Zoya Earth Day Exchange 2013! Some swatches for ya!

This weekend is the annual Zoya Earth Day Polish Exchange, where you can trade in your old polishes for free Zoya polishes, plus shipping and handling(essentially $4 each).  I've participated in this in the past, and it's the best time of the year to stock up on Zoya.  They don't actually expect you to mail in the old polishes, but it's a great motivator to get you to clean out your polish drawer and donate the old bottles elsewhere.  I hear a lot of women's shelters will accept them, or you can leave them in your office bathroom for your coworkers.

This year's promo code is ZOYAEARTH2013, and you're welcome to use my referral link if you've never ordered from Zoya before.  It'll get you a free bottle!

I have a few swatches for you to enjoy... I randomly picked some bottles out of my Zoya drawer.  No topcoat in any of these pics, and that's because Zoya is so amazingly shiny on its own!

Zoya Anastasia is described on the website as a warm brown with strong purple tones with golden oxblood plum duochrome and heavy gold, gilded microglitter. Magical and versatile for sparkling fall beauty. Three coats shown here.

 Zoya Edyta is described on the website as a complex mixture of gold, olive, blue-green and smoky grey with a sparkling metallic finish.A dark shade balanced with sparkle for a dramatic look.  I only needed two coats for this because it was super pigmented.  Beware, there is staining upon removal.  It's worth it though! This is what I wish Hard Candy Crush On Tin looked like.

 Zoya Irene is described as a muted, mossy camouflage olive green accented by fine yellow-based green shimmer. An earthy way to wear the green nail trend. I love the shimmer of this, it almost looks duochromatic in some lights, shifting to a dark green shade.  This was slightly sheer and I used three coats for opacity.

 Zoya Meadow is described on the website as a soft medium pinkish peach with mauve undertones and warm frosty golden shimmer. Golden and flesh-toned, a sparkling nude for warm skin tones. I really like this soft pink with golden shimmer!  Very pretty.  Three coats shown here.

 Zoya Pasha is described on the website as a soft, pale, taupe-kissed beige nude with silver frost and the barest hint of silver microglitter. Very unique and fashionable- not a boring greige, nude by any means.  This is one of my first Zoyas ever, and I wore this for weeks on end.  Love it!  Two coats shown here.

 Zoya Shivon is described on the website as a dark rose gold with hints of purple and bronze and strong gold duochrome shimmer. This color flickers and changes with light and movement so you'll never be bored. Love the gold shimmer in this.  It's a less subdued version of Faye, but with a darker pink base.  Three coats shown here.

I really love Zoya because they're five free and the formula is always consistently stellar.  All the polishes swatched above had no streaking or pooling whatsoever.  They last forever on me as well, with very minimal chipping.  Are you planning on placing an order this weekend, and what colors will you be getting?
