Zoya True and Fleck Collection Swatches – Zoya Cho and Farah

by Lisa Heath

So I got my Zoya nail mail earlier this week, but I wanted to wait until the sun was out to show them off.  There were only two colors from their True Collection I didn’t purchase and those two were Cho and Farah.  Mainly I didn’t order them because I can’t pull off “foundation” nail polish when they are on their own.  Some ladies can really rock the nude shades such as these, but I am not one of those ladies!

First up today is Zoya Cho, which is described as a  yellow-toned light soft peachy beige with a hint of ultra fine silver shimmer.  Now, I like this color in the bottle and I can see myself using it as a base color to use when I get polishes that need 5+ coats to BE opaque – but alone, this color isn’t for me.

Now, I can’t swatch the True Collection without throwing some flecks in too… so here is Cho with Fleck Effects in order from L to R: Chloe, Maisie & Opal

Next up is Zoya Farah.  This is a darker than Cho and doesn’t have the subtle shimmer to it.  Probably my least favorite of them all, but again, I can use it as a base for thinner polishes!  Farah is described as a  light khaki-beige with subtle sandy, greenish undertones and a cream finish.  Take a look:

And now of course – Farah with the Fleck Effects (from top to bottom – Opal, Maisie and Chloe):

Even though the color of these two Zoya polishes aren’t something I would spring for, the formula was fabulous.  I used 2 coats for each color and they went on easily and smooth.  I only used 1 coat of each Fleck Effect polish.

Zoya nail lacquer is available at Zoya.com for $8.00 per bottle.


**These polishes were sent to me by Zoya for review.  The opinions are strictly my own and I was not paid for this review**

I did the same those are the only two I didn’t order. Only because they are just not colors that appeal to me or that I ever wear.

I prefer my nails to be naked than to have a foundation like shade on them, just doesn’t look right on me

Cho with Fleck is pretty for a wedding but I’m not sure if I really like the nude shades, great review but I’ll stick to some of their other colors!

Trust me Deb – I’ll be doing the same thing! lol

I LOVE the Cho! I am a fan of nudes, usually pink based nudes but I love the Cho, especially with the flecks over it. I HAVE to get myself some of that Opal!

You could probably really rock this color Andromeda – I just can’t! lol

Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you just can do with a few percent to power the message house a bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
