A few older Zoya nudes

Here are a few Zoyas that I swatched recently!

Zoya Nevaeh, two coats.

I was curious how this compared to the base shade of a couple of the Zoya satins. Comparison: Zoya Nevaeh, Zoya Ana (2 coats), Zoya Brittany (2 coats), Zoya Nevaeh.

Zoya Clover, 3 coats. Some of the photos have top coat and some don’t. This yellow-beige toned off-white has a very subtle shimmer that only shows in bright light.

And finally, one that is a very old Zoya: Phyllis. I have no idea when this actually came out; I can’t find any info online. I bought this online from Nail Polish Canada probably about 5 years ago when it must have been already discontinued for some time. Well, it’s not so old that it has the really old original Zoya logo on the bottle, but that’s about all I can say…

Three coats of Phyllis shown here.

It’s a sheer peachy shimmer with a slight pink-to-gold duochrome… pretty!

    Aw, I always love so many of the discontinued Zoyas I come across! But the older Zoyas in general don’t get enough love, so thank you for your post- and comparisons, esp between Zoyas, are always appreciated! πŸ™‚

  2. WHAT, JO, WHAT IS GOING ON? πŸ™‚ This is seriously so weird, though – on, like, Friday just clear out of the blue I suddenly thought, “I miss Jo’s blog, I wish she’d start it up again.” BOOM, just like that. Many thanks. πŸ™‚

    • Hehe, freaky!! πŸ˜€

      I got out of the habit for so long, (even spent months without doing my nails at one point, partly because of a cat bite on a fingernail that I was letting grow out!) but finally have gotten back into it lately. I was looking through my camera card and there are tons of old manis on there that I never posted, feels like it’ll take forever to go through them all 😱 But I’m going to try to post at least on a semi-regular basis… more often than every 15 months at least haha!!

      This reminds me I need to go catch up on reading your blog πŸ™‚
