Today I have the metallics that were released as part of Zoya's latest winter holiday collection called Zenith. It seems that metallics and shimmers are really big this fall, and Zoya has been a frontrunner in producing some gorgeous colors in these finishes. All of the metallics I tried had perfect formulas and I had no difficulty applying these. There was no pooling or streaking upon application and most of the colors were nearly opaque in one coat but I used two for optimal coverage. No topcoat in any of these pics so you can see its natural shine.
First is Seraphina, a soft silvery white metallic that has a foil finish. Zoya describes it as a full coverage, Polaris silver metallic. This is a perfect winter shade and reminds me of freshly fallen snow in the night glistening in the moonlight. Of all the shades I used, this one was probably the most sheer after two coats.
Next is Zoya Belinda, a stunning and super saturated blue leaning purple metallic. Zoya describes this as a fully coverage, cosmic purple metallic. This was highly pigmented and I could have probably gotten away with one carefully applied coat. Once applied, it makes my fingers look like purple Christmas ornament balls.
The last metallic of the Zoya Zenith Collection is Cassedy, a breathtaking gunmetal silver that never stays as one shade. It's like 50 shades of grey on my nails! Zoya describes this as a full coverage, celestial pewter metallic. I don't think I have anything similar to this in my arsenal. The finish is foil like as well, as you can see below.
Finally, I have the glitter that was released as part of the Zenith collection, called Mosheen. Looking at the bottle, it reminds me of those blue-ish white garlands that I see hung up during the holidays. Mosheen is made of iridescent string glitter and microglitter in a clear base, and one coat gives plenty of coverage. I had some mild patchiness but I think it may be due to how much glitter I wiped off the neck before applying to the nail. I noticed that was more visible on darker shades than lighter shades, so I chose to apply this over Belinda. It instantly gave this purple a festive wintery feel.
The Zenith collection is available now on the Zoya website and at your local beauty supply. If you subscribe to the Zoya blog, you'll often come across promotions for free shipping or BOGO. Ulta sometimes has promotions too and you can get coupons monthly that are applicable towards Zoya. My favorites of the above are Cassedy and Belinda, but Seraphina nad Mosheen are both versatile as well. There are also two more Zenith polishes, Dream which I swatched earlier, and Payton, a purple scattered holographic jelly that I hope to post sometime soon. Have you tried any of the Zeniths yet, and which one is your favorite?
