Zoya Ignite Collection - Review & Swatches
I still owe you the second half of Zoya's Fall collection - Ignite. I've already reviewed the Entice collection here. The Ignite collection is full of deep shades with shiny metallic particles.
"Inspired by the classic wools, textured brocades and metallic accents of the season, Zoya's new ENTICE & IGNITE collections create a palette of lush, deep color including wines, browns, navies and treys."
Yuna - dark grey base with green undertones and metallic copper particles. Yuna is very interesting and very chic colour and it definitely goes with almost everything. I can imagine wearing this shade with black, green and blue clothes but also with white and denim. Great shade! I'm wearing two thin coat without topcoat.
Remy - dark blue leaning towards teal with gold flecks. Remy is like a dark mermaid-y colours, reminds me of Zoya Charla, only darker. I'm wearing two coats and no topcoat. Unfortunately I must say that Remy stains a little bit so double up on base coat!
Sansa - eggplant purple with gold particles. The base colour is very deep but the amount of gold particles lighten it up so it doesn't look too dark. I think Sansa is more suited for the winter season. Two thin coats were nicely opaque!
India - deep maroon red with gold metallic particles. India is gorgeous warm autumn shade that is a good alternative for red-lovers for the A/W season. I'm wearing two coats without topcoat.
Teigen - medium berry base full of metallic gold particles. Teigen is lighter than the other polishes in this collection and I don't think I have a dupe for it. All I needed were two regular coats for the coverage you see in the pictures.
Autumn - rusty copper base full of gold particles. Autumn looks the shiniest and the most metallic to me from the whole collection. I'm wearing two thicker coats and no topcoat.
I absolutely adore all the Ignite collection colours! I've always been a big fan of shimmers, metallics and other interesting finishes and Ignite is just spot on. At first I thought that India and Teigen are going to be the same because they look so similar in the bottles. But once I started applying them it was clear to me that they are very different.
All polishes had almost the same formula. They applied very easily and were opaque in two coats. Drying time was fast and they dried smooth. I would sill recommend wearing topcoat to extend the life of your manicure but my pictures show how the polishes look without topcoat.
This collection is available now directly from Zoya.com for $9 USD each, or $54 for the whole collection or at at The Nail & Beauty Link (UK) and at Nail Polish Direct (UK).
