Zoya Tawny

This is the gorgeous Zoya Tawny, two easy coats plus top coat. Last pic is under Ott Lite, the others are in full sun.

Zoya Valentina and Denise

My apologies for the lack of posts! I mostly post on Instagram these days. I’m @ariix_veganclaws if you’d like to check out my manis there. 🙂

Today I have entirely-too-many photos of a couple of beautiful discontinued Zoyas. Zoya Valentina is a gorgeous red with a pinkish tone and subtle duochrome shimmer that shifts to gold at an angle. I used two coats of Valentina here but the second was hardly needed. Zoya Denise is also a pinkish red, sometimes appearing more pink or more red (I used it in 3 coats on my toes and it seems more red, here in two coats seems more pink) with chunky golden fleck shimmer. She’s kind of like a pinkish-red sister to Anastasia, Pru, Ivy, if you’re familiar with those (also discontinued) Zoyas. Here they are in bright sunlight.

And here are some not-so-good photos in artificial light, they give a better idea of how Valentina looks most of the time (more metallic) as opposed to in bright sun.

My advice is if you see these available at some random nail supply that carries discontinued Zoyas, grab them! 🙂
