Then I went to the mall to pick up OPI Metro Chic. Silly me, i forgot that stuff dries darker, so it's actually a shade darker than i wanted. And more purple. I wanted a color that borders purple and gray, but it's a grayed out purple. All the online swatches are so misleading, but now that i think about it, purple is hard to capture right on camera. For over $10.. i can't decide whether to keep or return. Also tried it without a top coat just to see. chipped and flaked in <24 hrs. My maybelline doesn't even chip that fast.
AND YES, EVEN MORE zoya color spoons. One has to wonder if I actually like the polishes or just the multicolored spoons. BUT, this time, I found a color that I definitely want to get, . This will be the last time I do a whole comparative swatch of all the spoons- gets a bit much to look at. Next time, I'll just select similar shades and do those comparisons. ENLARGE to see details
The shades I got this time- no flash and flash:
L to R, Top to Bottom: Zanna, Flora, Jolene, Carmen
Indigo, Ibiza, Lauren, Brizia, Fawne, Piper
Zanna: dusty mauve?
Flora: a pink. i wish it were a shade lighter
Jolene: waaay brighter pink than I thought it would be. I'd consider it a hot pink.
Carmen: a beautious true red
Indigo: Deep Blue with multicolored glitter! Love!
Ibiza: intense deep blue, more rich hue than Indigo
Brizia: LOVE. definitely one to get, has a slight blue-ish silver-ish shimmer quality
Fawne: Dusty shimmery rose
Piper: warm medium pink
The whole family: Why so many? in case you're interested in a particular color - this can help you see all the facets of it. Or maybe the color didn't capture right in one picture, it shows that it might actually look a bit like something else.
And closeups: view color comments below.
Indigo/ Ibiza/ yasmeen are much darker irl.
Zara is a redder purple
Buffy is slightly pink
Brizia is a tidge more brown
Fawne/ Addison are a tidge more pink and brighter
Actually, all of them are "brighter" in quality
Jolene is neon pink
So far I decided to buy Ki, Pasha, Brizia, Haley, Caresse, Delilah, Jaime, Clara, Gaia, and Indigo.
Unless they get more colors of interest, Zoya can rest easy that I won't keep ordering color spoons. Good thing they didn't add in another sample of their newest lines. Was accumulating too many and didn't know how to tell them I don't want anymore.
Til Next time!
