Zoya Cashmeres and Satins for Fall 2013 Swatches and Review

Zoya Satins
Zoya Satins

Welcome to fall 2013 with Zoya Cashmeres and Satins.

This new collection, or rather two collections, feature twelve new shades. Cashmeres features six very fall-like cream shades and Satins features jewel-toned metallics and a gold flake top coat.

Most of these shades had a great full-coverage formula with just two coats. A couple were three-coaters for me. The golden top coat is gorgeous and you only need one coat for major bling.

Zoya Channing

Channing is a reddish/burnt orange metallic. Very shimmery and glow-y. Excellent coverage with two thin coats.

Zoya Mason

Mason is a reddish/violet metallic. Ah man, this color is gorgeous! It’s very jewel-like, lit-from-within and sparkly to boot. It’s a little on the more watery side so I used three thin coats here for complete coverage.

Zoya Claudine

Claudine is a deep charcoal grey metallic. The coverage on this one is really thick, I nearly used just one coat. Then I added a way too thick second coat and made it streaky.  This isn’t really the polish’s fault, it’s my sloppy application. But you still have to work a little more carefully with it because it is the streakiest one in the collection.

Zoya Giovanna

Giovanna is an emerald green metallic. This one is vivid and another great jewel-tone for fall. This was two thin coats.

Zoya Neve

Neve is a deep sapphire blue metallic with some pink and purple sparkle. It’s definitely a “blurple” shade. So rich and pretty, it’s probably my favorite one. This was two thin coats.

Zoya Maria Luisa

Maria Luisa (over Louise) has a clear base and features warm gold flake glitter. Pretty, perfect for fall, and creates a mess when removing! ;)

Zoya Flynn

Flynn is a camel colored cream. This one starts off rather sheer and a little watery but builds up nicely with three thin coats. I like it because it’s kind of a weird color.

Zoya Louise

Louise is a deep chocolate brown cream. Looks like melted chocolate doesn’t it? Shiny, rich and lovely with two coats.

Zoya Hunter

Hunter is a deep hunter green cream. I love this shade because I feel like we don’t see a ton of greens in this muted greyish/green color. This was just two coats.

Zoya Sailor

Sailor is a deep muted navy cream. This one, like Hunter, has that greyish toned down look to it which I really like. I don’t have a lot of blue cremes like this. It was two coats.

Zoya Livingston

Livingston is a bright red cream. Nearly a jelly-like finish, it’s a bit sheer and see-through even with three thin coats. It’s SO shiny, bright  and cheery though!

Zoya Pepper

Pepper is a brick red cream. Brownish red. I don’t love these types of shades personally, but the polish itself was nice enough and covered in two coats.

Zoya Cashmeres and Satins Collage

Overall: I feel like both of these collections definitely speak to fall with the deep shimmery jewel tones and soft creamy cream shades. Haha, creamy cream. My favorites in terms of originality and just plain awesomeness are Mason, Neve, Flynn and Hunter.

Availability: Zoya.

Pricing: $8.00.

    Mason and Giovanna are gorgeous!
    Is Mason by any chance similar to Rimmel Pulsating?

      Sorry I have no idea, I don’t use Rimmel.

  • August 6, 2013

    I’m going for the satin shades all the way. I’m a sucker for the kind of shimmer that makes the polish look like it’s glowing!

  • August 6, 2013

    I loove blues with a touch of grey, so I think I need Sailor :)

    Hunter is probably the main shade that is calling my name. But I also love Channing, Claudine, & Neve.

    Would love to pick up Mason and maybe one or two of the creams – not sure which one as they are all stunning!

    Oh wow, the cashmeres are my favorite! Especially Hunter, it’s a great fall/winter color!

  • August 6, 2013

    I think the only polishes I will be purchasing is the pixie dust collection. Saw them on a different blog and they are to die for. The only one from this collection I like is Giovanna and Neve but I don’t need any more blue/greens in my collection. I’m running out of room.

  • August 6, 2013

    I love Claudine, Loiuse and Hunter, they are the best shades! :) Also Pepper looks tempting! ;)

    Louise and Hunter. I die. But Livingston and Sailor too, because you can never have too many reds and navy blues. I hoard those kind of colors. Plus, I LOVE those names. Zoya has become my absolute favorite mainstream brand in the last six months!

  • August 6, 2013

    And I will say, is it just me, or does Claudine look a lot like A England Dorian Gray??? I love that shade.

  • August 6, 2013

    How does Sailor compare to Zoya Natty?

    • August 6, 2013

      Natty is murkier, more greyed out, Sailor is brighter and closer to navy, but still slightly greyish.

      • August 6, 2013

        Thanks Kelly. That’s exactly the kind of info I was looking for. Sailor-sold!

  • August 6, 2013

    Ugh I love fall collections so much. They’re always my favorite. Hunter and Pepper are totally calling my name! I don’t have many dark greens and none are cremes, and I have literally nothing like Pepper in my 200+ polishes.

    I think I just fell in love with Neve. Might become my first Zoya purchase.

    Mason, Neve and Channing are interesting to me – but I have similar to all the others.

    Love these! Probably Saylor and Hunter. I always love blues and greens until I use them. Then I realize I should stick to pinks or reds LOL

    I haven’t been able to compare it to the Zoya one side by side, but one of the newer Wet ‘n’ Wild megalast nail polishes available at Dollar General looks very much like the color Giovanna you showed here. The Wet ‘n’ Wild possible dupe for Giovanna is called Blue Lagoon if anyone is interested :)

  • August 9, 2013

    Ooh it’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about a polish collection, these look great!

    Both Hunter and Sailor are really nice (drool).

    Livingston is the only polish shade that I felt I had to go out and buy IMMEDIATELY. It’s seriously the perfect red.

    Ooooooooo!!! I need the gold flakie topper! I love that it’s more of a cellophane gold (and not jagged shards a la Moon Candy). I saw it over Channing in a NOTD and wow, it looked like fiery lava! That made me want Channing too, lol.

    So my list is: Maria Luisa, Channing, Neve, Mason, and Livingston. Man, I am really into the reds lately. I think my red lipstick obsession has finally made it’s way to my nails! :D

  • August 13, 2013

    Mason, Giovanna, & Neve have my heart!

  • August 17, 2013

    I need to swatch this still! It looks amazing on you!
