Zoya Fall 2015 Flair Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample

I was busy today! I just showed you Zoya’s Focus Collection for Fall 2015, and as most people know, Zoya usually puts out 2 6 piece collections every season – so now I have Flair to show you!

Focus was the toned down creme collection and Flair brings us some shimmery Fall shades. I did get to see these early at CPNA and they looked beautiful, but now I get to put them on… so let’s see if they lived up to my expectations!

Estelle

Estelle is a metallic blue with blue shimmer. Zoya describes it as a blue on blue liquid metal with a blackened base, but I didn’t find it dark enough to be referred to as a blacked base.

I used 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat.

Aggie

Zoya Fall 2015 Flair Collection Aggie Swatch

Aggie was the shade I couldn’t wait to put on, but I do feel a little let down by it. This is a slight shifter and has strong gold/bronze shifts with bronze microglitter.  In the bottle you see a greenish blue shift as well, but I just couldn’t see it on the nail. In some angles I thought I saw it, but it was incredibly slight and more of a golden green shift. My photos bring out a ton of the bronze, but in person the bronze isn’t quite as strong.

There is also the SLIGHTEST holo in it. I almost didn’t believe it was there but they are really such small specks and so hard to see – I wouldn’t really count it. If you look in the above photo – in the bottle by the “A” you can see a twinkle of holo. That’s it. Very deceiving though and if you are looking for a strong holo sparkle – you will be disappointed.

The photo below shows the shift a bit – it’s the best I could photograph.

Ember

Ember is a gorgeous firey red metallic. This one impressed me and has a glowy quality. 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat.

Cinnamon is another winner from this collection. Cinnamon is a beautiful chocolate brown with bronze shimmer throughout. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.

Zoya Fall 2015 Flair Collection Overview

Overview

Much like the Focus collection – I found Flair to have great application. One thing I was quite thrilled about was the lack of brush strokes visible on such shimmer packed shades. All 6 of the Flair shades only needed 2 coats and a glossy top coat – it’s been awhile since I’ve had zero application issues in both sets of Zoya polishes released.

Between Focus and Flair – I do think Flair is my favorite of the two Zoya Fall collections. Focus was pretty – but Flair has the extra oomph. My top picks are Estelle, Cinnamon and Giada. Aggie had promise, but it fell a little short for me because the shift in the bottle didn’t translate to the nail like I had hoped it would. It’s still pretty – I think I just high expectations for it.

Price: $9.00 Each

Cinnamon is for me and I love how deep the purple is in Giada. And in spite of your disappointment in Aggie, I’m still so curious about it

I’m so excited to wear some of these. Where I get my nails done they usually get in everything Zoya. There are some shades for fall like Aggie, Giada and Cinnamon that I will love wearing.
