Drew by Zoya is a pretty pink with a bit of a frosty shimmer to it. Almost old fashioned looking but I think very on trend at the same time. of course I had to have this one, because my son is Drew.

Drew, my handsome son. I have 2 nail polishes named Drew, this one and one from Julep, that is also pink, but much brighter and a cream finish.

This is one of my favorite polishes and I’ve used almost the whole bottle. I must say that getting to the end of the bottle the formula is really thick and goopy. To finish the bottle I will have to add some Restore to thin it out. This is the first time I’ve had a problem with a Zoya polish, usually their formula is smooth and easy to apply. I still give Drew from Zoya 5/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. It’s still a great polish and even with the thickening of the formula, not that bad to apply.

As most of you know, my Mom passed away last Saturday. Her service was today. It has been a long week and I’m glad it is over. She was cremated and there was no viewing. It was a packed house, with people standing in the back. People came from all over the world to honor my Mom, and I’m so grateful. She was more than worthy of the respect shown to her today.
I could go on and on about my Mom, but I won’t. She was a great Mother and we had a lot of fun growing up. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

This is Drew by Judi. (and Rick) πŸ™‚
This is my favorite son, so of course I had to buy this polish from Zoya. I was happy with the color, because no matter what color I was going to buy it. If they had one named Jilly I would buy that one as well.

Zoya is still giving away a free bottle of polish!. If you do not already have an account with Zoya, click on the link below, create an account and they will put in your account a coupon for a free bottle of polish.

Get Your FREE Zoya Polish Here

On the Zoya website, they have a note saying if you add 2 more bottles to your free bottle coupon you will get free shipping. So that is good. When I redeemed my points, they didn’t have this, so I had to pay $6.95 for shipping. I have since learned to check their Facebook page because they seem to offer ‘free shipping’ deals all the time. My last order was free shipping, I haven’t received it yet.
Right now they have a Mother’s Day Trio with free shipping.

Let me know what color you get!

Yesterday I received a surprise package in the mail, an early birthday present, 2 bottles of Zoya polish. I got a bottle of Lotus and a bottle of Drew. As you all know by now, my son’s name is Drew. I’m sure that is why she picked this color for me, and it is a very pretty rose color. The other bottle is Lotus. I have been lusting after Lotus since I first saw a swatch of it in a YT video back in February. This is from their Spring 2012 Tru Collection.

Lotus is a purple-gray-blue cream with copper shimmers. Yes, copper! So pretty, I love it. This is one coat. I can’t remember if I’ve ever been happy with a polish that went on in one coat. I’m usually finding bare spots, but this one went on smooth, covered well, and looks great with one coat. I’m waiting for the sun to come out so I can try to get a good picture of the copper shimmer, but for now I will enjoy this beautiful color!

    Update!

I hope you can see the copper shimmers in this gorgeous polish. It really is so pretty. This is another one that distracted me while driving as I want to look at it instead of the road! There is a problem I’m having with it, and since this is my first Zoya polish I’m not sure if it’s the polish or operator error. I told you it went on in one coat, but at the end of the day it still doesn’t seem to be dry. I did put on a top coat from OPI after about 3 hours, thinking that would help it dry. Because the thumb has come off completely and other skid marks, I am removing this. I’m not sure what I’ll put on next but I think I will wait to try the Zoya for when I have lots of time. Next time I will do my usual 2 thin coats with Seche Vite top coat.
Speaking of Seche Vite, now until the end of April, SV is on sale at Sally’s Beauty Supply for 4.99. . I almost bought a new one yesterday at the local beauty supply store for $10, so glad I waited.
