Zoya Wanderlust Summer 2017

In the summer, don't we all have wanderlust?! I am going on vacation SO soon I can't believe it! I hope you all have some kind of travel plans this summer, even if it is somewhere in your own hometown new to you.

If you're in the mood for vibrant, gorgeous polishes for the summer, let me tell you, this collection has you covered. It is a 12 piece collection with 4 "shimmering" polishes and 8 cremes.

Let me start with my absolute favorite of the 12!

Cora: Zoya called this a muted orange cream. Muted, my foot! This is such a vibrant, eye-catching color. Opaque in 2 perfect coats.


Esty: Yes, I have way too many pink Zoya. Do I love them all? Yes, yes I do. This beauty is a ONE coater.


Sonja: Zoya called this a "summery crimson" - I like that description. Perfect in two coats.


Sawyer: The perfect peaches and cream color for a tan! This is perfect in just two coats.


Arbor: I thought China Glaze's Metro Pollen-tin was my favorite ugly/pretty color, but Arbor has claimed that spot. I love this color!! What do you think? Two perfect coats are all you need.

PS: If you think this is the ugliest color I could show you...keep scrollin, sunshine.


Winnie: Yes, Winnie, Esty, and Byrdie (below) are very similar. Not the same, but similar. Winnie is a lovely Barbie pink (my description, not Zoya's) that is perfect in one coat.


Byrdie: My other favorite! I love this shade! It's neon but not. Excuse my unpolished thumb, too. That's how bloggers roll! This is ONE coat. P-e-r-f-e-c-t!


Lois: The last creme is a standard purple. Pretty, flawless formula. You might already have something similar. If not, the formula makes it totally worth it.


Now the "shimmering" polishes!

Journey: Shimmery means metallic to me...which means I don't really care for any of them, LOL. This is opaque in two coats. Go slow with your coats or you'll see some visible brush strokes.


Mandy: I swear Zoya did a super similar polish to this...can anyone think of it? Same thing as Journey - go slow!


River: This is a pretty mermaid blue shimmering polish. The shade really meshes well with the shimmering effect. This is also my boyfriend's last name, so I guess I like this one. :)


Scout: U-g-l-y, you ain't got no alibi, you're ugly, ya ya, you're ugly. See!? Is this the ugliest one or what?! This is a sheer polish that needs three coats for opacity. Do you like it? I kinda do!


There you have it!

My favorites are Arbor, Byrdie, and Cora. They all have great formulas, too, so you can't go wrong picking any of these beauties. Do you plan to snag any of them?

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!
