Creme Review

Zoya Entice & Ignite Swatch and Review

Monday, October 13, 2014nail a college drop out

Press Sample It's Monday again and I finally have a post ready for you guys! In between going back to school and working full time, I haven't had a ton of time to talk polish/nail art with you guys but I'm def trying.

Anyway today's swatch and review about for Zoya Entice (créme) & Ignite (shimmer) Collections is probably the largest swatch and review I've ever done in one post here on Nail A College Drop Out so let's get to it!

India | Claire | Teigen | Veronica | Remy | Ryan
Margo | Sansa | Genevieve | Yuna | Nyssa | Autumn

Zoya does the whole releasing a 6-piece créme and a 6-piece shimmer collection so well, I felt it was a good move to swatch each shade from Entice & Ignite with its color counterpart (i.e. shimmer with matching créme). My thumb, index, and middle fingers are shades from Ignite; while my ring and pinky fingers are shades from Entice

India & Claire
India is a deep burgundy with gold metallic shimmer that reaches full opacity in two coats
Claire is a very deep brick red créme that becomes fully opaque in two smooth & easy coats. The cherry on top you wonder? When I removed of these shades I didn't get any stains on my nail beds or cuticles. That's definitely a win for any red polish!

Teigen & Veronica
Teigen is a describe by Zoya as a  violet plum with copper shimmer, but to me, it's a deep raspberry shade with copper shimmer. Either way it goes, Teigen is fully opaque in 2 smooth coats.
Veronica is a berry tone that I wasn't too thrilled with color-wise, but it does have an impressive formula. Being a two coat, full coverage créme isn't anything to scoff at honey.

Remy & Ryan
Remy. Guuurrl let me tell you about Remy. Its a 1 coater! Yes a one coater! You need this in your collection. I can promise you that. In real life one coat is perfect but under a camera lens and bright lights you can see slight VNL (visible nail line), so for blogging purposes, swatched above is two coats.
Ryan is an indigo créme that, unlike its shimmer counterpart, becomes opaque in two coats. I think this would be great for some nautical themed nail art.

Sansa & Margo
Before I even get into the details on these lacquers, I have to say that they are my fav combination. I love me some purple nail polish!
Sansa an eggplant with gold shimmer. Much like the rest of the E&I lacquers, it is opaque in in two coats.
Margo looks kind of meh on its on but I def pops next to Sansa! This is the only shade that required three coats.

Yuna & Genevieve
Yuna is gray with copper and gold shimmer. Reaches full opacity in two coats.
Genevieve is an elephant gray créme with a streaky first coat, but evens out just fine after the second.

Autumn & Nyssa
Autumn is a brassy orange with gold shimmer. It becomes fully opaque in two coats.
Nyssa is described as a milk chocolate brown that becomes fully opaque in two coats.

Overall the Entice & Ignite collections are full coverage, and with the exception of Margo & Remy, all the shades obtain  full coverage in two smooth coats.
If you have to choose only two lacquers from the ones posted today--you know, if you were trapped in some sad parallel universe that only allows you to choose two bottles of nail polish out of a twelve piece set--you should definitely make it Remy and Sansa.

Before I end this post, I do want to say the Ignite Collection reminds me of a fall alternative to the Irresistible Collection for Summer 2013. Don't believe me? Peep Lakeisha's swatches over on her blog

Remy, Sansa, and every other lacquer shown above retails for $9 each on
