Pretty Zoya Nudes: Review, Photos, Swatches

Zoya Ginessa, Ella, and Danielle

Work Friendly Nudes with Zoya Ginessa, Ella, and Danielle

Zoya is a brand that I just recently got into. They are not as widely available as some other brands, which is perhaps why I had not heard of them before. Their polishes are toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor free. They are also vegan friendly. They offer a wide variety of over 300 colors, plus they release four (4) seasonal collections each year. Each polish retails for $8.00 US, however Zoya is constantly offering promotions to it's loyal customers!
  • Ginessa is a gorgeous sheer white base packed with shimmering silvery white microglitter. It applied smoothly and evenly, though it was a little more sheer than I expected given the intensity rating on Zoya's website. I used 3 coats and you can still see my nail line. I suspect 4 or 5 coats would be needed to reach total opacity. (This could just be on my nails though, as I have rather thick nails, so the free edge is pretty white.)
  • Ella is a light peachy nude with very subtle microshimmer. This shade is meant to be very sheer and it definitely holds to that. I applied 5 coats and you can still see my nail line. I found that this shade didn't apply as evenly as the others, but that might have been because I applied so many coats.
  • Danielle is a pale soft pink with a very very subtle silver shimmer. It's noticeable in the bottle, but on the nail it's almost nonexistent. This shade is also meant to be very sheer. I applied 4 coats and found that they applied very smoothly and evenly.
