Good afternoon! I hope you are all having a wonderful, warm Monday! We had a pretty chilly weekend here in the deep South but things are starting to warm up nicely. More fall-like for sure! Now that Halloween is behind us, it’s time to start planning the Thanksgiving meals and knock out some holiday before things get too busy.
October, November, and December are certainly my favorite time of the year. You go from one awesome holiday to the next, spend much needed time with family, enjoy good comforting cooking, and tons of new products are being released. One thing for sure you will see every year is new polish collection and Zoya is one of those brands that never disappoints when it comes to their holiday collection.
This year’s collection from Zoya is titled Twinkling and consists of 12 great vibrant shades with various finishes. Today’s post is very picture heavy so let’s dive into the new Twinkling collection from Zoya.
First up we have Kaede. This shade is described as a gold metallic fleck with holographic foil. The base of this shade is clear so you can choose to layer it for a more opaque finish or wear it over a coordinating base shade. You know me, I had to layer for a full glitter bomb look. In my photos, I am wearing two thick coats of Kaede from Zoya with a coat of clear to smooth things out.
One shade that would make a great base to Kaede is Enza, also part of the new Twinkling Collection. Enza is a macadamia cream that would be subtle for any work environment or holiday gathering. Application and formula were perfect which is hard to pull off with nude base shades. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Enza by Zoya.
Next up we have another subtle shade. Steph is described as a muted Winter pink cream with warm undertones. This is such a unique shade of pink and would certainly make a great addition to any polish collection. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Steph by Zoya.
Now for something a little darker. Mai is described as a sophisticated rosewood cream. I surprisingly loved this shade, while I tend to not lean towards these types of shades Mai worked beautifully with my skin tone! In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Mai by Zoya.
Next up we a little less traditional shade is holiday collection but one I was very happy to see! Tieran is described as a medium-toned charcoal cream. Everything about this shade was just perfect, formula and opacity were on point. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Tieran by Zoya.
Now no holiday collection would be complete without this next shade. Tanya is described as a festive candy red cream. This might just be my new favorite red cream, the color is vibrant and formula perfect. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Tanya by Zoya.
Next, we are breaking up the cream trend. Rosa is described as a bright and cheerful fuchsia with a pearl effect. I just loved this shade and that pearl shimmer is just perfect. There is NO STREAKING which is a huge win for me! In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Rosa by Zoya.
Now something for you purple lovers! Gabi is described as a midnight purple aborigine cream. I loved the richness and the heavy pigmentation means this one will also be a great stamping shade. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Gabi by Zoya.
Next up we have yet another unique and surprising favorite for me. Sedona is described as warm spiced mahogany with a pearl effect. I loved this shade so much, the depth and shimmer are just stunning in person. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Sedona by Zoya.
Next up we have Jen, my number one pick from the Twinkling collection. Jen is described as a royal sapphire blue with a hint of purple. The shimmer and depth are simply stunning. This is certainly my favorite from the collection and most likely going to be my favorite from all holiday collections this year. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Jen by Zoya.
Next up we have another blue shade, which makes me super happy to see! Alessia is described as an icy blue metallic with hints of silver. For a metallic based shade, this lacquer applied perfectly and had zero streakings. In my photos, I am wearing just two coats of Alessia by Zoya.
Lastly, we have Jett, and probably one of the more unique shades I have seen from Zoya. Jett is described as a frosted silver with a flakey texture that dries down matte. I personally didn’t care for the matte finish, it came off as cast aluminum so I decided to throw on a coat of clear and I fell in love. In my photos, I am wearing two coats of Jett by Zoya and one coat of clear.
So what do you guys think of the new Twinkling Collection from Zoya? First, I’m thrilled they added two different blue shades and both in stunning finishes! Second, I love the great mix of finishes so there is certainly something for everyone. Longtime readers know my love for Zoya and they certainly have not disappointed this year. Be sure to not only check out the new Twinkling Collection but all the other amazing other shades Zoya has to offer. Thank you so much for stopping by this lovely Monday and I will see you all again soon!
