Zoya Zenith Collection

HEY THERE! Today I'm reviewing the gorgeous Zenith Collection by Zoya. I don't know about ya'll but I was WAY EXCITE when Zoya announced this collection. Check out my review, and a somethin' somethin' for you being awesome at the end!

Zoya Seraphina is a "Polaris silver metallic". I really like this polish, I thought I was going to hate in actually! I'm not usually a fan of silver polish on me, but this one is different, I think it's because of the tiny glitters and not a solid metallic. I honestly would even be alright with a sheer one coat on my nail. What? Did I just say that? haha

I did 3 coats of Zoya Seraphina, no top coat. I probably should of done a 4th? It didn't give me any issues at all. The application was smooth and the dry time was great.

Zoya Belinda is a "cosmic purple metallic". This polish was originally designed for designer Zang Toi for Autumn/Winter 2013. I'm glad they released this out of the set because it's GORGEOUS! It's a deep, royal purple that comes to life with purple and pink shimmer when the sun hits it. I think I have a thing for dark purples now haha.

I did 2 coats of Belinda, no top coat. The application was great and it had great coverage. I think this was the easiest to apply out of the entire set. The dry time was great. No complaints here!

Zoya Cassedy is a "celestial pewter metallic". I think this is a weird color, but in a good way of course. I've always considered pewter to be more on the brown/copper side. This is kind of a sage-y green color. I like it! I don't think I like how it looks on me haha, undecided.

I did 2 coats of Cassedy, no top coat. I think it would of taken more coats but it seems like the bottle I got was shipped to me partialy open? When I opened it there was polish on the cap and it was about 90% full :-\ So I think the consistency of the polish was a little off, it was a bit goopy, probably needs some thinner. This is the only time that has happened to me in my over 100+ collection of Zoyas - so if you've never ordered don't let that scare you off! The dry time, however, was good and didn't give me any issues.

Zoya Dream is a "deep space blue with holographic glitter". Does anyone know anyone name Dream? Haha, I had to ask. This one is my favorite. If you've been around for a bit, that shouldn't surprise you :P  What's not to love about this buildable jelly with holo microflakies?!


I did 3 coats of Dream, no top coat. The application was great, it didn't give me any issues and it was easy to build up in layers. I was kind of shocked by the dry time, in a good way. I guess I have some idea in my mind that the majority of jelly polishes take awhile to dry between coats. This one dried quick for each layer. No wet nails for hours haha :] YAY!

Zoya Payton

Zoya Payton is a "galactic cranberry with holographic glitter". Dream's red-ish twin! This is a very deep cranberry jelly and it's awesome. The holo microflakies are identicle to the ones in Dream, which is a total win.


I did 3 coats of Payton, no top coat. I could of gotten away with 2 coats but I had some uneven spots here and there. Like dream, the application and dry time was perfect for a jelly polish. :]


OH! And you gotta see this:

Ummmm. Yes, please. Holo sparkle heaven!

Last but not least is Mosheen, an "astro ice blue topper, great for layering over other hues". This was originally in the Aqua Di Lara NYFW set from earlier this year. Anything with iridescent glitter is a must have for me. I feel like this is one of the more unique polishes Zoya has came out with, definitely out of their norm!

I did 1 coat of Mosheen over Belinda. No issues with application, the glitter came out great and there was no need for swirling or fishing. Dry time was right on point. OH HAPPY DAY!

  4. only in the last few years have My nails been long, and strong, enough to polish on a regular basis. I have health problems that have had Me under for surgeries and all kinds of things over the last decade or so. I am an Animal Mother and do foster and rescue out of My own pocket. I also am a Psychic Medium and do readings to help Animals in need. I'm also a Trekkie with My own ship. it is a strictly Veterinarian ship. we ONLY help the animals. not humans. this is because humans have a voice. Animals need us to be theirs. I go to the local Star Trek convention every year and do readings there for the animals as well. Having a new bottle of nail polish would really make My day. especially since I cannot afford it that often. usually nothing over 2 bucks a bottle. this would just make My little kitty heart purr with delight and joy if I won this. and blue is My fave color. any shade of blue. ^_^ this won't be the last time I enter one of these, but it is My first for something like this. ^_^
