Zoya – Ivanka – Sparkle Collection – Summer 2010

Friday, 16 April, 2010

Part of the Sparkle collection, this lushtastic green is simply to be envied when worn. The shot in the shade best captures Ivanka’s spirit until you see it in person. Sunlight washed it out, but to be honest, I think my little camera couldn’t hold up to its beauty when put in natural light. It’s truly one of the colors you’ve got to get out of this collection in addition to Mimi and Charla.

My pointer finger and middle finger really capture what Ivanka’s all about. The color and pop is always ON. It never stops and it lasted for a good week. The *only* chipping I had was on my right hand’s index finger…and it’s only because I filed my nail down. Other than that, wear was excellent!

Sunlight washed it out and showed my deficiencies in nail polish application. 😀 Nonetheless, one color I’m going to get a back-up of because I get the feeling I’m going to be wearing this a lot during the summer – either on my toes or on my nails when I’m not swatching.

Zoya – Mimi – Summer 2010 collection – Sparkle

Such a gorgeous shade of PURPLE! LOVE LOVE L O V E it. I swatched the whole collection, but I have to put it up…sorry for the delay. I get waylaid by my other colors. I promise they’ll all be up soon.

This shot best represents the true color of this polish. You can see the awesome flecks of gold glitter. Very subtle, but overall makes it’s such a beautiful color when worn.

The sun washes out the color a bit, but makes the glitter pop. It’s stunning, yes? YES.

Zoya – Jo

Happy early Easter. While I am off to Carmel to spend Easter lunch with my aunts, uncles and cousins I wanted to leave you with an Easter-y color that isn’t a pastel.

I now present you with…

Perfectly Easter without being obnoxious. I love this color. The silvery shimmer running through it keeps it from being a plain old not-quite-pastel blue. Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love it.

Zoya – Charla – Sparkle Collection, Summer 2010

Lovely color! I kept thinking of the ocean when I put this on. Sadly, my skin tone doesn’t like it on me. 🙁

Boo over cast days! Did my best to get what I could, but the shade and overcast are frighteningly similar.  Much as I loved this color, it’s not for me. I should’ve known better! However, I can still believe it’s a gorgeous, gorgeous color…just not on me.

I keep looking at this color and thinking, it’s the sister to Midori! I’m going to have to do a comparison swatch…it’s darker, edgier with a lovely golden shimmer. It warms it up enough but doesn’t detract from the coolness of the color – if it had been too warm it would look like green pewp on me.

And no it’s not like Midori – my bad! Midori is lighter and more golden…but still gorgeous. 🙂

I was having China  Glaze flashbacks when I put this on. This is suspiciously close (at least in color and shimmer) to CG’s Lasso My HeartOops, compared swatches and I’m wrong. This is richer, fuller…much prettier. I definitely prefer Zoya’s take on this.

Note on the formula – these were 3 coaters for me. 2 looked ok, but 3 really showed the true beauty of these babies…and look ma — NO BUBBLES! It dried fast and smooth.

Will be doing more Zoya colors during the week because I ordered quite a few when we got our tax return. 😉
