Hi girls, how are you? May be you would think I am mad to suddenly swatch an old collection of Zoya from nowhere. I know it may be uncalled since these polishes released 2 years back. Yes, and that’s exactly the age of my polishes too lying in my stash. These were brutally ignored and unused. Suddenly something struck last week and I swatched Zoya Carter. I was so much in love with it that I hated myself for not using them for so long. I got addicted to these Pixies and finished all swatches in a week straight.
So, with all guilt in heart for not sharing before; I have ‘Zoya Carter’. I am taking a deep breath and a pause as I write this because I am short of words to explain this correct. Let me try. This is the most bold royal purple I have seen. The color may not have done the magic alone. But the texture and magenta shimmers peeping from inside the polish take it to the top.
There is royalness( I don’t know if it’s a word) and elegance exuding out of the polish. The magenta and purple bling along with the gritty texture is a super combination. It looked sheer since it’s full of glitters and shimmers only but I could achieve opaque look in usual 2 coats.
Next is ‘ Zoya Solange’ which is gold yellow textured polish. I am confused if I should say this is ‘Gold Yellow’ or ‘Yellow Gold’!. It is totally gold in color but not very saturated. It leans towards yellow more than orange. It is a different gold undoubtedly. If you buy 20 Gold Polish randomly from best brands; it is very unlikely something will be near to it.
Color wise it is a light gold, more of yellow gold. It is full of gold sparkle. I did not apply any top coat on it. It was opaque in 2 coats.
Next is ‘Zoya Sunshine’ which is like Sapphire Blue. It is a dusty royal blue if I can say so, with a lot of silver shimmer. It looks like a starry night sky in real sense.
There is no Top Coat used and it was opaque in 2 coats. I am thinking now, may be one was good enough too.
Last up is ‘Zoya Dhara’ which is my favourite. Actually there is tough competition between Zoya Carter and Dhara. I love both equally, I can’t pick one. Dhara is royal coppery orange in colour. It has all the charm and richness packed in it.
It has orange, red and gold shimmer in it. It looks like a Diva of polishes. I swatched it without top coat and it was opaque in 2 coats.
Overall, these are gems that I had in my stash for so long and I kept missing them. I absolutely love them.
