Zoya Wonderful Part II: Burke, Stacy & Kelly

The rest of the Zoya Wonderful Collection for Fall 2010! I used 2 coats on these as I did on the first three I showed you earlier today, with the exception of Stacy, which was three coats.

Below: Burke is a sienna red creme that is a slightly toned-down classic red shade. We live in an area with a lot of farms out in the country, and for some reason this reminded me of the color of a slightly faded red barn. That's kind of an odd comparison, but that's what I thought of!
Below: Stacy is described by Zoya as a mahogany red cream. I'll take that description and add to it by also calling it a vampy, rich, delicious, ultra-shiny, deep burgundy with purple under tones and a near jelly-like finish. But for the sake of limited space on a press release, I guess you could call it a mahogany red cream!
Below: Kelly is a darker stormy grey creme that has deep lavender and slate blue tones to it. This is an unusual shade of grey, and unusual is a very good thing in this case. You can see the various ribbons of color in the bottle.
The Wonderful Collection has a nice assortment of colors for Fall, and the application on all of these was excellent. I opted to go with three coats on Stacy because I had a bit of streaking that the second coat didn't quite cover. I generally prefer using two coats whenever possible, but the third coat added a much deeper dimension to this particular shade. I don't mind going with an extra coat one bit if it's going to turn out looking that nice!

  1. I definitely see the barn color in Burke. Kelly is soooo pretty!

  2. I don't think I will ever get tired of seeing swatches of Kelly. I really love that polish!

  3. I don't think I can see myself wearing Burke at all. Stacy is pretty,I've always had a thing for burgundy. Kelly is my most favorite of all of the Wonderfuls,although, I wonder if a good dupe for it is Sally Hansen's Gray by Gray.

  4. ooowww Kelly...soon you`ll be mine ;) It`s just waiting till the package arrives, I`m so excited.

  5. Stacy is a color i've been wanting to have for a long time, but have to wait till september to make a big order along with Cosmic fx and the other holidays collections...

  6. I also live in a rural area, and while I never would have made the connection, you're right! Burke is a perfect faded barn red.

  7. All these cremes! I'm not a huge fan of cremes so this means less $ spent. LOL! Glad to see swatches of these. Lets me not second guess myself.

  8. They are all so pretty. I'd rather have the glitter collection. These all look like polishes I already have.

  9. Aurora's Nails~I love all three of these, each for different reasons. Kelly is just lovely, very unique.

    Emily~that one seems to be well liked. What is it about greens (Shawn) and greys? We all love them :)

    Jen~it seems to take on a little different look in every photo I see of it, and it actually wears that way too. Very nice.

    Starlight~not a dupe. Kelly is darker and although I can't describe it, just a different type of grey than SH also. Stacy is so jellyish, I love it!

    Martje~I hate waiting for a polish when I keep seeing pictures of it! But you're right, "soon"!

    Anonymous~we're all going to be broke after those Fall collection hit the market! You'll enjoy Stacy though, I'm sure.

    Zara~I'm glad you understand! I was a little afraid to write that as a comparison, but it was my first thought :)

    kittypolishnbags~I understand where you're coming from. I've not been a big fan of cremes on myself, but the more I use them, the more I like them.

    Lucy~they are similar, at least some are to others I have. You're the glitter queen though, so I can't blame you for thinking that way!
