Zoya Easy Neons Swatches & Review!


*Sent for review*
 
I was so excited when Zoya first announced their Easy Neons collection. I can never get enough neons. They are my go to polishes in the summer and I always prefer neons that do not require a white polish underneath. The Zoya Easy Neons don't disappoint. All of my swatches are 2-3 coats with no white base. Some of these are a little like neon jellies, with a bit of VNL, but I love the shiny jelly-like look with these! All swatches have one layer of top coat for shine. Like most neons, these dry to a semi-matte finish.


Being a longtime Zelda nerd, I loved the name of Zoya Link even before trying the polish. Luckily, the polish loved up to it's great namesake and is a eye-catching neon grass green. This green is really amazing, it's like a fresh spring green but in your face NEON. I have a lot of neon greens, but Link may take the new favorite spot.


I used three thin coats here. Link was easy to apply and not streaky at all. The consistency was jelly-like and the new Z-Wide brush made for great control during application.
 



Zoya Echo is a bright sea blue, almost like my old favorite Crayola color "cerulean". Echo almost perfectly matches the blue on my stand up paddle board, so you can bet I'll be wearing it on my toes a bunch this summer. Definitely a gorgeous, saturated color, and a must for any blue polish fan (like myself!).


This was just two coats. Still a bit of VNL, but I like it with these. It somehow makes them look brighter and more summery. The formula was great again, very easy to apply. Neons are notoriously tricky to work with, so I am pretty pleased overall with the formula of this collection (with one exception).




Zoya Banks is an amazing bright neon orchid purple with pink undertones. This color is so great and super unique. I have been looking for a polish this color for awhile and could not find one. It's a great combination of purple and pink and super bright.


Unfortunately, Banks is the exception to the great formulas in this collection. It was thicker than the others and sort of... gooey? I could not for the life of me get this to be streak-free. You can see the unevenness pretty clearly.  This was three coats and it still had quite a bit of sheerness to it. I will still be wearing this polish because it's a smashing color, but wish the formula was up to par.




Zoya Janie is a retina-searing bright fuchsia neon and one of my favorites in this collection. This is one BOLD pink! I wore this recently while away at a dance competition and got a ton of compliments. This is a little more of a blue-pink in person, it's so bright it was difficult to photograph. You can see the cooler undertone of this one better if you compare it with the next polish below. I have a ton of neon pinks, but I really like the juicy look of these in comparison with other neons that have more of a chalky look.


I was super happy to find that this beauty has a fantastic formula in addition to being a stunning color. This was just two coats, very even, and hardly any VNL. Super easy to apply and I will be wearing this one again and again! 




Zoya Zelda (😍) is the warmer of the two pinks and my favorite polish in the collection. Zelda is a glowing hot coral pink, the best balance of pink and orange. Coral is pretty much the greatest in the summer, no? And neon coral pink is just so happy looking. LOVE!

Zelda's formula has a lot to love as well. Two coats, nicely even and streak-free, and super easy to apply with that nice wide brush. I didn't even do any clean up here. Pretty much the perfect summer polish all around!




Zoya Oakley is a bright orange neon with some yellow undertones. It's bright and happy and maybe a little nacho cheesy. But in a good way!


This is also two coats of Oakley and it had the same great formula as Janie and Zelda. I am definitely excited to find some neons that are easy to apply in a hurry and don't take the patience of a saint!




I may be biased, since I am almost always a big fan of neon polish, but I love this collection! My absolute favorites are Zelda and Janie, but I don't want to give up any of the other ones either. The Zoya Easy Neon collection is available now at Zoya.com!

Zoya Naked Manicure Rescue + Repair Kit Review

*Sent for review*

Oh my word, an actual post on this blog 😲. Sorry for the total radio silence here, but I got a side job over the winter and it was a rough schedule. I am back and have several posts in the pipeline, starting off with this review of the Zoya Naked Manicure Rescue + Repair Kit. This is a great set for any manicure enthusiast and would make an excellent gift. The set comes in a nice quality pink zippered pouch and contains Zoya Gelie-Cure Rescue Serum, Genie-Cure Repair Base, a double-ended wooden cuticle pusher, and a file with different grit options. The pink bag is a really nice one, I plan to use it for my nail supplies while traveling (so happy traveling is a thing again!).


There are instructions included on how to prep your nails for the treatment using the file and cuticle pusher. After nails are prepped, you apply a small amount of the Rescue Serum to each nail and then a layer of the Repair Base. You don't wipe or wash off the serum before applying the base. In the drier months, I usually oil my nails before base coat, so this is sort of a similar concept.


I began using this kit in the dead of winter while working two jobs, both of which required me to use a lot of disinfecting products and hand sanitizer. My nails were not in great shape and my thumb nails were both peeling a lot (see below).


The next picture is the same nail after using the Rescue + Repair kit. Instantly about a million times better. I used this set so many times in the winter when I didn't have enough time to actually do a whole manicure but couldn't stand my bare nails anymore. It immediately makes my nails look healthy and shiny. It also seemed to prevent breakage and keep my nails feeling stronger and less dry.



I don't really have true before and after pictures for you with this set, due to the crazy schedule I was living. But I can honestly say that I used this set over and over again this winter. I am pretty sure I wore the repair base and rescue serum more than regular polish! Based on my experience, I can definitely recommend the Zoya Naked Manicure Rescue + Repair Kit if you want to instantly improve the appearance of your nails, as well as improve them in the long run. I will be giving some of these out as gifts to my friends who love manis, they are a great little set!

The Zoya Naked Manicure Rescue + Repair Kit is available now on Zoya.com
