Zoya Dream Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep space blue halo.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark blue with an assortment of sparkle and shimmer, both in color and in size. The consistency is not quite watery, but it’s thinner, and with two coats, I still had some visible nail line. Sometimes I noticed it, other times it seemed opaque, but it depended on the lighting and angle. I didn’t have any blue nail lacquers that were similar, because the composition of the shimmer/sparkle in Dream was missing from other blues I’ve reviewed previously.

Mosheen Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “astro ice blue topper.” It’s an iridescent layering top coat filled with bar glitter that goes from blue to green to pink, bits of copper, purple, and blue sparkle. This is described as a layering product, so while it can be worn however you like, it is designed to be applied over your favorite polish. For swatches, I layered it over Dream. It had good layering coverage in one coat (which is what I applied over Dream), and it has a cool look when applied as two coats by itself. It appears very wintry, because it has a very light coloring when applied on the nail alone. It goes on mostly even but you may need to push a few bits into place. Not a dupe really, but Zoya Maisie has a shifting flake glitter in it, which did remind me of this, but it is definitely more dominantly green-to-blue shift. Zoya Electra has larger bar glitter, and the bar glitter tends to look silver half the time.

Payton Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “galactic cranberry halo.” It’s a rich, deep eggplant purple with cool, berry-pink undertones, and a mix of cranberry, copper, and violet shimmer and sparkle. After two coats, it was mostly opaque and appeared nearly full coverage most of the time, but when I held my nails away, you could see that it wasn’t fully opaque. The consistency was similar to Dream, so it was thinner and not quite watery, but a part of me wanted to call it watery. It applied evenly and easily, and it had a soft shine to its natural dry down. Urban Decay Vice is similar in color but lacks the sparkle and slight shift. Chanel Taboo is darker, purpler, less sparkly. See comparison swatches.

I typically get a week of wear out of Zoya’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping. These shades will debut October 1st! 🙂

I LOVE your description of Payton, and seeing it on shows how beautiful it is.
I knew I would have to get Mosheen since sparkly topcoats draw me like a moth to the flame. I also like how Dream has “an assortment of sparkle and shimmer, both in color and in size”, it looks gorgeous in the bottle but a bit light on the nail to truly look like “deep space”. Anyway, these will all be great for the upcoming holiday season!

I still don’t know what a “holo” is can someone please enlighten me?

I think these are “halo,” which I don’t really know what that translates to, but holo is short of holographic, so it’s like a rainbow effect – you’ll see the color shift from red to orange to green to blue etc. They might have meant holographic, or maybe halo is a holographic effect in a circular shape? The finish is definitely similar to shades like Blaze, which are listed as holographics on Zoya’s site.

Oops I meant “halo” not holo. I LOVE holo’s! That’s why I’m confused. Hmmm, they don’t look like holo’s, do you see a halo effect in them that doesn’t translate in the photos?

These are scattered holos which means there are holographic particles but the finish isn’t like the linear holos we see from collections such as Color Club Halo Hues.

I LOVE Zoya polish!!! I was at Ulta today with my daughter and they had the new display behind the register for some reason but it looked so, so pretty. Obviously I will be going back and getting some of these. This is, without a doubt, my favorite nail polish!!!

Dream and Payton both look gorgeous, but I only need Payton for myself (not really into blue nail polish, except for very dark blue, if they did dark blue with the holo glitter in these, I would faint on the spot lol)). And I thought I got past the nail polish craving :-s Thank you for the swatches and reviews!
