Guess what I found while going through some old folders on my computer? Zoya Suri from the NYFW 2012 Collection!
Although I forgot to review it on here earlier, what I do remember is really loving this manicure.
You really can’t go wrong with a saturated purple.
This is the case for me, and that’s probably why when I first got into nail polish more seriously, purple was the shade I turned to. It was like an old friend who never lets you down.
Do you feel the same way about a certain colour? And what general hue made you take polish more seriously?

Zoya Suri Review
This is a robust purple…the kind that reminds me of a magician. Purples like this make me really happy because, yes, there’s something magical about them. They’re strong, and they really define your nails.
Plus, since I think of a magician when I see this shade, it brings to mind happy childhood memories of me trying to learn new magic tricks. Haha, even though I was only ever able to successfully pull off a few (card tricks!), I had a lot of fun trying.
I’m glad that I wasn’t able to recreate all the magic tricks I loved. In a way, not being able to do it made the trick actually seem more like real magic…and I admire people who can do things waaay better than I can. It’s inspiring.
Back to the polish!
It has a metallic finish, but it’s not a full-on chrome. I could see fine shimmer up close, but from farther away, the metallic finish shines through. It’s amazing how this polish emphasizes the shape of your nails.
Even though this has a metallic-like finish, it isn’t laden with brush strokes. I saw one or two, but nothing major.
Application & Formula
Somebody hand Zoya Suri the crown because the formula and application were easy and breezy! I remember how quickly this glided on, and it was very pigmented. I used two coats out of habit, and I didn’t feel the need to add any additional coats.
Due to the brilliant colour and the painting ease, I know I’ll wear this shade again and again. It’s fuss-free…even if it IS part of the Diva Collection (the subsection of the NYFW 2012 Collection)!
Final Verdict: 9/10
If you’re just starting your collection, and you’re looking for a punchy purple to add, I recommend this. Zoya’s formula is fuss-free, and the colour pay-off is amazing!
Now that the Zoya NYFW 2012 Collection has been out for a long time, have you tried any yet? What’s the best Zoya shade you ever wore?
