Zoya Sophisticates Fall 2017

9:38 AM

Today I have a new Zoya collection to show you! This is the Sophisticates collection for Fall 2017.  I'll admit I was a little disappointed in this one. Most of the colors are creams and while they're lovely and I do love a good cream I just felt like it was a little boring. The formula on them is pretty amazing though, like all my Zoya polishes.  The creams were opaque in two coats (some in one) and they go on smooth and glossy. You can check out my Instagram videos for a close up of how they're formula is. I did have an issue with one but I'll explain that under the picture. Onward!

McKenna by Zoya can be best described as a refined pearl in a soft almond. This one has a hint of shimmer to it. The color is a nice neutral but it just didn't work on my fair skin.

Beth by Zoya can be best described as a soft, sandy, champagne metallic. I expected to dislike this one because it's really not my thing at all. It's slightly purple but not enough to really BE purple and it also leans just barely pink.  It turned out to be a lovely color on me though and it's just shimmery enough to be pretty and pearly.

Presley by Zoya can be best described as a smokey, mauve taupe cream. I'm meh on this one. The formula was great, as always. Check out that crazy shine (no topcoat)! Also please excuse the two little bumps. Polishing with a two month old is tricky! Anyway the color on this just doesn't wow me. 

Joni by Zoya can be best described as a deep, dusty plum cream. This one is lovely but again it just didn't excite me at all.

Hera by Zoya can be best described as a muted, red mauve cream.

Padma by Zoya can be best described as a deep, vermillion red cream.

Yvonne by Zoya can be best described as a rich, bordeaux red cream.

Mona by Zoya can be best described a deep, burgandy plum cream. Now we're getting into more exciting stuff. I don't know why because reds aren't my thing but I fell for this one hard. It's just TOO gorgeous. It was also very opaque in one coat. But this is two. ;)

Elaine by Zoya can be best described a dark, umber brown cream. This is another one that I HEART majorly. It's definitely dark brown but it's also just slightly reddish and warm and it's SO creamy.

Hadley by Zoya can be best described a smokey, midnight blue cream. This one is another favorite of mine. It's like a super dark teal. Another that was very opaque on the first coat.

Tabitha by Zoya can be best described a refined pearl in a deep hunter green. This one is another pearl finish and it's really pretty but not my favorite just because I don't love the color.  I think this one would be stellar matte but I forgot to try it out. It did take two coats too as the first is quite sheer.

Gal by Zoya can be best described a smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic. Now this one I wanted to love so badly. It was the one I was most excited about when I first saw promo's for this collection.  I thought it was going to be a rich gold color but it really is almost green. It has a gold shift to it but it's so sheer that it doesn't really look like much on your nails. Believe it or not this is TWO coats of this one. Just for comparison purposes I went ahead and did another two coats for a total of four coats...

...and it looks better but it's still rather sheer.  I didn't try layering it like a topcoat but you MIGHT be able to get away with that. Although it's going to tint whatever you put it over slightly green.  

Which Sophisticate is your favorite?
