have a problem with it.

(1) Zoya Reva Nail Polish — Described as "A cool toned strawberry red with glowing golden metallic sparkle.  A very rich and luxurious looking gilded red." I find this description to be pretty accurate. I'd say the color leans more toward a fuchsia tone, but it depends on the light.
(1) Zoya Rica Nail Polish — Described as "Warm light coral with pink and orange tones and heavy gold metallic sparkle." This is as lovely as I hoped it would be, and definitely my favorite of the three.
(1) Zoya Happi Nail Polish — Described as "Pink metallic duochrome. A frosty hint of gold creates a unique peachy-pink." This is a color you have to see in person in order to appreciate how complex it is. It looks even better than it did on the website, so I was pleasantly surprised.

:::  THE OPINIONS  :::
I knew I'd like Zoya's products from the moment I saw "Rica." I believe I just fell into a slight Zoya addiction now, perhaps bypassing OPI. Zoya seems to have a more unique selection of colors, and as mentioned in the product descriptions, very complex colors and duochrome effects that I don't feel like I've seen from every other company. In regards to the technical aspects of the nail polishes, they all felt smooth to the touch once they dried — even Rica, which is full of glitter. So in that respect, they all seem to be made with a strong formula that applies evenly with significant coverage. I have nothing but good things to say about these polishes overall. Rica is still my favorite, with its perfect combination of coral, pink and gold; but Reva is a gorgeous color that reminds me of ruby slippers, and Happi was even prettier than I expected it to be.

:::  THE RATING  :::

Stay Fabulous!
