Zoya Ornate for Winter 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
Good afternoon! Guess what just landed on my desk? Zoya Ornate for winter 2012!
This collection of six new shimmering, glimmering lacquers features some really cool shades and finishes. The coverage was really great with these as well. Almost all were totally opaque in two coats.
Ziv is a warm gold foil with deeper gold glitter pieces. Great foil finish and uber-shimmery. It went on a bit sheer at first (no streaks whatsoever though) but I only needed two coats.
Logan is a deep emerald green foil with green and gold glitter pieces. This is a deep green, however it isn’t blackened, so you can definitely tell it’s green. Love the gold shimmer throughout. Super creamy and lovely, and just two coats.
Aurora is a purple base with heavy holographic shimmer. So pretty! This might be my favorite one. The shimmer in it is super intense and obvious. This was just two coats.
Blaze is a cranberry red base with heavy holographic shimmer. On the nail you see mostly red, purple and pink shimmer and it looks really gorgeous. Actually this one might be my favorite…it’s a tie with Aurora! This was creamy, smooth and two coats.
Storm is a black base with holographic shimmer. This one was just a wee bit less opaque so I used three thin coats to get the tips fully covered. Nice deep black and very strong holo effect.
Electra has a clear base and features holographic bar glitter. This is one you would probably want to wear over another color since the base is clear and not fully opaque. This is two coats above. I am not really a fan of bar glitter, but that’s just my personal preference.
Overall: Strong collection! I really like that the finishes and shades are slightly different than the typical holiday/winter collections that come out. Aurora, Blaze and Storm in particular are not shades you see very often. The formula is really great with these and I LOVE all the holographic shimmer!
