Zoya Chopping Block: Part 4


Hello my lil' gumdrops..Happy Friday!

Today is the 4th part of my 5 part series, re-swatching some old dusty's to see which ones will get sent off the the Zoya gods for an exchange. Bring on the defendants.


Defendant #7 and Defendant #8, from Lancome's Vernis Magnetic line "Miracle, and Dashing Divas "Liya's Lazy Lilac".


First up is the Diva...are we really surprised...such a diva!











Even though it looks thin, it applies nicely, this is 3 coats, but if I was being careful I could have done it with 2. This is a rich purple/pink creme. Really nice, why did I have this at the bottom of my stash bin?? I took a trip to NYC over 6 years ago (probably longer) , around the time that the Dashing Diva first opened, and had a pedicure done there.

Of course I didn't leave empty handed. I bought this polish and some nail decals (purple Gerber Daisies). After that, I used the polish once but really didn't like it...but now.....hhmmm....the jury is out on this one.

Next up defendant #8

"Miracle"











Well this one is pretty, it's a nice pink with silver shimmer, 3 coats. I don't know? It's not that I don't like the color, but I can live without it? Make sense?

It was a gift from a friend, so it does have sentimental value, but that was like 8 years ago...so the sentiment is dead and gone....right? UGGHH this one is hard...oh well the jury has finally come to a decision....

The Verdict..."Miracle" is guilty of making me yawn..." Liya's Lazy Lilac" can stay...I have a soft spot for cremes right now :)

Pin It!

Good choice, I was rooting for the lazy lilac as well. Sooooh purrrrty!

Rebecca said...

I would swap Miracle but keep Lazy Lilac, I think you can get a more interesting colour than Miracle from Zoya!

@rmcandlelight- Thank U

@ChaosButterfly- Thank U, the sentiment is so gone!

@Scandalous- This shade of purple is why i choose it, and definitely why I'm keeping it!

@Another Bottle of Polish- Yeah, when I put it on I knew it was a keeper. isn't it funny how a polish can change your mind with one application? :)

@Rebecca- Thanks, I agree!
