Really *Really* Late to the Party: Zoya Pulse Collection

I have a two-fold apology for everyone. First, I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last update. I had to do a bit of traveling for that interview and my immune system held on just long enough so that I was mildly healthy for it. I started coughing up a storm the minute I walked out of the office. I’ve done nothing but watch Six Feet Under and X-Files for the past 2 days. Second, I’m sorry it’s taken so long for me to post the Pulse collection. I know everyone has seen it already but since Zoya is launching a promotion, I figured now would be a great time to play catch up. If you like this collection you can get it for free by entering the code PULSE at check out when you purchase the Zoya Color Lock System on, or you can enter VIBE for Vibe Fall Winter Collection, or FLOURISH for Flourish Holiday/Winter Collection.

Overall, this collection isn’t for me but I can definitely see why everyone else went ga-ga over it. It’s shimmery goodness, so if you’re into shimmer – this collection is for you.

Zoya Mikka is a deep frosty plum, almost borderline metallic. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat.

Zoya Rihanna is aubergine with magenta shimmer. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat.

Zoya Sloane is dark plum with purple shimmer. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat.

Zoya Blair is a vivid burgundy with red shimmer. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat.

Zoya Colbie is brick red with red shimmer. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat.

And finally, Zoya Jacy which is a reddish medium violet with somewhat subtle purple and magenta shimmer. This is 3 coats with 1 coat of Zoya Armor as a top coat. This color is probably my favorite from this collection.


Disclosure: This collection was sent to me for review by Zoya.

    Hello dear Stephanie,

    I hope you will get better very soon. Please take care of you !
    Btw I’ve always thought it was very kind and professionnal to just swatch all these polishes, even though you don’t really like some of them (as today’s collection). Just for the sake of your dear readers. I guess many would join me into thanking you a lot for such a nice behavior ^^
    And… well, you don’t like them, but I have to say, they look SO DAMN GORGEOUS on you O_o I just love it ! your hands are damn pretty and I hope your boyfriend do realize how lucky he is !

    Once again, please take care ^^

    I think I prefer Pulse.

    Never say you are late to the party. Right now you are the only polish blog I read, so I am depending on you, ;) And I really hope you feel better. Thanksgiving is no time to be sick.

  10. Alicia Says:

    Dangit, I meant to say I prefer vibe. *sigh*

  11. Sminkan Says:

    I love them all! I am so happy I got them! Unfortunately I haven’t used them much but I was thinking of them just the other day. But then I decided to go green instead for this manicure…

  12. Brooke Says:

    I love all these colors! But I’m a red fan :) As Kyosuke said THANK YOU! What you do takes alot of time, I honestly don’t know how you do it, but thanks! And I must admit that while I love to read and look at all nail related blogs I have yours at the top of my list to check out first – your my fave :)

  13. Amber Says:

    Stephanie; I decided to take your advice, and I went out and bought “time-less is more”. I LOVE IT!!!!
    Now that I (well, you) have found the perfect white, what about the perfect black? hehe. Oh, I adore you
