I've got Pru and Tess to show you first. Pru is a purpley-pinky, soft dusty color with a gold shimmer in it. It's a pretty unusual color, and I really like how different it is from the purples or pinks I own. Tess is a pretty incredible rose metallic that I took a total gamble on buying, as I couldn't find many decent swatches. Below is a SINGLE coat of Tess! Incredible!

Next, I've got Rica and Tiffany. I was a little worried when I bought Tiffany that it would be too similar to Rica, but I was pleasantly surprised as to how different they were. Rica has much brighter pink and orange tones, while Tiffany is a nice pinkish-gold shimmer. I think Rica would be a great version of this pinky-orange-gold for the summer, and Tiffany a perfect option for the fall/winter.

I recently discovered that I actually look okay in orange, so I bought a few oranges from Zoya to enjoy. Kaufda is a reddish copper that is pretty unusual and very, very flattering. I chose Pia to get a brighter orange that wasn't a neon creme. I'm not sure how Pia compares to, say, Lianne, Elise, Ginger or Sienna, but I do like how brilliant it looks, and it has a nice shimmer. I did have visible nail line with 2 coats, I think a third would be in order to make sure that's all covered up.

These next polishes aren't similar at all, so the comparison part of the manicure is kind of moot, but they are both fabulous summery pinks. Ali is a super neon pink that dries with a rubbery, semi-matte finish (like most neons), while Rory is a metallic lavender-pink that applies like a dream. I could've easily gotten away with one careful coat for each of these polishes, but I did two to be safe.

Sparkle pink! I love both of these sparkly pinks. Astra is packed with magenta and silver glitter in a clear base; it's kind of amazing how well it covers without being gritty or gummy. With two coats of Astra, I didn't have any visible nail line. I swatched it next to Gilda, which is hands-down the best pedicure pink ever. It's a glassfleck cool-leaning pink that just pops without being a typical neon. It's a great base color for watermelon nail art too! The visible nail line in this picture isn't as noticeable in person, but a third coat would eliminate it for sure.

Next, the reds! Jade is the first, a jelly-like red glitter polish. The glitter is very subtle, but the tint of red is a particularly classic red, so it'd be a good go-to for glamour.
Next we have Nidhi and Reva. Nidhi is a warm-leaning red with gold/blue microglitter in it. This color is super hard to capture, as it has a subtlety in its blue flashes and gold shimmer that you probably need to experience in person. Next is Reva, a darker red with straight gold shimmer, a simpler color but with a bolder impact.

Finally the vampiest of the bunch, Blair and Valerie. Blair is a deep burgundy with a glowing shimmer that looks just gorgeous, and is going to be perfect for winter drama. Valerie, probably technically a cool color but very warm-leaning, is possibly one of the greatest polish colors ever, so I saved it for last (best for last and all). Valerie is a dark purple/burgundy base with gold/silver/possibly some green shimmer to it. I'm always surprised when I put it on, as to how fascinating a color it is.

Check in later this week for the cool-toned Zoyas I have!
