Zoya Wishes: Holiday 2014 Review!

Let's continue the Zoya love with a peek at the Winter/Holiday 2014 collection called Wishes.  I love that Zoya didn't include a traditional green, red, or white in this collection.  In fact, it's quite the opposite featuring black, blue, and purple!

As you can see, there are 3 regular polishes and 3 Magical Pixie Dust polishes. The shades coordinate slightly, so I am going to post the regular then the Pixie that kind of matches.

First up, this is Willa, a creamy 2 coater black.  If you don't have a black staple in your collex, this may be The One. It has a thick enough consistency that it doesn't pool the cuticles or require clean up, and it's streak free and shiny in just two coats.

The matching Magical Pixie is called Imogen, a "black crystal" polish that is opaque in 2 coats.  I really love this one.

The purples in the collection are Haven, shown below, and Thea.  Haven is a pretty plum that looks lovely on every other skintone besides mine, LOL. It also photographs different in different lighting!  Here it is with flash:

And without flash. The pics without flash are more color accurate in my opinion.

Thea (and the blue Nori, coming up) and thinner in formula, more like jelly pixies, if that makes sense.  Thea needed 2 coats, but thicker coats than Imogen.  The shine is out of this world though, so pretty!

Lastly, the blues are Prim and Nori.  Prim is a gorgeous color but the brush strokes are visible in this metallic polish.  Be sure to take your time and paint straight lines!

Last but not least, Nori is a jelly Magical Pixie, requiring two thicker coats. It is worth the effort - Nori is stunning when it dries!

There you go! I have to say, Nori is my favorite with Imogen a close second. Zoya has a special knack of making me like colors that are out of my normal zone - never a bad thing!

You can find Zoya on Zoya.com and keep an eye out for upcoming holiday promos!
