Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Gems and Jewels Holiday 2011 collection

Who better to break in the holiday nail polish collections than my dear ole’ Zoya? This is one fantastic collection simply because it contains lots of stunning colors AND glitters. Yup.

Go ahead and get your dance on.


Izzy is a bright magenta that is just gorgeous. It has a bit of a foil-y finish and will make a fantastic pedi color.


Holly is a bright green metallic that rocks my world. I remember when there weren’t many emerald green polishes on the market and I’m glad to see another one.


Noel is a light denim blue. I can’t put my finger on any shades like it in my stash. I much prefer darker and richer blues but this one is okay.

Rina is opaque at 3 coats but I wanted to show you swatches of it at one so you can get an idea of how it looks on its own. Thank you for this one, Zoya! An emerald bar glitter? I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this.

Twila is another bar glitter with a bit of holographic shimmer in it. I used 3 coats for this one.

Kissy is like a party in a bottle. It is fantastic alone but really shines over Izzy. Izzy and Kissy. Hahahaa!

The corresponding colors and their glitters.

I really love this collection. I’ve never come across a Zoya polish whose consistency bugged me and these are no exceptions. I used 2 coats for each polish but did 3 coats for the glitter. I was glad to see that they gave me an opaque finish. It would have sucked something serious if these glitters were super sheer. This is one unique holiday collection and aside from it being a great little stocking stuffer, I think it’ll please nail polish lovers everywhere. You can get it online at Zoya.com for $8 a bottle or $48 for the whole set.

Must Haves:
-Holly: But only if you don’t already have a stunning emerald polish.
-Kissy: Nothing else like it exists. Well, not that I know of.
-Twila: Sheer blue beauty in a bottle.

I’m a colorful nail polish lover by nature. When I heard about Zoya’s Touch collection a mumbled “Meh…” passed through my lips. When I saw them in person, I was a slightly impressed. But when I tried them out on my nails, I was floored. Now I’m head over heels in love with these nude-y patooties.

Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Wonderful Fall 2010 collection

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

It’s not quite the holidays (although I was it was) but with a collection like this, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. Zoya’s Wonderful collection has stolen my heart. But then again, it would. It’s a collection of stunning dusty creams.

Oh yeah! Too bad my nails have been a hot and breakin’ mess. One of my middle fingers (such irony, uh?) has decided to just completely break off. It refuses to grow as long as its siblings. Such a meanie, uh? Yes, I just called my finger a meanie. 😉

Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Wicked collection

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
Well my darlings, Zoya does it again. I feel like I say that about EVERY collection that they come out with.  Don’t blame me though. When it comes to nail polish, Zoya is superior. Their Wicked collection is no different.

Watch this…

Edyta


Let’s rap about one of my favorites first…the green. Phenomenal! I don’t own a green like this and I absolutely love the richness of the green coupled with the silver glitter. 
Julieanne 


This kiddo is described as a byzantium purple sparkling metallic and I find it to be the best description. I find myself wearing this color for more than a week. That’s darn near a record in my nail polishing world. 
Kym


Kym is cool. I find it works great as a layering polish as it looks good sheer and with an opaque finish. 
Cheryl


Cheryl absolutely rocks and it’s a plum shame that I don’t have more pictures of it in action. With my growing love for brown polishes, the fact that this one is rich and full of shimmer, well…I’m just in love.

Carrie Ann


Score! I really want to say that I have a red like this but I don’t think that I do. Just gorgeous!
Karina


Karina….what can I say about you, darling? It looks like your siblings have really overshadowed you. While I like Karina, she just seems to be a bit subdued compared to the others in the collection. Not that she isn’t beautiful in her own right. It just seems like we’ve seen this before. 
Of course the polishes applied beautifully and I didn’t have any application problems. I think Edyta, Julieanne  and Cheryl are the absolute must haves if you don’t want to splurge on the entire collection.

Which ones are your favs?
