Still trying to decide what to order for Zoya’s Earth Day Exchange? A comment from a reader reminded me (thanks!) that I have never swatched Sarah. And that’s a shame, because it’s one of my favorite reds.
Sarah is a cool-toned metallic red. Not too dark, not light — I’d call it medium-dark. Definitely not blackened. And more of a metallic than a subtle shimmer. Sarah is from the 2010 winter/holiday collection called Flame (may have originally been called Fire & Ice) and I only see three of the original six shades still for sale on Zoya’s site. The ones not there as of this writing are Tiffany, Valerie, and Lisa, which is too bad because those are great too.
Anyhoo, Sarah is a classic red, great for winter holidays or the 4th of July or Canada Day or just because you feel like wearing red. The formula is Zoya-typical-great and two coats might have been enough but I used three for a better photo. With no top coat under indirect cloudy outdoor light:
I love the name Sarah and the polish Sarah, too!
