Zoya, Fall 2012: DIVA Collection, Swatches

August 16, 2012

Zoya’s new metallic collection, for fall 2012, DIVA, is a stunner.  Bold, beautiful colors — 4 in their signature metallic/shimmer formula and 2 in a light-catching shimmer/glitter formula.

.

Let’s have a look at some swatches, shall we? :)

Elisa is a very festive red.  Bright, beautiful and nearly opaque in one coat.  The above photo, however, is two coats.

“Bright, shining medium crimson red with subtle gold shimmer and a glowing metallic finish. The smooth, glowy metallic finish gives this bright red an extra kick.”  Zoya Website

Purple-lovers will adore Suri.

“Medium blue-toned purple with delicate red and blue shimmer and a smooth metallic finish. For a perfect royal purple nail with interesting red and blue sparkle detail.”  Zoya Website

.

 

.

Pictured above, you can see lovely Suri on all four nails and layered on top of my index and middle fingers, shimmery Daul.  They make a lovely pair, no?

Above we have pinky-purple Daul all on her own.  The index and middle fingers have one coat and the ring and pinky fingers have two coats.

“A medium red-toned purple base with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle. The shiny gold sparkle makes this shimmering purple polish extra bright and lively.”  Zoya Website

Song is an electric blue stunner.

“Bold, vibrant medium primary blue with silver and blue glittery metallic sparkle. A very vibrant blue with a glittery finish that’s smoother than traditional chunky glitter.”  Zoya Website

.

.

Above, you can see Song paired with FeiFei.  Each nail has 2 coats of Song and the index and middle fingers have 2 coats of FeiFei layered on top.

Here we have the amorous FeiFei on her own.  I’ve layered the nails progressively — index finger has 1 coat of polish, the middle finger has 2 coats, ring finger has 3 coats and pinky has 4 coats.

“A medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue and pink iridescent metallic sparkle. A truly unique sparkling iridescent blue that adds a magical look to the nails.”  Zoya Website

.

 

.

Last, we have Raywhich is quite a bit more sheer than the other shades.  You’ll definitely need two good coats to reach opacity.

“Dark blackened pine green with smooth, delicate silver and green frost shimmer. A dark, smoky nail color balanced by a bit of shimmer for a softer effect.”  Zoya Website

.

 

.

Which shades look good to you, beauties?!  Song, FeiFei and Daul are my favorites.

Stay tuned: swatches of the DESIGNER Collection are coming up soon!

Cheers, honeys!

  1. They all look good, but Song is positively amazing on your skin tone! That’s my favorite one on **you**. :-D Out of this set, I’ve only bought FeiFei and Daul — love them both. Great post!

  2. Great colors for fall! Love that Daul, sooo pretty!
