I want to start off by saying that for whatever reason I feel like the descriptions provided by Zoya this time are way off. Maybe they have someone new writing descriptions. So I am including the description from Zoya followed by my own.
Haruko is described as a soft, violet metallic.
I would describe Haruko as a soft lilac creme witn a lilac/soft blue contrasting shimmer. The formula was a little thin on this one so be careful to avoid flooded cuticles. Two coats was fully opaque followed by a glossy top coat.
Brandi is described as a blush pink creme.
I would describe Brandi as a salmon pink creme, leaning more to the pink end but it definitely has salon undertones. Flawless perfected zoya creme formula. Sealed with glossy top coat.
Darby is described as a dusty, gull gray metallic.
I would describe Darby as a dusty blue creme with grey undertones and a bright blue contrasting shimmer. Two flawless coats with glossy top coat.
Trudith is described as a muted, wisteria purple creme.
This is the only one where I feel like their description is on point. I absolutely love everything about this shade. I never wanted to take it off. For some reason this feels like a wisteria version of Zoya Rue to me. Maybe because they are both perfection in a bottle. Maybe because it’s easily my second favorite Zoya after Rue. And I feel like this would suit all skin tones. Ahhh just love love love it. This is 2 flawless coats with glossy top coat.
Leisel is described as a sheer, sparkling topper.
Oh Zoya what are you thinking with these descriptions? Am I the only one who thinks descriptions are as almost as important as swatches themselves? I would describe Leisel as a purple/pink/mauve scattered holo microglitter topper. This one just doesn’t do much for me. I’m kinda over toppers. How many toppers can one polish addict need? Shown is one coat over Trudith followed with glossy top coat.
Monroe is described as a glamour pink creme.
I would describe Monroe as a bright cerise pink creme. Another one that I absolutely love! Another flawless creme formula too. Zoya cremes are always fantastic. This is 2 coats with glossy top coat.
For some nail art I started with a solid white base, and added some dry brush strokes with all 6 shades from the Thrive collection. I finished it up with a little stamping from Lina Plates Make your Mark 04.
I love this collection! If the bottles haven’t won you over look up lots of swatches, for real. It made all the difference for me. They all had a flawless formula, despite Haruko being a bit thin. My personal favorites are Brandi, Trudith, and Monroe.
Which do you plan on picking up or have you already grabbed your faves?
