Zoya Cola

Zoya Cola was one of my 3 free picks from Zoya's promotion at the beginning of January. I got her yesterday, along with Tiffany and Kelly, which I will post for you later.

Zoya Cola Packaging material

I did hear a couple people say that they received bottles that had broken. I actually thought their packaging was really great, and in fact unique. Check out that weird gray packaging material that Zoya wrapped my polishes in. It's thick like a sheet of cotton or something, but actually looks really cool. They were then place in a bubble wrap lined envelope. I did notice a small tear in the outside of the envelope though. This leads me to believe that the few people who did have broken polishes had them at the fault of the shipping process and not Zoya.
She went right on my toes! I found the polish to be pretty great. There was no streakiness, it was a good consistency, and the brush was average. This was two coats using Seche Ridge Filling Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat.
My swatch swatch
I found the color to be pretty much what I expected, which I think it important in a polish that you almost have to buy online. The website swatch is a little more brilliant than it is in real life. In more lights that not, it does look darker, which is really normal with a very dark polish. I don't believe that it ever looks black though. There is a lot of brown to this color, especially just in the bottle, but it is overall a definite red. I really like it.

I had the urge to do a little pre-Valentine's Day nail art. What do you think? :D


  1. LOVE IT! I can't wait for my 6 colors to ship out! I can't remember what all colors I got b/c the paper I had them on disappeared, but I ordered Happi, Adina, Isla, America and 2 others.

  2. I love that gray stuff! I put it on the bottom of my <.< um >.> 4 or 5 boxes of nail polish it keeps them from slipping around AND if something bad should happen it would absorb it all.

  3. @Trailer I recognize all those color names and they're pretty. I need to find my perfect red from Zoya. They have so many to choose from!

    @Patricia I have tons haha, don't feel bad. Last I counted it was 90+. I still have 5 more Zoya on the way too! I'm glad you found another use for the fun gray stuff :P. I think Zoya would get a kick out of that. You should tell them!

  4. I haven't counted mine recently but if I had to give it a guess I would put mine over 100...and I have a few Zoya's coming to me from a friend of mine!

  5. I've got a few Zoyas on the way too! Stacy, Kelly, Deidra, Piper, and Soho Punch.

  6. Its very pretty,I got Delilah as one of my 3 free and it has subtle glitter in it and very pretty as my valentines toenail polish.I love how you decorated it with hearts.very cute

  7. It looks cuter in person as usual. I like it!
