The funny thing is I immediately recognized them because besides one of the new orange ones, those are the same polishes from their 2011 Halloween collection! I get that Halloween isn't as big as the winter holidays, but it's still an opportunity for some unique colors.

Mannnnn that Angel Rain is gorgeous. That's the first polish I've felt like I really need in a long time.

And hi-larious hijinks Orly.

Haha, I was like "surely they are exaggerating, the Halloween collection can't be THAT bad" ....then I clicked.

I really like Teal Unreal from the fall collection...mostly because I don't have a nice teal that I like yet.

I wanted to say that I switched to Zoya Anchor and I can't believe the difference in wear time! I went from 2-3 days to 4+ days.

I tried the vinegar trick with my manicure last week and it lasted 8 days before chipping (there was tip where, but I'm not careful about such things, so that's pretty unavoidable). I tried it again today, so we'll see how long this manicure lasts. I used Zoya nail polish for both manicures.

It's so pretty but I bought it mostly because of the name.

Does anyone else sing the Picture Pages theme when you see the brand Picture Polish?

Also, that color is really pretty!

I won the Zoya twitter Emmy promotion! I won a bottle of Carrie Ann AND a 2nd bottle of my choice so I went with Sunshine because I haven't tried their textured or matte polishes.

HOLIDAY? :O

I am not crazy about the green and I have enough purples, but everything else is YES.

Ha, I meant Payton! The wine colored one. Reading comprehension fail.

I'm currently wearing OPI Malaga Wine. It's kind of an untried for me, as I've picked it up at the nail place a lot of times, but always went with something else. I like it.

i think i liked several of the zoya holiday colors better when they were just "zoya spills;" now that i've seen them swatched i'm not so sure. the dark blue (dream?) i thought was going to be more similar to a england tristam, but now it looks more bright than navy. the dark silver/green is kind of interesting, but i have a few things in that color family already so i'm not sure how many i need.

I know this topic has come up on this tread before, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice beyond using cuticle cream/oil. Here is my problem: I have been painting my nails for a few weeks, I guess when the challenge thread started? Well, they are starting to flake and peel like never before. Arg. How do you guys keep your nail beds healthy and happy? I'm wondering if i should start leaving off polish for at least a day to do more moisturizing (the remover seems to be the culprit, though I'm not sure).

What remover are you using? How often do you do cuticle oil?

Try an acetone free remover (Nubar do a very good one) and that cuticle oil needs to go on 2-3 times a day if your nails are dry and peely.

I'm really bad about using cuticle oil, but I think that Zoya Remove+ has really made a difference over other types of removers and straight acetone. My nails went through a really bad period and they are a lot better now. I think part of it just might be trial and error and finding out what works best for you.

Nail strengthener under my base coat made it so my nails stopped peeling. Also, I'm not great about remembering to apply cuticle oil, but I put lotion on my hands at least 3 times a day just cause I can't stand the feeling of my hands getting dry.

i use cuticle oil 2x per day, right before i put hand lotion on. i also use zoya remove+. my nails are in pretty good shape, but i keep them rather short and i do a mani about once a week, so they get a fair amount of attention. i'm not sure what to attribute the good luck to, in all honesty!

this week i'm sporting a full mani/pedi in zoya neve:
