Zoya — Rayne (Professional Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Zoya 2014 Fall/Winter (?), Divas

Rayne (ZP772) is described by Zoya as a “dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash”. It’s basically the perfect Cinderella nail color! It’s more turquoise, though, not quite Disney-blue enough, perhaps—but that shimmery, frothy iridescence does it for me.

I am a sucker for fairy tale movies! I even sat through Snow White & the Huntsman and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, neither of which was good but at least they were occasionally campy/entertaining. However, I had to stop Disney’s live-action Cinderella (2015) after 15 minutes, ugh.

Rayne is a little disappointing, formula-wise, for a Zoya. It is semi-sheer and I used three coats in my swatch. It doesn’t really apply evenly enough to use it any sheerer, with fewer coats.

It’s only worth getting if you love the bubbly shade!

  1. Total Cinderella shade can see where you’re coming from, also not a fan of that movie (new Jungle Book though is amazing)! I love this shade – what about with a white as a base, do you think it would be any more opaque or is it still that horrible sheer that needs 3 coats regardless?

    • Haha, no princess shades for you! I did see Maleficent – almost used it in my post but then I remembered that SW&tH was worse 🙂 I didn’t mind Maleficent too much, but it was quite predictable! Also, AJ’s cheekbones terrified me.
