Zoya Richelle

Hello everyone,

Today I'll be showing you another Zoya! I'm starting to own a few in my collection now ;) But this one it wasn't my choice. It was sent to me by mebeautylounge instead of Zoya Faye...! I was really mad to find this one in my package instead of the gorgeous Faye. But, still it's a cute polish, holidays like. I hasd to search for this one, see from which collection is.. And I've found that it is part of the 2008 Holidays Collection (Flourish, I believe it is called).

Zoya Richelle is a nice copper foil, with a millions and millions of coppery shimmer inside. The application was ok, but there are steel some brush stroke traces left, and I, personlally, don't really appreciate this... Needs 2 coats for full coverage.

So here are the pictures:

And then decided to try and see how a cooper crackle would look over a copper polish?? :)
Well, like this:

Yes, La Rosa crackle dries matte! And the effect is bizarre. Looks as if my nails grew in volume and are about to lose one coat of skin, like serpents :)

But with a coat of Seche Vite on top of all this, everything get better:

Not the nicest mani I've done :) But I couldn't resist the temptation of trying to layer these two together ;)

Whish you all an excellent week!!

See ya!
Big hugs everyone!


  1. Love Richelle alone! It looks very nice on you. You should complain about your messed up order and ask them to send you it! I think you will like Faye. ^^

  2. I agree with Liz...I hate when people mess up my orders. -__-

    But anyway, Richelle is quite pretty on you and the crackle matte thingy looks really cool! Exactly like a snake. n_n

  3. @Liz: Thank you, Liz! Well, I did send an e-mail to complain about it, and I was quite furious with them because they have not only replaced Zoya Faye by Zoya Richelle, but also they've replaced Color Club Wild and Willing by Color Club Mrs Hautie... 2 mistakes in one command. At least they've replaced the polishes with something from the same brand... But the problem is that there is ALWAYS something wrong with their commands. Always something missing, and now: replacement.
    And never answered to my e-mail! Mbeautylounge are known for their very bad customer support. So I've decided that this was my last command with them.

    @ChaosButterfly: Yeah, me too...! Thank you for Richelle!;)

    @Minty: Thank you, Minty!

  4. Eek! That sounds like a nightmare. Yeah, you shouldn't order from them again. I can't believe they are not answering your emails. It's unheard of!

  5. i love the shade but not the crackle :) still zoya is something i want to try out myself.

    by the way, i am a new follower. i hope you could check out my blog too :)

  6. Thank you, Kate! Zoya does great polishes, if you have the opportunity, don't hesitate to get some bottles.

    I'll come to your blog, that's for sure. But.. you're not a follower..! Not mine, anyway ;)
