Zoya Nailpolish

Zoya recently had a promo of buy 3 nail colors and get 3 for free. So I decided to indulge because I had heard lots of good things about the longevity of the wear as well as the wide array of colors. I chose mostly warm shades to complement my warm skintone and shades that I thought would be good for spring and summer (except 1 dark, vampy shade that I will save for fall and winter). I just received them this week so I cannot comment on the wear time yet, but I did a quick, sloppy swatch of all 6 shades this morning.

This shade is called Mieko. describes it as: "A rosy pink with a touch of orange and tons of bold metallic gold shimmer. More glamorous than the usual pink!" I find it very similar to China Glaze Strawberry Fields, which I also own.

This is called Rica. Zoya calls it "Warm light coral with pink and orange tones and heavy gold metallic sparkle. An alternative to flat corals for when you want to shine."
This is called Colbie. Zoya describes it as "Blackened warm red with copper-orange undertones with rich metallic shimmer. A vampy red with depth for a dramatic look." Again, only two quick, messy coats.
This is Tiffany. Zoya calls it " Pink, peach and light copper toned foil particles accented by flecks of gold foil. A soft and feminine way to wear the foil finish, especially flattering for warm skin tones."

This is called Gloria. Zoya calls it "Rose, mauve-pink and magenta foil particles with gold and subtle red metallic accents. A delicate winter rose look made unique with a flashy foil finish."

This is called Lisa. Zoya describes it as "An iridescent combination of deep raspberry pink, bright candy apple red and subtle gold tones in a dazzling sparkle finish. A bright, festive red that sparkles so much it's almost jewelry."

Overall, I think they're beautiful. The bottle colors are very pretty and I think these colors will look fantastic once I take the time to do a full manicure and do 2-3 coats depending on the shade. I hear they will wear amazingly well with a base coat and top coat. I typically use Orly Bonder and Seche Vite so I will update once I see how these work.
