Zoya Ignite Collection-Swatches and Review

*Press Samples
Hi everyone, welcome to Monday.  First day of Fall, woooooo!  Fall is my favorite season, hands down.  Yesterday we had all the windows open and the house was so brisk and cool inside.  I was snuggled up in a blanket with my fuzzy socks and had a pumpkin candle going....that's very Fall to me :)  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We didn't do much which was just fine with me.  I bought some new sweaters at Loft on Saturday and got into the show Criminal Minds on Netflix yesterday.  

Today I have the Zoya Ignite collection to share with you.  Normally I am a cream polish girl through and through but this collection blew me out of the water.  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I will just say here that every single polish had a fantastic formula.  I had no problems whatsoever and all swatches below are with topcoat.  Also, the video form of this review will be at the end.

Autumn-varnished copper with gold shimmer

Autumn is Fall in a bottle.  I will have comparisons soon....hint, it looked similar to Channing from last year but they are SO different out of the bottle.  If you thought Channing was too orange, Autumn is much more copper on the nail.  Very metallic and gorgeous.

India-deep ruby, burgundy red with gold shimmer

Spoiler alert, India made it into my Fall polish picks coming soon.  She's gorgeous, but I could say that about all of these.  The shimmer is stunning in this one and I kept it on for three days straight.  This polish is deep and vampy and I love how some of the shimmer gets covered up and ends up looking red on the nail.  I did have a small amount of pink left on my nails when I removed this one and I did use a basecoat.

Remy-deep blue green indigo with copper and gold shimmer

In my video I had to mention that Remy was everything that I had wanted Zoya's Charla to be.  Remy is a fantastic deep teal with strong shimmer and I loved everything about it.  Also as a bonus, I had absolutely no staining or smurf fingers upon removal and I wore this one for two days with one layer of basecoat.

Sansa-deep purple eggplant with tons of gold shimmer

The darkest offering of the collection, Sansa is a deep purple without venturing too far off into the black polish territory.  The shimmer stands out so much in this one though and it's stunning.

Teigen-pink-toned cranberry red with gold shimmer

Although I didn't expect to like this one, I really enjoyed Teigen which is a cross between a raspberry pink and a cranberry red depending on the lighting.  In pictures below it leans more pink but in daily life it does look more of a pinky red.  It's very unique in my opinion and very much surprised me.

Yuna-blue-grey slate with copper and gold shimmer

One of my favorites from this entire collection, this polish is in one unique league of its own.  This one was the first polish I tried and I've never seen anything like it.  The base color is a blue-grey slate and you really can see the color differences in both the copper and gold shimmer.  I had to look it up on Zoya's website after I applied it because I was so curious.  It's just a cool polish.

Overall I'm thrilled with this collection and it's my favorite to date with Zoya, hands down.  There's not a dud in the bunch and they all are truly stunning.  Let me know your thoughts below!
