Zoya sent me the gorgeous 2017 holiday Party Girls collection for review. As usual, this collection is filled with 12 jewel tone polishes that will be perfect for any holiday occasion.
Not as usual, this collection was sent in the most luxe packaging! I received a sturdy velvet box with the polishes nestled inside. It also came with a swatch card listing the polish names. I am not sure if this comes automatically when you order the whole collection from the site, or if you can get the box without ordering this specific collection. There was no info, but this was quite the pleasant surprise to unbox. Check it out!
Oh, yeah...see that rogue cat hair? Want to see where it came from?
I showed you my sweet kittens a couple weeks ago in a lipstick swatch post. Seth (and Roman, behind him - see him sleeping?) is into everything I do, including my polish.
Alright, let's get to the polishes! I decided to show you on a swatch stick because my nails are a mess right now!
Nadia - This is a gorgeous sheer based polish loaded with gold micro glitters and shimmer. It can be worn alone, shown here in two coats, or as a single coat over another color.
Solstice - Described as a "sparkling persimmon orange," but appeared a sparkly cranberry to me. Pretty, though.
Tawny - Zoya describes this as a coppery rose. I see that, but I also see mud. I am not sure this would look good on my pale skintone, but might be pretty for others.
Ming - Ming is a perfect candy apple red that applies in one coat. If you don't already have your perfect red (mine is Zoya Livingston or Zoya Hannah), this might just be it.
Fallon - Call me bitter, but Fallon reminds me of the first try that an indie polish line produces. It is magenta, streaky, and not special.
Sheri - Sheri is a beautiful creme that is a tad richer and deeper than Ming. Very pretty!
Kelsey - Aaah, back to the cremes that Zoya does so well! Kelsey is a bright pink one coat creme. I'm currently obsessed with Kelsea Ballerini, so this will be in rotation. You know I love my pink Zoyas.
Danielle - This one was a surprise for me! Danielle is a pretty blurple creme that applies perfectly in just one coat.
Delany - Delany is Fallon's purple sister. It is a streaky nightmare. No idea how this one passed Zoya QC.
Landon - Such a fun purple! I love the muted quality of this shade. It is also a perfect one coater.
Isadora - I didn't like Isadora as I was using it, but it dries into a streak free, shimmery, lovely polish. I wore this one as a full mani once already.
Blake - Blake reminds me of SinfulColors Prosecco, it has gorgeous gold shimmer in an unexpected base color. I cannot wait to use this as the base for a galaxy mani.
That is it for now! I will swatch these in due time but wanted to give you a look and quick review. My picks are Ming, Danielle, and Blake.
