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.
Left to right: Zoya Nevaeh, Zoya Ana (2 coats plus top coat), Zoya Brittany (2 coats plus top coat), Zoya Nevaeh, with flash.
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!
For Pi Day I stamped over A England Whispering Waves using Hehe plate Hehe-053 and Colour Alike “a Venus”. Only had time to do a couple of nails with the Pi-themed stamping plate…
Here is Whispering Waves on its own; two coats plus top coat.
Happy Pi Day!
Zoya Isa is a great blue-toned purple with blue-to-pink duochrome glass flecks. Zoya Aphrodite is a red jelly with pink-to-gold glass flecks. I used two coats of Isa and three of Aphrodite.

I added stamping on Aphrodite using LA Girl Millennium and an image from Pueen Fancy Lover 01.
Picture Polish Revenge and Nemesis are gorgeous glowy burgundy duochrome shimmer polishes, without and with scattered holo, respectively. I used Revenge as an accent nail on my ring finger. I did two coats of each polish, no top coat here.

I had better share this fall-themed manicure before the snow flies, which fortunately hasn’t happened yet here!
The base for this mani was Emily de Molly Copper Patina and Femme Fatale Infamous Riddle.
Copper Patina is a turquoise creme with pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used two coats plus top coat.
Infamous Riddle is an olive-leaning green jelly with strong red-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used three coats plus top coat for this one.
I really love both of these polishes!
I stamped fall leaves and trees on them using Kleancolor’s Metallic Orange, Metallic Mango, and Metallic Brown.
The plates used were Bundle Monster BM-04, Hehe 048, and Born Pretty BPL-015 for the tree.
So happy with how these turned out! Here are approximately a zillion more photos, heheh. 😉
Here’s a layering combo I did using Kleancolor Neon Pink and Starlight Polish Ever Blue, a glass-fleck topper that shifts from blue to pink. Two coats of the Kleancolor followed by one coat of Ever Blue and topcoat. With flash:

Zoya Mason is a gorgeous red-toned purple shimmer with red pigment sparks. I paired it with Colour Alike 547, which has a brown-plum base with holo and duochrome that shifts blue-purple-plum-fuchsia-orange. I used two coats plus top coat for each of these polishes.
