At this point it must have been over two years ago when I walked into Ulta to see they had started carrying Zoya. I was super excited because in high school I was a Zoya devotee. Well, 2 years later, and this is still the only Zoya polish in my collection. Go figure!
Originally from the Wicked and Wonderful collection, Edyta is a gorgeous blackened olive green packed with gold microglitter. The finish of this polish, which reminds me a bit of Hard Candy Mr. Wrong, is almost metallic. Absolutely gorgeous and quite complex. I definitely forgot how much I loved this polish.
Because of the metallic finish the formula is a bit on the thin side. I used 3 coats in my swatches and was happy with the color.
Considering how much I love this polish it begs the question why don’t I have more Zoya polishes in my collection? Honestly, I think it’s the names. I’m a sucker for fun or descriptive names. Ridiculous, but true!
Anyway, I think this is a perfect Christmas Eve manicure. Green is a greatly underappreciated (I think I just made that word up…) holiday manicure option.
Below the jump there are more swatches plus a couple of pictures of the Edyta spoon (if you’re unfamiliar with Zoya spoons you can read more about them here. I’m personally not a fan. This polish looks significantly better on my nails than on the spoon which is why I included the below pictures).
