Zoya Ornate Collection for Holiday 2012

Hi folks! Today I have for you three beauties from the Zoya Ornate Holiday 2012 collection. I am a huge fan of scattered holo, so naturally I couldn't pass up this collection. What amazes me about this collection is that the holo polishes are suspended in a tinted, not opaque, base!! Zoya is well-known for the sheers they released earlier this year and they seemed to have kicked it up a notch just in time for the holidays. To avoid repetition, I'm going to say outright that the formula of all three polishes was spectacular, drying to a glossy finish and coming off without a hassle. Bear in mind that being a red, Blaze can leave stubborn stains on your cuticles if you get any polish on them.

Aurora is a purple tinted base with chunky holo glitter. Because of the size of the glitter particles, they do come off as just silver chunks indoors, but they sparkle and shine in direct sunlight. I used 1 coat of Aurora over Zoya Tru. Please excuse me for putting up so many pictures but I NEED you guys to see the awesomeness.

Blaze is a red tinted base with holo glitter. I can't believe I almost didn't get this! This is one polish that looks ordinary in the bottle but is va-va-voom on the nails. The sheer base gives this polish a lot of depth and the holo particles shine mostly pink and purple. Although Blaze is not even remotely close to Hare's Dog Day Dream, it has filled my Hare lemming because they both have similar color palettes. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Merry Berry.

Storm is a black tinted base with chunky holo glitter. I love this polish but I wish the glitter wasn't completely flat and non-holo in all lighting other than blazing sunlight. The holo is not as strong as it is in the other two. I suppose I must continue on my quest for a black fine glitter polish! I used 2 coats over a translucent coat of Wet'n'Wild Black Creme.
