Zoya Fall 2012 Diva Collection
Swatches, sponge gradients and a comparison after the jump :]
Zoya Elisa, Zoya Suri and Zoya Song
Zoya Elisa is a "bright shining crimson red with subtle gold shimmer with a glowing metallic finish". This is a great sparkly red, Rekha's (from the Designer Collection) shiny sister! I like this polish because it has some sparkle without being overkill in the shimmer/glitter department. I did 2 coats and the formula was great as always.
Here, I sponged my tips with Elisa over Rekha:

See all those blue and silver sparkles? I wish I could of photographed how great and sparkly this was in the sun! SO SO pretty. I did 2 coats and everything was good to go :]
Zoya Ray, Zoya FeiFei and Zoya Daul
Can we talk about one of my favorite polish colors? Dark greens. I LOVE dark greens! This one is awesome, SO awesome! Ray is a "dark blackened pine green with smooth delicate green frost shimmer". I think the shimmer really makes this polish for me. In comparison to the other polishes, this one did come of a bit more frosty than the others, but you couldn't see brush strokes too bad. It took 2 coats and here I sponged Ray over Zoya Evvie:

Eeeps, I didn't realize how messy that sponge job was, oh well good enough ;] haha you can really see the shimmer here!
I think most people were most excited over FeiFei, I was haha. I was pretty shocked how gorgeous this was. When Zoya does awesome gold metallic gold sparkle, Zoya DOES awesome gold metallic sparkle. "Truly unique" is what Zoya calls this polish and I can't agree more. Zoya FeiFei is a "medium steel blue base with heavy gold, blue, and pink iridescent metallic sparkle". I did 3 coats of FeiFei. I had no application or drying issues but, next time I think I'll layer it over a similar color.
Zoya Natty and FeiFeiAbove I sponged Zoya FeiFei over Zoya Natty. I think this is one of my favorite sponge gradients out of the ones I've done with the Zoya Fall Collections polishes. If you haven't done this combo yet - do it! It's 100x prettier in person!

I was wondering, and I remember people questioning, how Daul compares to Zoya Faye:

You can find the Zoya Diva Collection and the other parts to the collection, here. Each Zoya polish retails for $8/bottle or $48/6 Designer/Diva collection and $24 for the Gloss trio. You can find my review and swatches of the Designer Collection, here.
Hope you guys have a great weekend and I hope you enjoyed these swatches. I'm sorry they're kind of delayed :[ Moving and nail breaks put a bump in my swatching schedule! I will have the Gloss Collection coming up for you soon :]
Have an awesome day!
