Last spring, I did a 10 Things for Spring post. With the early days of spring upon us again, I decided to add a second installment (may I just say how exciting it is that this blog is old enough for once-annual series?) CONTINUE READING…
During the winter I essentially live in fuzzy socks morning and night. Needless to say, my foot care gets pretty lax. Warm weather means flip flop season, which means it’s time to start paying attention to the condition of my toes again! The older I get, the more I notice my feet are prone to dryness and calluses. No matter how many oils, lotions, and potions I slather on after showering (trust me, it’s a lot!), I’m still liable to get those extra hard, dry patches. Luckily, I’ve found a handful of products that help get my feet in presentable-condition without a lot of time or money. Exhibit A: the Zoya/Qtica Callus Action Quick Gel. CONTINUE READING…
Happy Monday, everyone! Just want to let you know that Zoya’s annual 3 free polish deal starts tomorrow. You pick out any three polishes (looks like PixieDusts are included) and get them for free, just pay a shipping/”processing” fee of $12. (I vaguely remember it being $5 when I first used this promo years ago, but hey, Zoya has grown a lot since then.) The promo runs until January 13 with promo code COLOR2014. Details here.
If you’re looking for ideas, here are my past Zoya reviews:
- Zoya Nail Lacquer in Noot
- Zoya PixieDust Nail Lacquer in Godiva
- Zoya Nail Lacquers – Ava, Melodie, Gia
- Zoya Fall 2013 & Winter 2013 Collection Swatches
- Light Pink & Nude Nail Polish Wheel (ft Zoya Amanda, Portia, Sabrina, Melodie, Ava)
If you use this promo, let me know which shades you pick out!
Today I present to you the nail lacquer that broke my years-long no-dark-polish streak. It began when a co-worker wore Essie Power Clutch. I instantly knew I wanted this color, but a cruelty-free version. So I turned to Zoya, the brand that has a greater array of shades than any I know. And they have what appears to be nearly an exact dupe: Zoya Noot ($8). CONTINUE READING…
After months of resisting, I’ve finally ventured into the realm of textured nail polish with Zoya PixieDust Nail Lacquer in Godiva ($9). The real draw for me was the sparkly champagne-beige color. I had my reservations about the texture (wouldn’t it bother me? catch on things?) But after three coats and over a week of wear, I have nothing but raves for this polish.
