Zoya Sarah vs Lisa

In the just released 2010 Winter collection "Flame", two different reds were released, both with pretty interesting descriptions.  Sarah was called "possibly the prettiest sparkling red metallic ever!" (exclamation point included) whereas Lisa was called a "celebration red sparkling metallic."  Okay, what?  On the actual press release, Lisa was shown as much more pink than Sarah, but as you can see above in the sun picture, the colors don't look that different.  I used a base of Zoya Anchor, 1 coat of both colors, and a top of Zoya Armor.  Lisa looked a tad thin on the nail this time because of Sarah but it was fully opaque for me.

Even here in on the nail, there's not THAT much difference other than Sarah is slightly darker than Lisa.  But wait, there's more!

As always, the truth is in the shade.  You can totally see these are different - with Sarah being at least 4 shades darker (not a scientific measurement).  Also Lisa looks more like a liquid metal to me, where Sarah is much more of a blackened red (in comparison to Lisa only).

Here you can really tell that these are two different colors and depending on the look you're going for, you'd want to choose carefully.  Are they both totally worth it in the collection?  For me, the answer is always yes but I also have a collection problem and normally want complete collections.  While I would have liked to see a green in Flame (for winter), Zoya has put out a lot of greens lately, and they have all been super pretty, so it's a win/win situation in my book.

Zoya [official website] can be purchased on their website for $7/bottle.
