Zoya Zenith Holiday Winter 2013 Swatches and Review - Picture Heavy

Provided For Review

Available October 1st from Zoya.com, the Zenith Holiday Winter Collection will have you longing for hot cocoa, funky scarves, and the serene quiet after a beautiful snowfall <3 At least it does for me! ;)

Zoya once again nails it with 6 beautiful winter/holiday inspired shades. I absolutely love that Zoya stepped away from the traditional colors associated with the holidays.

All photos are shown with 2 coats and no top coat. Formula on all of these were phenomenal, as usual!

*Just a small disclosure - mid-swatching, I had to get dinner started and ended up cutting through a nail with the vegetable peeler, so some photos show the nail in question filed down :P

Seraphina is a polaris silver metallic. Very sheer on the first coat, still VNL after a second coat. 3 coats would probably be perfect! Beautiful color, reminds me of freshly fallen snow, silver tinsel on Christmas trees. As with any foil/metallic, clean up was a pain :P

Cassedy is a celestial pewter metallic. Gorgeous! I love the dark gunmetal color and the flashes of pine green coming through.

Mosheen is an astro ice blue topper consisting of holo bar glitter and small holo glitter dots or hexes. I layered it over Seraphina and Cassedy here. This would look great over a lot of colors!

Belinda is a cosmic purple metallic. Gorgeous color! Falls right in between Neve from the Satin Collection and Suri.. comparison post??

Here is Mosheen layered over Belinda. My camera freaked out! Not sure how I feel about this combination, though :\

And finally.. my two favorites of the collection! <3 If you loved Blaze, Storm, or Aurora from the 2012 Ornate Collection, you'll love these two!

Payton is a galactic cranberry holo. I think after a third coat (as shown on my ring finger), the color leans more toward a mulberry shade. Definitely reminds me of cranberry sauce, cranberry relish. Yum!

And my absolute favorite! Dream is a deep space blue holo. I loved this so much I had to use it in a mani (blog post to follow!)

Beautimous!! <3

Overall, this collection is absolutely beautiful! All polishes were quick drying and didn't require top coat for shine! Any favorites?

Zoya can be bought at www.zoya.com and as always, are 5-free. Retail price is $8 per bottle.
