Zoya Element Collection Swatches & Review


Zoya Element collection

Hello readers,
Today I have the Zoya Element collection for Fall 2018 to share with you. This collection features a mix of softer shades along with some vampy and metallic fall classics. Let's take a look at swatches.

Ruthie

Zoya RuthieZoya Element

Ruthie is light rose pink creme. The formula was nicely pigmented, easy to work with and took two coats for full coverage. Photos show two coats of Ruthie with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Rumor

Zoya RumorZoya Element

Rumor is a pale blush pink with a pearl shimmer. The formula was nicely pigmented and easy to work with taking two coats for full coverage. I found the brush strokes in this one were a little noticeable but the formula doesn't drag at all, so you can take a little extra time to minimize them. Photos show two coats of Rumor with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Maryann is a medium rosy pink with a pearl shimmer. The formula was nicely pigmented taking two coats for full coverage. There were some minor brush strokes in the finish for this one but nothing too obvious. Photos show two coats of Maryann with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Kendra

Zoya KendraZoya Element

Kendra is a medium muted plum creme. The formula was excellent taking two thin coats for full coverage. This dries relatively shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of Kendra with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Jenna

Zoya JennaZoya Element

Jenna is a light cool-toned pink creme. The formula was very easy to work with taking two thin coats for full coverage. This dries relatively shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit.

Devin

Zoya DevinZoya Element

Devin is a steel blue foiled shimmer with gold and copper flecks. The formula was easy to apply though I recommend waiting a little extra time between coats to avoid dragging. I used three coats here for full coverage, but it was so close after two that if you have shorter nails or a less distict nail line two will likely be enough. Photos show three coats of Devin with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Gardner

Zoya GardnerZoya Element

Gardner is a medium blurple foiled shimmer with magenta and gold flecks. The formula was similar to Devin, easy to apply but extra dry time between coats will help avoid dragging. Photos show two coats of Gardner with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Leighton

Zoya LeightonZoya Element

Leighton is a blackened plum creme. The formula was very pigmented taking two thin coats for full coverage. I think this one will make a good stamping polish as well. Photos show two coats of Leighton with one coat of CND Creative Play top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

My personal favorites from this release are Maeve and Leighton. Overall, the formulas of the cremes and pearl shimmers were consistently excellent. However, I found that this collection contained a lot of pink shades, as did the summer Sunshine Collection. I was hoping to see a bit more colour variety. The Element collection is available now. You can find Zoya on


Happy polishing,

Michelle
