+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: May 3


Zoya Blogger Collection (Birchbox, $22)

Yesterday, a woman walked up to me and asked what color I was wearing on my toes.  It was pretty cool to be able to say, “The shade I designed for Birchbox.”  Sure, it’s my pseudonym, but having your “name” on a polish is pretty cool.  If you want to own the shade that you helped come to life, you should order one soon.  It’s limited edition and selling out quick!

Miss M believes nail polish should be “seasonally appropriate.”  I believe that it should also be sartorially appropriate, meaning your polish should match your outfit.  Check back at 11:00 AM to see which outfits coordinate perfectly with my nail polish.

    How big are the polishes in the set? Are they the mini sample sizes that birchbox sends out?

    aec: They're about the same size as an Essie polish. And the ones Birchbox sends are a full size Zoya polish, I'm pretty sure.

    I loved the idea of the copper penny, but maybe it's my screen or something, but the shade doesn't seem to do justice to the color in the pictures of the polish. Does it really come out looking the color of a shiny new penny?
