Zoya Kelly

After all that bling, I needed something soothing and palate cleansing, so what could be better than Zoya Kelly from the Wicked & Wonderful collection? This dark, blue-grey creme is so chic and beautiful, I love it.

The formula is nice, although slightly on the runny side. It’s very pigmented, so I only needed two thin coats for full coverage. I really like the brush, it’s small, but not too small, and it fans out very easily and isn’t too stiff or too floppy.

Some of you might remember my franken Grace, which I thought would be a close dupe for Kelly. It turns out it’s not, Grace is lighter and more purple than Kelly. I found a closer dupe in China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, Kelly is just slightly more blue-leaning, while CC is straight-up grey.

I don’t have a lot of Zoyas, because I have this weird idea that I can’t “start” a brand unless I plan having a lot of polishes from them. I’ve resisted Zoya for the longest time, but I just can’t keep them out of my stash any more. Zoya has a lot of gorgeous colors, and they’ve shown time after time that they are real nail polish trendsetters (Charla and Faye, anyone?). So this weekend I made my first big Zoya order, I can’t wait for them to arrive!

What do you think of Zoya polishes?

  1. Kelly ser ju jättefin ut! *önskar i julklapp*

  2. I though I was the only one! I stayed away from Zoya and China Glaze because my polish collection is mostly OPI. I’m glad I got a few colors though! I’ll have to pick up Kelly for my roommate, since it’s her namesake. :)

  3. I have this color on now! I love it :)

  4. neglelakk=gøy

    Denne har jeg også, og den er superfin! Fikk min første sending med Zoya’er forrige uke, og jeg har falt pladask for dem. (Egentlig er jeg stoooor fan av CG, men..) Utrolig mange flotte farger oså. Hvor har du bestilt fra?

  5. Kelly är supersnygg!

  6. This kinda looks like OPI’s Suzy Skis in the Pyrenees (or something close to that title). Very nice.

  7. This looks so much better on you than it did on me!

    Love your thing about not being able to start on a new brand ;) lol

  8. This is THE perfect palette cleanser. Ahhh. :D I’m gonna need to rock some shades like this in a major way after Halloween…though I will probably slap glitter on them a day later, lol! :D Though I do love a soothing smooth beautiful cream after a glitter binge…one of my favorites is Zoya Caitlin but I think I need to add Kelly to my collection now too. It’s just right.

  9. Well what can I say? GET MORE ZOYAs! :D
