Zoya has two new collections out for summer 2009 and today I am showing you the metallic collection called Ooh-La-La. I have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of these beauties and as soon as they came I swatched them even though the sun was only peeking out here and there. So pics taken in sun/clouds with no top coat.
Ginessa is a truly cool silvery white polish that is metallic looking but also filled with little sparkles. I am not usually a fan of metallic silver or white but this was extra special because of the sparkle. The application was very nice, though I used three coats to get full opacity (which I generally do with most polishes anyway).
Emme is a pretty pastel light pink that was nice, but didn’t blow me away. It looked good on me and the application was pretty even for a metallic, it just isn’t my favorite color. This is three coats.
Katy is a great fuschia pink with purple/blue shimmer in it. This flowed really nicely onto the nail and was opaque in just two coats.
Goldie is a very unusual gold that leans towards copper or olive or something. It’s definitely not your average yellow gold, that’s for sure! While I love the color in the bottle, it looked awful on me because of the yellow undertones I have in my skin. This would look fab on non-yellow skin though! No application issues and this was three coats.
Tallulah is a very pretty medium blue that has a yellow/green flash to it from the shimmer. I really like it, especially with my skin tone but not sure it’s TOTALLY original. If you love blues though, this is a must have. The application on this was also fabulous. This was three coats.
Midori. Hands down the favorite of the bunch for me. I love it. Midori is a grass green that flashes yellow. It’s outstanding and reminds me a lot of China Glaze’s now discontinued Moonpool (which I just got form eBay and will be showing you soon!). The application was excellent and this was three coats.
I will be bringing you the second half of Zoya’s summer collection soon called La-Di-Da which are bright cremes.
