The Zoya Satins continued to impress me today, starting with Zoya Claudine. Claudine is a super shimmery dark gray metallic. It's so dark it's nearly black, but you can still tell that it is actually a deep gray.  The shimmer in this one is stunning! It's so shimmery it almost has an olive green cast to it. I LOVE this polish!! Just gorgeous!


Claudine has a flawless formula. So flawless in fact, that my index nail has only one coat on it! Can you tell? I wasn't expecting this to be a one-coater, so I wasn't very careful applying the other nails. But if you were expecting it, you could definitely do one coat. Fantastic pigmentation and buttery feel!

I am starting to think that Zoya has mind-reading abilities because I have been wishing for a blurple metallic just like this! This gem is Zoya Neve and it is a stunning shimmering tanzanite purple. That's my description because I recently found out what tanzanite looks like, thanks to Lynnderella, and this is a match! (There will be a Lynnderella Tanzanite Truth and Zoya Neve mani in my future, they are perfect for each other).


The only downside to this beautiful color is the thin, almost runny formula. It kept wanting to pool into my cuticles and the sides of my nail beds. I had to be really careful and also clean up some areas. I also had to use three coats because the first two were a tad streaky. I thought was strange because the other Satins are all so good. Maybe I got a bad bottle?

Zoya Giovanna... I don't have words for how much I love this!! What an incredible emerald metallic!! It's so reflective and is a real true emerald, not too blue leaning. A must for green lovers everywhere. Giovanna was originally designed for the Zang Toi A/W13 fashion show. If I were a fashion designer, my models would wear this polish for sure. I did not even want to take this off to keep swatching!


Happily, Giovanna has an excellent formula and only needs two coats, so you do not need to suffer to wear this beautiful polish. You can see some VNL in my pictures, but it really was not there in person. My camera did that weird thing where it makes some shimmery polishes look sheer in the sunlight.


Overall, the Satins collection is probably my favorite Zoya collection in recent history, possibly in all of history. I already have plans to wear some of these with glitter on top and they look incredible all on their own too. I'll be wearing these all fall and winter, just try to take them away from me! Usually I tell you my top picks from a collection, but honestly it's impossible here because I love them all!

The Zoya Satins are available now at Zoya.com.
