Zoya Diva Collection for Fall 2012! Review and swatches

Hello lovelies!

It's finally here! Last part of the Zoya Fall collection, saving best until last :) If you've missed swatches of the previous two collections, here they are: Gloss & Designer. I'm sorry it took me so long, I'm just slowly getting ready for my three-week holiday and many other things are taking my time away from blogging.

With no further ado, Zoya Diva Collection for Fall 2012!

Elisa - crimson red metallic. It's a gorgeous and vibrant shade of red that I absolutely adore! The shimmer is very subtle, nothing sparkly. It applied flawlessly and very easily. The pigmentation is great as well - almost opaque in one coat but I'm wearing two to get deeper shade and smooth finish.

Ray - pine green metallic. I think that this shade would be a bit better for holiday season as I like Christmas green shades :) It applied super easily, I only had to pay attention to brush strokes. As you can see the subtle shimmer in the polish causes streaks but only a little. Pigmentation is good as well, I'm wearing two coats.

Song - Egyptian blue metallic with a subtle sparkle. Absolutely fabulous shade of blue, the colour is vibrant and sparkly! I really like that the polish is not flat and contains the sparkly particles, it makes it so much interesting. I'm wearing just one coat and topcoat so pigmentation is fabulous! What's more - it dries fast and it didn't stain my nails.

Suri - royal purple metallic. Suri is beautiful dark grape purple shade with shimmer. The formula is good but a bit thicker and pigmentation is great. It is almost one coater but I've applied two coats. It also dried fast.

FeiFei - magic blue foil sparkle with golden green and blue glass fleck. It's an amazing and I dare to say unique shade and I really liked it. The formula is not as good as with the previous shades and the Designer collection. The drying time was average and I had little trouble while removing it as the tons of flecks were sticking to the nails and cuticles. This is two coats. One more thing I HAVE TO SAY - it stinks soo bad! It's like rotten eggs, it's horrible. Hopefully it's only my bottle but I just had to share it.

FeiFei over Song - the vibrant blue Song underneath the FeiFei created the perfect base shade, FeiFei is good for layering...

Daul - magic violet foil with gold foil flecks. This is the first polish I put on my nails and it was just gorgeous! It applied very easily and drying time was average. I'm wearing two coats which were enough for a full coverage.

It's really hard to say what collection is the best but I've always loved shimmers and foil flecked polishes so Diva collection wins. My favourite shades are Elisa and Daul, but also Song is exceptional. All polishes have great formula with exception of FeiFei that dries little longer and really stinks.

All three collections that Zoya created for Fall 2012 are really good, well done Zoya!

  1. It's really funny because FeiFei, is supposedly a dupe of OPI - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (from the new james bond collection), and when I swatched it, it smelt worse than i've ever smelt an OPI polish before! Maybe to make a polish unique, you need extra smelly colours lol.

    1. That's really interesting. The FeiFei polish smelt really horrible, I will be hesitant to use it again despite it being so pretty!
