Zoya Ziv

Hi, you guys! Today I'm continuing with Zoya's Ornate Collection and I've got one of my favorites from the collection to share with you. Ziv is a gold foil with densely packed gold and silver shimmers and larger golden flakes.







I would say in terms of "gold-ness", this color lands somewhere around 14 karat gold. It's a rich and classy shade that isn't too yellow to make wearing it hard. This is quite close in color to a number of other gold foil polishes, but what makes Ziv really stand out is the larger golden flakes scattered within it. They add extra depth and interest that really elevates this color. The formula is great. Each coat came out thin and even without any dragging, pooling, or lumping. Wait time between coats is short, and two coats is all I needed for opaque coverage.

You can find Ziv on Zoya.com for $8 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  2. This is like the gold version of Zoya Jules (one of my faves of all times), and it looks great!

  3. This is beautiful, Yun! I love this shade of gold, not too brassy but still nicely golden. And you're right, the extra flakes give it a really nice texture!

  4. Hmmm.. This one was one of the two I was going to skip but I might reconsider it... Besides the color, is it similar to OPI GoldenEye! TIA!! :)

  10. This one also looks gorgeous on you, which I find to be very astonishing! I was sure it will make you so pale, but it's not!
    I am really trying to decide it I want this one or not. I really love it but... but but but... it's kinda - do I need another gold? Probably not. But I have a feeling I will be sorry later...
    why does life have to be so harsh.....

    1. It definitely doesn't make me look pale at all. I think it's a pretty good balanced gold. And those gold flakes in there are so special.
      Haha it's so hard having to decide between so many awesome polishes. :P
