Zoya Sarah

Zoya Sarah is one of 2 reds from the Flame 2010 Winter collection, listed as "possibly the prettiest sparkling red metallic ever!" Seriously, that's straight from the press release.  Unlike China Glaze Ruby Pumps or any of the other red glitters, this has such a fine microglitter in it, and is actually listed as a metallic.  Now, I asked the head fairy over at Zoya about the name on the bottle, which clearly says Sara, without the H.  She replied that it was just a printing mistake and that all future bottles would include the H.  (This was also later mentioned on their website for the release.)  Sarah or Sara, this is a really pretty red.

I used a base of Zoya Anchor, only 1 fully opaque coat of Sarah, and a top of Zoya Armor.  I'm still not in love with Zoya Armor - it dries too slowly for me, but because of the actual formula, Zoya polishes do not play well with Seche.

In the sun you can really see how pigmented this color is.  There are going to be a LOT of reds this winter season, but this gives a bit of a metallic look to the classic red creme. 

In the shade, you can see how it looks similar to a red glitter but unlike a glitter, this is much easier to remove - no scrubbing necessary.

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

  1. You should try the Barielle Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender top coat with Zoya. It's not as quick dry as Vite, but it doesn't have whatever the chemical is that doesn't play well with Zoya. And it's still faster than non quick dry top coats. Check my Cola wear test post if you haven't, but it worked really well for me. And I picked it up at TJ Maxx for like $4 one day. So you might want to check there if you have one near by.

  2. I'm nowhere near a TJ Maxx, but I'll look online! Thanks Chele! ^_^
