Collection: Zoya 2015 Summer, Island Fun
Today’s polish is from Zoya’s 2015 Summer collection, Island Fun (the cream finish half of Zoya’s usual dual-releases). I’ve previously reviewed Cecilia from this collection, and have Nana and Serenity yet to come.
Talia (ZP798) is described by Zoya as a “true turquoise” in a cream finish. I personally envision turquoise as a lighter, evenly balanced blue-green:
So, I find Talia a bit bluer, deeper, and slightly more muted than a “true turquoise”. It’s an intense, plumage-evoking turquoise blue cream, and I find it quite stunning in person.
Application is lovely, as is typical for Zoya, and the polish is fully opaque in two coats. Pigmentation is excellent. The formula is thick, like a gel, and is a pleasure to apply. After using the newer paddle-shaped brushes by Dior and Yves Rocher, though, I can’t help but think how much nicer the application would be if Zoya had such a brush shape!
The polish dries to a glossy shine.
Zoya Professional Lacquer retails for US$9 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 15 mL. Zoya nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor, and are made in the USA.
