Better pictures: Zoya Pulse Collection

I felt embarrassed about the crappy pictures of the Zoya Pulse collection that I posted, so when I had some sunlight the other day, I snapped a better picture.




Here's Jacy. I think I captured the shimmer a little better this time. If you click the picture, I think you'll be able to see the pretty pink sparkles.


And, the rest:


Thumb to pinkie: Blair, Colbie, Sloane, Rihana, Mikka.

Aren't they gorgeous?

And, a sidenote: I'm working on all of your requests. I know I've been behind in posting lately, but I really love your requests and I'm picky about getting the perfect picture for you! Always feel free to email me (with the word 'request' somewhere in the email or subject line, cause it makes searching my email a little easier ;-) ) or leave a comment with a request. I may not be able to post it right away, but I really enjoy doing them.

If you feel like I've forgotten you, or I'm taking too long, let me know! I don't want to forget anyone! You guys are the best :)

  14. I too always refer to your blog before buying a polish. It's so great to have your blog, and you're a really thoughtful person to buy all the polishes in the collections and swatch them for us. So a great big THANKYOU for all your hard work :-)

    And... I have a request but only when you have time ;-)
    I'd love to see YOUR all time favourite polishes! You always do stuff for us I want to see what you love to wear! :-)

  15. Your pics are great, Scrangie! I haven't been home early enough to catch the sunlight so I can stare at my new beautiful Zoya bottles in all their glory... so your pics help feed my love! I couldn't believe how Sloane was practically opaque after one coat! *sigh* So awesome...

  16. Kayvid(MUA): Holy Moly! This is one awesome blog...just chanced upon it and now I'm hooked. Love the swatches. I am a newbie, could you please help me by pointing out whihc stores I can buy China Glaze, Zoya, Misa and Orly at? And I mean, new collections and everything. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. As for requests, I agree with all the readers who have been asking you to give us a list of your top polishes...I know, I know, too many! Maybe dividing them by colour category or brand would help.
    Looking forward to your list!!

  18. omg! scrangie! i just saw one of your pics on nail gal - RBL Noisette! Where did you get that one! it is gorrrgeous! (=

  19. Your nails are so gorgeous! I love the Jacy color!

  20. Carla G, thank you SO much :D Seriously, that means a lot to me! I love to help and to share my obsession with other polish junkies :) And I think I will do a post with my favorite polishes! Except, almost every polish is my favorite LOL

    Fauxfun, thank you!! :D Aren't they beautiful?? Sloane is sooo hot, I almost want to drink it, XD

    Hi Kay! Welcome! :) I usually buy all those polishes online at a discount from 8ty8beauty.com, head2toebeauty.com or transdesign.com. Zoya is available from Zoya.com
    I know that Ulta and Sally Beauty carry a limited selection of China Glaze and Orly, but I'm not sure which store sells Misa or Zoya. Hope this helps :)

    Melli, that's a great idea, and sounds much more manageable! :D

    Andie, I got mine on Amazon.com! It was recently discontinued, but last time I checked, Amazon and Beautysak.com still had them in stock :)

    Lydia, thank you :) Jacy is extremely pretty :)

  21. Scrangie, your previous swatches were fine! I was wondering though, would you happen to have mixed Colbie and Blair up before in your first swatches? Or is it the lighting? In your old swatch, it seems that Colbie is more "berry" coloured, and Blair is the blackened red, but here, it looks like Colbie is actually more red than Blair...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Anonymous, yes, thank you! I think I did switch them. And I know for sure I switched Alix and Dakota on the other one :( Normally I line up the bottles in the order I take the pictures, but I must have messed up this one! XD

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sorry, for some reason I thought I was logged in but it still said I was "anonymous"...oh well! Anyway, thanks for clarifying that Scrangie! I accidentally ordered Blair then, so I will have to get Colbie too. The salons here that sell Zoya have NO IDEA about this collection...so maybe they'll never get it in. Anyway, I love Blair too from the "fake" Colbie swatch, so I don't mind owning both!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, sorry Karman! They are really pretty close to each other, and they're both beautiful :) I think I'll have to start writing them down as I go so I can't somehow mix them up! =/

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh no worries!! I was going to order the whole collection anyway, I just decided that I have a lot of jeweled purples like Jacy and that I don't *need* Rihana...I was actually going to order both Colbie and Blair in the first place! I'm just thankful you're willing to take all this time and swatch them for us!! =)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Karman, awww thank you :) I will be more careful next time, but I'm really glad you brought it to my attention! :D <3

  27. Thanks Scrangie!! MY Never Enough SHoes looks a touch browner..love the ZOyas!!!!!

  28. I love them Scrangie! Is Sloane similar to ChG Midnight Ride (or anything else)?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just put on Yasmeen for the first time today -- how do the lot of these compare to it? I love the dark purple shimmers...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Diann_co, thanks! I'd say Sloane and Midnight Ride are somewhat similar- dark and shimmery with a purple base, but Sloane is a brighter purple :)

    Penemuel, I don't think any of these are really similar to Yasmeen color-wise, but Blair and Colbie have the same type of shimmer/texture that Yasmeen has :D

  31. You've got the most beautiful nails. :)

    How do you feel about MAC polishes?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Pimentoplane, thank you so much!

    I have mixed feelings about MAC polish- some of the old ones used to be not-so-good, but the newly released ones are much better quality. I have no complaints about the colors- their colors ROCK! But some of the old ones took a long time to dry and chipped easily. I haven't had that problem with the more recent ones. Hope this helps :)
