Zoya Divas Collection for NYFW 2012 with Gloss Trio

This morning, I showed you the Designers Collection and now I have the Divas for you! I must admit that my finish of choice is creme, but I quite enjoyed their collection of metallics as well.


Zoya Designers and Divas Collection for NYFW 2012

Zoya Designers and Divas Collection for NYFW 2012

Zoya Gloss Trio: Paloma, Katherine and Frida

Zoya Divas: Elisa, Suri, Song, Ray, FeiFei and Daul


The first four (Elisa, Suri, Song and Ray) all had basically the same formula, smooth and easy - two coats for opacity. Actually, with medium heavy application Elisa, Suri and Song could be one-coaters, but I am a serial two-coater. The last two (FeiFei and Daul) are really something special...sort of a foil flaky metallic sparkle polish!

So let's get started!

-------------------------------------------

Elisa is an intense red with a metallic finish. Very glowy!

Suri is a bright royal purple with a metallic finish and what appears to be purple, blue and red shimmer.

Song is a bright royal blue metallic with what appears to be small blue flakes.

Ray is a forest green metallic with what looks to be a green or silver shimmer. This one actually went on more like a frost and did have a few brush strokes visible but not enough to distract from the overall look of it.

FeiFei and Daul are definitely the odd ones out in this collection and they are amazing!!!

FeiFei is really difficult to describe. It's a steel blue sparkle polish with gold, green, blue and silver flakes/shimmer and what looks to be pink/red/gold duo/multi-chrome flakes! It, like its sister Daul, goes on very sheer, but actually only needs two coats, which really surprised me.

Daul is a sparkle polish in a light purple base with gold foil flakes.

Daul is on my index and middle fingers and FeiFei is on my ring and pinky fingers...

And what do they look like layered over other polishes?  Well let's have a look...

What do you think of these? What are your "must haves" from this collection? I think my favorite look (so far) I've found with these is a toss up between the look of Paloma over FeiFei or FeiFei over Ray. Just AHHH-Mazing!

These are available at zoya.com  for $8.00 each or in the Divas Collection Sampler for $48.00. Be sure and "like" Zoya's Facebook page for special promotions! You can also follow them on Twitter for latest news and promos.

  2. Ray is the only one from this set that I don't LOVE. I'm debating between getting it anyway to have the whole set or skipping it. :)

    1. Pam, it was actually my least favorite until I layered FeiFei over it. Did you see the pic of that? I love it!

  3. Wow!! I don't own any Zoya's yet, but with this collection, I have to have it! I could do without Ray though. It really wasn't my favorite.

  8. Super photos of your swatches here! Best I have seen of this collection. A few years ago I would have bought the entire set...but I have sooo many polishes now I need to really be choosy. I love, love the red one big time. Red metallics will always grab my heart strings. I also like the purple one if I will be able to see the goodies it has in it and not just under the microscope and a really good eyeball. I am so not into Daul - it falls into the group of all those similar shades like Faye from last year despite this one is more complex. I never thought about using the 2 as over-lays to the others in this collection - great idea.

  10. These are amazing pics! Doesnt Daul look awesome over other colours! Particularly over Katherine, but some of the others too. That combo would also look awesome on a short manicure.

    FeiFei looks pretty over the cooler colours!
