Mainstream Swatch and Review - Zoya Sophisticates Collection (Part II)

Press Sample

Hello lovely reader. Today I have six more polishes from the new Zoya Sophisticate collection.

The new Zoya Sophisticate collection for Fall 2017 is comprised of 12 polishes. Most polishes are cremes with shades ranging from nudes and rose neutrals to sultry blues and reds.

I reviewed the pink and neutral tones here.

Today I am reviewing the six earthy and darker shades.

Elaine
This polish is a blackened brown glossy creme. The formula is a bit patchy on the first coat, and it may take at least two coats to self-level. Also, I found this polish to look darker on the nail vs the the bottle. Shown below are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Gal
This polish shimmery light peridot. The color applies looks very light after the first coat, so I recommend applying two to three thin coats to build opacity, and waiting three to five minutes in between coats. Shown below are three thin coats plus glossy top coat.

Hadley
Zoya describes this polish as a midnight blue creme. The shade has a bit of green undertones and it is a bit darker in real life. The formula is great, covering and self-leveling after one coat. Shown below are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Tabitha
This is a forest green shimmery polish with a glossy finish. It does need two easy coats to become opaque. Shown below are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Ivonne
This polish is a dusty reddish creme. This too has a great formula, covering and self-leveling after one coat. However, it may stain your cuticles, so beware! Shown below are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Overall, this is another strong collection from Zoya. The color range offers a bit of something for all tastes and the formulas are also outstanding, specially the cremes.
