Review & Swatches: Zoya Designer, Diva & Gloss

Hi again, everyone!

Today I have the entire Designer, Diva, and Gloss collection from Zoya. There's quite a bit to cover, so let's get started!



Zoya Designer Creme Collection

Rekha is a cool-toned red creme. Zoya describes it as a blood red, but it seems a little too bright. For a creme finish, the formula is a bit on the jelly side of the spectrum, which is more apparent in person. This was 2 coats.


Toni is a vampy, deep purple creme. This was my least favorite and had the thickest formula from the Designer collection. Nice color, but just not for me. This was 2 coats.


Monica, now here's a purple I can work with! It's a cool toned, dark purple creme opaque after 1 coat. This was my second favorite from this collection.


Natty, is a smokey navy/steel blue. This was hands down my favorite from the collection. Perfect formula, great application, and was opaque after one generous coat!


Evvie is a dusty, grey green creme. This rounded off my top 3 picks from this collection. Evvie required 2 coats for opacity.


Noot is a deep gray, green creme. I love the edginess of this color. It seems like a lighter, toned down version of Evvie. This was 2 coats.


Zoya Diva Metallic Collection

Elisa is a bright metallic red infused with red shimmers. Christmas came early this year! Pictures do not do this color any justice, this is a must see in person. Formula was perfect after two coats.


Suri is a royal, purple metallic infused with magenta and blue shimmers. Great formula and only required 2 coats for opacity.


Song is an electric, bright blue metallic with blue shimmers This was my favorite from the the Diva collection! Stunning and perfect after 1 coat.


Ray is a deep, green metallic. This was my least favorite from this collection. I tried really hard to like it, but it's just not for me. This was 2 coats. 


FeiFei is a steel blue metallic beauty with tons of gold, purple, and blue shimmer. My second favorite from this collection! This is some kind of amazing! Again, this is a must see in person. FeiFei required 3 coats for opacity.


Daul  is a violet metallic foil infused with tons of gold shimmer. This rounded off my top three from the Diva collection. This was 3 coats.


Zoya Gloss Sheer Jelly Collection

Paloma is a berry jelly. This was the brightest of the three and was the easiest to apply.


Katherine is a brown, eggplant jelly and was my favorite from the three. This was 3 coats.


Frida is a teal jelly. My second favorite from this collection, but the formula was a bit more runnier than the three. This was 3 coats with VNL still peeking thru, perhaps 1 or 2 coats would become opaque
.

- Great Fall colors
- Excellent formula
- 1-2 coats for Designer & Diva
-Vibrant
-Glossy 

-Toni was a pain to apply and had the thickest formula in all three collections.

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

  4. I'm loving some of these colours, they all look lovely! xx

  5. FeiFei and Daul look completely different in the sunlight! But love almost all of these, especially the metallics.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Daul and FeiFei are the ones i keep coming back to on every set of swatches - foils tend to stick quite well and wear well for me, I'd love to try these and see what wear time is like

  7. FeiFei and Daul look completely different in the sunlight! But love almost all of these, especially the metallics.

  8. FeiFei is GORGEOUS. I'm not sure how I feel about the sheer jellies though.

  9. Up until now the only complete collections I've been tempted to purchase have been China Glazes. (I own the Capitol Colors collection because I love them, not because of the tie-in to a book I've never read, and I'm planning to get the entire On Safari collection.) But the Designer Creme collection here? Awesome. Rekha and Natty are the only two I wouldn't be tempted to buy if I saw them by themselves. But when I think over 50% of a collection are *needed* in my stash? I'm gonna get the whole thing. I've been finding that it's a good way to add colors in my stash that I don't particularly like on their own, but are great at complimenting the others in the collection when I do nail art with them. ^_^

  10. Love both of these collections! Might need to buy a couple, since I own no Zoyas!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great collection. Some aren't as opaque as most Zoya polishes usually are but I really love Suri! Gorgeous! Thx for sharing.

