Zoya Zara

With Europe’s “The Final Countdown” still playing in my head (the song that Zoya’s Facebook comment triggered at the start of their 20,000 fans promo), I present to you all a wonderful light shade that’s a big favorite among Zoya fans. Part of their Flourish Collection, this shade is beautifully named Zara.

Zoya Zara

This shade is described as “vivid blue-toned light purple with strong golden duochrome shimmer.” Duochrome isn’t as strong as other duochrome shades they have, but it is evident both in and out of the bottle. The golden shimmer shines through stronger under sunlight. Formula is on the thin side, but application was smooth. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

See the golden duochrome shimmer? It’s quite stunning. I hope this swatch isn’t going to make the last day of Zoya’s Facebook promo much harder on any of you out there still deciding on what your 3 shades will be. 🙂

  2. I’m actually sitting out this Zoya promo … I have so much polish already and pretty much all the Zoya colors I want right now (including Zara). 🙂

    • I tried to, but I got too many Zoya’s I like to pass up. My co-workers created accounts too for this deal. They like to see me happy, I guess. 🙂

    • Do you have salons there that carry Zoya? I know that they can’t ship internationally right now, so they couldn’t extend the offer internationally.
