Zoya Ornate Collection for Holiday 2012 | Swatches + Review

I pre-ordered Zoya's Holiday/Winter Collection "Ornate" a few weeks ago and I've finally got my hands on it! The full collection consists of six shimmery holographic glitters but I only bought four of them because the green and gold didn't really stand out to me. The shades are really pretty and were definitely worth the wait! 

A purple/plum holographic, microdiamond glitter

A red/plum holographic, microdiamond glitter

A black holographic, microdiamond glitter

A silver/grey holographic, microdiamond glitter

Glow: I am completely in love with these polishes! Out of the three StormAurora, and Blaze are my favorites. This is my first experience with holographic shimmers like these that are so glittery, they are smooth and easy to remove unlike actual glitters. The formula of each shimmer is very creamy and I only needed 2 coats to get them completely opaque.

Glare: The only con for me is Electra; it's described as a holographic shade but it has larger pieces and is more like confetti. I wish I had paid attention to swatches of it before buying because I really could've done without it :-/ It just doesn't do it for me. It might look better paired with another color I might test that out later. 

Would I Recommend It? I'd definitely recommend Storm, Aurora, and Blaze. They're simply gorgeous and must-haves in my opinion. Especially if you're a fan of shimmers. Zoya got it right with these! 

Where To Buy: The entire Ornate Collection is currently available and the full set retails for $48 and separately they are $8 each. To purchase or to learn more visit http://zoya.com.
