The one with Zoya Maura, Heidi, Stella and Max!

What better way to kick off a Monday than be offering some Zoya spam? :) I know Zoya always brightens my day!

Maura is a bright pink-leaning red - well not a lot of pink! But this polish leans more pink than orange. It's a gorgeous red creme. Formula is lovely, as is the case with all Zoyas! This was one of the very first Zoyas I added to my collection :)

Heidi is a soft coral creme. I have a friend named Heidi, and this really doesn't fit her personality! haha But it's a lovely color nonetheless. The formula is a tad thick. I had some trouble maneuvering it onto the nail, but with careful thin coats it came out all right.

Stella is one of THREE polishes I own with this name! I seriously need to do some nail art with all the polishes named Stella I have haha Everytime I think of the name, I wanna scream STELLAAAAAAA at the top of my lung like from that old movie...was it A Streetcar Named Desire? I think so, but anyway....Zoya Stella is a blue-toned red with hidden silver shimmer. So lovely, so simple. The formula is a tad thin on this one, but not so much that it really matters. It builds up in two coats wonderfully.

Last, but certainly not least is Max! This polish is sort of a smash-up of strawberry pink and red. It leans way pink...way more than Maura. The formula on Max is stellar. No patchiness or streakiness...just good clean polish! If it's one thing you can always count on with Zoya polishes, it's superior quality. I don't think Max is available on the Zoya site anymore, so I'm thankful I was able to snatch the color up!

And there you have it! Today's Zoya spam! Do you have any of these colors? Or colors like them?

**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself. I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
