What I wouldn’t give to be somewhere with a warm ocean right now… And baby waves! Because I can’t remember the last time I went surfing.
Soon… Soon, I say, but until then, the Zoya Beach & Surf collection will just have to do.
Available now in stores and online, Beach and Surf are actually two different sub-collections of six full-size polishes each. Twelve shades total, all new for summer, for $8 each.
There are also two $48 kits available — one called the Beach Surf Collection Sampler, with Regan, Lara, Shelby, Arizona, Tracie and Wednesday; and the other called the Surf Collection Sampler, with Rory, Carly, Kimber, Myrta, Meg and Zuza.
I’ve been wearing Kimber on my toes for going on 10 days now, and it still looks pretty great! Very shiny, and I hardly see any chips (just a couple at the edges of a few toenails). Not bad at all. For the record, I’m also wearing it with a base and top coat.
Like all Zoya polishes, these are free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP (phthalates). Oh, and also camphor.
The Zoya Beach Collection: Surf’s Up!
The Zoya Surf Collection: Cowabunga, Dude!
PRICE: $8 per bottle, or $48 for one of two six-polish kits
AVAILABILITY: Available now in stores and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A+ (bangin’ colors, a fun theme and deluxe durability? A+)
Well hello, allergies. It’s that time of year again here in the Bay Area when all of the mammals are sneezing. Rain one day, followed by sun the next. A few times of that, and everything starts to bloom. I’ve been a sniffling, sneezing, ah-choo!-ing mess.
But I’m okay with that. It’s a tradeoff for such a beautiful landscape and blooming flowers everywhere.
I’m excited right now because I have a hair appointment later this afternoon, but as usual, I have no idea what I’m gonna do, which usually means a last-minute decision.
I know this much: I’m leaning against the pink streaks this time around. They were fun for a while but tough to maintain. I think I’ve maybe worked the urge to experiment out of my system (at least for now).
How are things in your neck of the woods? Happy hump day.
