More Zoya comparisons

Posted on

Disclosure:  All polishes except Julieanne were previously supplied by Zoya for review.

Happy Halloween!  Nothing ultra-Halloween today, although I am swatching/comparing some black and purple polishes.  These comparisons are by request — thanks!

First up, Thea from the new Wishes Collection vs. Carter from 2013 Fall PixieDust Collection.

Very similar in color and tone, but Thea has multiple sizes of glitter, plus holo glitter, and Carter has a more even sparkle.  In my opinion Thea is suitable as a top coat over other polishes and Carter wouldn’t be, as it would obscure another underlying polish.

Now Imogen from the new Wishes Collection vs. Dahlia from the first PixieDust set.

Like Thea and Carter, Imogen and Dahlia are very close in color but Imogen has the holo/multisized glitter and could be used as a one-coat top coat.  It’s hard to tell in the photo because of the flash, but Dahlia dries more matte to almost an “asphalt” look.

Finally, Julieanne from the 2010 Wicked Collection vs. Sansa from this fall’s Ignite Collection.

Julieanne Sansa bot

You can’t tell from the photos, but Julieanne’s base is dark blue, with purple, blue, and perhaps dark pink sparkle.  Sansa is a dark plum with gold sparkle.  Under the flash with the bottle of Sansa:

And under indirect outdoor light with the bottle of Julieanne:

Hope those quick swatches help when making decisions.  Have a great weekend and don’t eat all the Halloween candy!

  1. Thanks so much for these comparisons! I have Julianne on my nails right now. It does, as you say, have a blue base. But when I hold my hand up to my screen, my Julieanne looks more like your Sansa swatch than Julieanne. In direct sunlight it’s somewhere in between the two. Computer screens and cameras, I know. But it’s good to know they’re different and that I’m not going to end up with 3 bottles of essentially the same color. Really appreciate you doing this so quickly.

    Oh – I just learned that I Love Nail Polish is having a 30% sale site-wide, but it’s only today. Code ILNP30. Don’t know what it is about this time of year but apparently I’m powerless to resist nail polish deals!!

    Thanks again.
