Zoya - Kelly

I posted just Monday but it already feels like it's been longer! I've been looking for a new place to live, so that's been consuming pretty much all of my time. But I managed to do my nails in between searching online and viewing properties!

It's nothing too exciting at first glance, but I'm actually a big fan of gray polishes and neutral colors. Zoya Kelly is an interesting gray though. It's pretty dark, but also leans heavily toward bluish purple. It's a very unique shade in my collection. 

I also really love Zoya Carey which is a lighter gray that leans toward blue. Zoya makes some beautiful colors, even gray shades! I didn't apply a topcoat this time to see how smooth it would be on its own. It applied nicely and was very opaque in two coats.

I applied two coats of Kelly. It doesn't look perfectly smooth since I didn't apply Seche Vite on top like usual, but it's still very glossy and smooth on its own. Though I think I will add topcoat just so it's even smoother and lasts a bit longer!

Or I might put some glitter on top. I really love the color, but it seems a bit plain. I think I'm too used to having crazy nails and never wearing a single color! At least Kelly could make an interesting base for just about any color. 

I bought Kelly for $8 from Zoya's website. Kelly is originally from the Wonderful collection. 

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own. 


  1. This is one of those shades that would work well for a fall neutral. Very work appropriate . Kind of thinking I have an Essie that is similar to this Zoya

    1. It's pretty dark on my fair skin so I'm a little worried it's too dark for some situations, but at least my workplace is ok with any nails. I do like other neutrals like this. I have Essie Chinchilly which is a very warm dark gray. I think I might have Zoya Petra too. I might have to compare them all if I actually have them!


I would love to hear your feedback!
