Zoya Earth Day sale 2015: My reccomendations!

 Hey guys! This post is really picture and link heavy so I'll keep my intro short! Zoya  is doing it again to us, their yearly Earth Day polish sale/exchange! They offer all their polishes (except topcoats and treatments according to the fine print) for 50% OFF!! And free shipping! The idea is you send in your old/unused polishes to them and they will dispose of them responsibly. Let's be honest, most people don't do it but I did last year, you can read more about it Here!

I thought I would round up a little list of my favorite Zoyas (it's hard to narrow down!) to help some of you make a decision-they have so many shades it can be a little overwhelming! In the lower caption of each picture is a link taking you to the post that features that manicure!

Most of you know how much I love the Pixiedusts, they are being discontinued so I would grab up any you want because when they're gone, they're gone! They last forever on me and give a lot of dimension and fun to mani's!

(DISCLAIMER: Some of these polishes were provided by Zoya for past reviews, but MOST of them I have purchased myself! I still continue to purchase older ones for my collection!)


Beauty and the Beast nails with Zoya Chyna (it's mentioned several times here, haha.) Its perfect for Valentines and Christmas, or for any red lover!

Chita is another one I use a  TON!!

Zoya Chita

Taylor is hands down one of my favorite nudes! Its a one coater on me! Highly recommend!

Zoya Taylor

Here's a negative space mani I did with some of the Summer 2014 collection. It was heavy on blues and greens, so I loved them!

Zoya Rebel

Zoya also has a line of scattered holo polishes, and I can't recommend them enough! You need all of them! This is Storm (black) which I refer to "galaxy in a bottle" haha! There's also Blaze (red), Payton (maroon), Dream (blue) and Aurora (raspberry). You guys need them all. Trust me.

Zoya Storm

I also have not been shy about my love for the re-release of the Matte Velvets last year. They dry SO FREAKING FAST you can tape over them in 5 minutes. Seriously, if you think you don't have time for nails before you are leaving for something, you do! Matte Velvets for the Win!

Zoya Savita

Purity is a white base I reach for often. A good staple to have, the formula is about as good as you'll get for a white! I used all Pixiedusts for this pawprint mani.

Zoya Purity

More pixiedusts! haha! This was Olympic themed. The bottle is Tomoko, which is probably my fave, if  I had to pick one. Please don't make me!

Zoya Tomoko

Zoya Louise (pictured) is a really great staple brown for your collection. Its also the perfect "football" brown. :)

Zoya Louise
This is  a splatter mani I did with last years summer polishes. Raven is the bottle pictured, its a shimmery black. I love it! The formula is WAY better than Willa, a straight up black crème that was released this past winter, which makes me sad. I don't use it near as much as Raven. But I am going to give it another chance soon!

Zoya Raven

I used a whole ton of blues and greens for this fish scale mani. Pictured is Remy, from fall 2014. Its so opaque and shimmery! If you are a blue fanantic you NEED DIS.

Zoya Remy

Here was my Superbowl mani from this year. Pictured is Song, also a super opaque shimmery blue. Song is a ONE COATER but yall do NOT get it on your skin, it will stain. And use a basecoat. It's worth it though, I promise!

Zoya Song

Yep-Chyna again.

Zoya Chyna

Godiva is probably my second favorite Pixie dust ( I don't know why I didn't mention any of the magical pixies in this post, but I love them as well! They are a little chunkier which a lot of people don't love but they wear like IRON! Bar, Cosmo, Vega are my favs!)

Zoya Godiva

More matte luvvvvvvvv

Zoya Dovima
Chita again. yep. 

My favorite maroon polish across all brands I own is Toni! I've said it before, all Aggies need this polish. Need. 
Zoya Toni

Here's another one of the scattered holos I was talking about.  Dream. Get this one. :)

Zoya Dream

The whole Naturel2 collection that came out last fall is perfection! I only have about half of the fist set of Naturels, I wish I had them all too! Smooth and buttery. Perfect "work appropriate" colors or for any of us neutral lovers :)
Zoya Naturel2 shades

Zoya Sunshine is a really pretty almost one coater pixiedust. This mani lasted a full 7 days last summer when we were on vaca!

Zoya Sunshine

This trio isn't available anymore but I wanted to show it anyway (sorry!) MOST of the Zoya crèmes I have are just perfection, formula wise. The white base is Purity!

Zoya Peter Som Trio 2014
More pixiedust art!

Zoya Beatrix

Yep....Chyna again ! haha!

  1. Would you believe that Dhalia and Dhara are the only Pixie Dusts I don't have either?!??!?! CrayCray, Yo!

    Awesome list but it didn't help me one bit because I own practically all that you mentioned. But I didn't partake last year, so i need to make up for it this year.

    1. That is too funny! So you're saying you have Chyna..... lol. I don't have those bc I have a NOPI black one that's identical and already 2 orange Pixies I barely use....but I need to have a complete collection, yes? I'm not thrilled about the minimum requirement, though.
