Soaper1 sent over these picture of Zoya Ivanka, and they made me want to put it on right now. Click here for arm swatches of Flash and Sparkle. Click here to see my inferior pics of Ivanka. Click here to see Soaper’s luscious swatches of Charla.
Ivanka is part of Zoya’s summer Sparkle Collection: six super glittery polishes. We’re starting to see several companies offer this finish — such as OPI’s Summer Flutter Collection. It’s a glitter finish that leans metallic without being frosty. In a nutshell, these polishes are absolutely gorgeous.
Ivanka is a stunning green with gold microglitter and a slight blue duochrome. Unlike Charla, I didn’t experience any Seche Vite shrinkage issues with Ivanka. I also only used 3 coats of this one; I used 4 coats of Charla. As usual, I topped it with 1 coat of Seche Vite. This applied and wore very well.
The other Sparkle polishes are: Charla (blue), Mimi (purple), Alegra (magenta), Nidhi (red), and Gilda (deep pink). Zoya polishes are free of toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and DBP (dibutyl phthalate); they are also vegan. The polishes retail for $7 and are available at zoya.com or select salons and retailers. Please check their site for locations.
