REVIEW: Zoya Diva Metallic Collection NYFW 2012
Last time I showed you the Designer Cream Collection and today I will be reviewing the Diva Metallic Collection by Zoya! Though all six polishes in this collection have metallic/frosty finishes, I can tell you that the formulas are amazing and apply like cream polishes. I put close-ups of the polishes in the picture above for you to get a better idea of the texture/shine of each. Let’s take a look at the swatches on nails now!
First up is Elisa, a striking scarlet-red metallic. Elisa is a highly-pigmented polish with a flawless formula, and as I mentioned above, she applies like a cream polish. I used only one coat to achieve bottle color. This is a very powerful red to make a bold statement about the wearer!
Suri is a gorgeous cross between a deep violet and a midnight blue. She is much more purple in real life, but my camera tends to freak out whenever I photograph purple polishes. I used two coats in the photo above without a top coat to show you the shiny finish.
Song is definitely my favorite in this metallic collection! I wore her to my month-long vacation and the polish stayed on my nails for a good two weeks before chipping. She is a stunning royal blue metallic with a subtle silver sparkle. Two coats for opacity.
Ray is a frosty forest-green polish with a flawless shiny finish. The first two coats were a bit thin, so I needed to use three coats to finish up this manicure. This is a color for the fall collection, but I can see myself wearing this during the winter season to match the Christmas trees!
With such a unique name and look, FeiFei is the color that I was looking forward to trying out from this collection. She is not quite a frosty polish and not quite a metallic polish. FeiFei would be categorized as a foil polish. This dusty blue foil polish is packed with the perfect amount of sparkling flecks that shine beautifully in the light. I absolutely love it! I used four coats to cover up my nail lines.
Daul is the other foil polish in this collection. I also used four coats to achieve opacity, and I must mention that with Daul and FeiFei, careful application is required. Since the formula is on the thinner side, the polish can flood your cuticles if too much is used. Wait for each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next. Daul is a violet foil polish with stunning gold flecks. I noticed that this color is very close to being a dupe of Orly’s Oui.
