Zoya Wicked Collection
Nail Lacquers:: Edyta, Julieanne, Cheryl

Oh… So… Wicked

Zoya Wicked Collection ($36.00 for all 6, or $7 each) is one of two fall collections from Zoya.  It contains six shades:
Edyta (complex mixture of gold, olive, blue-green, and smoky grey with a sparkling metallic finish), Julieanne (unique purple sparkles with gold, peach, and yellow-green duochrome in a dark blue-purple base), Cheryl (smoky brown base completely packed with metallic copper, gold, and mahogany metallic microglitter), Karina (cool medium crimson red with swirls of pink, gold, and red foil metallic glitter), Carrie Ann (light warm scarlet red with copper, gold and pink-red foil metallic glitter), Kym (antique copper base with gold, copper, and pink reflective metallic sparkles).

  • Edyta is a tarnished, deep green with gold and green micro-shimmer. At first glance, it seems similar to Nubar Verde, but the latter is significantly greener–much more forest green. Just two coats.
  • Julieanne is a deep violet purple with blue undertones and gold and glowing violet shimmer flecks. Two coats.
  • Cheryl is a darkened chocolate brown base with warmer, amber and copper shimmer. It looks very rich and luxe. Two coats.
  • Karina is a ruby red with flecks of scarlet and ruby shimmer–more blue-based. Two coats.
  • Carrie Ann is a brightened cherry red with fiery red shimmer–more orange-based. Two coats.
  • Kym is a pinked/mauvey brown with gold and bronze shimmer. Almost metallic. Two coats.

The formula is just as you’d expect from Zoya:  smooth, nicely pigmented, and dries down beautifully.  The colors are very true-to-bottle, and I had no issues with application whatsoever.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: Excellent pigmentation for all six shades, easy to apply, and none needed more than two coats for a smooth, opaque finish. If you see a color you like, I think you’ll be happy with it.

is this aka the dancing with the stars collection? All the names are female dancers from the show! I don’t know if that was on purpose or not but it seems too coincidental for it NOT to be.

Wow!!! After you’ve been putting up Zoya ALL of the polishes are on my wishlist. Is there a store you can purchase it at, rather than online?

Well with names like Carrie Ann, Kym, (spelt with a y instead of an i) and Edyta, which aren’t so common, it seems like they did name it after DWTS

are these all named for dancing with the stars characterS? ahh as much as i am unimpressed with karina on the show, i sure do love her on nails!

Reminds me of the n/ls that will come out with the MAC Venomous Villains collection.
Wicked.. and villains.. There’s a theme here.. apparently we are supposed to be bad this fall.

I am really loving Edyta – never thought I would really be attracted to a color like this, so I am pleasantly surprised. 🙂 Thanks for sharing these swatches because all of them are beautiful!

Agreed I can’t find Zoya in the KW area. T-T I would like to get Edyta, Julieanne and maybe Cheryl. Shadowy Lady did you get them from the TBBS?

Karina reminds me of the OPI Muchness shade from Alice in Wonderland lunch.

Christine, how was removal on these? I love them (I probably would only get one of the reds, but I’m DROOLING over the first three), but I worry about these sparkly polishes being a pain to take off because I change my manis almost daily.

Hey BeckBeck,

I didn’t have any issues. These felt and acted more like your average shimmer polish in removal – definitely not the more painstaking process of true glitter polishes.

Loving Julianne! I’ve never tried Zoya nail polishes — do you find this formula to be really gritty? I’m always wary of glittery shades.

Edyta is way prettier than Nubar’s Verde,at least from your swatches. Edyta and Cheryl are my two choices from this group. The others are just bleh,exception for the purple one,because I love purple.
