Zoya Fall 2011 Smoke Collection Swatches!

Good Morning!! Hope you all had a great weekend, I did! Today I have for you guys the first half of Zoya's Fall Collection! The first half is called Smoke and it contains 5 cremes and one very subtle shimmer! I know you've probably seen these a million times by now but with the promo Zoya has going on what better time to see them again right?!?


Click the read more button below for full pictures and reviews of each shade.



Anja is a very dark smoky purple as described by Zoya. I think it leans a little more berry than purple, at least at me. I love Fall collections for vampy colors like this! Most of the time Anja did appear black but when you step out into the sun you can definitely see the berryish purple! The formula was great on this one, nearly opaque in 1 coat, I used 2 for the photos below just to even everything out!




Codie is a very dark blackened brown. It does look black in my photos and pretty much every other photo I've seen of it but it is a very dark brown! Easier to see that in person! Great formula on Codie, muck like Anja above it was nearly opaque in 1 coat. I used 2 coats of Codie for the photos below.



Cynthia is a dark inky blue with a very subtle shimmer. I actually didn't realize there was a shimmer in this until I went out into the sun to that the photos of it. I love this one so much. Cynthia is definitely my favorite of the Smoke half of Zoya Fall. I don't think I have anything even similar to this in my stash. It's a different shade of blue than I normally go for and the shimmer really sets it apart! Great formula again, I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Dree is a dusty olive green. yum! You guys know I love this one, I'm so glad Zoya gave us another green, they do greens so well! I feel like this might be a bit lighter than the greens OPI and China Glaze gave us for fall but I haven't had time to compare them yet! Great formula, I used 2 coats for full opacity!



Jana is a light taupey mauve color...with a description like that I'm always meh but I will always love this color. I don't care how many variations there are, I need them all. It's got to be one of the most flatter colors I own and I tend to wear it even "season". I put season in quotes because we don't really have them in So Cal haha. The formula was again great, 2 coats for flawless coverage!



Petra is a dark smoky purple/blue/grey kind of color. It reminds me a bit of Kelly from last Fall but i'm not sure how similar they are. This is one of those shades like Jana where I will never get tired of it



These are available now on Zoya's website for $8 each

  2. I like Dree! Unfortunately I don't own a single Zoya polish because I can't find an etailer that ships to Germany. Thanks for sharing the swatches!

  3. I love these smokey cremes! I've gotten/am getting all of them except Jana, which I'm worried is too light for my skin tone.

  4. So depressing colors :( I love dark colors but none of those ones. A good black is better.

  9. yes, we have been seeing swatches of these for a bit now,but I don't get tired of looking at them,mainly because I am still on the fence about which ones I want. I am hesitant about Codie,Cynthia,and Anja.Did you find they stained much upon removal?

  11. I like Anja and Cynthia from this set. I still prefer the other set I think but that's cause they're shimmer/sparkly. They all look good on you girl.

    That sucks! At least the good thing with Zoya is you don't have to worry about things going out of stock and never coming back!

  23. Hey, hon. I also love and bought Cynthia. I applied it for the first time today and got major bubbles. I didn't think I applied the first coat too thick, but even after the first one, it started forming bubbles. Did you have any issues?

    I didn't have that problem, it might be the base coat you are using. Zoya seems to not work well with some bands (like Seche Vite).
