Last week I told you guys about the Zoya Nail Polish Exchange. Well I scanned my collection for old polish that I could send in and sure enough I found ten old bottles to send to Zoya. I mailed my polish out to Zoya on Wednesday April 28th and received my new polish today. That was super fast shipping. I have never received a package from Zoya that quick. I sent in mostly old Sally Hansens, an Avon and an old dried out OPI polish.
First from the Summer 2010 Flash Collection…
Maura, Robyn and Perrie
America, Ali, Maya, Yummy, Pippa, Charlize & Purity
America, Ali, Maya, Yummy
Pippa, Charlize, Purity
Robyn and Yummy are very similar, however Robyn is a “Robin’s Egg” blue and Yummy is more of a sky blue.
Maura and America are also very similar, but Maura is more of a neon red and America is a classic, pin up girl red. It is hard to tell in the photo.
Since shipping was $3.50 a bottle, I paid $35.00 for the transaction. Zoya polish retails for $7 a bottle with $6 shipping, and usually ships free with a $75 order. Basically I received about a 46% discount on a regular order while properly disposing of my old, unused polish. The Zoya Nail Polish Exchange is a perfect way for you to try out Zoya Polish at a discount if you are new to the brand , or to update your collection without breaking the bank. I am extremely happy about how smooth the transaction went and I would definitely participate again.
Have any of you guys sent in any old polish yet? If so, what colors did you get? If not, are you planning to participate?
🙁 not in canada..cool colors tho
@Jenn Thanks girlie. Awww I know. Hopefully soon Zoya will expand their shipping :/
@Halifax With Zoya growing so rapidly and such a high demand for the product overseas, I am surprised that they do not ship internationally or at least give authorization to retailers overseas. Hopefully this is in their future plans.I totally understand the feeling with the numerous brands that are not available to us US girlies. :/
Thanx for sharing. I will be mailing off my polishes later on today.
I'm sending out my old polish tomorrow. I got 10 for myself, and 6 for my mom. The Exchange really does save a ton of money, and it helps the environment. I'm so happy I am able to participate in it this year.
@Jean You are so right. The program totally saves a ton of money and saves the environment. I am glad to see someone else participating. Have you picked out the colors you want yet?
Yeah, I plan on getting Adina, Jo, Kiki, Kotori, Mimi, Roxy, Savita, Yasmeen, Yummy, and Zara. My mom picked out Drew, Evangeline, Shivon, Midori, Harley, and Marcella.
Great picks! I have Savita, Yummy (new), Shivon and Midori. All are very pretty.
It is a good deal, no argument there. It's just that Zoya only offers it inside US. Lots of int' girls miss out 🙁
You chose some nice shades. You're gonna be all set for the summer, girly!
Thats so amazing. and i love you color choices, that baby blue is super pretty!
not available out of US >.< but eventhough asia have other brands, but they dont have these exchange campaign wic is a genius! i want zoya!!!
This exchange programme is such a fantastic idea! It was certainly a very good deal and win-win for both parties. The new Zoya's that you got are such cheerful colours!
@Alycia No problem. I can't wait to se your new polishes.
@MochaMishMash thanks hon. I am totally set for Summer!
@Jess Thanks girl. The baby blue is very pretty. I have nothing else like it in my collection.
@Elle Although the exchange program is not available to you, I hear there are some legit retailers on ebay if you really want to try the brand.
Oh wow so many cute colors… it must feel like Christmas eve all over again for you
I can't wait to participate in this…I will be making my exchange in a few weeks. Here are the polishes I plan to purchase:
Gwin, Adina, Charla, Zara, Nidhi, Raven.
@Amandita Yes hun I am loving my new polish!
@Serena Glad to see another participant! 🙂
@Witoxicity Thank you. Definitely a win-win situation. 🙂
I haven't sent mine in yet! I need to get on it and look through my stash because I know I have a few dried out and some I don't like. I'm glad to hear the whole process went smoothly! 🙂
@LipGlossGossip Glad to here that you will be participating. It was smooth sailing 🙂
Does this brand of polish chip? I am in desperate need of a new polish that stays on my nail bed. I am going to share your post with my blog readers. Great entry.
@Rashidah I use Seche Vite Crystal Clear Base Coat or China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat, along with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and I have no problems with chipping. My manicure usually lasts me about 5-7 days with minor tip wear. Hope that helps. Thanks for sharing my post 🙂
those are some really pretty colors. i plan on exchanging some of mine but im having the most difficult time trying to figure out how to do it. i must be slow. lol
@Angela thanks girl. It's super easy. You sign up on their website. Choose the colors you want from their collection, pay by credit/debit card (charged when shipped)or mail a check, print out the form and ship it with your old polish and wait for your new polish. That simple! 🙂
Awesome colors. I'm sending my exchange out tomorrow, can't wait 🙂
Can you swatch Charlize for us? I'm looking for a 'mannequin hands' type of shade and it looks almost perfect.
Thanks Shelby. What shades are you exchanging for?
Sure, I can swatch Charlize 🙂
I’m exchanging for:
Lol, that looks like so many when I type them all out.
Great choices! I have Midori, Freja, Perrie and Loredana. They are all so pretty.
Those are some nice colors, especially Robyn & Yummy. I have yet to try Zoya’s polishes. I need to get up on it though
Thanks hon. Robyn is gorgeous, I kept it on for 2 weeks with no chips. Received a lot of compliments on the color. You absolutely must try out Zoya polishes girl, you won't look back!
