Zoya ~ Sunshine & Arebella



Zoya ~ Sunshine & Arebella
Navy blue texture with silver sparkle & Fuchsia texture with silver sparkle

Both Sunshine and Arabella have been on my wishlist for a while, so imagine how pleased I was to find them on vacation in Hungary, of all places! I bought them on the spot and today I am going to wear them both!

Application was really easy and the coverage is fantastic. Lovely! They are both one coaters. I applied two, both out of habit but also to see if it actually made a difference. If there was a difference it wasn’t big enough for me to be able to see it! Drying time is a little bit on the slow side.

Here’s what the pretty couple looks like.


I think “Sunshine” is a silly name for a navy blue, but it’s pretty nonetheless. Arabella seems to be impossible to photograph properly. Just trust me when I say that she’s much prettier in real life than these pictures suggest.


I dotted with the opposite colours. You can tell from the pictures that both polishes are really opaque – I’m impressed.


One last shot:


If I had been living in the US, I wouldn’t have bought Zoyas in Hungary, because they’re a little bit more expensive there. But I do have to factor in postage from the US - plus I need to convince someone to mule for me - so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for a score and some instant gratification. The BF liked them a lot too ;) Thumbs up for Zoya from little ol’ me <3
