Zoya Fall 2017 Sophisticates Collection Swatches and Reviews Part III

*press samples*

Hi guys! Sorry for the absence the last few days. I was fighting that allergic reaction for a few days, and last night I went and got the new iPhone 8 plus. I'm loving it so far! Tonight we're continuing the marathon that is the Zoya Sophisticates Collection. No more small talk, let's do this!

Zoya McKenna (2 coats)

McKenna is a nude base with a silver pearlescent finish. The pearl shimmer isn't too noticeable, but I like that it added a little sparkle to the nail. It leans yellow, which is good for my skin (nobody needs to see my lobster hands). It applied well in 2 coats, and was a breeze to remove. 

Zoya Mona (2 coats)

Mona is a vampy burgundy creme that would look great on some short nails. I mean, I don't think it really looks bad on me, but there's just something special about dark polish on short nails. It's been in the 90s this week, but I'll be reaching for this as the evenings get shorter (and cooler). The formula was a little thicker than most of the others in the collection (in a good way), and you may be able to get away with 1 coat. As always I used 2 for the photos above. 

Zoya Padma (2 coats)

Padma is most similar to Hera, but it's a tad darker with more berry undertones. This is another one that reminds me of an OPI color. Again, this one self-leveled well and needed just 2 coats for full coverage. The two cremes shown here were a breeze to remove as long as you wipe down across your nail instead of into the cuticle (I've had some reds/pinks stain that way). 

 Zoya polishes retail for $10 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages. Keep an eye out for them in your local Ulta store if you want to see the bottles in person before you buy.
