My favorite was "Lotus"- I just love the dustiness she has. "Carly" was another surprise for me, the color I didn't know I NEEDED! It is really so much prettier in person than my pictures can depict. Love it, although it may seem out of place in a Summer collection.
My least favorite was "Shelby". She was a P.I.T.A. to apply and I did feel like she looked right on me.
Overall, these colors are fantastic and I love how well the applied (for the most part)!
In other news, Zoya has a new referral program called "Share The Love" that is kind of awesome. If you use my Zoya link here and create an account, we both get a coupon for a free polish! You start earning 'points' for referrals and other things-like for instance in the past, if Zoya reached a certain number of "likes" on Facebook, they automatically gave everyone with an account points. Then as your points grow, you can pick from several prizes they offer... everything from free shipping to bottles of polish or nail treatments to complete collections! Its a great way to get your hands on some Zoyas...I know, for me, sometimes it is difficult to find a brick and mortar salon that has them, so ordering directly from them is a lot easier!
So, what do you think of the pinks and purples? Which ones are your favorites??
