Look, I’m still posting things late, look at me go! But my birthday was on December 15 so now I’m one year older and wiser and will probably continue to post things late. It’s good to know one’s flaws.
I’m FINALLY posting about my Zoya Black Friday sale – all of these polishes are obviously still available, so if you see something that catches your eye, you can order it at any time off Zoya’s website.
Zoya has two big sales a year – their Black Friday sale and their Earth Day sale. I save buying from Zoya until these times, as they’re a little higher price. But when those sales come around, I allow myself to go a little nuts, since it’s only twice a year, and Zoya has really good formulas.
This year, their Black Friday sale was for 50% off – less than their 70% off extravaganza for last year, but still a great sale. I ended up picking up 10 polishes, mainly from their Fall collection, as well as a random few others that caught my eye.
They can be divided up into 3 categories: nudes, greens, and vampy colors. Apparently those were what I was itching for. So let’s get into the swatches!
I have a NOTD for you! I’m hoping to try to put more of these up. I’ve been slowly going through my collection and wearing nail polishes I haven’t tried out yet – making it a sort of challenge for myself really, wear only things I haven’t photographed or featured on the blog yet.
Today I have a polish from Zoya! This is ‘Alicia’ and it’s one of their scattered holographic finishes. This came out for Fall 2016 as part of their ‘Urban Grunge’ collection. I picked this up in their Black Friday sale and I can’t believe I hadn’t worn it yet.
This was 3 coats, and an absolutely lovely formula. It just glows on the nails in any light.
Continuing on with getting up old posts, I finally have my Zoya Earth Day haul! Yeah I know Earth Day was a while ago. I’m continuing with my phrase of “better late than never”. But hey, once I get through all of these posts, I can starting posting summer collections, which everyone is always excited about!
Anyways, Zoya ran a 50% off sale for Earth Day – if you bought polishes, you could also send in old polishes and Zoya would recycle them safely for you. This inspired me to clean out my collection, and I sent them a couple bags worth of old polishes! So you know, I made room for these new polishes.
Apparently in my order I had an inkling towards certain colors – aka blues and greens. Didn’t even realize until I started unpacking them. Whoops.
I’m going to preface this post by saying, I don’t have all of the polishes for this collection. YET.* (I do now) So here’s the story.
I ordered this collection, along with a few other polishes in Zoya’s Black Friday sale. It shipped, it was delivered, I pulled the package out of the box, and… one of the polishes was smashed inside the package. Polish everywhere. I promptly cleaned it up, getting blue everywhere, and got right onto emailing customer service. Luckily they were so lovely, and immediately sent out another bottle of Waverly. I should have that by Friday, so I’ll be sure to update the post, and label it with Full collection when I truly have all 6.
*UPDATE! I have them all now. Right away I emailed Zoya’s customer service. They were very lovely, and shipped out a replacement polish, and I got it within the week! I was very satisfied. So I have the full collection.
In this collection there are 6 polishes, 2 duochromes, and 4 of Zoya’s ‘Pixiedust’ formula – aka textured polishes. I’ll start with the duochromes.
