Zoya Natty Nail Lacquer

Zoya Natty Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “smoky deep steel blue.” It’s a subdued, smoky navy blue with a cream finish. Chanel Blue Rebel is very similar–perhaps a touch smokier. China Glaze First Mate is richer, less subdued. Rescue Beauty Lounge Dead Calm is bluer, less smoky.

Zoya Suri Nail Lacquer

Zoya Suri Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “royal purple metallic.” It’s a rich, royal purple with violet and amethyst micro-shimmer. I couldn’t recall anything from past reviews that compared that closely with this shade. China Glaze Fault Line has similar coloring, but it’s a crackle polish. Zoya Mimi would be the next closest, though it’s a bit more blue-based and has much larger shimmer. Do you have any dupe suggestions? I’d love to hear them!

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer

NARS TV Party Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a cream finish. It’s vibrant without being neon. Nails Inc. Porchester Place is a bit less orange, almost subdued in a way. Illamasqua Gamma is brighter. Zoya Jancyn is lighter. MAC Morange is darker and more red-toned.  It’s bright without being blindingly neon, and it’s not too dark.  It also doesn’t have strong red undertones, so it is a bit different than some other oranges I have in my stash.

NARS Superstar Nail Lacquer

NARS Superstar Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “teal.” It’s a dark, smoky blue with just a hint of teal (which is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail) and a cream finish. Essie Go Overboard is quite similar, though I’d say it leans a bit closer to teal with less blue. MAC Deep Sea is darker and greener. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is darker and more teal.

NARS Back Room Nail Lacquer

NARS Back Room Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black.” It’s a rich, deep dark black with a glossy finish. I know it’s going to sound bizarre, but I don’t have a lot of black cream polishes. MAC Nocturnelle is one of the few I have (and for some reason, I have a few of them). It’s not quite as dark and doesn’t dry down to the same naturally glossy finish. MAC Beyond Jealous is a tiny bit teal but mostly black. What’s your favorite black cream?

NARS New York Dolls Nail Lacquer

NARS New York Dolls Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as ” purple.” It’s a dark purple with a subdued quality to it, so it doesn’t have a strong red undertone, and it seems just barely blue-based–but it’s so subtle and changes depending on the lighting conditions. Illamasqua Faux Pas is closest inc olor, but it is lighter and had a rubberized finish. Zoya Mira is lighter and more red-toned. SpaRitual Illume is lighter, bluer-based. Orly Purple Pleather is cooler-toned and has a rubberized finish.
