Above & Below: Zoya Helen, a mid-tone beige that coordinates nicely with my band-aid.
Above & Below: Zoya Yummy, a vivid sky blue. My favorite coffee cup was sitting on my desk and it just happened to match my polish! It's from my favorite spot in the world about 3 hours north of us, a little town called Irons, Michigan. It has the most beautiful bright blue glacier-formed lakes, and is located between Traverse City and Manistee, MI. The wildlife is abundant, the fishing is great, and the pine forests are amazing. Very relaxing and beautiful.

Casual Lavish held a contest on Earth Day last month in partnership with Art of Beauty/Zoya, in which 25 winners were chosen to receive 4 Zoya polishes. I was happy to be one of the winners and even happier when my polishes arrived last week! I had never tried this brand before and after doing these quick swatches for you I think I'll definitely be adding to my Zoya collection. The handles and brushes seem small compared to a number of other brands, but it did not seem to cause any problems during the application. These all applied perfectly in just 2 coats and dried quickly. I was impressed with the coverage these gave me, the shine (pictures and with no top coat) and the ease of application. These are all cremes, so I'm hoping the other finishes are just as nice. I'd love to hear any recommendations you may have for other Zoya colors. Thanks Casual Lavish and Zoya for this wonderful addition to my collection! If you haven't already done so, please take a minute to vote in the poll in the upper right hand corner. In closing, I'd like to wish one of my favorite bloggers, Brooke, a Happy Birthday!
