Are you ready for a little afternoon delight? I’m talking Zoya Delight, you pervs! The Zoya Spring 2015 collection is a mix of candy-ish cremes and shimmers with a metallic turquoise flash. In the bottles, the shades are lickable, like a dish of Jordan Almonds. But how do they look on nails? Lets find out!
Formula & Application
Zoya nail polish is 5-Free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin & Camphor). Their signature Italian glass bottles have a tapered, shiny black plastic cap that rests comfortably between the thumb and index finger while polishing. The brush is short, round and medium in girth with flexible bristles that allow for ease of control.
This collection is divided down the middle with three shimmer shades and three cremes. The cremes are all a little thick and apply a bit streaky, so I needed three coats to get them opaque. The upside is they self level. The shimmers all have a metallic flash, so the consistency is thinner to suspend the flecks. They also needed three coats.
Zoya Daisy is a sunny yellow with turquoise flecks. The flecks look more green over the yellow and, to see them, you have to angle your nails.
Zoya Eden is a hot pink creme. It’s cool base color reminds me of Zoya Rooney, only Eden is darker and a bit warmer.
Zoya Leslie has a lavender base filled with turquoise flecks. The flash isn’t as apparent in this one but it’s definitely there and more visible in person. It definitely leans pink but not too much and the blue shimmer balances that out. To me, it’s like a warmer version of Zoya Julie.
Zoya Lillian is a blue power pastel. It has an aqua feel with a hint of green in its base. It is very similar to Chanel Riva, without the shimmer.
Zoya Rayne is a sky blue with turquoise flecks. The flash is more visible in this shade than the other two. It adds a high intensity sparkle to the overall look. For reference, the base is similar to Chanel Coco Blue, maybe a tad more green.
Zoya Tiana is a pistachio green creme. It was the most challenging formula to work with of the three cremes. If you have Zoya Neely, this is a brighter, less greyed/muted version.
Bottom Line: The collection, as a whole, is solid but Leslie and Rayne are the stars of this show. I normally shy away from warm purples but this one is very flattering. No lobster hands! Also, the flash is pretty spectacular in person, even if doesn’t translate as well on camera. The rest of the collection is okay but doesn’t really have that wow factor.
The Zoya Delight collection is coming soon to salons and spas nationwide, including ULTA stores and online at Zoya.com. Zoya nail polish retails for $9/ea.
