Zoya ~ Blaze with Gosh ~ Holographic Hero


Zoya ~ Blaze 
Berry red with holo glitters

Blaze is from Zoya’s holiday collection 2012, “Ornate”. It’s a beautiful berry red with a pretty high concentration of holo micro glitter. I’ve been lemming this since I first laid my eyes on it, and was extremely happy to receive it in a swap!

The formula was fantastic – I love Zoya’s polishes. It took two very easy coats to get it opaque, and the drying time was pretty good. Not super fast, but pretty good. There’s two words we like to hear together, right? Pretty, and Good. J

I don’t have access to sunshine at the moment, it’s winter here up in Northern Europe, so all my pics are taken under a light bulb to show off the pretty holo in Blaze.

Here’s the polish alone. Two coats, no top coat:


The holo is so pretty, I really like this polish. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in the sunshine!



I was going to a Christmas party, so I wanted to add a little extra bling. But I didn’t want the bling to take over the show, if you know what I mean. So I pulled out my Gosh “Holographic Hero”, which I’m sure everybody has heard about by now. I stamped two different snow flakes that I found on Konad’s stamping plate M59.

I really like stamping with Holographic Hero. It is really pretty, also in low light, which is a good thing here.

One coat of Poshé top coat, and I was ready for the Christmas party:


Isn’t this just perfect for Christmas?


Here’s the bottle shot for you:
