My Zoya Haul!

Since I now have my snazzy little DIY light box to play around with, I thought I'd take some pics of some of the Zoya polishes I purchased during that sale that I mentioned a while back (which I hope you took advantage as well! If you did, leave a comment and tell me what shades you got!).

I can't show you all the colors I purchased because some of them are going to a relative as a present and I don't want to spoil the surprise, but here are the colors I purchased for moi!





Here are some closer looks at different angles:

(sorry this one's so blurry but it was extremely difficult to capture the complexity that is Yasmeen...the best photo also happened to be the most blurry.)

There are swatches all over the net of these shades, but if there is anything in particular that you'd like me swatch, just leave a comment and I'd be happy to do so!

Do you own any of these shades? I have to say I think I'm loving Yasmeen the most right now...


  1. I have Yasmeen and Roxy. I haven't tried Roxy yet, but it looks so awesome! I did try Yasmeen and I didn't see what all the hype was about, I think I need to try it again.

  2. I got Rea, Emme, Meadow, and Yummy from that sale. So far Rea looks amazing, and Yummy is my first true light-blue color, so I'm really excited to try them all out! I haven't used any of them yet, though, as I currently have OPI Mad as a Hatter on right now for the opening of Alice in Wonderland! So exciting!

  3. Yasmeen was the first Zoya I ever owned. I also own Roxy. Both are gorgeous :)

  4. I have Roxy, and I love it! I got about 20 bottles during their sale last year where you turned in old bottles and got any Zoya you wanted for $2 each! Love Zoya!

  5. I've never tried Zoya, but Yasmeen looks gorgeous. I think I actually heard my nails tell me to buy it. Don't you just love drug induced hallucinations?

  6. contests and such: I definitely think you should try it again--I have it on today and in full sunlight it's one of the most beautiful shades I've ever seen! So complex! :)

    Amy: Oooh, you picked some great ones! And YAY for taking advantage of that sale. :) I love how you're wearing the OPI shade to commemorate the opening of the movie! :D

    Phyrra: I had a feeling you would love Yasmeen too. :D

    chickadee: Wow, you SCORED!! I am so bummed I didn't take advantage of that crazy deal. :(

    dangerkitty: LOL!! Buy. It. Now. That is all. ;)

  7. I LOVE Zoyas! I wish I had more because they are my favorites. I have Zara, Kiki, Evangeline, Cassi, Elke, Anthea, Meadow, Astra, and Dita. They make great colors! Now I want more...:P

  8. StardustStephanie: Oh man, I really, REALLY want Evangeline. Is it as pretty in real life? And wow, you lucky girl for having so many Zoyas! :D

  9. One of the shades I got (Heather ^-^) looks almost identical to Miley.
    Happi looks really cute!

  10. Oh my I love love love your polishes color. Love it. Very nice. I did not take the advantage of this because I do not work, so it still a lot of pay for. hee hee.

    Oh what DIY lightbox is that? Can you show me?

  11. Please swatch happi. I like peachy colors. Thanks!

  12. Heather: Oh yes, Heather is super pretty, but I think, in real life, Miley might be a little more on the lilac side (my pics really make it look blue). Hope that helps! :)

    nogocupham: Scroll down ONE post to my Prestige My Longest Lashes review and you will see ALL the details about my DIY lightbox, ok? :)

    maitreyi1978: You got it! I'll swatch Happi this week! :)

  13. I got Roxy and Yasmeen too during the sale but I haven't tried them yet. So many other pretty things to try first. =)

  14. JT: OMG, honey, when you get a chance, you HAVE to try Yasmeen. In full sunlight this color is freaking unbelievable. :)

  15. I've never tried anything from Zoya, but I keep seeing these swatches for Yasmeen which makes me think I need to start. I have NARS Purple Rain, but I'm thinking of returning it and getting Yasmeen instead...

  16. scarlettholly: Ooooh, I've heard such great things about NARS Purple Rain, but then again, Yasmeen is sooo pretty and multi-dimensional...I don't know! Let me know what you decide! lol. :)

  17. I adore Zoya polishes- some great colour choices. Love the look of Happi!

  18. Those are great colors. Where do you guy Zoya products?

  19. BJL: I had a feeling you'd probably love Happi! :D xo

    Kimberly: If you're lucky enough to have a beauty supply in your area that carries Zoya, you can have yourself a field day! Unfortunately for me, I have to order online, and I always just order straight from If you're on twitter, follow them because they always announce GREAT sales. I'd definitely wait for the next one and then go crazy. :)

  20. aaaaggghhh lucky! i need to get all of these, i'm sure they'll look great on you!!
