Zoya Nail Color Blogger Collection by Birchbox

Zoya, my all-time favorite brand of nail polish teamed up with Birchbox and several bloggers to create  the Blogger Collection, three exclusive limited edition nail polish shades. First, each blogger made a mood board capturing her favorite spring/summer colors. Next, Birchbox Facebook fans were asked to vote for the top three boards, which the polish experts at Zoya used to custom-design this stunning trio. Kate is a pinkish grapefruit that comes courtesy of The Small ThingsEleventh Gorgeous created Coraline, a warm juicy tangerine. Capitol Hill Style is the force behind Belle, a coppery pink which features microscopic bits of iridescent glitter.

Spotted: Gossip Girl & Birchbox Join Forces

I just signed up for Birchbox last week and have yet to receive my first package, so I can’t quite vouch for its awesomeness yet, but let me just say: I chose the right time to jump onboard! For those who have been living under a rock like I have (until last week, of course), Birchbox is a subscription service that sends you a custom-selected batch of hand-picked beauty samples each month for $10 each month. And if you’re a huge beauty addict like me, that’s a pretty cool deal.

And in honor of Gossip Girl’s upcoming season 5 finale, the beauty gurus have teamed up with the CW series to deliver new and existing subscribers a batch of goodies curated by the show’s hair and makeup mavens, Amy Tagliamonti and Jennifer Johnson. I’m not even a fan of the show, but I do know that if these samples are good enough for Blake Lively (ahem, I mean Serena van der Woodsen), they’re good enough for me to give a whirl!  Read more
