I am so behind haha! I meant to have this post up a week ago, but I tell ya, life sometimes takes weird turns, doesn't it? But we've got Zoya Flair goodies this morning! These metallic pretties just scream "Fall is coming!" This is my favorite time of the year, what about you?
I've taken a lot of pictures of this collection. You'll notice four photos for each color - sunlight, shade, indoors with natural light and indoors with flash (in that order, as if you are reading a book). I've done this for several reasons. I want to provide a wide variety of lighting options for you to see how the polish looks.
Ember, oh Ember. Your fiery red gorgeousness stole my heart. But that should be no surprise to anyone reading this if you know me. In typical metallic fashion, application can be a bit tricky if you try to pile it on too thick. But if you pay attention, and use solid strokes, you should have no problems :)
Estelle is a pretty blue with a dark base, and it's got that metallic "zing," as I call it. I find it really hard sometimes to get great photos of metallics in the sun, but this one just kind of glows in direct sunlight. The formula on this one was good, but you can get in the "stroke trap" if you don't watch what you're doing.
Giada is one of those polishes that is such a deep and dark purple that sometimes you can't tell exactly what color it is - is it purple or black or violet blue? A pearly effect in a deep pink runs through this polish. The formula, for me, was the easiest of this collection, and it comes close to being a one-coater.
Cinnamon is just as yummy as the spice - and the right shade! It's a rich bronze polish that has a great formula. This one was originally designed for Zang Toi NYFW Fall/Winter for 2015. I really like this rich shade, and I don't think I have anything quite like it in my collection.
Tris, I'm assuming, is named for the character in the Divergent series? At any rate, it's a gritty, deep, blackened silver and was a tad on the thin side for my taste. You can see, after 3 coats, I still have some VNL. I do think this shade is very pretty, but I just don't think it's for me.
Last, but not least, is Aggie. This gold beauty has loads of shifty goodness. I see oranges, greens, golds... all I had to do was move my hands around! The formula on this one is really good for it being this shifty. I used 3 thin coats, and it just looks good :)
Will you be picking any of them up? Might I suggest Ember? That one has definitely captured my heart! You can order these as a set of 6 for $54 on the Zoya website or individually priced at $9.
