Zoya Nail Polish Review - Stephanie

As I'm sure most of you girls did, I cashed in on Zoya's 5,000 follower giveaway. I think it was if they reached 5,000 followers on their Twitter page, that they would be giving away $18 credits, that's 3 free polishes, per order. All you had to pay was shipping. One of the colors I was dying to get was Stephanie. I'm really weird regarding color, I'll first go to something something deep and dark or really pale before I go with bright colors, Maybe its my inner emo kid or somethin, I dunno. But as soon as I saw swatches of Stephanie I had to have it.

Product: 4 out of 5!

Packaging: 5 out of 5!

Quality: 5 out of 5!

Price: $ 6.00 @ Art of Beauty

The Specs:

Tone: Cool
Finish: Cream
Color Family: Purples
Intensity: 2 (1= Very Shear to 5= Very Opaque)
Original Collection

The Good:

Zoya describes this as the palest purple pink cream. I'd agree with all that but the purple part. I think its more baby pink with a milky cream mix. Either way I love it. I know it says the sheer factor is about a 2 and that is what I was expecting, but honestly, with a good two coats, like in the pictures below, the color is great and a little opaque.

I'm super hard on my nails and so my polish is usually always smudging or chipping within a week. But what I found with Zoya is that they really stay a lot longer than a lot of the other nail polishes I use. They also have this color lock formula, that I'm sure will help make it last even more.

The Bad:

My only qualm with Zoya polishes and the only reason I gave the product a 4 out of 5, would be that in some of their formulas, like this one, they can go on a little thick and its a little hard to smooth onto your nails. Other than that I like everything about it. Some of their other formulas don't have that problem.


I love it, it definitely makes my hand look more delicate haha. Its been on my nails exactly a week now and just starting to chip, I think that's good for me! Its a gorgeous color and I think every girl should have it :)

I'm giving away a Stephanie polish in the contest so don't miss out on your chance to win.

  8. I got stephanie too! I haven't worn it out yet though, it's so sheer and takes at least 4 coats for me, and that gives me 4 chances to mess up! I keep messing up so I always end up taking it all off. >_> When I'm better at applying polish, I'll wear it all the time though. =D

  9. So pretty! Very girly and lovely. Mwah!
