10 Zoyas I Currently Feel Strongly About

I have wanted to write a "Top 10" post about Zoyas for awhile, but I just can't do it.  I own 140 Zoyas and I love the vast majority, so my post would be "Top 140 Zoyas."  Instead, this post is 10 Zoyas I currently feel strongly about.  These are the ones I have planned to use in the very near future in simple manis and in conjunction with nail art.  They are out on my work station ready to be loved.  So here they are:

10.  Cinnamon from the 2015 Fall Flair Collection.  This brown is so beautiful.  I'm not a brown fan, but there's something about the warm glow in this one that gets me going.  (My Flair Collection review)

9. Desiree from the 2015 Fall Focus Collection.  I don't know what's going on with me.  Another brown?  But it's a pretty brown.  I'm excited about these browns.  They look great on my fair skin.  (My Focus Collection review)

8.  Isa from the 2015 Paradise Sun Collection.  This is a fun shade that I'm not giving up in Fall.  Plus, I love it matte.  (My Paradise Sun review)

7.  Janel from the Fall 2015 Focus Collection.  I love this warm toned red.  I plan on pairing this with Zoya Arianna on two accent nails.

6.  Oceane from the Summer 2015 Paradise Sun Collection.  I plan on using this for some pretty mermaid nails with Isa, using mermaid stencils in the very near future.

5. Lidia from the Fall 2015 Focus Collection.  I have many plans for this shade, including stamping a delicate image with Cosmo on an accent nail.   

4.  Cecilia from the Summer 2015 Island Fun Collection.  This shade is a stunner and I have severe regrets in not using it more than just this swatch.  Don't worry, Cecilia, I have plans for you soon.  (My Island Fun review)

3.  Nana from the Summer Island Fun Collection.  I know this came out in Summer, but I'm digging this berry shade for fall.  I plan on pairing this with a gold glitter accent.  Or, maybe even Tomoko? 
2.  Serenity another Island Fun winner.  I didn't get to use this enough.  I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with this, but I'm doing something.  Now that I'm looking at this, a gradient with Nana and Talia?  Yes.  That's exactly what I'm doing!

1.  Charli from the Fall 2015 Focus Collection.  I am going to wear this over and over.  This shade surprised me so much and is way outside my normal picks.  In the bottle, I did not like it.  On my nail, it makes me happy.  Which makes this my numero uno Zoya I currently feel strongly about.

What prompted me to make this blog post, after thinking about it for so long?  It's an incredibly long story but I'll give a Cliffs Notes version.  An indie brand, Mentality, peddled an incredibly damaging polish and handled the back lash less than favorably.  Now, a small group of people are left with damaged nails and a large group of people are left with nail polish they want to dispose of.  Which is a problem, because you shouldn't throw your polish in the trash can.  Zoya coincidentally came out with the #healthierishappier exchange after these events came to light.  You can purchase six to 24 shades from Zoya, use the code HAPPY at checkout, and you will receive 50% off and free shipping.  Then, when you receive your Zoya's, you can mail back your unwanted polish for safe disposal.  Isn't that awesome?  The offer is valid from now until 9/12/2015.

You can purchase Zoya and use the HAPPY code at and make sure you read the details about the #healthierishappier exchange here.

I'll be posting more looks using these above shades, including nail art over on my Instagram page, so make sure you are following me!






  1. I'm surprised how much I'm digging Charli too! Awesome post, thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks! I did not think I would like Charli until I actually used it!
