Zoya Professional Lacquer in Leslie

Zoya — Leslie (Professional Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Zoya 2015 Spring, Delight

Leslie (ZP776) is described by Zoya as a “soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash”. This is pretty much on the nose. I’ll just add that Leslie is packed with silvery lavender shimmer, and though it has a frosted look, it isn’t at all streaky.

It reminds me of this color scheme—they could release an inverted version of Leslie (blue with frosted lavender flash) and call it Elsa:

Leslie isn’t the sort of thing I’d normally wear—princesses were really not my thing growing up—but it’s hard to deny that lavender plus an aquamarine flash looks pretty darn cool! I secretly love it.

Application is lovely, as is typical for Zoya, and the polish is fully opaque in two coats. Pigmentation is excellent. The polish dries to a nice, glossy shine.

  1. I’m a sucker for the micro shimmers in an interesting colour. In fact, I’m rocking a mani that’s a blue shimmer over a boring beige base!!! I should take a pic and post it on instagram for you!

  2. This is wicked pretty. I enjoyed Zoya’s spring collection and all of the duo-chrome, but only bought the yellow shade! If I see any of these at Ulta on sale with the changing seasons I will be sure to add more to my collection!

      • OMG! I want Rayne too!!!! It was always sold out in my local ulta when the collection first hit the shelves! I actually forgot about it until I read your comment and need to check around for it next time I’m in!!!!! And Daisy is the one I have!!! I’ve used it, but have yet to put it on my blog! Too much nail polish and so little time! 😂
