Zoya Ibiza

Hello Lovelies,

  This is the Second to last color that I have yet to wear from my Zoya collection. This is the sophisticated Ibiza.
  Ibiza is a sophisticated Midnight Blue shimmer that remains Blue even in dim lighting. That is a feat on it's own. This shade has the most amazing formula. It has excellent pigmentation and it is sooo smooth and even. This is the perfect consistency for those of you who are worried with wearing dark colors due to application issues. This could be a one coater but I always do Two coats. The finish on this lacquer is so glassy that a top coat is not necessary (BUT wear one anyways, it won't hurt). The little decorations I made using rhinestones and little beads from Born Pretty Store. I'm sure you can find decorations like those pre- made but I'd rather create my own color combos and it's fun. Ibiza is just lovely and there is something sexy and mysterious about this color without being too "in- your- face". 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Zoya Loredana

Edgy matte nails?

  Yes, please!! Say hello to the awesome Loredana.
  My hubby picked this for me... He has great taste in polish. So, Loredana is an awesome Graphite Grey matte polish that is actually shimmery. Yes, a shimmery matte polish... How does Zoya do it? No idea, but the fairies at Zoya sure do know how to make an excellent matte polish. The formula is unbelievable and so easy to work with. For my mani I used Two coats of Loredana. Even though this is a matte polish is has incredible depth and texture. There is nothing flat, chalky or boring about this polish and I totally recommend it to all matte nail polish lovers out there. I've yet to see it with a top coat because I was really loving Loredana in its original state.

Are any of you lovelies matte lovers?

Zoya Intimate Collection Recap.

Hello Lovelies,

  So over the past few days I have been showing you Zoya's Intimate Collection and I decided to do one single post with all the pictures so you guys can compare all the colors together.
Dannii, Marley, Caitlin, Dove, Gemma, Jules
Zoya Dove 

Zoya Caitlin

 Zoya Marley

Zoya Dannii

Zoya Gemma

Zoya Jules
  Overall this collection is Spring perfection and every single color is a must have, in my opinion. You can see each color reviewed separately in previous posts this week. I think out of all my brands my Zoya color range is one of my favorites. Anywho, this is the first collection where I have purchased every single color and that never happens and probably won't happen again because I am VERY picky. So trust me when I tell you that these are stunning. Thank you Zoya for this EPIC WIN of a collection and giving us such lovely shades for the season.

Thoughts on the collection?

Zoya Gemma

Oh happy day!

   I've been raving about Zoya's Intimate Collection for some time now but the time has finally come to wear Gemma and I am sooo thrilled with this color.
 Gemma is the most amazing of all amazing Greens. It is a soft Olive toned Green creme with an amazing Blue shimmery flash throughout. I could wear this for eternity. The effect is similar to that of Revlon's Perplex but with Green and Blue instead of Taupe and Violet. The formula is dreamy smooth and oh sooo shiny. Like ridiculously shiny. This is such a unique color but without being outrageous. It is very very wearable and flattering. This whole collection has been an EPIC win in my opinion and I couldn't be happier with all of the colors that Zoya has given us for the Spring season!
