Recently, this fabulous nailcare company, Zoya, had a promotion on Facebook. If their fan page got over 25, 000 fans, they would give away three bottles of nail polish (retail value $21) to whoever ordered and had the special coupon code. All you had to pay was $6.95 shipping!
Of course I had to partake! I had such a hard time choosing colors, they have so many beautiful ones to choose from. Pastels, brights, sparkles, glitters, creams, mattes, duochromes...you name it, they've got it! It was like nail polish overload!
I decided that to make the most of this opportunity, I needed to get the widest variety of polishes I could. I chose Veruschka, which is a beautiful matte, yet sparkly, emerald green. Then I chose Shawn which is a creamy, hunter green. Last but not least, I got Adina. Adina is a duochrome and has a purple base. When you look at it in one light, it has an aqua/green shimmer to it. Shift your hand slightly and it has a pink shimmer. It's a real stunner!
When the polishes arrived today, I was so excited that I couldn't wait to swatch the colors. I had already planned to drive to my Mom's house for the weekend, so I swatched a nail every time I had a few moments at a stoplight. Now this is a practice I do NOT condone or advocate. Do as I say, not as I do, right? As a result, the polish job is a little messy. Adina went on the easiest, but it's more of a sheer color, so you have some room for error. Veruschka was the next easiest. It's so interesting to watch the color dry down to the final matte finish. Shawn took the most coats (3) and required the most concentration. In the end, the color is beautiful and I'm sure that it was purely my painting my nails in my car that was the issue.
My Mom got in two of her polishes today. They are lovely! I will swatch those and post photos later this weekend.
In the end, Zoya's promotion was a great success. I am curious to know how many orders were shipped out as a result of it. It's a lot, just gauging from their frequent Facebook posts of how another 10,000 orders were shipped out.
Would I recommend Zoya? Oh yes. They have such a wide variety of colors, there is something for everyone! You can also get on a mailing list to be made aware of new promotions and deals. Here are a few things you should know about Zoya, from their fan page:
