Zoya Giovanna

Happy Thursday! It's the last day of the work week for me. We're taking tomorrow off to make it a four-day holiday weekend, and I'm sooo excited! *does the TGIT dance* But first, I have to make it through today. :D

Let's see... next up in our series on the Zoya Satin Collection is Giovanna. Giovanna is a cool-toned, teal-leaning emerald green with lots of shimmers in a metallic finish.






This is another stunning jewel tone from the fall collection, I must say. The color makes me think of Zoya Holly, though the two are quite different. Holly is the quintessential warm green with lots and lots of golden undertones, while Giovanna is definitely a cool green with lots of blue undertones. Its formula is as good as we've come to expect from Zoya metallics. It goes on smoothly without any applications issues, and two coats is all you need for complete coverage. One thing to note: this polish can stain a bit the skin and cuticles, so be careful with removal.

You can find Giovanna 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 - $9 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  7. Why does this color make me think of Angelina Jolie?! It's a good thing, but I can't figure out why that's my instant connection, lol. Probably because it's so icy and elegant, like a movie star. Definitely a favorite from the collection.

  20. How do you think Giovnna compares to Chinoiserie Fantasy? I'm feeling like they'll be nearly identical? Any chance you have both and can do a side by side?

    1. I think they're the same color. Giovanna is just Chin Fantasy released under a different name for the permanent collection. :)
