Zoya Fall 2013 Cashmeres

Not too long ago I posted about one of the beautiful fall collections that Zoya has out - the 2013 Satins. Today I have the 2013 Cashmeres, which are the cremes! I'm a big fan of cremes, so I was really excited for this collection.
Products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

The Satins are really beautiful on their own, but I'm really feeling the fall time vibe from these Cashmeres.  The rich browns and subdued shades are perfect. From left to right:
  • Sailor - "dark navy cream"
  • Hunter - "dark sea cream"
  • Louise - "chocolate brown cream"
  • Flynn - "camel brown nude cream"
  • Pepper - "brick red cream"
  • Livingston - "fall red cream"
I also applied Maria Luisa from the Satins collection over each color as an accent nail. While it isn't part of this collection, I love how it looks over the cremes.

Sailor is a beautiful deep blue. I really love the dark, subdued shades for fall. This one is pretty pigmented and covered very well in one coat, but I applied two just to make sure it covered completely. I really love how Maria Lusia contrasts with the blue! Sailor applied great and had no streaks.



Louise is a deep chocolate brown. I actually really like browns and neutral shades, so I enjoy this color. "Chocolate" is really the best word to describe it - it looks like molten chocolate! The shade isn't too deep to the point where it looks black and it isn't too light either. I love this paired with the gold Maria Luisa topcoat.  I applied two coats of Louise.

Pepper is a deep brick red shade. I wasn't sure how much I would like this color at first, but it turned out better than I expected! In some light, it looks pretty red. At other times, it actually looks pretty brown. I am a fan of burgundy colors though, so I quite like it! It was also a nice change since while I like red, I don't typically wear red polishes. I applied two coats of Pepper and one coat of Seche Vite.

Livingston seems a little bright for collection.It's a much brighter shade of red than Pepper, but it also appears different depending on the lighting. It looks very vibrant in my lightbox and in these photos, but it's slightly deeper. Although, it does look a little brighter on the nail than in the bottle since it's almost a jelly. Livingston is pretty opaque and covers well, but it's also a little sheer and jelly-like. I used two coats and got great coverage.

Flynn is another shade that is perfect for fall. It's a camel/nude sort of color, though it also looks brown or beige. It looks a bit more sandy yellow in these photos, but in person it seems to lean more light brown to me. Either way, I really enjoy the color, and it's a nice change from the usual nude shades I use. I applied two coats of Flynn with one coat of Seche Vite.

Hunter is a perfect name for this polish. It truly is a hunter green shade, and I absolutely love it. I'm usually very drawn to blues and greens, and yet I don't think I have another polish quite this shade in my collection! It's pretty unique. While it's a deep shade, it's not as opaque as expected. Though, it still covered well in two coats. The first was a little sheer and streaky, but the second evened it out and made it perfect. I love how Maria Luisa looks over this color too.

In general, I love this collection! The colors are great for fall, and most of them are very wearable - they're deep, rich colors without being too dark or vampy. Livingston, Pepper, and Hunter will be perfect for the winter holiday season as well! 

As for the formula, these polishes are great. They're cremes that even out very easily, even without a topcoat. I got absolutely no streaks, and they covered very well in just two coats. If you love any of these colors, I would recommend grabbing them! 

You can purchase the fall 2013 Cashmeres from Each full size bottle is $8.
