Zoya Zenith Collection: Winter 2013

*Press Sample
Hi everyone, happy Tuesday.  Today I have a really exciting collection to show you, the Winter 2013 collection from Zoya called the Zenith Collection.  I saw the press release for these polishes and knew that this would be my favorite collection of the year, it even topped fall for me!  I love blue polishes and cool-toned polishes and these make up this entire collection.  Let's dive right in.


Seraphina is a silver shimmer that leans to the cool side of silver.  This polish was the perfect snowy winter polish.  The finish is gorgeous, just like glistening snow.  I used three thin coats for this polish to get it fully opaque.  The formula was good on this polish.  Three coats, no topcoat below.


Zoya calls Cassedy a pewter metallic whereas I would call Cassedy a green-leaning grey pewter shimmer.  Cassedy is gorgeous and it is unique from a typical grey shimmer polish.  I love the green tint to this polish, it really makes it feel festive.  This polish applied like a dream, two easy coats with no topcoat below.


Belinda is described as a cosmic purple metallic.  Belinda for me leans towards a blurple cool-toned metallic and I absolutely love it.  This polish has pink shimmer throughout and it just makes it so stunning and so glowy and vibrant.  Formula on this one was great, two coats without topcoat.


Payton is a wine colored holo polish and from the minute I put this one on, I was in love.  I normally don't gravitate towards the red spectrum but this one is a complete winner for me.  The color is a deep wine, plummy, deep cranberry color which feels so special and the holo is stunning.  Great formula on this one, two coats with topcoat.


Dream is a stunning cobalt blue holo polish like Payton.  It's blue, it's gorgeous, that is all :)  Two easy coats, no topcoat.


Mosheen is an icy blue glitter topper with microglitter and bar glitter.  I was skeptical I would like this one because of the bar glitter, however, the bar glitter was much smaller than those found in a typical polish.  I don't like bar glitter because it tends to stick up off of my nails and off of the edges creating little "catches" when the polish is dry.  This polish did not do that so I ended up really loving it.

First up is Mosheen over Seraphina.  This was the perfect icy winter mani combination.

Well if you can't tell, I loved this collection.  I've never said this before, but my picks would be all of them.  This is definitely my favorite collection of the year :)

If you have a comparison request feel free to drop me a comment.  I have already planned on comparing Cassedy to OPI Haven't The Foggiest.  Let me know if you have a request, have a great day everyone.
