Quick Zoya Haul Post!

I have desperately been trying not to buy Zoya polishes since I got back into my polishes 7 months ago.  Not because I have anything against them, but because they are expensive here in the UK. Plus I already buy OPI, China Glaze, Nubar, Orly, Misa, Barry M and Nails Inc, so I thought if I stayed away it would help keep my addiction slightly more under control, yeah right!   ;o)

Trouble was their colours are so pretty, I love the shimmery ones, then I saw Posh matte and it was love........  I tried to resist, I held out for around 5 months once I saw it, pretty good really.  But I caved last week, I just had to have it.

So many polishes I wanted have disappeared and I doubt I will be able to get them again, so I went on a spree trying to seek out all the polishes I had wanted for months. I would have been so upset if I missed out on Posh. So be prepared for some haul posts coming up, as I bought lots of China Glazes and OPI's too ;o)

Well, once I had ordered that one, I thought I may as well get more than I had my eye on......so, I ended up with seven!

 Lucy, Felicity, Zara, Midori, Irene, Tallulah and Posh (matte)

Here they are swatched,
I didn't swatch Lucy as it is just a sheer white and it would not show well on the false nail.


I love them all, the colours are all so pretty, delicate and feminine.  I don't know what they do differently to others, like China Glaze, but Zoya's are real girly, delicate shades, whereas China Glaze are kick-ass groovy colours.

Was it worth it?  YES!
Do I wish I had bought them before? YES!
Will I get more Zoya's?  HELL YEAH!

I will take proper photos for you as I wear them....

PS:  Hope you like the new banner!?

I love Zoya polishes. And the ones you picked are gorgeous!

ozlem: I had to get mine from ebay, but they were from trusted sellers I have dealt with so many times over the past 7 months, so I know they sell genuine stuff. The prices ranged from a good £5.99 to not so good £9.50!

Biba: thank you! they are just so lovely! I think I got a good mix, there are still a few I want though. Colbie is one I know I need ;o)

Felicity and Zara are lovely! And I love your "favourite Konads" tab- what a great idea

Laura: I think Zara is one of my favourites, so pretty. Thanks for the lovely comment, I added the Konad pic widget to help people see quickly some of the nicest designs on the blog ;o)

beauty: if you search for zoya on ebay UK, only two sellers come up anyway. One sells for 9.50 the other lists at 6.99. Did you find them cheaper then?
