Zoya Loredana

Zoya Loredana is from their Matte Velvet collection!
Zoya Loredana is a medium charcoal grey matte shimmer. This collection is meant to be worn without base or top coat and is shown here at 3 thin coats. Loredana is very sheer and streaky on the first coat but applies easily and is completely opaque and streak free by the third coat. 

I am a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile!

Dovima from this set didn't last very long with minor tip wear within 24 hours but Loredana fared much better. I wore Loredana for 3 VERY active days setting up for my annual pumpkin carving party and during the party itself with no chipping and only very minor tip wear. Excellent for a matte polish & another winner from Zoya!

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Dovima

Zoya Dovima is from their Matte Velvet collection!
Zoya Dovima is a dark charcoal matte polish that has a brushed aluminum type of metallic look. This polish is super sexy and had me frequently checking out my own nails. It was very easy to apply in 2 coats, 1 thin and a second slightly thicker coat. Many matte polishes are a royal pain to work with but this went on so nicely, nor brushstrokes or dragging. Plus Dovima dries super fast so you can be ready for a night on the town in almost no time.
This collection is worn without base coat or top coat to accomplish the gorgeous matte velvet finish which decreases wear time quite a bit. I had tip wear after two days and minor chipping on the third. I still think Dovima is totally worth it though. I was able to cover up the tip wear with a thin coat applied over the whole nail and it was dry and looking great again by the time I finished both hands. You could always use them with a base and top coat if the matte finish isn't important to you but I love matte polishes! So maybe a special occasion polish if you are someone who wants long lasting manicure for your day to day life. Also Zoya clearly states that the wear time is not as long as a normal polish so no one should be surprised.

All in all I LOVE Dovima and can't wait to try more polishes from this collection. Posh look truly spectacular!

Zoya Autumn

Zoya Autumn is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Autumn is the copper polish of my dreams! No other company does micro shimmer as well as Zoya and this copper polish loaded with gold flecks is a real show stopper. The first coat is patchy but everything looks magically perfect by the second coat. Truly gorgeous!

Color Club Gold Struck

I won a BirchBox subscription last year & that's how I picked up a mini Color Club Gold Struck, a Birchbox exclusive. I didn't like this one the first night I applied it, but it grew on me over the next few days. I got several compliments and decided that the palest of gold shade actually worked well with my skin tone.
The formula is good but like all chrome metallics, you have to be careful about your brushstrokes. So eye-catching that I may have to pick up a full sized bottle!

Zoya Hudson



Zoya Hudson is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.

Zoya Hudson is accurately described as a full coverage, purple orchid metallic with a silver shimmer. Great formula that covers in two coats, just a wait a minute or two between coats to avoid dragging. Fabulous polish for spring!

Zoya Brooklyn & Cosmo!

Glitter gradients are the best! Here I started with Zoya Brooklyn and then added a bit of Zoya Cosmo starting at the base of my nails. This look reminds of a gorgeous jewel encrusted ball gown, something you could wear on the red carpet; I love it!

Zoya Brooklyn

Zoya Brooklyn is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.

I love Zoya & metallic polishes but Brooklyn is not going to work for me. The formula is thin, streaky, & full of brushstrokes. The color looks terrible with my skin tone & the finish seems very dated to me. I'll be passing this one along for sure. One of my least favorite Zoyas ever.

Zoya Cassedy

Zoya Cassedy is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection. It's described as a pewter metallic & that is quite accurate. Sometimes look like a steely blue & sometimes leans a bit green. Great formula that reminds me of Zoya Edyta. Unique color that any metallic polish lover should pick up for their collection.

Zoya Giovanna

Zoya Giovanna is from the new Satins - Fall 2013 collection.It's a lovely emerald green shimmer that applies easily in two coats. Very pretty but I don't seem to be interested in shimmers these days so I'll pass this along to a friend.

Zoya Neve

Zoya Neve is from the new Satins - Fall 2013 collection. Neve is a slightly prurple leaning blue metallinc chimmer polish. I had some problems with the polish dragging if I went over it more than once & you have to be careful of brush strokes. On the plus side it looks good in two coats and dries very quickly. A perfectly fine polish but I'm not in love with the color so I'll be passing this one on to a friend.

Zoya Channing

Zoya Channing is from the new Satins - Fall 2013 collection. It's a rusty red metallic foil with fantastic coverage. You could probably get away with one coat if you're careful! I used two coats here & a topcoat. Great fall polish!
