Zoya Cosmic Pop Swatches

Hey guys! The end of October is drawing near. The weather has cooled significantly and my little one is now 2.5! He is starting preschool next week. Time sure flies by fast. We are squeezing in a trip to a local family run farm with a pumpkin patch tomorrow and I hope he’ll have lots of fun. This post is on something long overdue and I’m actually kicking myself internally over not getting to it earlier. Here are swatches for the Zoya Cosmic Pop Collection.

Zoya Cosmic Pop Collection

First up is Celestia.

Zoya Celestia

Celestia is a beautiful silver holographic glitter shade. It is described as “a silver-pearlescent, densely packed rainbow holographic”. Formula for this one is a little bit on the thin side but applied beautifully. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

Next up is Polaris.

Even before reading the description of this shade on their website, I thought to myself “this is a nice rose gold-ish holographic glitter shade” not realizing that is exactly what it is, a rose gold shade. It is described as “a rose gold densely packed holographic with a veil of color”. Formula for this shade is nice as with the other 2 in this collection. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

Lastly, we have Eradani.

Eradani is the surprise for me in this collection. Aside from me being a fan of magenta shades, a thin layer of this looks unassuming but when you apply more coats or thicker coats it is simply stunning. It is described as “a magenta densely packed holographic with a kiss of color that is buildable”. Formula is the same as the other ones in this collection. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

I initially read the description too fast and thought these were holographic shades so I was a bit disappointed since true holographic shades are simply awesome and one of my favorite types of nail polish. Realizing they were holographic glitter shades, I thought they’d be similar to their Pixie Dust formula. But this collection holds its own and it does not have that same gritty texture that the Pixie Dust shades end up with. I chose to showcase them in this collection post as is (like how they look in the most basic way) and will be posting a follow-up post on another take or application of these shades. All 3 shades on their website states that they “can be worn plain as a soft semi-textured finish or paired with a high-density top coat like Ultra Glossy Seal to create a high-shine and smooth finish to encapsulate the texture.”

I think this would make a nice gift for the holiday season for the nail polish lover in your life.
