Less Wicked, More Wonderful

Zoya Wonderful Collection ($36.00 for all 6, or $7 each) is second of two fall collections from Zoya. It contains six shades: Kelly (rich gray shade with soft purple and blue undertones), Stacy (dark raspberry creme with purple and wine undertones), Burke (soft, dusty light red mulberry with very subtle brick and mauve tones), Kristi (pure, true crisp medium red cream with no strong warm or cool undertones), Cola (warm light brown cream with strong terracotta undertones), Shawn (warm, mossy yellow-toned medium green cream with olive undertones).

  • Kelly is a smoky, grayish blue that looks stormy and smoky at the same time. It’s not gray, it’s not blue, it’s not purple – it’s some variation that includes all three. Two coats.
  • Stacy is a dark burgundy wine–very vampy and dark. I like that it still looks like a wine; it never looks so dark that you can’t distinguish it from black. Two coats.
  • Burke is a softened berry red. I’ve seen this look dustier in other swatches, but it comes out pretty red for me. Two coats.
  • Kristi is a bright pop of neutral cherry red. Very close to pure/true red. Two coats.
  • Cola is a red-toned medium-dark brown–kind of reminds me of what cola looks like when it stains a white shirt, ha.
  • Shawn is a dark, mossy green with yellow undertones. Two coats.

All six have a cream finish, so there is absolutely no shimmer or glitter in these.  They dry down to a slightly glossy finish, but I always finish with a top coat in a regular manicure, though.  I didn’t need more than two coats for crisp, opaque color, and each shade was a dream to apply–pigmented, smooth, and even.   There really isn’t anything to complain about — either you love the colors or you don’t, but the formula will not disappoint!  My must-haves from this collection would be Kelly and Shawn.

  • Product: 30/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 5/5
  • 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.

** I have no idea why my bottle looks so… smoky, LOL. It looked just fine when I swatched!

They’re all gorgeous but I feel like I *need* to have Kelly. I refuse to wear black polish because although it’s been considered chic, I feel like it’s a little too goth for me. I really love that it’s not a flat grey — it’s distinctive. I’ll look into buying a few… I do have a birthday on Saturday which gives me a good excuse to feed my addiction a little further! haha

Similar in color, but they definitely have different finishes. I don’t own Vamp, but based on swatches I’ve seen, it looks a little darker.

Hey Christine. Love the swatches. Are you goof to do the opi Swiss collection? It looks like a great collection. Thanks love your blog.

Have you noticed that the names of this collection and the other one shown earlier are all related to Dancing With The Stars. All of the names except “Cola” are DWTS former stars and pros names.

omg!! I NEED shawn and kelly!! LOL they are beautiful and I have become such a nail polish fanatic lately..idk why..maybe cuz it is the simplist beauty product that makes such a nice impact on your overall look..hmmmmm…..

Speaking again about “reds”, I love Stacy polish and I hate Burke and Kristi! As you can see, the same point of red of the burberry lipstick 😛

Love the colors!!! loved Kelly, Stacy and Cola. It’s great after 15 years of wearing makeup I still get excited with the new collections and colors, makeup is fun!!!

Hi, Christine! I’m sorry to bring up an old post but I was looking through the swatch gallery and I love the look of Cola – would you say the natural light shot or the flash shot is more descriptive of what Cola looks like IRL? Thanks heaps! <3
