Hey everyone! Short and sweet post today (if you exclude the rant!) featuring Dannii from the Zoya Intimate Collection.
Dannii is named in honour of the Aussie starlet Dannii Minogue, and like it's namesake it is beautiful and feminine. I love the warmth that the gold shimmer brings to this polish.
I found Dannii to be a little on the thick side in terms of formula, but it was also super opaque so it only needed two coats. I love it when a polish is pigmented and opaque in two coats!
Dannii is available with the rest of the Intimate collection as of today! (Here in Australia that is - it has been available in the USA for a while now). Zoya products are available from Art of Beauty and selected salons, and retail for $17AUD each.
And now for my rant - since some of you may not want to read it, I have decided to put the rant after the jump!
I really had to think long and hard about whether I was going to do this post or not. I have been really disappointed with Zoya as a brand for over a month now. Not because of their products (I love their nail polish!) but with their customer service/public relations people in the USA. I have tried emailing them, tweeting them and sending messages to them on Facebook and have not got one reply!!!!
It is my understanding that Zoya has ceased it's relationship with their Aussie PR firm and I don't know whether they have a new PR here or if they have just stopped doing PR in Australia all together. I want to make it clear that my gripe is not with their former PR people here in Australia, because they have always been completely professional and have always responded to my emails/messages. My issue is with the US Zoya people who don't seem to have any desire to assist or contact any bloggers or customers outside of the USA! I have read that Canadian and European bloggers have also struggled to get a response out of Zoya USA, so I know that my experience is not a one off.
If you read this Zoya, please reconsider your apparent policy of ignoring certain categories of bloggers/customers! I know you read tweets, because I have seen you respond to other blogger's tweets at the exact same time as I have tweeted you! Please don't treat bloggers or your customers like idiots either! They will just take their money elsewhere!
This rant might mean that I never get another product to review, but that doesn't bother me. I don't blog just to get free products, I blog so that my readers can find out about my experiences with certain polishes, and that includes my experiences with the brands as well. If me being honest results in me getting blacklisted from the company, so be it.
So many other nail companies like OPI, Orly, Color Club, Essie and China Glaze all take the time to talk with bloggers/customers, so I don't understand why Zoya can't.
Sorry peeps. I don't normally rant on my blog, but I just coudn't let this one slide.
