Zoya Smoke Swatches & Review






Putty/greyish taupe with plummy undertones

This is such a great, simple color! It applied flawlessly, and is a perfect toned-down, yet still trés chic color for fall!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA 

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque






Raisin-toned grey. 

Another amazing neutral for fall. I love the undertones in this polish - and can totally see myself wearing the crap outta this polish. Appears darker on the nail than in the bottle in real life. 

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque







Bittersweet dark, rich chocolate with a tinge of a murky green undertone

Seriously? Look at that shine. This color is stunning. Perfect for a night out, or for a little bit of edge without going all out with black. 

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque






Rich port wine color/Black cherry

This full-bodied wine color screams fall. Dark, sexy and vampy, this polish is an amazing excuse to do a manicure when the leaves turn! My bottle seemed a little thicker than the others in the collection, probably a fluke though.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque





Blackened teal with a hint of shimmer

Another fabulous twist on black in this smoke collection. I love that this color skirts the line of being black, but still stays true to it's teal-y goodness. You can even catch a touch of microscopic shimmer if you look hard enough!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA

Finish: While technically a creme, it contains a hint of shimmer. 2 coats





Olive drab with yellow undertones

Ooooh, hey there pretty lady! I'm such a sucker for murky olives, and this gorgeous polish is no different. It should be no surprise that this is my favorite of the Smoke collection. These colors look horrible on me - damn my red undertones, but I just can't stay away!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: TBA

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque



What it really comes down to...

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of using a Zoya polish knows that they rarely disappoint, and this half of the Smoke & Mirrors collection is no exception. Every color is a trendy, simple, chic, and amazing addition to your fall nail wardrobe. The standouts for me are definitely Dree and Petra, with Codie making it a tight race. 

Zoya nail polish can be found at the links above, www.zoya.com, or at ULTA stores and salons for $8 a bottle.
