Zoya Fall 2013 Cashmere Collection!

On the one hand - and you may already be well aware - dark colors are not my favorites.

On the other hand, I do love a perfect creme polish, and Zoya does that every time...so...while I remain slightly on the fence about a couple of the colors, the formulas are really flawless.

Shall we take a peek?

Livingston doesn't fall into the dark category at all. It's a pretty bright, almost cherry, red polish that applied flawlessly in two coats. All of the swatches are two coats with HK Girl topcoat. I own a literal handful of red polishes, so to me, this was a welcome addition. I wonder if it is an easily dupeable shade for red fans?

Pepper is a dark, almost maroon, red. This is a shade I am on the fence about, but it is unique in my collection as well. It was designed for Peter Som.

Next up is a dark, but very pretty, blue called Sailor. It coordinated really well with Sunshine, a Fall 2013 Pixie polish.

Hunter, the not so originally named green of the bunch, is described as "a dark sea green cream" according to the website, and it matched well with Chita.

Zoya also included two neutrals, and I, for one, am ALL ABOUT NEUTRALS right now. I was excited for Louise because I need a base for Cirque Espresso and was on the search for a teddy bear chocolate brown. Louise has ended my search!

And lastly, my favorite of the bunch, a smoky taupe called Flynn. I think I'll get the most use out of this one:

It is a good mix of shades for Fall and a few uniques for my collection! I am so delighted to have had the chance to review for Zoya and look forward to more! Find them on Zoya.com.
