Zoya Entice Collection Swatch and Review

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have the second part of Zoya's fall offerings, the Entice Collection. This collection consists of 6 warm and cozy cremes that scream autumn (and of course, having Zoya's fantastic creme formula). These polishes are the perfect compliment to the shimmery Ignite Collection which I have already reviewed here.  

Veronica is described as a brilliant wine full-coverage creme. This is a very classic color which I can see being adored by women of all ages. It so chic and I love it!


Ryan is described as a classic indigo full-coverage creme. This color is very inky blue and almost looks black in some lights. I actually don't think (despite having a million blue cremes) that I have one quite this dark. I can see myself using this a lot as a base for glitters because it would really make them pop.


Claire is described as a rich burgundy, full-coverage creme. I would say that this is more of a red-based brown. It makes me think of cherry chocolate (if that makes any sense at all..it's just what I think of when I look at it!) I definitely don't have anything like this in my collection and I really like it.


Margo is described as a red plum full-coverage creme. Oh this is one of my favorites for sure. It is a very wearable shade that I can even see myself convincing my mom to wear, but it's a bit funky at the same time. It's so rich and decadent!


Genevive is described as a leather grey full-coverage creme. This one had just a little hint of silver shimmer running throughout that gave it a bit of a different look than the other cremes. I would say this had a slightly thinner formula than the others, but it was still perfect in 2 coats.


Nyssa is described as a milk chocolate brown full-coverage creme. I can't believe that I like this one so much! I expected to hate it because I thought it would look awful on my skintone but it DOESN'T! Milk chocolate is exactly how I would describe this one, so Zoya has the description dead on. Another good addition to my collection because I have nothing else like it (I have VERY few brown cremes). This one seemed to dry down darker on the nail than how it looks in the bottle.


The formulas of these cremes were pretty consistent across the board. They were all nice and opaque and had a good spreading consistency which didn't run or cause pooling. I used 2 coats for all of my swatches, but I used thin coats. If you used thicker coats, some of these could be careful one-coaters. I will caution you, be careful with application as these colors (especially the darker, more saturated ones like Veronica, Ryan, and Claire) can be a beast to do clean-up with because they tend to stain the cuticles a bit (it also helps to have your cuticles well moisturized ahead of time). Luckily, as I already said, the formulas are such that if you are careful, that won't be a problem.

Overall, Zoya's Entice Collection, like the Ignite Collection, delivers fantastic fall colors that will be perfect to wear when the weather starts cooling off. These polishes are now available for pre-order on Zoya's website (they retail for $9 each), and they will soon be available where Zoya is sold in your area (I always find them at Ulta locally).
