Zoya Delight, a fresh as Spring collection as delightful as its name

I have to say, even though our winter here in Missouri hasn’t been as bad as predicted, yet, I still count the days until spring. I can’t wait to see the crocus and the daffodils peeking out of the soil. And Zoya’s newest spring collection, Delight, reminds me of the first colors of spring. Blue Rayne, reminiscent of thick chunks of melting ice from a frozen waterfall, Daisy, that essential yellow that hearkens the latest days of a waning winter. Leslie, a lilac with turquoise flashes and Tiana, like the first virgin blades of new grass. Lillian is that kind of aquamarine that reminds me of shallow clear waters on the Florida Gulf coast beaches. And rosy pink Eden. Who could resist that fresh flower bursting forth on your nails? Let’s see what all the well-deserved fuss is about.

Eden just beckons with her name! One look at this pink stunner and you’ll be heading for your springtime clothing drawer. For some reason it reminds me of some Gladiolas I have blooming in my yard spring and summer.

Eden by Zoya can be best described as a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish. Super opaque, I used two coats. Color Family - Pink  Finish - Cream  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Rayne is one of those dreamy blues with all it’s flashes of light dancing off your nails.

Rayne by Zoya can be best described as a dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash. You HAVE to see this in person to appreciate the beautiful turquoise flash in a light room or sunshine. Even in the bottle it will take your breath away. Very hard to capture. I've included a photo of my nails in the sunshine and still couldn't capture the flash of colored lights. But you'll see them in person. This is on the thin side, and it will take 2-3 coats. I used two. Color Family - Blue  Finish - Metallic  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Here’s another shot of Rayne in the sun.

Here is Rayne in full sunlight. A bit easier to see that flash that is so extraordinary!

Next is cool Lillian. Super glossy!

Lillian by Zoya can be best described as a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish. Quite simply a perfect springtime light aquamarine. Do not confuse this with Zoya Blu. I held them up next to each other and they are very different. Two coats. Color Family - Blue  Finish - Cream  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Tiana just inspires me. Love this one to the moon and back!

Tiana by Zoya can be best described as a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish. My fave of the three cremes. It inspired me to add a dash of springlike whimsy! Color Family - Green  Finish - Cream  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Daisy has some amazing flashes of turquoise as well. I’m not a huge yellow polish collector but this is a keeper for sure.

Daisy by Zoya can be best described as a refreshing lemon merengue yellow metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash. I used two coats and it is the same formula as the other two shimmers. 2-3 coats. Color Family - Yellow  Finish - Metallic  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

And last is lovely Leslie. She reminds me of a tinted Easter egg! Actually now that I think about it, they all do!

Leslie by Zoya can be best described as a soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash. This one was on the more sheer side but not bad. I used two coats but I've heard some need three. It depends on your technique. Color Family - Purple  Finish - Metallic  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Wintery Fresh

Winters Fresh

I found a really fun nail art challenge today on Instagram. I’m in no way an expert in nail art…actually I’m a total noob. But it looked interesting and I needed an excuse to try a polish I purchased back in early Fall.

I can’t think of anything fresher than a Fresh mani using Revlon Parfumerie in Wintermint! By the way, I’ve found that Wintermint may be an unintended mildly textured lacquer. I’m totally fine with that and it smells awesome! I included a sprig of mint on my thumbnail and dots on my ring finger, compliments of Ncole by OPI in Candid Cameron.

Thanks to user @lalalovenailart, her Instagram post announcing a Californails January Nail Art Challenge (“The Totally Doable I Have A Life! Challenge”) LOL I love it! (By @californails). Tag @nailartjan.

For Jan. 03, Fresh is the subject. Challenges to follow will be on the 6th Sparkles, 9th Pattern, 11th Pastel Blue, 14th Nature, 16th Gradient, 19th Sweets, 22nd Studs, 25th Match OOTD, 28th Re-Creation, and the 31st Silver.

I’m not sure I can accomplish all of these. No, I will say I won’t even try, but I may manage a few more! It’s a great way to break into your untried bottles.
