As I discussed HERE, I was a lucky winner of the Zoya Blogger Collection. You can check that post for more details about the collection if you aren’t familiar with it. Today I want to show you the unboxing and swatches of the collection.

(click pictures to enlarge)

I think it’s so cool that the bottles have the bloggers name under the color that they inspired.

First up is Coraline. Coraline was inspired by a tangerine colored mood board created by the two lovely sisters of Eleventh Gorgeous. I love their youtube channels.

All three polishes are jellies so they are sheer. I wanted to show you how they build so I did one coat on my index finger, 2 coats on my middle finger, 3 coats on my ring finger and 4 coats on my pinky. So you can see They do build really nice and you are able to wear them sheer or more opaque depending on your preference.

3 coats on the left and 2 coats on the right.

Next up is Kate. Kate was inspired by a grapefruit colored mood board from The Small Things Blog. I’ve seen her hair tutorials all over Pinterest but I don’t follow her blog.

Again, I did one coat on my index finger, 2 coats on my middle finger, 3 coats on my ring finger and 4 coats on my pinky.

3 coats on the left and 2 coats on the right.

And finally we have Belle. Belle was inspired by a pink and copper colored mood board created by Capitol Hill Style. Belle is a bright pink with shimmery copper throughout.

One coat on my index finger, 2 coats on my middle finger, 3 coats on my ring finger and 4 coats on my pinky.

3 coats on the left and 2 coats on the right.

Next I wanted to show you how Belle looks layered over Coraline and Kate.

On the left is Kate + Belle, middle is Coraline + Belle and on the right is just 3 coats of Belle by itself.

Belle, Coraline + Belle, Kate + Belle

Then I decided to try some nail art using the collection. I started with 2 coats of Zoya Purity and added dots of Coraline and Kate in various sizes.

I then added a layer of Belle over top but it turned out super streaky over the white and did NOT look good at ALL!! I added another coat of Belle but then it still didn’t look that great and made t more opaque than I wanted. So I removed that and started over. I’m glad I took pictures before I added Belle because I do like how the dots look over Purity.

Next I started with 1 coat of Belle and added dots in Coraline and Kate and then added another coat of Belle over top. Creating a jelly sandwich of sorts…

I thought that turned out OK but I still wasn’t that thrilled with it. So I decided to start over again!

I applied 2 coats of Coraline on my thumb and ring finger and 2 coats of Kate on the rest of my fingers then used Belle on the tips of all of them.

I was pretty happy with that one so I called it a day!
