Zoya - Entice Collection

While it still feels like summer down here in Florida, I'm already starting to get the fall itch. I'm beginning to see pumpkin flavored drinks, pumpkin spice candles, and fall fashion in stores around me. Now I yearn for the cooler weather!

What's helping me get pumped for fall are these amazing autumn shades from Zoya.  You may have already seen my swatches of the 2014 fall Ignite collection, but now it's time for the Entice collection! The Entice collection is made up of six gorgeous cremes:
  • Nyssa: Milk Chocolate Brown
  • Claire: Rich Burgundy
  • Margo: Red Plum 
  • Veronica: Brilliant Wine 
  • Ryan: Classic Indigo
  • Genevieve: Leather Grey

Nyssa is a gorgeous chocolate brown. It's not quite as light as a caramel shade, but not really as dark as a milk chocolate shade. It is very neutral, but a bit warm toned. I want to pair it with a nice gold accent glitter!
I used two coats of Nyssa.

Claire is one of my favorites from this collection. It is a "vampy" burgundy shade, and I'd call it a crelly since it appears as a creme, but is also sort of jelly-like. I used three coats to achieve full opacity, but it covered great and didn't get too thick after being built up. 

 Genevieve is another beautiful shade. At first glance, I thought it was just a flat gray shade, but upon closer inspection, it's actually slightly shimmery! I suppose it isn't a very obvious "shimmer," but it definitely has sort of a pearly sheen to it. Genevieve is a very cool-toned gray, and is almost a blue-gray. I tend to like warmer shades for fall, but I still love this one! 
I used two coats of Genevieve.

Ryan is described as an indigo shade, but it's somewhat of a navy to me. It is more unique than most navy blue polishes I have though, so I'll give it that. The above photo is more accurate for the shade, as the bottom photo doesn't want to play nice with the image compression on Google's server! 
Regardless, this is a gorgeous shade, and I really do like it. Two coats covered great with no streaks, and it is very pigmented! You can see a couple spots where I had trouble cleaning it up because of the intense color.

Margo is an interesting shade. This one can appear darker or brighter depending on the light. That sounds like it's obvious, but I mean it can look very different! Sometimes Margo can appear to be a bright purple shade, almost neon in nature, and other times, it appears much darker, but still like a bright plum. Either way, it is a beautiful shade, and I'm quite enjoying it! You can see how it can look darker above, and brighter below.
I used two coats of Margo.

Veronica is my favorite from this collection. It is described as being a "brilliant wine," and I suppose that's an accurate description! It's a wine, almost cranberry shade, and similar to Margo, can look much brighter or darker depending on the light.  Veronica tends to look darker (like above) on my nails, and lighter (like below) in the bottle for me.
I used two coats of Veronica.

In general, this is another collection I'm loving from Zoya! I think I like Veronica, Claire, and Genevieve the most, but they're all really rich shades for fall. For cremes, they all applied easily and left no streaks, and just about all of them covered perfectly in two coats (with the exception of Claire since it's sort of a crelly).

You can purchase polishes from the Entice collection on Zoya.com for $9 each (full size bottles), or $54 for the whole set.
