An Awesome Swap!

A few weeks ago, KarenD over at Frazzle and Aniploish contacted me and graciously extended an offer for me to pick out some Zoya's as part of the Zoya Nail Polish Exchange. This was amazing to me as the Zoya exchange isn't available unless you live in the US. Trade Secrets is the only retail that sells Zoya's in my area (that I know of). Even then, they are quite expensive and not every location gets in the new collections. I picked out mainly polishes from the new Summer 2011 Sunshine Collection and all three of the Mod-Mattes.

A swap was organized and the Zoya's arrived last night. While it was difficult to decide upon which pretty colour to try first, I ultimately decided upon Zoya Mitzi...not really a 'pretty' colour as it kinda looks like OPI Shrek's matte cousin...but chose it for no other reason than it would go nicely with the outfit I had planned on wearing today. Stamped using Konad White Special Polish, using fauxnad IP m74.

Decided to add a little glitter and stripes using a few different stripers. This is what it ended up looking like:

Zoya Mitzi, three coats before stamping.

I can't wait to try out a few more of these Zoya's. The colours look perfect for summer! Thanks so much again KarenD for the awesome swap! I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for looking!

Edit: I don't know if I'm the only one having problems, but I can't seem to log into blogger to leave comments on my blog or many of its not like I'm ignoring everyone, its just for some reason, it keeps saying I'm anonymous even though I'm signing in! If anyone knows how to fix this, I'd appreciate it as it sure is annoying!!!


  1. The glitter stripes 'make' this mani. Love it.

  2. You're welcome! Glad they survived the rigors of the postal systems. :) I just sprung the ones you sent from quarantine last night so hope to at least swatch some soon.

  3. KarenD: I can't wait to see your swatches and comparisons! I will try to get out your polishes soon before the possible postal strike but have no wheels as my cars in the shop ....:(

  4. NikkiCottonTail: I agree! I'm really liking the added sparkle or contrasting line the nail stripers add. Let's just say I may or may not have went out and bought about 18 more stripers yesterday for future mani's.....I just need to practise a bit more and remember sometimes that less is more!!

  5. Wow i just love this sweetie . i love how awesome the colours and stamping look with the liner magic :-)

    Its just incredible :-)

  6. What an awesome colour! :) I am your newest GFC, follower! I hope you will stop by and return the favor;) Have a great Sunday! xo
