McKenna by Zoya can be best described as a refined pearl in a soft almond. I'm not sure I'd call this a pearl finish, its much less pearl than Brizia from the other day, good formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats.  I'd say this is a hair warmer in tone than Taylor from yesterday. This stamps slightly better as well.

I am enjoying doing this series as I have added a column to my excel spreadsheet to confirm if a Zoya stamps (yes I am that nerdy when it comes to my Zoya), I once tried some proper stamping polish and when I went to do clean up it just smeared all over and I was using acetone to remove it as well, no thanks, I'll stick with regular polish for stamping. I use the Clear Jelly Stamper Big Bling stamper, its great.


  1. Not so keen on this either. Was thinking Paul McKenna for a second there!

    1. Ha! I think that would be a funky kind of polish if it was Paul McKenna!

    2. Oh for sure. Not sure what he is up to these days?

    3. Apparently trying to get you to lose weight according to his website, I was never a fan to be honest
