Ode To Zoya

Zoya, Zoya I love you so much.
You have made me forget about China Glaze and such.
You have really become my favourite
and I am sometimes desperate
to add every single one of your lacquers to my stash
but unfortunately I don't have enough cash.

I'm so glad that all your names are so simple and beautiful.
You don't use those silly dots that are just awful,
nor doesn't all your polishes have Suzi in their names
and you don't play those stupid name games.

pink shimmers: Reva, Kimber, Aria, Gilda, Tiffany; cremes: Blu, Natty, Reagan, Sooki, Wednesday
 I love your shimmers, yes I do
from green to purple, from red to blue
especially those pink ones are quite a crew.
Aria is my first one, Kimber is new
Reva, Gilda, Tiffany are all such a pretty view.

I have only few of your cremes, but I really want to have more
Sooki is my favourite red, Natty doesn't make me snoore
Reagan coveres so well
Blu is such a belle
and what can I say about that gorgeous Wednesday?
Well, at least it's definitely not grey.

Daul and Faye are certainly ones to own
just leave those other dupes alone.
There isn't anything more beautiful than those scattered holographics,
Blaze, Aurora and Payton are quite a mix.

Julie is one beautiful lady
Zuza is certainly worth your money.
Maria Luisa makes me so happy
Nidhi is like the most gorgeous poppy.
Charla is just plain awesome
and Channing is perfect for autumn. 

Let's not forget all those gorgeous PixieDusts either
they made my love for texture polishes grow larger.
I wish I had every single one of these
but that would probably make people say 'jeez'.

If I had to choose, Dream would be the one
it looks just perfect under the sun!
It's the most gorgeous blue that I have ever seen
you have to really see it to know what I mean.

If it isn't clear just yet
I'm trying to tell you that after Zoyas and I met,
there really hasn't been one that I would have liked more
and that I can even swore.

These were just some that are precious
I could have added more since they are all so delicious. 


Now tell me guys, which brand or polish would you write an ode to? :))


Disclosure: I have gotten some of the polishes featured here for review and some I have bought myself. For more information view my disclosure policy.

  5. Zoya too ! In fact I think that I'm beginning a collection :-)))
    Nevertheless in France they are difficult to find and somewhere else also moreover. And so expensive.
    But as we say in French "quand on aime, on ne compte pas" (when you love you don't count the cost) ...

    Amitiés,
    Claire

  6. Hahaa, tää on ihana postaus! :D Ja voin niin samaistua, Zoya on aivan ihana merkki.

  7. Oih, ihana oodi! Mulle kyllä Zoya on jostain syystä jäänyt vähän tuntemattomammaksi merkiksi, omistan vain muutaman pixie dustin...

    1. Kiitoksia! :)) Ne on vähän hankalampia hankkia kuin ehkä jotkut muut merkit, mutta täysin vaivan arvoisia kyllä! :)

  8. Hyviä lakkoja, joo, mutta mun oodissani ei kyllä annettaisi yhtään kehuvaa sanaa niiden nimille. Zoyan lakkojen nimet on musta ihan hirveä fail. Eivät ole rumia, mutta täydellisesti massaan hukkuvia ja toimimattomia. Ei kukaan kykene muistamaan viidestä kiljoonasta naisen nimestä, mikä lakka on mikäkin, kun ne eivät anna edes minkäänlaista vihjettä lakan sävystä. Olen omistanut kynsilakkaharrastukseni aikana ehkä kymmenkunta Zoyaa, enkä muista edes niiden nimiä, saati sitten muiden. o_O

    1. Se on kyllä jännä miten eri nimet toimii eri ihmisille. Multa löytyy jo useampi kymmen Zoyia ja muistan kyllä niiden kaikkien nimet. Kun joku säväyttää, niin se jää varmasi kyllä mieleen! Tietysti monilla merkeillä, esimerkiksi KBShimmerillä, on mieleenpainuvia ja hauskoja nimiä, joissa juurikin viitataan nimessä jo siihen sävyyn ja ne on silloin myös helppo muistaa. Lähinnä oon viime aikoina vetänyt kait herneen nenään OPIn käyttämistä nimistä, en voi sietää niitä kaiken maailman pisteitä ja muka hauskoja väännöksiä. Löytyy OPIltakin tottakai ihan hauskoja oivalluksia, mutta jostain syystä nyt lähiaikoina ne on menneet vaan typerimmiksi koko ajan. Ehkä myös siitä syystä Zoyan simppelit nimet ja täysin oma linja lakkojen nimeämisessä miellyttää! :)

  9. Ihana oodi ja oon kyllä niin samaa mieltä merkin ihanuudesta! Musta on mukavaa että Zoyalla on oma linjansa lakkojen nimissä, naisten nimet on hyvä valinta - odottelen vaan omaa nimeäni julkaistavaksi, mutta muhun vetoaa enemmän loppujen lopuksi OPI:n, ChG:n ja KBShimmerin nimeilyt.

    Tää oli kyllä niin hauska idea!! :) Itse voisin tehdä OPI:lle tai KBShimmerille, jos runosuoni alkaisi kukkimaan.. ;-D

    1. Kiitos paljon! :) KBShimmerien nimeilyistä tykkään myös, mutta OPIt on mun kohdalla menneet jo niin lujaa yli, että lähinnä vaan ärsyynnyn niistä nykyään... :D

      Siitä vaan runoa tulemaan! Jotenkin oisin voinu kyllä veikata, että nuo kaksi voisivat olla sulle sellasia, että niistä runoilisit! :))

  10. Ihana runoilu! :D Pitäis varmaan tosiaan alkaa koota sitä wishlistiä jo, tässä oli hyviä kanditaatteja siihen kyllä! :)

  13. Ah, I love your Ode! :D

    Zoya has so wonderful colours (but damn, the price ... ~12 Euro in Germany). I'm still waiting that they're making a polish with my name. I) (Tbh: no matter which colour it would be, I would buy it. Even for 12 Euro.)

    1. Thank you! :D They are really pricey here too and quite hard to get also, but I still love them some much. I bought Annie quite a long time ago and have kept it eventhough it isn't my favourite Zoya color.. The name really matters! :)
