Sophisticates by Zoya Nail Polish.

Hi guys! Today I have a look at the Sophisticates collection available right now from Zoya Nail Polish! This collection was sent to me for review and retails at $10 a bottle. Overall I think this is a fantastic collection to segue-way into the fall and winter seasons although I did find the formula on the whole a little more thin than I expect from their cremes.

ZMcKennaBottle
McKenna shown at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is McKenna, a soft almond nude with a very subtle shimmer. This polish was perfectly opaque for me in 2 thinner coats.

ZPadmaBottle
Padma shown at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Padma, described as a “deep, vermillion red cream.” I got much stronger pink tones from this polish and it is gorgeous!

ZHeraBottle
Hera shown at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Hera, a muted, red mauve cream. This is another polish that gave me pretty strong pink tones but I’m not mad at it.

ZHadleyBottle
Hadley shown at 1 coat under artificial lighting.

This is Hadley, described as a ” smokey, midnight blue cream.” I did get some strong deep teal vibes here too, this polish is super dark and vampy on the nail and I am about it!

ZTabithaBottle
Tabitha shown at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Tabitha, a gorgeous shimmery deep forest color that reminds me of a glossy Verushka! This polish did have some minimal brush stroking and built up nicely in 2-3 coats depending on application.

ZGalBottle
Gal shown at 3 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Gal, a flaky gold peridot polish. The texture here reminds me a bit of Ziv which is one of my all time favorite Zoya polishes! This one did start out a little on the sheerer side but built up in 3 thicker coats.

ZElaineBottle
Elaine shown at 2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Elaine, a warm toned dark brown umber creme. This polish starts out a little squishy like a syrupy jelly polish in the best way and built up to full opacity in 2 easy coats.

ZMonaBottle
Mona shown at 1-2 coats under artificial lighting.

This is Mona, a deep, burgandy plum cream. This polish is so creamy and vampy and the perfect embodiment of a fall red! I had easy coverage in 1-2 coats depending on application.

Lastly today I have Yvonne, a  rich, bordeaux red cream. This polish does have some bright red notes in it as well and I did have minor cuticle staining but easy application in 2 coats.
