So it’s the third and final day of Zoya posts, at least until next week. Over the last couple days I have posted the Urban Grunge Metallic Holos and One Coat Creams. So today is of course color comparisons. In previous years I have swatched the color comparisons on my nails, as I know skin tone is very helpful in determining how these truly compare. However I knew that if I waited to swatch these on my actual nails we would all still be waiting on them by Halloween. So swatch wheels it is.
Zoya Britta vs Zoya Teigen vs Zoya India
As you can see no dupes here; Teigen is lighter, and India is darker. Anything else in this color range was shimmer or glitter with a very different finish. I swatched all of these with 2 coats, however Britta really only needs one coat.
Zoya Troy vs Zoya Claudine vs Zoya Tao vs Zoya FeiFei
There is really nothing else like Zoya Troy, so I picked out some of the more popular grey/grey-ish shades. All are 2 coats.
Zoya Ash vs Zoya Reva vs Zoya Sarah vs Zoya Kimmy
Zoya Ash and Zoya Sarah are very similar, but they aren’t dupes. Zoya Ash is a metallic red with a red gold shimmer. Zoya Sarah is a slightly darker metallic red with a fuchsia shimmer. Do you need both? I guess that depends on how much you love Zoya or red. Oh, and Ash is a one coater but Sarah does need two coats.
Zoya Courtney vs Zoya Nora vs Zoya Claire vs Zoya Pepper
So you are going to have to trust me a bit on these. Zoya Courtney and Zoya Pepper look very very close here, but my camera was being a bit deceitful. Courtney is a dark but bright brick red, while Pepper is quite a bit more muted and leans mire towards a classic brick red shade. And for what it’s worth Nora and Claire are different as well, Claire is a quite a bit darker and Nora has a soft pretty shimmer that none of the others have.
Zoya August vs Zoya Dove vs Zoya Carey
Zoya doesn’t have very many grey cremes so I just pulled out the other 2 primary grey shades. All very different.
Zoya Wyatt vs Zoya Shawn vs Zoya Hunter vs Zoya Jace
No dupes here. Not even close. I felt like Wyatt had the easiest formula, and Wyatt shows a little darker here than it actually is.
Zoya Mallory vs Zoya Sia vs Zoya Ling vs Zoya Dory
Zoya Mallory is a bit more muted than Sia. Sia is a bright bold cobalt blue, where Mallory is kind of between Sia and Ling. They are very similar, but the way I see it Zoya has been short on blue cremes for a long time so they are still getting caught up. And no such thing as too much blue polish. 🙂 I will mention though that I think Mallory has more stain potential than Sia.
Zoya Tara vs Zoya Margo vs Zoya Lidia
Zoya Tara is such a gorgeous color and I felt pretty sure I had plenty of similar shades. Definitely not the case. The closest I could find were Margo and Lidia. Margo is much lighter and pinker where Lidia leans more purple.
UPDATE: Added new comparisons for Zoya Finley and Zoya Troy.
Zoya Finley vs Zoya Aurora vs Zoya Payton
Zoya Troy vs Zoya Tris
Until next time, stay polished!
