Mainstream Swatch and Review - Zoya Element Collection (Part I)

Press Samples

Hello readers! Today I have Part I of the Zoya Element collection for Fall 2018.

nail polish swatch and review of the Zoya Element collection for Fall 2018


The Zoya Element collection features 12 shimmers and cremes that range from muted pinks and berries to vampy reds and blues. It also includes two specialty polishes packed with shimmer.

In Part I, I will sharing my swatches of Devin, Rumor, Jenna, Ruthie, Maryann, and Kendra.

Devin
This is one of two specialty polishes. It is a chrome-leaning blue polish featuring multicolor shimmer and a foil finish. I really like that it does not have much (or any) texture when dry and that it removes easily with a bit of acetone. It is packed with shimmer, however, which makes the formula thick. I need three coats to self-level and go over some patchy areas.

Shown below are three coats plus glossy top coat.

Rumor
This is a light mauve polish with gold shimmer. The formula is opaque and self-levels after two coats, but some brush strokes may be visible.

Shown are two coats plus top glossy coat.

Jenna
This is a dusty pink-lilac creme. The formula is classic Zoya, covering and self-leveling in one easy coat.

Shown are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Maryann
This gold rose polish features a subtle red shimmer that glows from within. It is also the 'shimmer' version of Ruthie, shown above. The formula is very nice, covering and self-leveling in two easy coats.

Shown are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Kendra
This is a red-brown earthy creme. Again, the formula is classic Zoya, covering and self-leveling in one easy coat. But we aware, this color is richly saturated and it may stain your cuticles and nails. [Tip: use a base coat and and avoid flooding your cuticles when painting your nails to reduce staining.]

Shown are two coats plus glossy top coat.

Zoya Element for Fall 2018


Overall, I am loving this collection. The cremes are dreamy and neutral for the season, while Maryann has a shimmer and color that makes it perfect to wear year round.

These polishes are available here and retail for $10 US.
