An outfit is never complete without a manicure… At least that’s how I feel, if I don’t have my nails painted. I literally feel naked! Strange, huh? When you have a fresh manicure that complements your outfit, you look put together. Details ARE important!
Just like fashion, nail polish colors change with each season. In my last post I said that fall is my favorite season, so it’s no surprise that fall polish colors are my favorite! Zoya came out with three different collections for Fall 2013: Satins, Cashmeres, and Pixie Dusts. Today I am showing the first one, the Satin Collection. It contains 5 shimmer polishes and 1 glitter polish. The polishes are jewel toned, which is perfect for fall!
Maria Luisa is a glitter polish that has gold flakes. With two coats, you can wear it on its own (like I’m doing in the picture) or you can apply one layer on top of virtually any nail polish. It is so versatile, love it! It was a little hard to apply, because of the thick consistency. You have to play around with the placement of the gold flakes, to make sure they are evenly distributed on the nails.
Channing is a coppery red/orange polish with gold shimmer. It changes colors depending on the light. In a darker light it looks orange, but in the sunlight it leans more towards red. This nail polish reminds me of the leaves in the fall. That burnt orange color you see on trees! The formula is great, very opaque and it has a nice consistency. I used 2 coats for the photo, but you can get away with just one!
Claudine is a dark gunmetal shimmer polish. It’s in between two colors olive green and gray, and looks super chic. This is one of those colors that is dark enough to look black in certain light, without being completely black. The formula was good and like with Channing, you really only need one coat. I used 2 coats for the photos to give it the full effect.
Mason is a red toned purple shimmer polish. I love this shade, because it’s the closest to pink, without looking summery. The formula was a little bit on the thin side for what I personally like but it was easy to apply and the opacity was good. You definitely need two coats to get it opaque looking.
Neve is a sapphire blue shimmer polish. In the bottle it looks a little more purple than it does on the nail (that’s why swatches are important!). The formula was good, it was a little bit patchy on the first coat but perfect with the second.
Giovanna is a teal shimmer polish. It looks like a jade green in person, but still looks teal in most lighting. The formula was good, the consistency was good and the opacity was also really nice. I used 2 coats for the photos.
The Satin Collection from Zoya is available now at Zoya.com, each polish retails for $8. You can also get all 6 in a sampler set for $48!
