ZOYA: Fall 2012 NYFW Diva Collection Swatches

Pin It Here is the 2nd part of the 3 part Zoya Fall Collections, the Diva metallics!

Zoya Fall 2012 Diva Collection

Swatches, sponge gradients and a comparison after the jump :]

Zoya Elisa, Zoya Suri and Zoya Song

Zoya Elisa

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:

Rekha and Elisa play reall well together as you can see from the picture above! :]

Zoya Suri

Zoya Suri is so pretty! A "medium toned purple with delicate red and blue shimmer and a smooth metallic finish". The shimmer comes across pretty well on the nail than I expected:

I did 2 coats of Suri it was  very smooth application and it was very smooth looking on the nail. Does this remind anyone of a grape Fanta can? Haha Just me? Ok.

Zoya Song

This might be my favorite from this collection, well MAYBE... It's a toss up haha. This is an AWESOME blue polish! "Bold vibrant medium primary blue with silvery and blue glittery metallic sparkle". The minute I put this on "HOLY SPARKLE!" was the first thing I said. Check out this shot:

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

Zoya Ray

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!

Zoya FeiFei

Zoya FeiFei

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 FeiFei
Above 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!

Zoya Daul

Oh Zoya Daul, how gorgeous are you!? Daul has to be the most glitzy polish out of all the Diva Collection. A "medium red-toned purple base with heavy purple and gold iridescent metallic sparkle. Like I said earlier, about FeiFei, When Zoya does awesome gold metallic gold sparkle, Zoya DOES awesome gold metallic sparkle. And they did it again. No issues with formula or drying again, but I would also layer this one too instead of building it up, above is 3 coats.

Zoya Monica with Zoya Daul and Suri

Here is Daul and Suri (from above) sponged over Zoya Monica. So pretty! :]

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

Zoya Faye (left) and Zoya Daul (right)

As you can see in the bottle, they don't look much alike (thank God hahaha).

Zoya Faye (pointer and ring) VS Zoya Daul (Middle and pinky)

Clearly they don't look anything alike haha. They both DO have the heavy gold sparkle, which is gorgeous and I love ;] Faye is a lot more pink and Daul is a lot more purple.

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!
