A Zoya A Day - Diana and Dominique

Hey Friends

Today on the blog we meet Diana and Dominique

Coats - 1/2

Collection - Classic
Colour - Red
Topcoat - No

Diana by Zoya can be best described as a deep, bold, rich classic red creme with a subtle touch of soft burgundy

Available on USA website - No
Available on the UK website - No

Does it stamp - Not really
Name - Dominique
Year - 2005

Number - ZP0309
Coats - 1
Finish - Cream
Collection - Provocateur
Colour - Red
Topcoat - No

Dominique is a discontinued polish but can be described as a warm medium red creme, with a warm orange undertone.

Diana is gorgeous, I'm not sure I see a burgundy hint on the nail, a little in the bottle, good formula, no running or pooling and I would say opaque in two coats even though I did one, you can see my nail line and while she stamps its not great.

Dominique is a warm orange undertoned brick red, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one sweet coat and stamps very well and you can see that orange/brown undertone in the stamp. I had to write on my label as it had faded badly, didnt go a very good job, might try printing out a label instead.

Yesterday I did a mani for the When Colours Collide Collab which was for bright orange and grey. I did two coats of Fancy Gloss Neon Orange, stamped with Zoya August and used Apiplia Super Placa H :) everyone did a great job, so many brilliant manicures :)

Shiloh by Zoya can be best described as a bright maraschino cherry red with delicate red-toned shimmer.

Both of these are stunning, Sarah is the vampy sister to Carrie Ann from yesterday, gorgeous formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, she stamps well too.

Shiloh has that orangey brown undertone, maraschino cherry is right, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, Shiloh doesnt stamp quite as well, she's more a shimmer metallic than a liquid metal if that makes sense.
