Zoya Blogger Collection by Birchbox - Kate & Belle

Greetings lovelies, happy Friday! I'm finishing up my last day at my regular job and I'm a little teary eyed, and really I have a lot to do so I don't have much to chat about other than to show you the second swatch combo from Zoya's Blogger Collection by Birchbox.

Here again is the trio:

Zoya - Kate:

Two Coats:

Kate is a beautiful coral red jelly that definitely leans to the red side of the spectrum, and in these photos looks almost neon. A gorgeous jelly, and slightly more opaque at 2 coats than Coraline. I would definitely wear Kate at two coats without needing a third. Sooo purdy.

Three Coats:

Kate is so gorgeous at three coats it makes me a little sick to my stomach, I wish these were candies so I could eat them all up. Just as with Coraline, application of Kate was effortless and even with no wait time between coats I had no issues. The brush just glides over the previous coat as if it weren't even there, I wish every polish I owned applied like this. Also, the lamplight really brings out the orange undertones to this red coral.

Zoya - Belle:

Same as yesterday, Belle is a pink grapefruit layering jelly with pink, color shifting glass flecks. It looks amazing over Kate and in these photos appears much more red than when applied over an orange hue (obviously? lol). Again, application was a breeze and this is one coat over three coats of Kate.

Shimmer Jelly Sandwich:

Three coats Kate, one coat Belle, another final coat of Kate. Pure shimmer sammich perfection. I don't think there is anything else to say about this other than it looks like my nails are on FIYAH! There are extra pictures of this layering combo because Kate is more opaque than Coraline and thus the shimmer of Belle is less noticable, particularly under low or lamp lighting. It is practically invisible really, under lower lighting, but still mega cool because as polish snobs we know it is there giving our manis a little extra junk in the trunk.


Neon. Seriously, bright as hell and looking more like a red than a coral. Ignore the dent, fresh paint. lol

So, what do you guys think? I dig it.

Now, back to the grindstone at work... or I'll never get my stuff wrapped up!


  1. As much as I dislike vnl, I love these colors. They're so bright and squishy looking. I'm drooling over the matte combo. I wonder if it's too late to purchase these?

    1. Last I checked they were still available on the Birchbox site, but that was maybe a week ago. I wasn't always into vnl but now I am unless the shade is super sheer. Idk it all depends I guess! lol
