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.

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.
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 :)
