Zoya Kelly Swatches and Review

A couple days ago, Zoya tweeted that 91% of people who placed an order with Zoya purchased Kelly. I was part of that 91%. When I ordered it, I didn't realize it was on backorder, but it arrived shortly after the rest of my order anyway, and it was definitely worth it. This color is so chic, and feels very autumn/winter to me.

Zoya Kelly

Zoya Kelly is a marvelous dark grey that never ever looks black. It has a blue-ish undertone to it, but it still maintains that neutral grey "goes-with-anything" vibe. Sometimes I have a little trouble with Zoya formula (when paired with their small brushes), but this one was very nice. It's not too thin, doesn't dry while I'm applying it, and comes to a beautiful glossy finish. This is two coats shown.

And because I've been wanting to try some "accent finger" manicures, I figured I tried it with this one (since I have the thumb unpainted while swatching). This would be one of those "texting" manicures where the thumb (used to text) is much more flashy while the rest are a nice classy creme or shimmer. It's a bit ridiculous, but I kinda like it. I decided to pair Kelly with Zoya Edyta because it has the same grey base while also having smokey green sparkle.

What do you think? Are you in love with Kelly? Do you like the "texting" manicure, or is it too off-the-wall?


  1. I kind of like the accent! You wouldn't think grey when you hear "Kelly", but this is a really pretty shade.

  2. Don't really care for the accent myself, but I guess I don't get the whole accent manicure thing though. Love that shade of Kelly. I just bought it yesterday myself

  3. I'm new to Zoya and recently tried "Envy" which I really liked. I'm totally in the grey zone right now, so I'll definitely keep an eye out for "Kelly". Thanks for the update! xoxo

  4. this is my favorite zoya polish ever, it doesn't hurt that i share it's name :D great mani!
