Zoya Tinlsey Nail Lacquer

Zoya Tinlsey Nail Lacquer

Zoya Tinlsey Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, rose gold foil metallic.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark pink base color with metallic, coppery-gold shimmer. Zoya Rica was the only shade that I could think of that was similar, and it is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches.

Tinsley was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was some faint sheerness throughout. You could see the visible nail line coming through at certain angles (in particular, it is noticeble in photos from further away). The formula was good, though, as it wasn’t too thick or too thin, flowed well across the nail with even coverage and no streakingn or bubbling. It dried down slightly faster than the average polish, and there were no issues with visible brush strokes. I normally get a week of wear with Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer

Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer

Zoya Rikki Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, fern green foil metallic.” It’s a sumbdued, medium green with almost cool undertones paired with muted, golden shimmer. It has a foiled, metallic finish. China Glaze Unpredictable is metallic but also a duochrome so it flashes from green to bluish-teal. Zoya Apple is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Rikki was opaque after applying two coats of the polish. The formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it was easy to work with and apply without encountering streaking, bubbling, or the polish pooling along the free edge of the nail. It dries faster than the average polish and has a noticeble shine even when it is fully dried, but a top coat will make it sing. The metallic finish didn’t leave behind any visible brush strokes and is very reflective. I normally get a week of wear with Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Zoya Kerry Nail Lacquer

Zoya Kerry Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, yellow gold foil metallic.” It’s a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with a metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish. NARS Gold Fingers is a bit more orange-toned. ORLY Flare is similar but a touch more molten/darker. China Glaze Lighthouse is yellower. China Glaze Champagne Bubbles is yellower, less shimmery. Zoya Solange is lighter, yellower, and has a Pixie Dust finish. See comparison swatches.

It was mostly opaque after two coats, but there was a faint hint of visible nail line at certain angles in brighter light (and it was more apparent on some nails than others). The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so the polish flowed well across the nail without streaking, bubbling, or pooling along the edges. I didn’t have any visible brush strokes, and the polish dried down a bit faster than average.

Zoya Bobbi Nail Lacquer

Zoya Bobbi Nail Lacquer

Zoya Bobbi Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-coverage, hot magenta pink foil metallic.” It’s a bright fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a foil finish. China Glaze 108 Degrees is less metallic/foil-like. China Glaze Endurance is darker, not as metallic. Essie Super Bossa Nova is bolder, brighter, and not metallic. Zoya Izzy is darker, less metallic. See comparison swatches here.

Zoya has such a fabulous metallic formula! Seriously, they’re so easy to apply and are very consistent overall in quality. Bobbi had opaque color coverage with two coats, and it dried down faster than the average polish and dried with a foiled sheen–some shine, but there’s a flatness to it that is just like tin foil. There were no visible brush strokes, and the consistency of the formula wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied fluidly and evenly without bubbling or pooling along the edges of the nail. I normally get a week of wear out of Zoya’s formula.

Zoya Hazel Nail Lacquer

Zoya Hazel Nail Lacquer

Zoya Hazel Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.” is described as a “full-coverage, blue green foil metallic.” This is a silvery-blue foil metallic with flakes of dirty gold in it. I don’t have anything quite like it, and the only polish that even was reminiscent of it was Zoya Crystal with is much bluer.  I always love when I come across a color that I haven’t see done before (or, even if only done a few times).

Hazel was fully opaque in two coats of polish, and the finish was metallic and foil-like.  The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it didn’t streak, pool, or bubble during application.  It was incredibly easy to apply, and the drying time was somewhat faster than average.  All in all, this was a superb polish and really Zoya at their best.  I normally get a week of wear out of Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
