Zoya – Utopia Winter 2007 Collection – Akyra Review, Swatch, & Product Photo

Zoya's Akyra (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is a gorgeous muted teal color. I kind of wish for a brighter, bolder teal, but I think this one is excellent because it's very wearable. It also looks great with both cool and warm skintones from what I've found, which is a definite plus. It has great...

Zoya – Utopia Winter 2007 Collection – Irene Review, Swatch, & Product Photo

Zoya's Irene (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is a gorgeous gold-yellow-geren.  It reminds me a bit of a more green Old Gold pigment by MAC, only in nail polish form.

Zoya's Juno (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is such a gorgeous royal purple-violet shade. It's truly a standout color in its brightness, but the tone of it is absolutely divine. I love the subtle shimmer that really sets off the violet hue. Like the other Utopia polishes, this one has great...

Zoya's Tama (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) has to be my favorite out of the six new shades launched for their Utopia collection.

Zoya's Kamilah (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is the most gorgeous cherry red, and I can't wait to sport this when Christmas comes closer.

Zoya's Austine (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is a very gorgeous gold with warm undertones of bronze with silver shimmer. It's a bit metallic in appearance, which is always fun (when you tire of gunmetal gray, as lovely as it is, go opposite with this color!) for the upcoming holiday season. I...
