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).
