Zoya Green! 5 Zoya green polishes swatches

Yesterday I received five of the six FREE Zoya polishes, as part of their Green Friday promotion. I am so excited about them! I can think of so many reason to wear green polish... Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Earth Day, and basically during any season - green is such a fun neutral.  

With my free greens, I also received the three polishes I ordered: Kiki, Katy, and Tallulah. I'll photograph those later this week.

Check out the pictures of my new Zoya greens. Which one is your favorite?

Zoya Midori
(Two photos because this one is AMAZING!)
This color is just stunning. It has subtle, shimmery gold microglitter that gives it a gorgeous gold glow, especially in the sunlight. Midori applied very smoothly and covered well with just two coats and dried FAST. I love this color!

Zoya Irene
I was really excited about Irene just by looking at the bottle. And as usual, Zoya did not disappoint. Like Midori, Irene has a gold sheen, especially in sunlight. Irene is a beautiful dark olive color, with some bronze hues. Irene applied fairly smooth, although I did get a few bubbles. It covered well with just two coats.

Zoya Suvi
Suvi is a lovely medium-dark green. If this was a crayon, I'd use it to color a pine tree. It applied smoothly and covered with with two coats.

Zoya Envy
Envy is a DARK green. It was a little thin, but covered well with two coats. This would be a great color to use as a base for Konad designs (in fact, I can't wait to try it!).

Zoya Veruschka
Veruschka was my surprise polish today! Veruschka is the first matte polish I've ever used -- and I love it! Veruschka applied really smoothly and dried to a glowing matte. It's a really deep, rich color. I just adore it.

And just for fun, here is a shot of Suvi topped with Essie Matte About You (on ring and pinkie fingers)

and Envy with Matte About You (on ring and pinkie fingers)

I totally agree gildedangel! But I love them all -- I'm so excited to use them for Konad desings.

Maiju - hope you love them all as much as I do!!

Shannon said...

Great swatches - thank you! Veruschka and Envy are two of my favorite colors for sure - beautiful!

Unknown said...

Thanks so much Shannon - glad you like them! I was hoping someone would like Envy. It's really dark, but I love how it's almost black but not. And I agreem Veruschka is gorgeous :)

Midori is AMAZING!!

Liz said...

hmmm... still not feeling the matte. I agreed with your comment about a shiny new car. : )

Unknown said...

Kate - I totally agree! I can't get enough of it. I just repainted my nails with Midori actually :)

Liz - yeah, it took a while for it to grow on me. I'm loving Verushcka though! Don't worry, I'm sure matte will be "out" before we know it ;)
