Zoya Haul Part 1: Meet The Greens!

Hey loves! TGIF!!

What a weekend I have ahead of me. Finals are next week so I have to study big time for them this weekend. But I wont let that stop me from posting! Who says you can't multi-task?

As I may have mentioned in previous posts, I took advantage of the black Friday promotion that Zoya was having on their website. if you spend $20.00 or more on an order you get 6 free green (Zoya favorites) polishes! I purchased 3 nail polishes (I will show you all those swatches in a post coming up, so stay tuned) which retail for $7 each, so my order came out to be for $21.

I received my package in the mail this week and I took the liberty of swatching all the greens that were sent to me for free because of my $20 and over order. Unfortunately, I only recieved 5 of the 6 polishes. I received Irene, Suvi, Envy, Midori, and Veruschka. I was missing Tangy. But it's ok. I don't mind too much because I still got 5 free Zoya polishes! I might also add that I have never tried Zoya polishes and I was surely not disappointed!

Here are swatches of the 5 Zoya greens I received:

Midori is a beautiful light green color (not neon green) that is really flattering on my skin tone. I would imagine this would flatter all skin tones as well. This color has beautiful gold shimmer that really makes the color unique. I really like it. I applied 2 coats of this polish because it was very opaque. It leaves you with a metallic finish and application wise, I had no trouble applying this polish-no streaks, air bubbles-nada!

Irene is a frosty mossy green that contains little green shimmers. In the flash it looks a bit gold but it's really not. To be honest, this color was my least favorite of the bunch. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice color-but just not on me. Maybe this will look nicer on my toes. I applied 3 coats of this polish. I also want to mention that this color goes on really sheer at one coat and it went on a little streaky too, but you can't tell if you do more than 1 coat.

Suvi is a beautiful shimmery frosty green color that is sort of close to an emerald green. It went on really opaque at just 1 coat! But as usual I did 3 coats. Love this color!

I was most excited on trying out Envy because I have never gotten the chance to get into the creamy green phase. I really love this color! It's such a nice change from your usual creamy black. I applied 3 coats of this polish and it gave me no application problems. I love how it dries so creamy and glossy-even without a top coat! My only gripe with this color is that it can look black instead of the dark creamy green that it truly is.

Veruschka was another color that I was excited to try because it is my very first matte! I was worried about application with this one because I think that with mattes, you need to find what works. I found that applying thick coats worked best. Also, not letting them dry in between coats worked well too. It was so cool because they went on creamy and shiny, and a minute later they were drying matte! (forgive the air bubbles in the pic-my own fault not the polish) The polish applied really nicely and smooth. I applied 2 coats of this polish, as it is very opaque.

I couldn't help but to see how this baby looked with a top coat-so here is a pic of Veruschka with a top coat. As you can notice, a top coat really brings out the shimmery emerald green color of this polish.

Overall, I am happy I got these polishes! They are so much fun, and I have a gazillion varieties of green now to add to my growing nail polish collection!

Have any of you tried these colors? Let me know huns!
