Zoya Satin Topcoat

Today I have a quick post for you using the Zoya Satin Topcoat. This isn't available on the Zoya website yet, I received it as a gift with purchase at Ulta last week. (I actually went twice to take advantage of the promo, so be on the look out for a giveaway coming soon!) The promotion Ulta had running at the time was that if you purchased two Zoya polishes, you received this set of a Satin Topcoat and a Satin Cream lipstick free. How could I resist? :0)




To show you the topcoat, I painted four different Zoya shades on my nails and I will show you pictures before and after applying the top coat. The polishes I used are: index-Kimber, middle-Marley, ring-Thandie, and pinky-Willa (my favorite one coat black polish).

I really like how the Satin Topcoat makes the polishes look. When you apply the topcoat the polishes take on a finish that is in between a glossy and a matte finish. Something a bit unusual, and I like that now I can use any polish I have and replicate this finish. Not surprisingly, it makes the polishes look similar to the Naturel Satin collection released earlier this year. I was really impressed with that collection and this fits in well with it.

As for the lipstick, I chose not to swatch it because I'm not much of a lipstick wearer so I'll probably gift this to someone. It does look like a great shade though. If this lipstick is something you are interested in, Zoya has a promo running right now where this lipstick is the free gift. They just started selling the Naturel Satin polishes (you can check out my swatches of them here) in minis and if you purchase three of them and use code MINI3, this lipstick will be added to your cart for free. (The code also makes the shipping free!) I think it's a great way to try out the Satin polishes and lipstick. You can check out all of the details of the promo here

I'd love to hear what you think of this topcoat. Is is something you'd use? How about the promo? Something you think you'd take advantage of? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Almost give polish a wax look finish. Nice all the same as I'm really liking these different finishes at the mo. I have a matte polish that give a leather look finish to polish :)

  2. The topcoat looks nice but I agree it looks more waxy. I don't think I would purchase it. Your pics are fab tho!

  10. I didn't know that Zoya made lipsticks. It's really pretty. I love their satin finish polishes, so something tells me I'd love this topcoat.

  14. I like how it's in between matte and shiny. And it's a great way to topcoat the Satin finish polishes without changing the way they look.

  15. This looks like a great top coat! I top coats that can change up the look of your polish! It's an easy way to get different looks out of the same polish!

  16. I didn't pick up the satin topcoat. I have a few matte topcoat and it feels so close in finish that it feels unneeded for my collection.

    1. It is similar bug I like how it isn't totally flat. Plus it lasts longer than the matte polishes and topcoats I have. :0)

  17. Oooh! I have been waiting to see a review on this. :) Makes me want to pick up the Satin topcoat. I also still need to get their matte topcoat, I've heard good things about it.
