Beauty Review: Zoya Nail Polish Sparkle Collection

Who needs fireworks this weekend when you've got some sparkle on your nails! Kick it up a notch this summer with Zoya's Sparkle collection. If you've never been a fan of glitter, Sparkle may just change your mind!

Zoya Charla: I was immediately intrigued by this "tropical blue sparkling metallic", but I wasn't so sure I wanted that much glitter on my fingers. So, I tested it out on my toes and I love! I just love the way it glimmers and shimmers in the light. The look is less glitter and more shimmer.

Zoya Mimi: This fab sparkling metallic royal purple is one shade I was brave enough to wear on my nails because of it's deep hue. I tend to choose this shade during the fall/winter season so I was surprised to see it as summer shade. The sparkling effect makes it wearable for the summer months.

Zoya Ivanka: I know green is a big trend right now but I just can't seem to get on board. This is described as "mermaid green sparkling metallic" but it just reminds me of grass - with sparkle. It really is pretty in the bottle, but I just don't love it on me.

Zoya Gilda: One of my fave shades from Sparkle! This "fashion pink sparkling metallic" is just a bunch of girly fun. If you love pinks you'll love this one!

Zoya Alegra: I thought this fuchsia pink would be shocking but it's actually sophisticated and would look pretty chic with a LBD. Besides the high shimmer, it's another classic shade that would look gorgeous on all skin tones. 

Zoya Nidhi: The collection wouldn't be complete without a red, a rich sparkling metallic red. Wear the cream version for day and heat it up at night with this shimmering shade!

I've never been a fan of glitter but as I mentioned before it's definitely more shimmer and less glitter. I was expecting to find hard glittery flecks in it but instead the texture is mico-fine sparkles which I love. The effect is just so pretty and sparkly! The only negative? When you remove the polish the sparkles get all over your skin but washes off with water. Otherwise, if you consider nail polish an accessory then you'll definitely want the Sparkle collection!

What do you think of Zoya Sparkle? Love it? Hate it? Want it?

Zoya Individual Nail Polish retails for $7 USD and Zoya Sparkle Sampler retails for $36 USD.

I don't really like any of these. Not really a fan of glitter

I never thought I'd endorse glitter, but after trying Nicole by OPI's Gossip Girl collection (it's out in August), I changed my mind. The glittery is really pretty with the navy blues... but I think this Zoya blue is a tad too light for it to work.
Not a fan of the greens or pinks (too juvenile) but I LOVE the red glitter! Would be so pretty for Christmas!

Glittery polishes are a hit or miss but I think people who love to have fun with colour and are edgy will love this collection. I wouldn't consider greens or pinks "juvenile" - sounds too negative to me. Greens are definitely for a younger crowd but I consider pinks to be fresh, girly and feminine. Nothing juvenile about that! :)
