Evening! Kids go back to school tomorrow and life goes back to semi-normal quiet time. Hoping with the better weather and air quality I can actually get back to walking too! So this week/weekend was nice. Since the baby is still little we laid low and took it easy, which we rarely do so it was cool to just stay home. So tonight I need to squeeze in 2 posts for you and I'm going to start with the remaining half of the Zoya Element Collection. These are the Fall 2018 collection and since Fall is winding down I figured I'd better share them ASAP! You can see the first half of my post HERE. The Elements collection is available for $10 each. Let's check them out!
First off I have to tell you that there are 12 total polishes in this collection. I already reviewed 6 and had these 6 set aside to do later. Well at some point between then and now, Jenna got up and walked off on her own. I can't find her anywhere so if you want to see Rumor HERE's the link to the Zoya site.
Up first I have Jenna, a dusty rose pink with blue undertones. Nice enough color, not really anything to write home about (which has been my biggest issue with this collection, not very exciting). The formula was a tad streaky with the first coat. It evened out well with the second but dried kind of flat. 2 coats plus topcoat.
Ruthie is a lovely raspberry cream shade. I did like this color a lot and the creme formula was good. No issues to bring up. I used 2 coats and topcoat.
Maryann is a shimmery rose shade. It's a nice Fall color but the heavy shimmer did cause it to be just a bit streaky. Otherwise the formula was fine. 2 coats plus topcoat.
Kendra is a creamy berry shade, I like the deepness of the color. Much more pleasing to my eye than the vibrant berry shades. No problems with formula or application. 2 coats plus topcoat.
And finally we have Alyssa. This is probably my favorite of the 5 I have in this post. It's a cranberry creme with purple undertones. It's actually a great red creme for Fall AND Winter! The formula was a bit thinner than all the others but it built up perfectly in 3 thin coats. Finished with topcoat.
