Zoya Earth Day ~ 6 New Shades

Posted on: May 4, 2013

These are the polishes I picked up from the Zoya Earth Day Promotion. Now, the premise of the promotion is that for each bottle of Zoya polish you buy, you send Zoya back another polish (A non Zoya brand, btw) and they will dispose of this polish is an earth friendly manner. The promotion is: if you buy 6 bottles, at least of Zoya you will get them for half price. When all is said and done with shipping and handling charges I paid a little over $5 per bottle. Still, better than $8 per bottle, but not exactly half price either .
It’s more like 41% off, yes, I did the math. Also, as a side note Zoya made it perfectly clear this sale was not contingent upon you sending them back any bottles.
So here is what I purchased:

Micky, my favorite. Mickey is my Dad so this one will go in my little family o’ polish stash . Micky is a cream finish pink leaning a lot towards coral. I like this one the best because I like pink polish on me and I like how it will look more pink in some light and more coral in others. It does not pull orange whatsoever, which is “a deal for me”, so that makes me happy. 😊

Bobbi, a close second to being a favorite. Bobbi is a gorgeous bright pink with a silver ribbon frost running through out. The shimmer and frost transfers beautifully to the nail and it is a sparkler. Love it.

Carly, an oldy but a goodie. Like Bobbi, but with a purple base with a golden ribbon running throughout. So, so pretty.

Charla is another older polish. . I’ve had this before but gave it to someone and I really like it. I like the color and it sparkles in the sun like crazy. You know me, I’m not so much a glitter girl as a sparkle girl, and Charla is going to be perfect for this summer.

Jana, looks like she might be a cousin of my beloved CinC. This was 1 coat, went on very smooth as all Zoya polish does and the brush picks up just the right amount for a near perfect application. I’m happy to add Jana to my collection. I almost had a fit though, when I went to put these away, there was a bottle very close to Jana in color and I thought I’d doubled up, but it was Pasha. Whew! Crisis adverted. Maybe I might have a bit too much polish if I’m worried about doubling up? Hmmm… I may have to think on this!

Last, but not least Diana. You all know and love Diana from Dianasmakeupworld . I bought this polish in the hopes I could send it to her. I know Zoya is not available in the UK and a girl needs a polish named for her? Right? If there was a Judi, I’d want it. But as I’ve told you before the Royal Mail is really cracking down on the mailing of polish to and from the UK. So I’m not sure how, but someday I hope my friend gets this polish named for her. It is not just another red. It is a special red, a blue based with a hint of pink to it. I haven’t worn it but when I swatched it, honestly it took my breath away. It is a beautiful polish. If you are needing a red, Diana would not let you down, just like the person, Diana would not let you down and she is a very special “color” all her own. Now I’m getting sappy, it’s getting late. Betty is asleep at my feet, usually by this time she has given up on me and gone to bed, without me.

That’s it for my Zoya Earth Day haul -age. What did you guys get, if anything? I’d love to hear in the comments below what you ordered, and do you send them polish back to be destroyed? I’m curious if anyone ever does?

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning, Judi! Love the swatches and I might have to add Bobbi and Diana to my list! 🙂 I’m so glad you’re pleased with Jana; of all my Zoyas, it’s probably in my top 3. I love Pasha, too and I agree they are similar but not dupes. I have so many reds that I really didn’t think I needed another, but Diana is gorgeous! I,too am more of a sparkle girl which is why I “put up” with wearing Charla. I think she’s magical. For Earth Day, I got: Micky, Rocky, Rikki, Yana, Thandie, Hazel and Josie. Hope you and Betty have a wonderful weekend! ♥


Hi Judi,thanks for showing the swatches.I like Jana the best. I purchased: Bevin,Pasha,Neely,Heather,Miley and Minka. Some are more sheer than the swatch online. I have not returned polish, but it is in a box ready to go. I would love to see all of your Zoya polishes lined up.
Have a great day.


I keep meaning to ask you if you have tried Orly’s country club khaki? It is by far my favorite polish. I love the formula,wear and the color is so lovely. Would love a post on your favorites. Xoxox


I haven’t tried that one. I have very few Orly, I think 6, but I love the Rock on Red and Beach Cruiser is by far my favorite neon pink, both of those are from Orly. I will work on a favorites post, but pretty much all my polish is my favorite! Thanks Katherine, and I will look for that Orly next time I’m in Sally’s

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
