Zoya PixieDust Beatrix

All right, last swatch for tonight, and I'll be all caught up. This is Zoya PixieDust Beatrix from my untried stash, three coats, no top coat, outdoor natural light: https://www.instagram.com/p/BUVqU3IDRq0/?taken-by=eternaldecember Zoya describes Beatrix as a "tangerine metal sparkle," textured, matte, and foil twinkle. I'd say that's pretty spot-on. The sunny, yellow-leaning orange is so juicy and... Continue Reading →

Zoya Channing

I busted out an old favorite recently: Zoya Channing. I just had a huge hankering to wear it, which means something, since I own so many polishes that I gotta admit I've rarely worn the same polish more than once or twice. 🙂 Here's two coats in outdoor natural light, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat:...

Zoya Dhara & Zoya Oswin

Playing catch up on a couple Zoya PixieDust colors, both textured and shown here without top coat.

Zoya PixieDust Vespa

Quick swatch post: Zoya PixieDust Vespa - an older color and one of my favorites. 🙂 This is three coats, no top coat, in outdoor natural light. (It's a second-day photo, and I just realized that I'd already chipped the index nail a little. Oops.) Vespa is a textured, beautiful dusty, silvery, soft sage-y green.... Continue Reading →

Julep Waleska

This week's swatch is Julep Waleska, borrowed from my sister, since my own polishes are packed away for moving at the moment. 🙂 Waleska is from last August's Julep Maven Boho Glam box, which I may have chosen poorly in skipping, since it also had India, another color I regretted not picking up. I sure wish I... Continue Reading →

Face-off: Zoya Marion vs. Julep Phia

As promised, here it is - a comparison of Zoya Marion (index and ring), from June 2015's Zoya Mystery Trio Box, and Julep Phia (middle and pinky), from last June's It Girl Maven monthly box. This is two coats of each, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat, in direct natural light: Marion and Phia are very similar neutral... Continue Reading →
