Zoya has released their Winter 2017 collection, Party Girls, consisting of twelve rich new shades. There are also seven new shades of lipstick.
Zoya are currently also running a code through Halloween (GLAMWITCH) that gives you the Glam Witch Set—Delaney, Aggie, Olivera, and Maggie Lipstick—with any purchase of $30 or more, plus free shipping. US and CA only (Canadian orders are subject to an international handling fee).
Zoya occasionally releases Mystery Trio nail polish sets, and I don’t often get a chance to pick them up since the Canadian shipping cost can be a bit high for my liking. However, back in April, Zoya ran one of their Earth Day Exchange and I was able to get some of their “fun size” mini lacquers at 3 for $10. Temperance, from their 2015 Summer Mystery Trio, was one of the options and I snapped it up.
Temperance (ZP8102R) is described by Zoya as a “cool medium gray with a pink shimmer”. This is pretty spot-on, except I find that the pink has a magenta tint to it, possibly because of the cool tone of the surrounding gray.
Zoya has released their Summer 2017 collection, Wanderlust, consisting of eight opaque cream and four (slightly less) opaque shimmer polishes.
Is Scout a reference to the classic American novel To Kill a Mockingbird? (The author, Harper Lee, passed away last spring.)
These are beautiful, bright summer shades, though I confess not many are unique enough to call to me, and the olive greens just don’t suit my skintone. I might go for Sonja, Journey, and Mandy. Scout might find its way into my collection just for the novelty of having a shimmery yellow-olive!
I posted three nail polish swatches on Monday in a 3 Spring Favorites post, and today I’m reviewing one of them.
Zahara (ZP838) is described by Zoya as a “brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect”. It’s from Zoya’s 2016 Petals collection, which included four shades with shimmery, glass flecked finishes. I love a glass fleck effect (some of China Glaze’s older ones are particularly stunning) so I bought three of the shades.
I describe Zahara as a gentle, translucent pinked peach with a mixture of pink and silver glass fleck shimmer. It is semi-opaque.

[Incidentally, Zahara is not the last of all Zoya’s polishes, alphabetically! There are not one, not two, but at least seven Zoya polishes that come after Zahara, though some are discontinued. Zoya’s Z polishes are: Zahara, Zanna, Zara, Ziv, Zoe, Zooey, Zsa Zsa, and Zuza. I’m waiting on Zelda and Zinnia… Seriously, how have they not done Zelda, yet? Or Zoya, for that matter? I guess the owner is a modest woman!]
