Pink Nail Polish for Summer: The Zoya Pink Palette

Zoya Joanie from Pink Palette

Hi everyone! 

I have been slacking off in the blog department lately. Sorry about that. I have been distracted building a new cutting flower garden. It is a big project and is coming along nicely except for battling the bugs and critters! I am posting my progress along with gardening tips on youtube if you would like to follow along. I call the garden Foxes Run Garden. 

Follow Foxes Run Garden on Youtube

That being said, I would now like to show you the Zoya Pink Palette for Summer 2022 as well as the Hello Summer Curated Collection.

This Pink Palette collection has been going swimmingly well at the salon since pink is so great for summer. I'm a pink lover myself, especially for summer! There are cool creamy pinks and warm creamy pinks plus one iridescent glitter pink in this collection of 6 colors. I have included a swatch comparison in later this post. I think it really helps you see how the colors look.

I frequently have issues with steaking when applying light opaque colors that have a lot of white pigment in them.  Especially when the nails are ridgey. 

One of the colors, Joanie, in this collection can go on a bit streaky. Three to four thin coats of polish will solve the issue. Polishing on fake nails also solves the issue!

People who have nail ridges should always use Zoya Get Even to prep the nails and create a smooth canvas to start with.

For the swatches in this post, I applied Zoya Naked Manicure Base, 2 to 4 coats of polish depending on the color and topped them all off with Zoya Ultra Glossy Seal.

The Zoya Pink Palette Summer 2022

Zoya Angel

Zoya Angel swatch
Angel is a cool toned iridescent glitter pink that looks gorgeous as a topper or used all by itself. It contains pink, periwinkle and gold small glitter particles to create a light reflective finish. Use 3 to 4 coats to create a semi solid metallic finish. Use 1 coat over any color as a special effects topper.

Zoya Joanie

Zoya Joanie Swatch
Joanie is a well pigmented pale cool pink cream. It has that whitish pink look that is so bright and beachy! I find this type of pigmented pale pink can go on a bit streaky but will look absolutely amazing if you take your time and apply 3 to 4 thin coats to get a nice solid finish.

Zoya Maddy

Zoya Maddy Swatch
Maddy is a cool light creamy pink. It creates a similar beachy look like Joanie, but contains more pink making it softer looking. I like to apply 3 thin coats for a nice solid finish.

Zoya Shannon

Zoya Shannon Swatch
Shannon is a creamy medium warm toned pink that looks beautiful on many skin tones. Two coats will provide with nice even coverage. It's another shade that looks nice on many skin tones.

Zoya Kay

Zoya Kay Swatch
Kay is a bright warm toned pink. Two coats will give you nice coverage. It's a happy pink that is perfect for summer. I love it for toes!

Zoya Gigi

Zoya Gigi Swatch
Gigi is a bright warm toned pink that is almost coral. It has been the most popular color in the collection at the salon because it is so colorful and looks gorgeous on the fingers and toes!

Here is a Zoya Pink Palette Swatch Comparison:

Zoya Pink Palette Swatch Comparison Kay vs Gigi

See aren't they perfect for summer? I am very pleased with this collection.

Zoya is also offering the Hello Summer Collection.

Zoya Hello Summer 2022
Zoya has curated a collection of all time, most popular shades from past summer releases. It's a rainbow of brights!

Darcy- a full-coverage sunny yellow cream

Ali neon- an ultra-bright warm, medium neon pink cream

Charisma neon- an ultra bright neon fluorescent magenta/red-toned, purple cream

Dory- a vibrant cornflower blue cream

How to Dispose of Old Nail Polish


There are special guidelines when throwing away paint to prevent contamination of soil and water sources. For instance, a can latex paint needs to be a solid, not liquid, to be thrown in the trash. The paint can should be opened to allow the liquid to evaporate. The can is okay to put in the trash when the paint is dried.
old nail polish
We don't think about it, but nail polish is paint. Most of us just toss an old unwanted bottle of nail polish in the trash. This creates the possibility of contamination of soil and water if the bottle is broken in a landfill. Here is what we need to do:

1. Pour the polish out of the bottle on to a paper towel and let it dry.

2. Leave the top off of the polish bottle to allow the polish remnants to harden.

3. Once the polish is all dry, the paper towel and polish bottle can be tossed safely in the trash.


It's an easy way to help protect our environment everyday.

Over Exfoliated Dehydrated Skin

Exfoliation. It's a big deal in skin care. Exfoliation removes dead skin which makes our skin look younger, helps prevent clogged pores and promotes collagen production. There is an enormous emphasis on exfoliation in the skin care industry right now. Maybe too much emphasis. 

Can exfoliation be over done? It can indeed be over done.

Especially in the winter when the skin is in a dryer, more delicate condition.

dry skin

Signs that your skin is over exfoliated:

Dehydrated, dry and tight feeling skin
Skin has a burning sensation
Skin care products burn when applied
Sensitive, irritated, rashy areas
Flaking
Redness

If your skin is feeling this way, stop all forms of exfoliation and use a gentle, minimal skin care routine to let the skin calm and heal.


