Zoya Ornate Collection - Winter/Holiday 2012 - Swatches & Review

Today, I am bringing you the Zoya Ornate Collection.  This has to be one of my all time favorites.  I am a little late bringing this collection to you, I had it all finished and scheduled to post months ago, then realized it never posted.  Keep your eyes open for a Mardi Gras Giveaway that includes some of the colors from this collection.  Later this week I will have the new Spring Lovely Collection post for you.

I used 2 coats of polish on each swatch, followed by a fast drying  top coat.  I do think I should have used thinner coats, 2 would have worked for most, some would have required  to achieve full opacity.  I tend to apply polish heavy handed sometimes and I really need to work on that.  I love each color from this collection, but would have to say Aurora is my favorite!

Aurora can be best described as a full coverage, medium sugarplum purple flecked with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter.


Blaze can be best described as a full coverage, cool-toned medium mulberry red with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. 

Storm can be best described as a full coverage, holiday black with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. 


This is Storm with an accent finger of Electra, which can be described as a silver holographic/bar glitter.  (Update:  I can only find the Electra color spoon on Zoya's website at the moment for Electra, hopefully they are just out and will be producing more soon.)


Storm topped with Electra.


Logan can be best described as a full coverage, yellow-toned forest green with dense, foil-like yellow-gold and blue-green duochrome shimmer!


Logan with an accent finger topped with Gilty, which is an 18 karat gold flake top coat.  (Gilty is $35 and you can purchase it alone or in the 3 piece collection for $45, both with free shipping.)

Ziv can be best described as a full coverage, yellow-toned metallic gold foil with silver highlights and warm gold flake glitter accents. 

Each polish from the Ornate Collection can be purchased at Zoya.com for $8 each.  Which one is your favorite?
