Nail Junkie | Zoya Earth Day Mini Haul


Geesh! I feel like it's been forever since I've done a nail post around here, but that sure doesn't mean I haven't been feeding my obsession over nail polish! I've tried to slow down a bit with my buying frenzy but it's incredibly hard to turn down good deals. Thanks to my nail obsessed partner in crime Tini over at Narcissistic Nails I learned a few weeks ago that Zoya was having a buy 3 get 3 sale on all polishes for Earth Day! I really couldn't pass up this deal, I adore Zoya! Honestly the only time I really shop with them is when they have sales, though definitely worth your bucks $8 a pop is a little steep for my budget to become a frequent buyer ^_^

Anywho, I finally got around to swatching these colors and wanted to share the six shades I picked out. I actually didn't realize how I picked two of almost the same colors until they arrived, oops lol! I did these swatches last night in a sleepy haze so they are a little bit messy and please excuse my horrible cuticles :-/ I'm working on finding a good cuticle oil because mine look horrid.

Bevin

A dusty, medium sage green with teal tones and a creamy opaque finish.
I really like the mildness of this shade.


Gretchen

Light milky brown with neutral pink tint and warm clay undertones with a smooth creme finish.
It's very earthy and makes the perfect nude.


Ali

An ultra bright neon pink. There's nothing I love more than an in your face, loud, obnoxious PINK!
And Ali definitely delivers, I really love this color and it's perfect for summer. 


Flowie

A light brown creme with peach overtones. 
This shade is really similar to Gretchen and almost a dupe although it has sort of a deeper tone.


Kylie #2

A brirght red-orange with coral overtones.
Unfortunately my camera doesn't really pick up the true essence of  the "coral" in this color.  


Wednesday

Sort of an ocean green with  turquoise undertones. For some reason I was thinking that this color would be a little more minty than it actually is but it's still really pretty. 


Welp, that's pretty much it until the next sale lol! Zoya actually has some type of Pinterest contest going on where they're allowing their fans to pin their favorite Zoya shades and I believe the top 3 pins will be chosen as a package in their next promotion, so definitely keep a lookout for that!

What are your favorite shades?
