Zoya Rose Palette Collection Swatches and Reviews

 *press samples*

Hi everyone! Can you believe it's almost Christmas? Bad news, I was inadvertently exposed to Covid, so for extreme caution, I will be spending the holidays alone while my husband visits family. I am so bummed. I will spend my days resting and watching Netflix, I suppose. I'm vaccinated and boosted, so at least there's that. Please be safe out there with Omicron raging out there. Tonight I have a quick post featuring the fall-inspired Rose Palette from Zoya. This 5-piece collection contains creams across a variety of rose tones. These are available now for $12 each, but always check for a sale first. 

Zoya Palmer (2 coats)

Palmer is the lightest shade, and is also the most pink. It's a medium dusty pink creme that dries a little darker on the nail than the bottle. I should mention that the whole collection only needed 2 coats for full opacity and they all applied easily. 

Zoya Marcia (2 coats)

Up next is Marcia, which is what I usual think of when someone mentions rose. Zoya refers to it as a French rose, whatever that means. It also has that nice dusty feeling to it. 

Zoya Maggie (2 coats)

Maggie for some reason looks completely different on the Zoya website compared to my swatches. It appears that other blogger's photos look like my photos, so I'm confident in what I'm showing. Zoya calls it a Persian red cream, but it looks more of a berry red with lots of purple undertones to my eye. 

Zoya Rochelle (2 coats)

Rochelle is where we start to see more vampy inspirations. It's a deep burgundy cream that is almost a 1-coater. This is such a classic shade. 

Zoya Suzie (2 coats)

Last, but not least we have Suzie which is a deep oxblood red cream that dries down a little more jell-like than the others. This can stain the skin on the sides of the nail, so be careful with your application. 

There you have it, folks. I'd say my favorites are Suzie and Marcia, but these are all classic shades. Nothing over-the-top, but that sells to most consumers. Zoya polishes retail for $12 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages. Keep an eye out for them in your local Ulta store if you want to see the bottles in person before you buy. They often have sales, so check their social media pages periodically.

Noodles Nail Polish New Years Polish: New Year Wishes Swatches and Review

*press sample*

Hi everyone! Yes, I'm back from my BTS concert and it was the best concert I've ever been to! There was excitement from the group and the audience that I've never experienced before. With all that has gone on in the world for the past few years, a weight was definitely lifted from my shoulders that night. I haven't been that happy in a really long time, and while I loved every minute of it, I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm a little sad it's over. Either way, I have pictures and little video clips to remind me of the good times. Tonight I've got the New Year's shade from Noodles Nail Polish which will be available this Friday, December 10th at 5 PM EST. In addition to this shade's release, there will also be PPU mystery grab bag trios available for $21 for 3 polishes. The potential shades available are: 

-Crazy Plant Lady
-You're Such A Gem
-All In A Days Lurk
-A Very Neat Monster
-Who Done It?
-Strut Your Stuff
-Adventure Is Up
-It's A Nice Day For A Covid Wedding
-Snorkel Zone
-Night Fury
-Lavender Lemonade
-Colors Of The Wind

Natalie mentioned that some polishes have just 1 bottle left while some she has many. This is a great deal for these, so if you missed out on some of them, definitely pick up a bag. Shall we check out the New Year's polish?

Noodles Nail Polish New Year Wishes (2 coats) ($10)

Let's take a moment to appreciate the color combination here. New Year Wishes is a sky blue crelly base with white/black/gold hexagonal glitters and a touch of gold shimmer. The gold and black against that blue is especially eye-catching. I have a crap load of polishes, but I don't think I have anything with this color combo. I went ahead and used 2 thicker coats for this one and it applied easily. It does dry with texture from the glitters, so I would recommend a glitter top coat followed by a quick-dry topcoat (or just 2 coats of a thicker topcoat).

There you have it, folks! If you plan on picking this one up, definitely check out the PPU mystery trio because it's such a great deal. Even if you get one that you already have, you can always sell it or give it to a friend.
