Zoya Diva Collection NYFW Fall 2012

Today I have for you the second of Zoya's three Fall collections. This is the Diva collection inspired by New York Fashion Week. It contains four shimmery metallic colors and two sparkle filled metallic colors. I'm really having a hard time picking favorites here. Take a look at the swatches below and let me know which ones you like the best!


Elisa
A bright fire engine shimmery red. It darkens slightly toward the edges of the nail and appears to glow in the center. This is very pigmented, practically opaque in one coat, but I ended up used two coats for even coverage. Shown here with no top coat...

Number of coats: 2
Top Coat: No

Suri
A metallic purple shimmer. I'm so excited the photographs turned out the true color as it appeared blue on my camera screen. This is a gorgeous, rich color. Again, two coats for full coverage. Great formula and easy application. No top coat in the photos...

Song
A bright blue metallic shimmer. This is somewhat different than the other shimmers in the collection because it has tiny light blue flecks suspended in it. They add a fun touch to the shimmer formula. This is also two coats for full coverage and no top coat in the photos...

Ray
A dark forest green shimmer. This color combined with the red Elisa would certainly make for some lovely winter holiday manicures. This is not as dense or pigmented as the other three polishes, but it is still enough to provide full coverage in two coats. This again is with no top coat as they are shiny enough on their own...

FeiFei
I'm not even going to attempt to define this color. Zoya calls it "magic blue foil sparkle metallic," but even with all those adjectives it is not descriptive enough. It is a periwinkle blue base packed with gold, purple, blue and holo little flecks. I'm absolutely crazy about colors like this because they give the bright sparkly punch of a glitter without the pain of glitter removal. It was opaque in two coats in real life, but I used three coats for the swatches here because the camera tends to bring out every little flaw. These are with a top coat...




I also snapped a few photos outside. It looks completely different and even I had a hard time believing this was the same polish. Maybe I shouldn't trust my camera? Just look at how sparkly and shiny it is in the sunlight...

Daul
This polish is similar to FeiFei. Zoya describes it as "magic violet foil sparkle metallic." It is a violet base packed with gold flecks. There is so much of the gold in it that as certain angles you can barely see the purple base. I have other purple with gold fleck polishes in my collection, but this is by far the most sparkly and gold filed one. This is three coats plus a top coat...




Again, it looks completely different outside.  You can see more of the purple base and just look at how sparkly it is. Hard to believe it is the same polish. Just to warn you though, the majority of the time it appears as the photos above, not the photos below...
