Zoya Sansa & Yuna

*Purchased by Me*

Hey there!  Today I have 2 polishes from the Fall 2014 Ignite Collection from Zoya - Yuna and Sansa.  The Ignite collection is the glass-flecked half of Zoya's Fall collection.

First up is Sansa.  Sansa is a dark eggplant with a golden shimmer.  This polish is gorgeous.  It is just beautiful.  And the coverage is fantastic.  This is just one coat, and there was no dragging.  I topped it with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Next I have Yuna.  Yuna is described as a "warm gray with copper and gold liquid metal."  This polish is a chameleon!  In some lights, it leans blue; in others, it leans green.  I did 2 coats on these photos.  I had a bit of drag on the first coat.  I topped it with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

I really liked both of these polishes.  Typically I love the Fall collections, but I was a little underwhelmed this year, and just got these 2.  After trying these 2, I have a feeling I may pick up a few more.

The only issue that I have with these polishes has nothing to do with the colors or the formulas... it's the names.  To me, they should be switched.  When Zoya first teased the bottom of the bottle of Sansa, I immediately thought "Game of Thrones," and pictured a gorgeous gray hue for House Stark.  And when I finally saw Sansa, I was reminded of a video game character named, you guessed it, Yuna from Final Fantasy X.  The purple reminded me of the skirt that her character wore.

The Zoya Ignite Collection can be purchased at select stores, or at zoya,com.  The polishes retail for $9 each.
