Zoya Reverie Collection for Spring '10

Zoya Reverie Collection

Product: Zoya Reverie Spring Collection, Nail Lacquer .5 oz
Retail Price: $36.00/kit or $7.00 /ea
Steph's Rating: 3.8 Kisses
Buy it: Art of Beauty
Big 3 Free: Yes

It's officially Spring, and to celebrate let's kick off this gorgeous Saturday with Zoya's latest and greatest collection.

Reverie brings us six new colorful shades in a metallic-like finish. So you're thinking - metallic, stroke lines, painful application...? No, these are much different. I'd actually classify these as shimmer based metallics, with very minor brush strokes. A huge plus!

Each color is infused with an "oil-slick" or iridescent shimmer that flashes different colors. The application is near perfection. If you have stark white tips like myself, you'll need three coats for complete coverage; otherwise two should get the job done.

Check out the swatches!

Zoya Laney Nail Polish

Laney is a silver metallic with green iridescent shimmer. The duochrome effect isn't too strong - just a touch for that perfect glow. 

Zoya Happi Nail Polish

Happi - a sweet bubblegum pink with gold iridescent shimmer. It's very feminine and bound to make you smile all day long.

Zoya Gwin Nail Polish

Gwin is a bright, coral-orange with gold iridescent shimmer. This is a great summer color, the vivid orange pops against tan skin tones.

Zoya Reece Nail Polish

Reece - a little bit of magenta pink and rose with gold iridescent shimmer. Even if you don't love pink, this is fabulous! 

Zoya Adina Nail Polish

Zoya Adina Nail Polish over Black

Adina, named after the lovely beauty blogger from Krasey Beauty, is the only true duochrome from the Reverie collection. It's a stunning purple with green and gold iridescent shimmer.

In my second swatch above, Adina is layered over black and you can start to see the green, pink and purple duochrome effect. Simply Stunning!

Zoya Lana Nail Polish

Lana is a deep red-orange with gold iridescent shimmer.

Check out additional swatches in a video slideshow below.  

To view in HD, make sure you change the resolution to 720p or 1080p in the bottom right hand corner of the YouTube player.

Overall, Awesome!! The phrase "seeing is believing" certainly applies to Zoya's Reveire. It's ten times better in real life. A great collection for shimmer and metallic lovers. Smooth application and Big 3 Free formula.

Has anyone picked up The Reverie Collection? What are your faves?

Ooh, loving them on you! I have the entire collection -- bought the kit for $36. As of now I can't name a favorite yet, but believe it or not I love Laney on my toes more than on my tips. I really don't know which one to call my favorite yet since I haven't yet worn Adina or Lana on my tips. But I love Reece and Happi on my tips.

Hi Samantha,
Aww, thank you! I totally believe it, Laney would be super hot on toes! I'll have to try that this summer! :)

Gwin is still my favorite (thought it would be from the bottle pics). Not sure if I'll pick it up, though. I haven't had the best luck with their polishes. Stained my nails really badly, and I've been afraid to try them again. Maybe I'd have better luck with a different base coat (I was using Anchor when I got the stains)?

Hi Jamie,
Gwin is such a pretty orange! I've never experienced any staining issues with Zoya. I would definitely give it another shot with a different base coat. I use Nubar's and it works pretty well for me :)

I love these swatches, the Reece looks perfect for my tips...and I really like wearing silver on my toes when wearing colorful spring shoes, Laney could well go with almost any shoe!!! Thanks Steph, Happy Spring !

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
