A Zoya A Day - Yardley

Hi Friends

Today on the blog I'm sharing my swatch and review of the lovely Yardley.

Available on the website - Yes
Brush used - Original
Does it stamp - Not really
Name - Yardley
Year - 2023
Number - ZP1184
Coats - 1
Finish - Metallic
Collection - Daydreaming
Colour - Peach/Gold
Topcoat - No

Yardley is described as a peachy champagne gold, infused with micro-shimmer.

What a stunning colour Yardley is, a peachy golden orange, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, I did do a stamping test but Yardley didnt stamp well.
This does dry down with some brush strokes because of that metallic finish, to avoid that you can sponge on a coat.


  1. Oh, this is practically a foil! (Or, what I call foil anyway (Hazel, Rikki and Rica are some of my colours that I think of as foils)) I expected this collection to be more sparkly/fleck-y, with "chunkier" glitter. (That is one thing that annoys me about Zoya; their US website is not very well organised! Not everything with sparkle is metallic 🙄 But they have gotten better with their colours, though I don't love "Metal" as a colour family). Yardley's very pretty!! "Peach gold" is a perfect description!

    1. Ah Zoya and their weird descriptions lol I always wait and look at live swatches, the amount of things theyve called things glitter that are no is unreal lol I mean they described these as micro glitter for goodness sake and they are not glitter at all.

    2. Yeah, it's almost as if someone with no idea just says, "Yeah, this looks sparkly, we'll call it glitter"! However, the words Zoya uses are pretty accurate—Yardley /is/ a "Peachy champagne gold". I also always look at swatches, except I prefer to read posts than watch videos. Zoya used to automatically embed Instagram swatches on their website of the appropriate colours, which was really helpful, but they don't seem to be doing that with the newer releases :(

    3. It could also be due to the fact that the owners of Zoya are not native English speakers, it could also explain the sometimes interesting mis-spellings we get.

    4. Oh, I didn't think of that! Good point.
