Wren was extremely popular and has sold out but can be described as a royal purple infused with blue, pink, and silver micro shimmer.

Wren is an absolutely stunning colour, when I put it on, it gave me Berry Good Looking by Cupcake polish vibes, sadly I no longer own my bottle, I sold it some time ago, but Wren has that same deep blue flash and as you can see in the pics, it was freaking my camera out.

Wren already came with the Z Wide brush inside, I guess that Zoya have finally bowed to pressure and its now the default brush, Wren has a fantastic formula, she was almost opaque in one coat, no running or pooling and I did two coats for my manicure, when I wore Wren outside in the sunshine she was mesmerising! 

The last pic is of my nails, since Zoya started shipping to the UK again I got the Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and I have been using that on my nails every manicure since April, in June I added in the Barry M Nail Strengthener which I use 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off along with my usual Zoya Anchor basecoat.  The two shiny nails are nails with breaks, the left hand I dont remember how I broke it, the right one was catching a flat of coca cola two weeks ago.  Once they have grown past the free edge I'll file them all back but I am thrilled with the way they are looking now.


  1. It's disappointing they've already discontinued it! And I'm sad about the Z-wide brushes. BUT Wren is gorgeous!!! And your nails look great! :)

    1. I think they didnt realise how popular Wren would be, its a stunning colour. I asked on their Instagram if the Z Wide was to be the default and they said they couldnt say. Yeah I am amazed aat how good they look using the Qtica.

    2. It is!! I'm picky about purples, but I really like Wren! The fact that it has pink, blue and silver shimmer is kinda reminding me of Aster, though Aster is much, much paler. I like how vibrant Wren is, and how balanced between both warm and cool and pink and purple it is.

    3. Yes, its such a stunning colour and the sparkles really do set it off, I'm wondering if I wore Banks and tried out some different flakie topppers. how cool they would look.

    4. Ooh, that'd be amazing!! Giada could also be similar; they're both warm, bright purples, though Giada has a pearlier finish. Do you have many Zoya toppers? I have Maria-Luisa, Dallas, and Monet; I don't think they do as many as some other brands (I only have Zoya).

    5. I have a lot of Zoya toppers :) I have 17 classed as toppers.

    6. Oh, wow! :) Have you ever done a "masterpost" of them all?

    7. No, that would be a lot of work to pull them all out, it would be a huge picture heavy post too, hmmm maybe I could do it colour groups??

    8. Yeah, that makes sense. Yeah, and link to the next part or something! :)
