Zoya 2012 Fall Designer Collection Swatches and Review

Here is Part 2 of my Zoya Fall Reviews!  A week ago I posted the 2012 Fall Gloss Collection and tonight I will be showing you the Designer Collection!  When I first saw these colors I didn’t have high hopes for them.  The designer collection is more “dusty colors” and I like bright vibrant colors.  I was surprised though, only 1 color I was still “meh” about after swatching!

As I said before – Zoya is my first real polish love.  They are incredibly generous with promotions and such on their Facebook Page, but they also take chances on beginner blogs, which I noticed a lot of companies just don’t do.  They really made me feel like a “real blogger” when I first started out.

Now here is the Designer Collection!


Evvie was surprisingly one of my favorites from the Designer Collection.  I’ve been on a bit of a dusty grey toned polish kick lately.  Evvie is a dark smoky grey cream with strong teal green undertones.


Natty is another gorgeous one that I was surprised I loved so much.  Natty is a smoky deep steel blue with an opaque cream finish.  Perfect for fall!


Noot is a fun polish name!  “What are you wearing on your nails?” – “Oh, that’s Noot”.  Anyways, Noot is the deeper sister to Evvie.  It is a very dark grey cream with strong blue-green undertones.


Toni was one of the original colors I knew I would want when I saw the set.  Toni is a dark, warm raisin-wine cream with strong purple tone.  Sorry about the huge smear on the bottle – apparently I missed that when editing photos.  Its been a long day!


Monica was another “want” from this collection (you knew the purple was coming!).  Monica is a dark, soft blue-toned purple with a glossy cream finish. LOVE!


Does Zoya Rehka look familiar?  It should.  Rehka was originally released earlier this year in the Bibhu Mohapatra NYFW trio.  I skipped that trio because I was on a no buy at that point in time.  Rehka is a very pretty bold medium blood red with a glossy cream finish.  Not my favorite, but reds haven’t been lately for me.  I will wear it again though.

That wraps up the Zoya 2012 Designer Collection for fall!  If you love dusty shades, you need this set!

Retail price: $8.00 Each

Thinking of purchasing?  Zoya has a program called Share the Love!  If you click on the following link and set up a new account – you get a FREE polish (Just pay shipping!).. add a second polish and shipping is free PLUS the first polish is free!  I do get points based on my Share the Love link, which I generally flip and hold giveaways to spend the points.  You get a free polish, I get 100 points.
