Zoya Remy, Sansa, Yuna Nail Lacquers

Zoya Remy Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “indigo with copper and gold liquid metal.” It’s an inky, blackened navy blue with lighter blue and teal sparkle. It seems like the “copper and gold” turns into a lighter, bluish-teal with the blue polish over/mixed with it. This was so pigmented–it was pretty much opaque in one coat, but the swatches show two. It was slightly thin but not particularly problematic to apply. Marc Jacobs Beauty Blue Velvet (132) (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, smaller shimmer. Color Club First Looks (P) is darker, smaller shimmer. China Glaze Little Drummer Boy (LE, $7.50) is darker, smaller shimmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Zoya India, Teigen, Autumn Nail Lacquers

Zoya India Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, luxurious red with a gold liquid metallic shimmer.” It’s a deep, blackened reddish wine with gold sparkle that looks more like a mix of gold and copper, depending on the angle and lighting. It was fully opaque after two coats of polish, and it applied smoothly and evenly. I didn’t notice any brush strokes, but the consistency did run a little thick. It didn’t seem to impede application. Essie Toggle to the Top (P, $8.00) has much larger sparkle/glitter. Chanel Malice (LE, $27.00) is much darker with finer shimmer. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $10.00) is darker with finer shimmer. Illamasqua Charisma (P, $17.00) has finer shimmer. Dior Apparat (LE, $24.00) has finer shimmer. China Glaze Sugar Plums (LE, $7.50) is less shimmer, larger sparkle. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Zoya Alma, Harper, Jesy Nail Lacquers

Zoya’s summer collection, Bubbly, features six shades with holographic sparkle. I reviewed the first three shades here, and this post showcases the remaining three. I’m usually drawn to Zoya’s summer collection, because they have such a magical sparkle to them. This year was no exception in that regard, though opacity was lacking. Two shades were less pigmented than described, and they would need at least three coats or underwear to achieve full coverage. The formula was slightly thin but not watery or difficult to apply, and I had exceptionally good wear out of this finish from Zoya. (Keep in mind, however, that almost nothing chips on me.)
