I love both of these lovely purple OPI cremes. I started with a base of OPI Done Out In Deco and then added Parlez Vous Francais on half of each nail.

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Sage And A Comparison

Zoya Sage is part of the Naturel Satins Collection for 2015.
I've had LOTS of trouble with this collection but Sage applied so much better than the paler colors I've tried. Still a bit tricky but I made it work. Sage is a lovely greyed out green color and I do love the satin finish.

Zoya Sage is very similar to Zoya Bevin but the finish is different. Zoya Wednesday is much brighter.

Zoya Dovima And Loredana: A Nail Art Comparison

I really loved Zoya's Matte Velvet collection and thought I'd show you a side by side comparison of the two grey polishes, Dovima and Loredana. I started with a coat of Loredana and then added a stripe of Dovima down the middle of each nail. Personally I think you need both if you're a matte polish lover. Dovima definitely reads as black most of the time while Loredana is more of a gunmetal grey.

Zoya Teigen And India: A Nail Art Comparison

I've only done a handful of comparisons so far but I like this on the nail style. Here we have Zoya Teigen and India. I started with a base of Teigen and then added the chevron french tip in Zoya India. Both lovely colors!

Zoya Arabella vs Zoya Miranda Comparison

Zoya Arabella on the left & Zoya Miranda on the right. Very similar but Arabella is a much deeper color which makes sense since it's from the fall collection. Arabella also leans more purple while Miranda is more pure rose. I'm keeping them both!

Zoya Lotus & Tru: A Nail Art Comparison!

Zoya Lotus & Tru are from the newly released True collection. I've fianlly worn them all & I can tell you that I love the whole collection just as much as I did Zoya's Intimate collection from spring last year! As many other bloggers have pointed out, Zoya really nails their color descriptions so I'll be using them in my posts.

First we have Lotus "a very soft, dusty blue-toned amethyst purple with colorful shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold. A dreamy smoky shade for purple lovers that looks both soft and luminous." Great formula & lovely color.
 
Zoya Tru is "a saturated, red-toned grape purple with speckled shimmer that reflects gold, orange and red. Bold and saturated warm color made even more interesting with color-shifting shimmer." I like this one even more than Lotus. The formula is great on this too.
I decided to do the same type of nail art for these colors that I did with Cho & Farah from the same collection. It's very easy & I like the results. You can really see the shimmer in the last photo.
Thanks for reading!

Zoya Cho & Farah: A Nail Art Comparison!

Zoya Cho & Farah are from the newly released True collection. I'll have the rest of the collection up over the next week or so. I can tell you that I love the whole collection just as much as I did Zoya's Intimate collection from spring last year! As many other bloggers have pointed out, Zoya really nails their color descriptions so I'll be using them in my posts.

First up we have Zoya Cho an "opaque yellow-toned light soft peachy beige with a hint of ultra fine silver shimmer. A light, creamy nude especially nice for skin tones with olive or yellow undertones."
I added a few drops of thinner to aid in application and had no problems after that. I think it's gorgeous! I've got lots of pictures in full sun & in the shade.
Next we have Zoya Farah "an opaque light khaki-beige with subtle sandy, greenish undertones and a cream finish." I love this one too! The application was typical of a pastel creme and didn't self level very well, but a few drops of thinner & topcoat evened things out nicely.
 
 

I know many people will want to see how these two compare. I did some simple but lovely nail art so my readers can really see them side by side. This was so pretty in person!! I used Cho for the base & Farah for the tips.
