Zoya Sansa & OPI First Class Desires Comparison

Press Sample I recently posted the Zoya Ignite Collection review which contains the gorgeous new Fall shade Sansa.  When I was posting sneak peeks of the OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection last night, one shade in particular (First Class Desires) had a few people asking “Is that a dupe for Zoya Sansa?” so I figured a comparison post was in order.  At the time I was asked, I knew it was close but wasn’t sure how close. I’m going to go ahead and spoil it already.  Are these dupes? No.  Not exactly.  Are they close enough to justify purchasing only 1?  In my opinion.. yes.  If I went out with the mani you are about to see, most people glancing at it would not be able to really tell.  So in that sense, it could be a dupe.  But if you are extremely technical, then it’s not. You can…

Zoya Fall 2014 Entice Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample I have the third and final Fall 2014 collection from Zoya to show you tonight!  Zoya Entice is another 6 piece collection, and I previously showed you Ignite and the Ultra PixieDusts. While Ignite showed us some shimmery Fall beauties, Entice has some beautiful creme shades, some similar to the Ignite collection but without shimmer. Claire Claire is a warm burgundy creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos. Veronica Veronica is a slightly dusty berry creme.  I used 2 coats for these photos. I had some slight staining from Veronica. Margo Margo is a flawless red plum creme.  One of my favorites in the collection.  I used 2 coats for these photos. Ryan Ryan is another favorite for me!  This is a classic indigo creme that is pure perfection.  I used 2 coats for these photos. Genevieve  Genevieve is a slightly blue leaning grey creme.  I used 2 coats…

Zoya Fall 2014 Ignite Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample I was going to save the best for last but I can’t contain myself and have to post this now!   Zoya released 3 collections total for Fall 2014.  The Ignite Collection (which I will show you now!), Ultra PixieDust Collection and the Entice Collection (which should be up tonight.) Of the 3 collection, Ignite just blew me away.  The shimmer and the base shades were perfect for Fall! Let’s dive right in. Autumn Autumn is a coppery orange base packed with gold shimmer.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat. India India is a deep, luxurious red with a gold liquid metallic shimmer.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat. Teigen Teigen is a pink toned cranberry with a copper liquid metal.  I used 2 coats for these photos. Remy Remy was almost a one coat polish! Remy is a…

Zoya Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDust Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample How is the weekend almost over already?  I swear it was just Friday! Tonight I have the Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDusts from Zoya to show you.  And yes… Ultra.  At this point in time there are 3 different types of PixieDusts.  Zoya has released the original PixieDusts (Example here) which are matte textures with a bit of sparkle.  We have Magical PixieDusts (Example Here) which are matte, chunky texture polishes with holographic glitters.  Ultra PixieDusts are similar to Magical PixieDusts, but without the holographic glitters. So lets take a look at this new spin on PixieDusts! Oswin Oswin is described as a true red matte texture with mega red hex particles.  I used 2 coats for these photos.  Of the 3 new Ultra PixieDusts, this is the only one that dried down to a true matte.  Because of this, it is my favorite of the 3. Arianna Ariana…

Zoya Naturel Deux Collection Swatches & Review & A Little Nail Art

Press Sample We’re getting into the cooler months here soon (thank goodness!) and while I love the brights or Summer, I’m ready for the cooler Fall weather.  Zoya has a follow up to last years Naturel collection released that will help transition into the cooler months with the Naturel Deux collection! Don’t remember the Naturel collection much?  Make sure to check out my review of the original Naturels! Let’s jump on in! Spencer Spencer is my favorite of the 6 shades, which surprised me!  This is described as a camel cream.  I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat. Chanelle Chanelle is described as a toasted almond creme shade.  I find it to be close to a milk chocolate shade.  Very creamy too!  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Emilia Emilia is described as a dark chocolate creme, but to…
