Zoya's fall collection - Smoke and Mirrors - is a refreshing change of pace from all the brights and neons of summer. As usual, this collection is divided into two parts: Six creme shades (Smoke) and six shimmers (Mirrors). The theme for this set is smoky, sultry color and I have to say I'm digging all the greens and purples.
The formula on these was great. Everything was really dense and opaque- almost entirely opaque in one coat on all the colors but Cynthia. I did two coats in all these pictures and didn't need more than that. They were smooth and not too runny. The brushes were even and fan out perfectly to fit my nail shape. Drying time was excellent and all the shades dried surprisingly shiny without topcoat. But... you should really use topcoat anyway. It makes them that much better. I didn't have any problems with the application, dry time or wear.
I am really excited about this collection. I love almost every color- there's some really amazing shades in here. I can't even pick favorites. I like the vampy cremes, the smoky purples, the GREENS, the glitters... The only things I'm meh about are the three metallics- Marina, Nimue and Tao. They don't have the same appeal for me as the rest of the colors. I mean... I don't even know silver frost exists when there's glittery purple in the room.
These will be available on Zoya.com starting July 15th.
