Zoya: Ornate Collection (Swatches)

Hey Monkeys! Today I have the Zoya Ornate collection for you and it's a great one. They're all available now at Zoya for $8 and include holos...Here we go... single swatches after the jump

 Aurora is a medium purple that is packed with holographic glitter. This is two coats,  the above picture is blurred a bit to show the holographic properties and the below is in focus, both are direct sunlight.

 Blaze is a raspberry base with the same holographic glitter. It seems to have a little less than Aurora but still fantastic, 2 coats and in direct sunlight (below picture is blurred to show sparkle)

Logan is an emerald green with this fantastic lime and gold shimmer to it. This is 2 coats under a daylight lamp.  
Ziv- How I love a gold foily polish. This was two coats and no top coat. The formula on it is good but takes a little longer to dry, 2 thin coats with dry time between would avoid drag. Ziv has what looks like gold particles in a clear base (apparent with only one coat). The second makes it 95% opaque and it is super light reflective. Quite the holiday polish, I'd say it's on par.

Electra is a holographic silver bar glitter that is super super dense. I did one coat over each Ornate color. Things I love about Electra: how it looks over Ziv, how dense it is, holographic qualities. Things I didn't like: bar glitter in general tends to hang over the end of your nail when applied so you have to tame it. 

You can follow Zoya on Facebook, Twitter and on their blog.