Skin Care Products to heal Over Exfoliated Dehydrated Skin

Use No Exfoliation Products, at All! 
There are a lot of exfoliating products and exfoliating ingredients hidden in skin care and makeup products.

Exfoliation products include ultrasonic facial cleansing brushes, grainy scrubs, liquid exfoliators such as salicylic acid and alpha hydroxy acids, Retin A, Renova, loofahs, washcloths, even most facial masks do some exfoliation.

Foundations, bb creams, cc creams and moisturizers can contain anti aging ingredients, such as retinol, that have exfoliating properties. Check your labels.

There are many gentle products, cruelty free of course, I recommend for over exfoliated dehydrated skin. My Amazon Affiliate links are included to help you find these great products.

Morning Cleansing 
Just splash with warm water, pat dry and spray on a healing toner. I love YonKa Lotion PS to soothe and heal dehydrated skin. It is an amazing healing mist toner that contains essential oils and glycerin which attracts water to the skin from humidity in the air.

YonKa Lotion PS
Yonka Lotion PS
YonKa Lotion PS is a soothing healing mist. It is called lotion but it is actually a toner full of a Yonka's signature blend of essential oils. It's scent is devine!

Morning Moisturizing
Use a gentle, basic moisturizer that contains a minimal amount of ingredients. Make sure it does not contain retinol, salicylic acid or hydrox acids. Apply it right after your toner to seal in moisture. 

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Sensitive Skin Daily Calming Moisturizer
yes to cucumber calming daily moisturizer
This gentle moisturizer contains zinc oxide which is both a sunscreen and skin healer. It also contains healing aloe, cucumber extract, sweet almond oil and green tea to calm and heal sensitive skin.

Nighttime Cleansing 
Use a gentle moisturizing facial cleanser that contains a minimal amount of ingredients. Make sure it does not contain retinol, salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids. 

Use your cleanser in the evening to remove dirt and makeup. Wet your face, apply the cleanser with your hands, massage it over your face to loosen dirt and makeup. Rinse it off well and pat dry. Do not use a washcloth. Spray on a healing toner.

 Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Gentle Milk Cleanser
Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Gentle Milk Cleanser
This is a very gentle facial cleanser containing aloe, green tea and cucumber extract to gently remove makeup dirt and excess oils without stripping the skin.

Nighttime Moisturizing 
Slather on the emollients! Try shea butter, coconut oil or avocado oil. Apply your emollient product generously right after cleansing and toning for overnight skin healing.

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream
Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream
This fragrance free healing cream calms, heals and restores sensitive skin with glycerin, peptides and amino acids.

Makeup
It will be difficult to find a liquid makeup, bb cream or cc cream that doesn't contain some sort of exfoliating ingredient like retinol. Also, foundation doesn't apply well to dehydrated flaky skin. It tends to cake up. 

Use your fingers, not a brush, for gentle foundation application. Pat with a soft sponge to blend. Avoid applying powder makeups at this time. They with make your skin look even more dry.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30
 Complexion Rescue is a tinted moisturizer which makes it a lightweight product that improves the look of the skin without looking cakey on dry, flakey skin. 

More Help for Over Exfoliated Dehydrated Skin

Use a Humidifier 
A humidifier is a great device for adding moisture to the air in your living space. The moist air will help the skin retain moisture and heal.

No Hot Water 

Hot water dehydrates your irritated skin even more. Quick warm showers are your best option.

Eat Healing Foods

Add healthy skin healing foods to your diet.

Flax seed oil


Take Vitamin D


Omega 3 Fatty Acids:  Soybeans, walnuts, flax seeds and salmon


Omega 6 Fatty Acids:  Cereals and grains, oils: flax seed, soybean, corn, sunflower, cottonseed, black currant and evening primrose and egg yolks

Mono-unsaturated fats- Avocados, olives, olive oil, nuts


Give your skin time
Give your skin a good month of healing time. You can go back to exfoliating once your skin is healed but with a less zealous routine. Your old exfoliation routine will only cause a problem again.

Gentle Exfoliating Products
Use only gentle exfoliating products once your skin is healed. No physical exfoliating products meaning products with grains. Grains scratch the skin causing micro abrasions which lead to inflammation, sensitivity and dehydration. The abrasives in a physical exfoliating product include rice, almonds, seeds, salt and sugar. 

Use only liquid or cream exfoliating products on your face.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant
Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant
This is an all time favorite product for me! This liquid exfoliant contains Salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) to gently remove dead cells. Use it in the evening instead of your toner. Pour a small amount on a cotton ball and apply it to your face. It is suitable for all skin types. For very sensitive skin types, I recommend using it every other day.

Water, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Melissa Officinalis (Balm Mint) Extract, Spiraea Ulmaria (Meadowsweet) Extract, Alcohol Denat., Ethyl Lactate, Salicylic Acid, Fragrance, Geraniol, Linalool, Citronellol, Limonene, Polysorbate 20, Disodium EDTA

I hope my tips help your over exfoliated, dehydrated skin become moist and beautiful again!

Brides, I can help you get your skin glowing, beautiful and healthy for your wedding day makeup application! See me at Styling Point in Media, Pa for a healing YonKa facial.
