Zoya Sophisticates Fall 2017 Collection – Press Samples

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you have been having a great week so far. I’ve unfortunately been dealing with a crap ton of seasonal allergies and they’re driving me bonkers! I need to up my Claritin, I think. I’m gonna keep this short and sweet because I have 12 gorgeous polishes to show you that make up the Zoya Sophisticates collection! Let’s get to the polishes!

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Rich, bordeaux red cream

Finish: Creme

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Notes: The pearlescent shimmer in here is gorgeous, plus I have a huge crush on hunter green shades.

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Presley Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Presley Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Presley Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Presley

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Smokey, mauve taupe cream

Finish: Creme

Notes: I had to add a matte topcoat on this. These shades are also opaque enough to stamp, so I stamped over the matte base! I’ll show you the look at the end of the post 🙂

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Padma Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Padma Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Padma

 

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Deep, vermillion red cream

Finish: Creme

Notes: I don’t necessarily agree with the vermillion red description, because this pulls more berry/mauve to me. I don’t typically gravitate towards these shades of colors, but I still think it’s pretty.

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Deep, burgandy plum cream

Notes: This description I DO agree with! The burgundy is such a gorgeous, velvety color. I love it!

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Mckenna Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Mckenna Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Mckenna Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Mckenna

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Refined pearl in a soft almond

Finish: Creme shimmer

Notes: The shimmer barely pops out on this one, but it adds just enough to give it a little life. I love it when nudes are more yellow than pink based, that means I can wear them! I also added a matte top coat to this, and I love how it turned out. Perfect nude shade for me.

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Joni Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Joni Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Joni

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Deep, dusty plum cream

Notes: This shade is a beautiful color, and this does happen to be my Mom’s favorite shade!

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hera Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hera Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hera

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Muted, red mauve cream

Finish: Creme

Notes: I took 4 different sets of photos for this shade, and I could not get it to show muted or necessarily mauve. It’s more rose to me. I think it’s just my skin tone, or something, because I know how it looks in the bottle and it looks completely different on my nail!

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hadley Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hadley Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Hadley

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Smokey midnight blue creme

Finish: Creme

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Gal Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Gal Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Gal

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic

Finish: Shimmer flake

Notes: I can’t look at this and not think of Wonder Woman. Perfect name choice!

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Dark, umber brown cream

Finish: Creme

Notes: This is another super dark polish with a hint of color. In some lights it showed a touch of red for me, so that is where the umber comes through. It reminds me of a dark raspberry chocolate!

Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Beth Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Beth Zoya Sophisticates Zoya Beth

Formula/Application: No issues to report

Coverage: Opaque in one thick coat, two thinner coats

Color: Soft, sandy, champagne metallic

Finish: Creme shimmer

Notes: I definitely agree with the description on this one, too. It’s a beautiful warm shade that will be perfect for work, weddings, whatever!
