Zoya Coraline

Tonight I have a polish from a brand I have featured in awhile-- Zoya! Tonight's polish is Zoya Coraline, which was part of a limited edition box set sold by Birchbox called the Zoya Blogger Collection. Coraline here was designed up the blogger Eleventh Gorgeous. Coraline is described as a "warm, juicy tangerine" and indeed, it is very orange! 

I have heard some jelly polishes described as "syrupy" but I never really understood what that meant until I tried this polish. It's hard for me to describe, but basically the formula on this polish is like syrup-- a little thick but controllable and it just glides across the nail super easily. And this is definitely a jelly, which means it is pretty sheer. I have used four coats in my pictures below. However, despite the number of coats, I didn't mind because the polish is so easy to handle. I felt like it dried a little slowly, but I didn't mind. Additionally, there is obviously still some visible nail line though after four coats it was minimal-- I think the camera picks up more than you can actually see in real life.

Doesn't this look juicy? I love it. I don't even mind the visible nail line, this was so gorgeous on the nail line. This is perfect summer color and I love the shiny, juicy finish.

This polish is part of a limited edition box set that is currently available on the Birchbox website for $22 (plus free shipping).


  1. Jellies have a way of making vnl perfectly fine. ;) This is such a great color, all bright and juicy, and so pretty on you!

    1. I know, right? Jellies make VNL totally acceptable.

  2. Such a pretty color. Zoya can do no wrong, in my book :-)

    1. They're pretty good! I always like every polish in their collections!
