Hey guys, more internet problems have kept me from being able to post. I promise I will be back on a regular schedule. I don’t want to be blogging less, I’ve just kept running into problems! I’m sorry. More posts and new polishes are in my future.
Tanzy is a polish that has been sitting in my untried drawer for…a year and I finally got around to wearing it.
Golden orange foil
Tanzy is a golden orange foil. It definitely reads orange overall, but the gold in the polish adds depth and another layer of color. It reminds me of summer sunset. It has a relaxing summer feeling to it. It’ll look great with a tan.
Easy, smooth application
I always like the application of foils. They apply smooth and evenly. They are quite forgiving when you don’t do the best job applying. And they dry quickly. Zoya foils are always a breeze to apply. I used three coats for maximum sparkle and full coverage.

Do you own Tanzy? Do you like this polish? Is orange a go to summer color for you? Do you find foils as easy as I do to apply?
Happy Thanksgiving, all! I hope you have eaten enough food for a small army already today or will be shortly. I’m starving and can’t wait to get my mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cornbread on.
I picked this polish to wear for the holiday because it really evokes a sense of warmth and comfort. The name couldn’t be more fitting for this golden-y, bronze, foil-y beauty.
Warm, shimmery, metallic goodness
Warm & Fozzie is absolutely beautiful. There are so many colors in this polish, but they all work together in a great way. It’s a foil-y, mostly overall metallic, polish that is full of gold, bronze, and even some sparse red particles that make this polish look so warm, cozy, and inviting. There is also somewhat of a green tinge that comes out in certain lighting. What is also so nice about this polish is that it translates perfectly from the bottle to the nail; no color or sparkle gets left behind.
The application and formula on this polish was great, I had no issues. Sometimes with foils they need three coats to really bring the luminosity and depth, but I only used two thick coats and everything looks wonderful. Though with a lot of foils, the wear-time hasn’t been ideal for such a pretty polish that I can’t stop admiring!

So, is this a top pick of yours for the Muppets collection? Have you picked it up already or are you planning to? Does this polish remind you of OPI DS Glow just a bit?
Sorry I’ve been away for a few days. I feel like recently I haven’t had time or left over energy for much of anything. It’s like as the days are getting shorter, so is my time. It’s stressing me out.
I bet a lot of you have seen swatches (or have worn) this gorgeous polish from Zoya’s fall 2011 collection. Look at it in the bottle, it’s gorgeous. But it did end up falling a bit flat in the wrong lighting…
Red based purple, with glass fleck gold and pink
Jem is pretty unique. This polish is a red based purple, with gold and I think hints of pink glass fleck. As mentioned, in the bottle it’s really very beautiful, as well as when it’s in direct sunlight. It’s gorgeous, almost mesmerizing. However, I did really notice that when indoors or in overcast (like this rainy day photo) it’s actually somewhat…underwhelming. It definitely loses its luster, and falls flat. I wish the sparkle stood out more.
The application and formula on this polish was good. I used two coats (though maybe three would have helped my sparkle issues?) and it applied evenly and saturated. It also dried quickly. I did though, have chips on the first day. Never cool, and it’s the story of my nail polish life.

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all gotten a good start to the weekend so far. I’ve been doing some much needed spring cleaning. I finally got to relax and paint my fingers and toes. I’ve been looking forward to this little gem from the Zoya Sunshine Collection, it was practically what induced my order a few weeks ago!
Tanzy is a bright, golden orange packed full of gold glitter. It’s a little lighter than orange, actually… more like a tangerine. This was the one that stole my heart from the bottle.
When I applied it, it seemed a lot more golden on me than I had expected, but it still looks very orange in the pictures. I only did 2 coats, but I can definitely see doing 3 if you really want Tanzy to pack a punch.
When you look at it head on, it’s all orange and gold. If you’re me, it’s more gold than orange. Pretty much just as you see it in the bottle. My favorite part of this polish though is when you see it in the shade or look at it from the side, it flashes coral! Such a pretty coral too, I just love it. This polish is absolutely perfect for summer. I can’t even imagine how good it’s going to look when we all start working on our tans.
from the side
I tried to get a shot of the coral tones of Tanzy, but unfortunately just could not get it to come through in photos. This applied really nicely, it wasn’t too sheer on the first coat although it is rather light. No problems with it at all. I’ll have to get back to you guys on the wear and removal of this, I’m not sure how much of a problem all the wonderful glitter may pose. I say if you’re ordering summer polishes from Zoya, definitely put this on your list. One more pic before I go!
