I am excited to share this post with you! Zoya sent me both the Fall 2013 Satin and Cashmere collections to show you - and they do not disappoint!
First, let me show you the Satin collection, which is a mix of 5 metallicy polishes and a gold topper. We will see the cremes tomorrow for a full on Zya weekend.
Zoya Mason is a "exciting red violet or "Fandango Pink" metallic" according to the website. This is two coats with HK Girl as topcoat.
This is clearly my fave of the Satins. I love that the finish is quite smooth and well, satiny, as opposed to a streaky metallic look. I despise streaky finished polishes!
Giovanna was originally made for fashion designer Zang Toli and is the perfect It Color of emerald, thanks to (OMG I LOVE HER!) Kate Middleton and her uber, royal fashionableness. Is that even a word?! According to this spell check, no. But it should be, don't you think?
Close up, slightly blurry On Purpose to show the depth of this color:
Neve was also created for Toi and is a pretty sapphire blue. This is two coats, flawless, and it just glows under the flash:
The close up shows the purple/blue flecks that reflect so well!
Next up is Channing, a stunning reddish copper. Named after Channing Tatum because he is scorching? Probably, right?
Channing is the perfect Thanksgiving color, I am really loving the rust colors coming out for this fall. This is two coats, HK Girl topcoat, and flowed really well across the nail.
The last solid color Satin polish is Claudine:
I feel like this is the brush strokiest of them all. The gray color is described as "a striking dark meteorite gray metallic" on the website, and that is pretty accurate:
Lastly, they included a gold topper:
Maria-Louisa is a packed gold topper, but because it is SO packed with glitter, the base is slightly thick. My swatches show just one coat of ML over the various bases. You definitely only need one coat:
You can find Zoya polishes on their site HERE for more info. Prices run $8-9 and they do have some good promos, especially around the back to school time.
