A couple of weeks ago I was surfing through some other beauty blogs and I saw a post for the Zoya Wishes collection. The post didn’t contain swatch photos or photos of the actual polishes, just stock images. However, as soon as I saw the collection I feel in love and knew I had to have it! I headed over to Zoya’s site and preceded to reload for ages until it was finally available to preorder. I received my package and here is an overview of what I got. I’ll be posting up swatches next Monday so make sure to come back for that!
While the pamphlets in the box were not the first thing that caught my eye they are going to be the first thing I talk about. As I’ve never ordered from Zoya before I’m going to have to go based on assumptions but I think I’m correct in saying that these come with free with any order. I received three different sets of pamphlets with my order the collection overview pamphlets (tall skinny), a collection overview pamphlet with nail swatch disks (small square), and the Fall Trend Guide (tall chubby). The Fall Trend Guide is actually a set of different nail art tutorials that you can actually view on Zoya’s site. I still thought it was pretty cool that they included it.
When you flip through the the collection overview pamphlets they have pictures of the bottles and of the polish for the different lines for that season. However, what I thought was most interesting about these pamphlets was that the middle opens up to show you a color chart of some of Zoya’s polishes. For those who aren’t as familiar with Zoya this is a great way to not only see what they have but to also keep track of your collection. I received a pamphlet for the Spring and Fall of 2014.
I thought these pamphlets that contained nail disks were super cool. I think it’s cool to be able to hold these over your nails and see how they would look with the polishes. This actually came in very helpful as I really wanted one of the nail polishes from one set and never would have purchased a polish from the second set. Using these I realized that the polish from the first set actually wasn’t very flattering for my skin tone but that one of the polishes from the second set actually looked gorgeous with my skin tone. In this style of pamphlets I received ones for the Entice and Ignite Collection and the Natural Deux Collection.
The next item that I received was a 2 oz. bottle of the Zoya 3-in-1 Polish Remover. I received this for spending at least $30. I’ve been wanting to try this so I was excited to see that I was receiving this. This retails for $4.60 when purchased from the site.
The next item that I received was a random sampler of polishes. I received this for spending at least $50. When saw this I was expecting a couple of mini’s to try and was pretty excited. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be FULL-SIZE bottles of nail polish. That’s right, for spending $50 I received $30 worth of free polish!! These are the three polishes that I received.
This is no longer listed on Zoya’s site so I can not give you a company description of the polish
Fascinating brown-based wine purple with fine metallic mauve shimmer.An earthy wine that compliments fall fashions.
Muted medium flesh-tone pink with subtle silver metallic shimmer.A soft color for a natural look with a hint of sparkle.
Now for what I actually ordered, the Zoya Wishes Sampler. This collection is a set of six polishes that are broken down into 3 PixieDust Polishes and 3 Satin Polishes. The three base colors are blue, purple, and black. Buying the Zoya Wishes as a collection only cost $57, which is a really good bargain.
The Zoya Wishes collection is Zoya’s 2014 Holiday Collection. The sampler contains one FULL-SIZE bottle of each polish in the collection. The three PixieDust polishes in the collection are Nori, Thea, and Imogen. The three Satin polishes in the collection are Prim, Haven, and Willa.

Hopefully you enjoyed this preview of the Zoya Wishes collection and the goodies that you get when you order from Zoya. Next Monday I will have a post and video up of swatches from all the polishes in the Zoya Wishes collection. Make sure to come back then!
