|My Picks L-R: Hope, Robyn and Evangeline|
|Minis L-R:Anais, Severine, and Charlott(e)|
I'll show you my picks first. The first polish I chose was Hope. Hope is described by Zoya as "a flashy medium violet-purple with frosty blue, red and silver colored shimmer." I really like this polish. This is two coats of Hope. None of my swatches today have top coat. Hope is available here.
My next choice is Robyn. Robyn is described by Zoya as "the perfect turquoise creme. This is a polish I have heard so much about. Now that I have it, all of the hype is justified. If you like blue polish at all, you need this polish. It is gorgeous. This is one coat of Robyn. Robyn is available here.
The last of the polishes that I chose is Evangeline. Evangeline is described by Zoya as "a deep rose-pink shimmer with slight gold duochrome and flecks of gold microglitter." Another beautiful polish! This is two coats of Evangeline. Evangeline is available here.
Now for the Mystery Mini Trio. Everyone that ordered from this promotion received the same three mini polishes. They are not for sale on the Zoya website and were originally curated for the Peter Som Autumn Winter NYFW 2014 show.
The first polish in this trio is Anais. Anais is a black polish with a dark silver shimmer running through it. It is opaque in three coats. I feel like this formula was more jelly like than creme like, but I don't know if I would say it would be a jelly that you could use for a jelly sandwich or anything like that. I liked it opaque on it's own but I also think it would be a good base for glitter topper polishes.
The second polish I received is Charlott(e). I type it that way because the sticker on the bottom of my bottle is without the last e, but I have seen it on other blogs or sites with the last e and I don't know for sure which spelling is correct. Charlott(e) is a creamy neutral color. I don't have anything in my collection this color, so I'm glad to have this polish. This is two coats.
The last mini polish I received is Severine. I read on this blog that Severine is a bottle of the same shimmer that is in Anais. Being that this is a metallic polish, I did have a little bit of an issue with visible brush strokes. That is fairly common among most metallic polishes. This is two coats of Severine.
These three polishes were made to work well with each other, and I think they do. You could definitely do a manicure with all three of these or choose two and it would work just as well. I think they really compliment each other. Let me know in the comments below what you think of the mini colors and the colors I chose!
