When I first heard about Zoya's "metallic spring 2010" collection, Reverie, I was intrigued but it wasn't until I started to see swatches that I started jumping for joy. Although Zoya calls these "metallics", I'm calling them all duochromes (!).
Official Press Release from Zoya

Zoya 2008 Awards - voted the longest lasting polish by Women's Health Magazine (beauty awards, US), named longest lasting nail polish by Lucky Magazine (green guide, US), named best nail polish by 9 AM with David & Kim (morning show beauty awards, AU) and voted best nail polish varnish by Lifescape Beauty Awards (UK).
I bought the whole collection online but haven't had a chance to take pretty pictures yet because THERE'S NO SUN. What on earth is going on with this weather?! Grr. I decide to make a blog, and I have no sun. For weeks...
Well I did take some pictures myself but it's in no way showing off the amazing duochromes that each color shows.
Happi is a Barbie bubblegum pink with yellow orange shimmer. Laney is a silver with a tiny bit of greenish purple shimmer. Gwin is an orange with the same same yellow orange shimmer that Happi has. Reece is a purple mauve with the same yellow orange shimmer as Gwin and Happi. SURPRISE - Lana is a reddish orange with again, the same yellow orange as Reece, Gwin, and Happi. Finally, Adina is a purple with the same green shimmer from Laney, but with loads more of it. Adina looks like it could be a dupe of Ki, but I've seen a comparison before and they aren't dupes but I may have to blog about it later for you.
