Zoya Giovanna Nail Lacquer
Zoya Giovanna Nail Lacquer

Zoya Giovanna Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “emerald green metallic.” It’s a rich, vibrant green-leaning teal with metallic shimmer. It was opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. Dior Samba is similar. Zoya Zuza has a different finish, is lighter. Butter London Thames is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Mason Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “red violet metallic.” It’s a rich, metallic fuchsia-shimmered plummy red. It was opaque in two coats, and it applied smoothly and evenly. L’Oreal The Mystic’s Future is slightly purpler, less pink. Illamasqua Charisma is redder. Zoya Izzy is pinker. Zoya Carly is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Neve Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sapphire blue metallic.” It’s a rich, bluish-purple with violet, blue, and fuchsia micro-shimmer and a metallic finish. It was fully opaque after two coats of polish, and the consistency was just slightly on the thicker side. MAC Blue Gaze and MAC Breezy Blue are both creams. SpaRitual Blue Moon is less metallic. China Glaze Want My Bawdy is lighter, less blue. See comparison swatches.

All three had very slightly visible brush strokes, and the degree to which they’re noticeable depends on just how strong the light is when it hits the nail. If you’re very sensitive to them, I’d stay away, but if you don’t mind minor to moderate brush strokes, these are lovely. All three shades were very rich and decadent, and they had a lot of depth on the nail. I typically get a week of wear out of Zoya’s polish formula.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Wow, I’m so glad you swatched these because the first 2 looked so much darker in the bottles that I might have passed them up. Now i know I need them!

I’m wearing Giovanna right now and it is darker and greener than in the pictures. I’m guessing because of the different lighting.

Gorgeous swatches as always! These look amazing, but I’m putting myself on a nail polish ban since I have over 130+ bottles :'(

Huh? I just checked the photos, and they’re all Zoya bottle photos/swatches. Butter London Thames is mentioned as a dupe…

I really look forward to your nail polish swatches when you are hard pressed to come up with dupes and although I always keep reading even when I see the list of possible copy catters or copy catees, I wish that nail polish companies thought more out of the box.

Although I like all 3 of these colours, they aren’t original (as can be seen by the numerous dupes) and I even have dupes in my own stash.

Zoya… I love you but you can do better than this! C- from me
