Zoya Diva and Designer Fall 2012 Swatches and Reviews

Hello!!

I used the following Zoyas in this post (Evvie, Rehka, Ray and Suri) and as a base for glitter topcoats, which I'll show you very soon. But they are so beautiful I wanted to devote a whole post for them :)
I've also used the rest of  the Zoya Fall/Winter 2012 Diva, Designer and Gloss Collections in the following posts if you'd like to check them out:
Explosion nail art with Zoya Daul 
Stained Glass nail art with Gloss Trio
Snowfall Glitter and Zoya Monica
Delicate stamping with Zoya Noot and Toni
I love NY nail art with Zoya Rekha
Dotted nail art with Zoya Song
Cloud nail art with Zoya FeiFei and Natty
Half moon nail art with Zoya Elisa

 Evvie is (from Zoya website) a dark smoky grey cream with strong teal green undertones. A custom-mixed runway shade created for designer Peter Som.

 Suri is (from Zoya website) a medium blue-toned purple with delicate red and blue shimmer and a smooth metallic finish. For a perfect royal purple nail with interesting red and blue sparkle detail.



Ray is (from Zoya website) a dark blackened pine green with smooth, delicate silver and green frost shimmer. A dark, smoky nail color balanced by a bit of shimmer for a softer effect.



 Rehka is (from Zoya website) a bold medium blood red with a glossy cream finish. A custom runway shade created for fashion designer Bibhu Mohapatra.


Let's talk formula and application. I'm going to address them all together because quite honestly..I had no complaints at all. Very good formula on all of these and they are all showing 2 coats and NO topcoat (because I used these all as a base for glitter topcoats). My easy favorite of this bunch is Rekha. I know, it has no bells and whistles, it's just a red cream. But WOW. This is my new favorite red. It's stunning!! Which is your favorite??

Be well!

  7. I love my Zoyas SO MUCH, I'm constantly fangirling over them. Your swatches are gorge, I almost bought Evvie during the BOGO sale but decided against it and your swatch of it is making me really regret that decision.

  9. Oh, wow. Rekha and Evvie are totally vying for top spot to me, but every single one of these is just gorgeous. Beautifully rich and so incredibly shiny, even without top coat! Dang, I can't wait to see them all glittered up now. ;)
