I bought three polishes from Zoya Intimate LE: Dannii, Dove and Jules, while Maestra picked up Gemma.

I was really looking forward to Intimate collection, but in the end it left me cold. I made swatches ages ago, but I was simply not in the mood to write this post. That is why this post consists mostly of swatches and as little text as possible.

Zoya Jules is interesting gold-greenish-beige color with pretty shimmer/glitter but it does not look good on me. I thought I could use this shade when on the run, but it needs 3 coats so drying time is not good and it shrinks if I use Poshe fast drying top coat.

After I applied Dannii I saw why this collection is not hit in my book – almost foil like finish. Violet polish is pretty and so is shimmer/glitter, but I do not like combination of two.

The only creme polish I bought was Dove. I like gray polishes and I liked this one too, but I have few very similar polishes with better formula (no.324 BeYu) so I did not fell in love with Dove.

Removing Dannii and Jules was a little bit more difficult because of the glitter.


Maestra tried out Zoya Gemma.

Gemma has green base with blue shimmer. Shimmer is what makes this polish special … and the one responsible for my lack of love for this polish. Application was not problematic.

  1. Woooow wooow WOOOW, time-out! *vsi trenutno nahajajoči na Parokeets blogu začudeno zrejo v Ulmiel* Intimate je LIMITED EDITION?! :drop: :angry: Jaz hočem tri odtenke iz te kolekcije! Kar je velik problem ob moji strogi prepovedi kupovanja lakov! :bljak: Mislim, da jo bom za tele kar prelomila. Zaljubljena sem v Gemmo in Caitlin (ki je dupe od SpaRitual World of Compassion, ki ga obožujem na fotkah, vendar ne maram SpaRitual čopiča), prav tako mi je všeč Danni, vendar ni ravno “a must”. Morda sem prebolela svoje vijolično obdobje … Zelo lepi swatchi!

    • Bolj prav bi bilo, če bi rekla le kolekcija. Čeprav moram priznati, da ne vidim razlike med njihovo kolekcijo in omejeno kolekcijo (razen za tiste iz ZDA). Ko se zaloge prodajo, je to to. :hmm:
