Zoya Exchange

My polishes from the Zoya exchange arrived today. I didn't get a shipping notice, so it was a nice surprise when the admin brought the box to my office. I just *had* to take them out and make sure they were all there, and then they looked so pretty lined up on my desk that I couldn't resist snapping a couple of pics to share. (I don't have a lightbox at work, so these may look a little off compared to my usual photos.)

Zoya

Left to right: Perrie, Demi, Jacy, Venus, Rea, Hope.


As many purple Zoyas as I already have, I didn't have any of these. I'll be interested to swatch and see how similar these are to other purples in my collection. I know Demi and Jacy look almost like dupes themselves, but Jacy is an eensy bit darker and has a shimmer, so yes, I think I do need them both.

Zoya

Left to right: Charla, Ivanka, Mimi, Ki, Kotori.


All of these are new to me except Ki, which I do have and like very much, so this bottle will either get swapped or given away so someone else can enjoy its purpley green duochrome goodness.

I am trying to resist the temptation to do another exchange before the 2010 program ends on June 30th, but there are a few more Zoyas I've seen that I'd really like to have, and this is truly a one-in-one-out proposition so my stash won't be getting any bigger, so I'm thinking I might just do it.

  1. I'd love to see swatches of these. I was considering Venus and Perrie. I think I'll probably end up getting them later on though.
