*These polishes were sent to me for review*
I know I'm very late in getting these reviews out, but life happens. Today I'll be showing Zoya's Awaken collection along with Monet, a glitter topcoat.
|Zoya Dot with Monet accent|
Dot is a light pink cream. I used 3 coats & it went on lovely. Very shiny without having to use top coat.
|Zoya Cole with Monet accent|
Cole is a light peach/orange cream. I used 3 coats without topcoat.
|Zoya Brooklyn with Monet accent|
Brooklyn is a yellow/gold shimmer/metallic & was my least favorite from this collection. I don't normally like gold anyway, but I just don't think this color fits in with the rest of the polishes--I think there should have been a more yellow polish (perhaps a light yellow?). I used 2 coats & it was streaky & shows brush strokes.
|Zoya Dillon with Monet accent|
Dillon is a minty green metallic with silver shimmer. This one surprised me by being more sheer than I would have thought--I needed 3 coats for full coverage.
|Zoya Rebel with Monet accent|
Rebel is a sky blue metallic with silver shimmer. This was my favorite of the collection. I used 2 coats for full coverage.
|Zoya Hudson with Monet accent|
Hudson is a light orchid metallic with silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for full coverage.
|Zoya Monet over Purity & Raven|
I wanted to also show Monet over a black & a white so I choose Zoya Purity & Raven. Monet is a multi-colored cellophane glitter topper in a light pink base. It does slightly tint the polish it goes over, but I don't think you can tell much except for on Purity. I think it looks best over Dillon & Raven, but over Purity it looks like sprinkles on frosting which is a cute look.
You can buy the polishes for $9 each (Monet is $10) at http://www.zoya.com.
