Zoya Party Girls Winter 2017

The Zoya Party Girls Collection contains 12 polishes in creams, metallics, pearls, and a multi chrome. All of them were very easy to apply after one coat. My faves are Delaney, Danielle, Isadora, Nadia, and Fallon.

Blake needed up to two coats. Delaney and Isadora swatched evenly at one.

I don’t understand Zoya’s need to continously include pinks and reds in most of their collections this year.  Ming, Sheri, and Kelsey are so-so. However, I kept Sheri and Kelsey because they are rich and easy to apply.  Nadia is considered the topper, but it needs to be applied thinly. Tawny also looked beautiful as a topper over some of my darker shades. Creams were even and didn’t streak or leave a shadow.

I think the rest of the colors are very well thought out especially the shimmers and chromes.

Zoya Sophisticates Fall 2017

Zoya Sophisticates is a collection featuring 8 cream, 2 pearls, and 1 shimmer. I’ve had problems with collections like this thinking I was swatching the same shade multipule times. All the creams and shimmers swatched smoothly without streaking or leaving shadows. Hera, Padma, Yvonne, and Mona are my favorites. All polishes were swatched one coat. I’m going to group the swatches by color scheme.

When I first seen Hera, Padma, and Yvonne, I thought they were the same shades, but they are not.

Presley and Joni are ok. I’ve had colors like this from past collections but a little bit darker. Presley didn’t do much for my hands.

I always make it a point to keep clean shades like Mckenna and Beth in my collection.

I often don’t care for greens, but Gal and Tabitha are very pretty. At one thin coat, Gal makes a great topper.

Mona, Elaine, and Hadley are the vampiest in the group. Elaine and Hadley are the darkest shades I own and did not stain my nails.

The Sophisticates can be purchased as two separate sets ($60ec) or invidiually ($10).

Zoya Fall 2017 Lipsticks 😍

Aside from having amazing nail polishes, Zoya also has a line of lipsticks ($12). Zoya’s lipsticks are not full coverage and very hydrating. I feel they act more as a semi-opaque colored lip balm. In a way, the almost remind me of the Tarte Lipsurgences. The fall collection includes shades raging from nudes, berries, mauves, pinks, and a blue. The shades are safe enough to wear on top of liquid lipsticks without taking away from the color. They are all a cream formula with a satin finish.

Addie is the lightest and only nude in the collection, and is described as a pinky apricot nude.

 Maggie is a deep berry

 Layne is a dusty rose

Bristol is medium wine

  Lizzy is bolder and a deep fuschia

Lucky is the second bold shade described as a cool toned pink

Tommy is the bonus blue shade

My favorites are Addie, Maggie, and Layne. The overall shade ranges are very refreshing since every last lip color looks almost the same.
