That about sums it up I think. Especially when the brand is Zoya and they are running a 50% off promotion for Earth Day! This is a great deal on an excellent brand. Regular price is $8 a bottle (worth every penny in my opinion!) but right now using promo code ZOYAEARTH2013 you will get 50% off your order. The only rules with this promo are that you must order between 6-24 bottles and that all PixieDust shades are excluded. The promotion runs from today through April 26th, 2013.
The reason for this Earth Day promotion is to exchange your old, unwanted polishes for your new Big 5 Free Zoya polishes. They hope everyone who orders with this promotion will return an equal number of old polishes to Zoya to be recycled. You are not required to do this to use the promo code, but hey, why not recycle some old polish rather than throwing it away? It is for Earth Day after all. Instructions for sending the old polish are on the Zoya Blog HERE.
Notes: You still get free shipping with a $25 order using this promo code. If you spend $30 or more you'll get a free deluxe sample of Zoya's Remove+ included in your order too! I love this polish remover, it is my favorite. With my order, while regular shipping was free, I also noticed it was only $2 extra for expedited shipping, so I went ahead and did that. I'm not sure if that is the usual cost to upgrade shipping or if maybe I had to spend a certain amout to get it for $2.

|My current Zoya collection|
There are oh so many colors to choose from! Over 300 according to the Zoya website. I rely heavily on swatches from bloggers to decide what colors I want to try when placing an order. Here are a few resources for online swatches:
Rachel Knows (This one was new to me before today, but I just used her swatches to place my order.)
|Zoya Harley, Rory, Sweet, Happi, Wednesday, Maya and Faye.|
Interested in what colors I ordered today? Well, way too many. Because I have no self control. And a credit card. That's never a good combination. Lol! Here is what my order looked like. Don't judge me. ;-)
A brief history of my love for Zoya...
Zoya Nail Polish has quickly become my favorite brand. I first found out about the brand through some of my favorite YouTubers, MsGoldGirl and PinkSoFoxy to be exact. And this was back in 2011, which I think was before either of them were receiving complimentary polishes from Zoya to review. I made my first purchase in November of 2011 during a "Choose 2 Free" promotion. I picked out Happi and Zara. I made another order in January of 2012 during another "Choose 2 Free" promotion, adding Harley and Kissy to my collection. I realized they sell the brand at Ulta and started purchasing them there too. I have come to really love the brand, slowly replacing some older, cheaper polishes in my collection with comparable Zoya colors. The polishes come in a huge range of colors and finishes, last a long time and apply great. (At least I haven't run into one that doesn't yet.) There are some that are quite sheer, and it took me awhile to figure out that the descriptions on the Zoya website are really thorough and state the intensity of the color on a scale of 1-5. (1 = Sheer and 5 = Opaque.) Of the current collection of 21 shades I own, there are only 2-3 I don't care for as much and it is because of the sheerness, which now I know I could have avoided. Another thing I love about Zoya is all the great promotions they run and their Share the Love program. Oh yeah, and they are Big-5 free!
