Zoya Delight Collection: Swatches and Review with Nail Art and Comparisons

*These products are Cruelty Free 

Today I have the new Delight Collection from Zoya to show you - 3 cremes and 3 shimmers.  Before I even swatched them I had people contacting me for comparisons so I've included two of them at the end. You guys are way ahead of me! So come see my swatches and what I think about these after the jump.

Zoya Delight Collection

But first...some nail art! (Oh c'mon, you had to see that coming! They're perfect for Spring/Easter nail art.)

I did a quick gradient with Lillian and Taina as a base for random "spring nail art"...

Then some random "spring-inspired" nail art using all 6 Delight shades - finished it off with Zoya Matte Velvet Top Coat...

And, again using all 6 Delight shades, an Easter Egg-inspired mani...

Okay, now on to the swatches.

The Cremes: No issues with these at all. All 3 were nicely self-leveling. Creamy smooth application.

Eden - this one is a bright, nicely saturated cool-toned pink creme. Two coats with one coat of top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


Lillian - this one is a a powder blue pastel creme. Two coats with one coat of top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


Taina - this one is a bright pistachio green creme that leans warmer in artificial light and sun but much cooler and more of a cucumber hue in the shade. Two coats with one coat of top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


The Shimmers: No issues with any of these three either. The formula is a bit thinner than the cremes for Rayne and Leslie while Daisy's formula is a bit thicker. They are all 3 self-leveling and I had no issues. I did use 3 thin coats for Daisy to get an even finish because it was a bit thicker. No issues to report.

Daisy - this one is an aureolin yellow with blue-green shimmer. Three light coats with no top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


Leslie - this one is a light thistle lavender with blue shimmer. Two coats with no top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


Rayne - this one is light-to-medium sky blue with blue shimmer - this one seems to have more shimmer than the others giving it more of an iridescent look. Two coats with no top coat.

Indirect natural lighting...


Okay, so as I said, I had some requests for comparisons before I even swatched them. I couldn't do all of them for you but here are the two with Chanel.

Lillian and Riva. They are close, I've gotta hand it to you! Of course Lillian doesn't have the shimmer that Riva does and Lillian is much more opaque and has a bit more green in it.

Leslie and Lilac Sky. Again, close! Leslie is cooler-toned and has more blue than red in the base than Lilac Sky. They both have great shimmer but Leslie's is light blue while Lilac Sky's is lavender.

Nice job though! I have the smartest readers!


What do you think? Your favorites? Mine is Eden, probably because it's the most color-saturated and pops better against my pale skin. I'm all about the contrast because pastels just wash me out even more.

These polishes, as well as 100s of other great Zoya polishes, are available on, at select salons and spas and at Ulta. You can also follow Zoya on Facebook to get in on their frequent promotions and discounts as well as other information.  Zoya lacquers are 5-free (free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor) and cruelty-free.

  1. I'm loving Rayne, that color just calls to me... LOL

  2. Beautiful swatches Sheila! I love your nail art with these!

  3. Hi Sheila, sigh. Just when a girl thinks she has *enough* pastel spring polishes, along comes a delightful collection like this with colors I *can't* live without. Thanks for the beautiful swatches and review of these!

  4. Very nice. I wonder how Lillian compares to Color Club Take Me to Your Chateau, which is my go-to blue.
