I LOVE getting new nail polish but I HATE swatching it! It's so boring and all I want to do is create something interesting by stamping it, bejeweling it, dotting it, and/or sponging it. I try to be a good little nail blogger, but it's always my creative side that is itching to come out. What I'm saying is don't count on me for swatching the latest collections in the future... :-)
That being said I am so in love with the Zoya Fall 2013 Satins Collection! All of the colors are so regal and beautifully saturated and the collection comes with a glitter top coat! Seriously, what more could a girl want?
First up is Neve, a deep shimmery royal blue. I've mentioned several times before that I'm not a big fan of blue, but this one is a definite exception. Two coats. Below I am showing Neve with one coat of Maria Luisa, which is a copper-gold top coat.
Next is Mason, a to-die-for bright shimmery magenta. I am showing two coats here. Unfortunately, this color had trouble self-leveling as you can see from the photos. Below I am showing Mason with one coat of Maria Luisa dabbed on top.
Next is Claudine, which is a dark shimmery charcoal with the slightest hint of green. The formula is flawless and goes on smooth as glass! Below I am showing Claudine topped with one coat of Maria Luisa brushed over the top.
Next is Channing, a bright coppery orange. I love the color of this one, but like Mason it had a hard time self-leveling and it went on fairly streaky. Despite that I was able to get good coverage with two coats. Below I am showing Channing topped with one coat of Maria Luisa dabbed on.
Last, but certainly not least is Giovanna, a deep shimmery teal green. I was so enthralled with this color that I was unable to stop myself from adding embellishments before I had taken photos of Giovanna alone.
For this look I started out with two coats of Giovanna on each nail. I dabbed one coat of Maria Luisa on my pinky and stamped my index and middle fingers using Cheeky plate CH37 with Color Club Angel's Kiss. To finish it off I placed two small metal studs on both my ring finger and thumb.
What do you think of the Zoya Satins collection? What color is your favorite?
