Zoya Wishes - Winter 2014

Press Sample


As I sit here during what feels like the coldest winter known to man, I thought this would be the perfect time to show you the Wishes collection from Zoya.

The perfect collection, here in the middle of winter. This collection consists of six polishes.  There are three Magical PixieDust polishes, a cream, a liquid metal, and a metallic.

I had no issues with application for five out of the six.  The Magical PixieDust in Imogen gave me a tiny bit of trouble but that was only because it was thinner than I was expecting.  With all of the deals that have been going on over at Zoya maybe some of these will make their way into your cart!

I am going to provide you with Zoya's color description right from the site.  All swatches are topped with Glossy Glam with the exception of the Magical PixieDusts as those are textured polishes and are to be worn without topcoat.  Unless of course, texture isn't your thing.  If that's the case, load up on the topcoat and smooth it out.  Personally, I love textured polishes.


First up is Willa.  According to Zoya this is a "full-coverage, densely pigmented, onyx black cream".  Pretty basic but it is very nice.  Two easy coats here.  I actually felt that this was slightly on the jelly side.  If you have this one and tried it out please let me know what you think.




This one may be my favorite, this is Haven.  A "true holiday plum liquid metal".   To me this is a very deep jewel toned amethyst color.  It is so deep and rich.  A favorite of mine for sure.  Two coats topped with Glossy Glam here.  




Here we have Prim.  A "velvet blue metallic".  Now don't confuse velvet in the description to mean that it is matte or anything close to it. This one is so meh to me.  It's streaky and just not the best, but that's just my opinion. I liked it but didn't LOVE it. What you see here is two coats topped with Glossy Glam.  




Here we go with the Magical PixieDust section.  Let's just say that these are not my most favorite formula.  They all dried like a jelly.  I waited ample time in between coats for them to dry and it still looked like a jelly.  Had the formula been on point these would have been outstanding.  

This is Thea, a "deep amethyst Magical PixieDust with an orchid flash, packed full of party ready holographic hex glitter".  Yes, it is amethyst and full of holographic glitter.  Not so sure about ready to party.  I only had to use two coats here!




Cue the sad trombone for this one.  This one is Imogen, a "black crystal Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter".  This is the one that really gave me a hard time.  If you look at my middle finger you will see how patchy this got on me.  I did two coats and after I got done with pics and uploaded them I saw how bad it was. Yes, I could have redone them and made them look better. But that wouldn't be fair.  This is how it came out and this is what I am showing you.  




The final polish is Nori, a "sapphire blue magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter.  I learned my lesson after Imogen and did three coats.  This one really is a stunner.  Jelly finish aside, it is honestly a really pretty polish.





Those are my polishes from the Wishes collection.  The two stand outs for me are Haven and Nori.  
Have you done any shopping with the sales and codes floating around?
I am thinking about doing the three free mini sale that is going on. I am curious about the mystery polishes!

  3. Haven is such a gorgeous polish! A little bummed because I purchased Imogen a couple of days ago as part of their promo, hopefully I will find a way to wear it!

    Gorgeous swatches!
