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?

Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Sparkle 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.

Brace yourself, darlings. It’s part two of Zoya’s 2010 Spring collection. We played around with the creams of the Flash collection and now it’s time to sparkle!

Gilda

Gilda almost reminds me of darker version of China Glazes’ Strawberry Fields. I like Gilda a lot better though. It is crazy loud and super girly and pink and I love it!

Ivanka

How amazing is this green? I can’t get enough of it!

Charla

Charla is my absolute favorite of the bunch. Like…how can a polish sparkle and shine like this? Charla may very well be one of my favorite polishes EVER!

Mimi

Y’all know how I feel about purples and so of course there is nothing to NOT like about Mimi. It’s such a deep rich icy royal purple and I love it!

Nidhi and Alegra seemed to have disappeared from me during my move from one house to another. Or maybe one of my friends snagged them. Nidhi is pictured above as the stunning red and Alegra is a muted pink but still has the insane sparkle as its sisters.

What a fabulous collection, Zoya! I am so totally stoked, dude. The application is perfect and I used two coats for each polish. Despite the glitter in these babies, removal is super easy. Y’all aren’t gonna like me for it but I recommend hauling the entire collection. Yep. They are THAT gorgeous.

Whatcha think?

Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Flash 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.

Yay for more creams! This is the perfect Spring time collection…especially those new to nail polishes. Most of these polishes are dupe-able meaning you can find colors by Zoya and in other brands. The good news is that these are all stunning! The bad news is…I’m missing one. Dana arrived me to cracked and left her remnants all over her fellow sisters. No bueno.  But the other kids look hot!

Robyn

Now this is one blue that rocks my world. It was a wee bit streaky with initial application. A good two coats should set it straight. It almost reminds me of Zoya’s Yummy except it is a tad bit darker.

Perrie

Look! It’s Zoya Malia’s twin. Lavender purple creams are just delish, aren’t they?

Jolene

I am currently wearing this baby on my toes. It’s a little safe for me but it is streak-proof and perfect for Spring!

Maura

Maura is kind of like Zoya’s America. Which is another striking red; which of course is a total staple in every girl’s polish collection.

Jancyn 

Love it! It reminds me of an orange float. I want to lick my fingers every time I wear this color. It looks so tasty on my nails!

Great collection, Zoya! I do think that most of these colors have twins but if you are new to Zoya or don’t have any colors like this, get them! I used 2 coats for each and if you experience any streakiness, try applying a base coat before applying the colors. These babies are $7 each and you can get them here.

Which one is your favorite?
