Zoya Zenith Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Good morning and happy New Year's eve! 

  Today I want to share my swatches of the Zoya Zenith collection. As usual Zoya did an amazing, Six color, collection that perfectly captures the flash and sparkle of the Holiday season. I love that they can do this without creating colors that feel overdone or too typical. Brava for thinking out of the box Zoya! I was so happy to see Zoya revisit the holographic jelly- glassflecks, the painfully bright foils and the bar glitter glazes this year.

To see close up swatches, and have your retinas burnt by these amazing colors, continue reading ♥.
Zoya Cassedy
 Cassedy is described by Zoya as a celestial Pewter metal. I could not come up with a better description of this beautiful shade myself. In some lights it looks like a Graphite foil, in others it takes on a more Blue tone. As you can see it is an extremely bright and shiny foil finish, quite spectacular really. The formula is very easy to work with and did great in Two coats. 

Zoya Seraphina
Seraphina is an extremely unique shade. I was fully prepared to hate this color.... not entirely sure why. To my surprise, it ended up being one of my favorites from this collection. The best way I can describe this is as a Silvery- White or White-Silver. This baby is practically made up of micro shimmering particles and is also very bright and shiny. I can see any edgy bride wearing Seraphina. I used Two coats for my swatch. 

Zoya Dream
If you were a fan of Aurora and Storm from last year's Ornate collection, you will absolutely be needing Dream. Dream is a deep Cerulean Blue jelly packed with prismatic glassfleck and twinkling sparkle. This shade is soooo ridiculously sparkly that my camera had a bit of a spazz attack trying to capture it. This shade has a very smooth and even formula. I used Three thin coats for my swatch.

Zoya Payton
Along the same lines of Dream, we also have Payton. If you are into a classic vampy nail, but want a fun Holiday twist, Payton is the shade for you. I just love the rich shade of deep  burgundy of the jelly base. The holographic sparkle really bring this color to life. I used Three thin coats. 

Zoya Belinda
Belinda so linda! This shade is a Purple lover's dream. Belinda is a rich shade of deep Amethyst Purple. It is somewhere between metallic and smooth shimmer. Belinda has that "glow from within" quality that so many of us love. The formula on this shade is very impressive and practically applies itself. I used Two easy coats for my swatch. 

Zoya Mosheen
Mosheen is a fantastic bar glitter blend. I don't know how many of you remember the Gems collection from 2011 (or Elektra from last year's collection), but I love that they revisited the concept of bar glitter glazes. Mosheen is made up of densely packed icy Sky Blue iridescent glitter and bar glitter in a, barely-there, light Blue jelly base. This glitter topper is winter magic over any shade you layer it over. I used just one coat of Mosheen over my base colors. Mosheen dries a bit matte and lumpy so a good top coat is a must. Shown here with a top coat of Seche Vite.

 As usual I am in love with each and every single shade. I have a great appreciation for Zoya's ability to make Holiday polishes that always feel unique, to me at least. I love that there is a little bit of classic, a little bit of flashy and a little bit of playful in such a small release. 

Which of these pretties were/are on your Holiday wishlist? Have a safe and happy new year's eve everyone!!!