  15. These are a great collection of polishes and I found the creams worked with just one coat but I always use two. Nice post!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow. I want them all, but I'd be happy with Fei Fei, though!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. FeiFei is such a pretty colour! so sparkly :O

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  19. Cannot wait for Song and Daul. Uber excited!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmm I like these colors but I don't think I'll be getting any of them. None are wowing me. FeiFei is interesting, I might check it out in person if I can find it at Ulta...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am absolutely dying to get the designer and diva collections! You are so lucky to already have these beauties :) Thanks for the swatches

    ReplyDelete
  22. The gloss collection looks to be my favourite! Love!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Not gonna lie, basically none of these polishes excite me. They're a bit boring and dupeable. That said, they do go very well together as a cohesive collection.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Feifei and frida at the only ones jumping out at me. I think I'm still stuck on spring and summer colors lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. They are very beautiful glazes Zoya colors are spectacular, unfortunately in my country are not but soon will purchase through the online shopping. This brilliant your blog post you have many extraordinary.

  33. I really enjoy Fei Fei and Dula. Maybe I'll get these, too. :D

    I'm just waiting for my Surf Collection birthday present right now... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow i can't decide which one i like the most hahaha I always wanted to own at least one bottle of Zoya, OPI or China Glaze but they are so expensive here... :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great swatches! I really want a couple of shades from these collections.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Suri, Feifei, Daul, Natty, Evvie and Monica is on their way to my collection :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. So many gorgeous shades! wow!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Song and FeiFei look really interesting, and I've wanted Orly Oui for a while, and Daul looks like a great dupe. And also, The whole gloss collection seems so interesting and versatile. I'd love to try all sorta of layering with those.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I might sound unpopular but I like none of these Fall shades Zoya came out with. Apart from maybe Natty the other ones seem not unique at all...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks for the swatches, they really help me decide which I can do without, and which I have to get!

    ReplyDelete
  41. So many beauties!!
    I love them all!
    Zoya is really a great brand!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love Song!! Need that one in my life!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love those jellies! Too bad Frida is so sheer, it's my favorite color. I bet it would make a cool jelly sandwich if you but a matching blue under it that was more opaque!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love Song and FeiFei!
    Thanks for the swatches!

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, love all colors, are perfect for this autum

  46. Never tried Zoya polish but I might give them a go after seeing some of these. x

    ReplyDelete
  47. Elisa and FeiFei are my favorutes! <3

    ReplyDelete
  48. this collection is absolutely awesome! unfortunately I have no idea on where to find them here in Italy.. I guess they are pretty rare to find :(

    ReplyDelete
  49. The more swatches and opinions I seen on these collections the more I want Fei Fei and Daul as well as the jellies. Im not huge on blues other than aqua/teal/turquoise but Natty looks like a really nice smokey blue. I def dont have any color like that one. I might have to add evvie as well to my wish list.

    Thanks for the swatches.

    ReplyDelete
  50. These are all so beautiful! I just got my Gloss collection in the mail yesterday! I am so excited to try some Jelly Sandwiches =)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I loveee Daul and FeiFei. I'm wearing Daul right now!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. The only one that catches my eye is Daul. It would be nice to see that layered over another matching creme.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I definitely need Song and FeiFei, and I might have trouble resisting Natty, too! (Can you tell I love blues?)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I really wasn't feeling these new Zoyas at all- they were EVERYWHERE- but then I saw Ray. Ohh, now I get it! I need that one at least!

    ReplyDelete
  74. This 3 collections are freaking amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thanks for swatching these. A lot of the Zoya colors look similiar in the bottles. I have been looking for a red and now I'm lemming Elisa.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I seriously go back and forth on these collections - sometimes I want them all and sometimes it's just meh. :/

    ReplyDelete
  77. I like your good pictures, but I think it's so dangerous to read all this blogs... :) Now I want to have Ray and some other nice ones.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I never had the opportunity to try a Zoya polish but everytime I see related posts and the colors of the polishes I just stare at them and keep saying how beautiful they are.
    For what I saw you really liked he blues and greens and I must say, those are the colors that always claim my attention. I think Zoya has beautiful colors.
    I just want to try one!! hahaha xD

    ReplyDelete
  79. Nice review. I like just about every color. I really like the dark greens and blues, like Noot and Natty.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am having trouble making up my mind. I love the creme collection and the gloss collection. One thing I am sure on is the new fall colors. They are gorgeous! Thank you so much for showing them to us!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I cannot wait to get the jellies! I even already have some jelly sandwiches planned for them!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favorite color is purple - so Suri instantly jumps out to me. I normally prefer cremes but find myself definitely liking the Diva collection more! I haven't tried a single Zoya yet & this makes me sad. :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love the color purple, so Sure instantly jumps out at me. I normally prefer cremes but I am loving everything about the Diva collection!
