Zoya Entice Collection

Recently released for Fall 2014

Introducing the NEW Zoya Entice Collection

An up close & personal look at each of the 6 new fall shades released by Zoya!

Without a doubt I absolutely love this collection!  What’s not to love!  It’s so hard to find complaints with a collection when the formula for each shade is flawless!  I really couldn’t find fault with any of the colors!  I do think there’s a shade for almost everyone in this collection.  There’s a nice range between shades of plum, burgundy, brown, indigo blue and steel gray.

In addition to being a great collection of creamy, opaque, solid fall shades, Zoya also released a counter part to the Entice collection called Ignite!  6 shimmery coordinating shades for fall.  Also, keeping in mind for all you working women out there.  By combining colors from the two collections, make for fantastic simple and understated nail art!

I actually created a simple stripe nail design combining Claire & India.  Here’s a link to the post. 

Each polish in the Entice & Ignite Collections Retail for $9/ bottle and can be purchased online through www.zoya.com or at any Ulta Beauty Store!  I’ve also enclosed direct shopping links to each of the colors below.

So.. lets get started with the review!

Margo – Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Margo Entice Collection

Margo by Zoya can be best described as a modern red plum in a flawless, full-coverage cream formula.

If you like brighter shades of purple during fall then Margo fits the bill.  This shade wouldn’t be my most favorite out of the collection, just ’cause of it’s brightness.  The thought of a crayola plum color came to mind when I wore this shade.
For those of you younger girls… you might want to try it out!  It’s a bright, vibrant shade of plum.  Wears great and applies evenly and you’ll definitely get a full coverage finish with this one!

Color Family – Wine, Plum
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool

Coordinating color from the Ignite Collection – Sansa
Buy Margo & Sansa


Veronica – Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Veronica-The-Trendy-Nail
Veronica by Zoya
can be best described as a full-coverage brilliant red wine.

A bit deeper than Margo, and not to sound redundant but Veronica definitely has the look of a vibrant red wine.  The deeper the shades the more I like the color, so Veronica is a little bit more my speed.  Still leaning on the brighter side but not over kill.  A nice creamy opaque shade that applies smooth and evenly.

I even created a cool nail art design using Veronica… check it out.

Color Family – Wine, Burgundy
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool

Veronica’s counter part from the Ignite Collection is Teigen.
Buy Veronica & Teigen


Claire – Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Claire Entice Collection
Claire by Zoya can be best described as a warm, rich burgundy with a flawless, full-coverage cream finish.

Claire would have to be my favorite out of the plum/reds from this collection.  Still a red in my book Claire starts to lean towards the browner family.  Warmer shades definitely look better on me, so I really like Claire.  A pretty fall shade that applies evenly and opaque and would be great for all you working women out there!  I had a lot of fun with this color and also created some cool nail art too.  Here’s a link – Claire Nail Art

Color Family – Brown, Burgundy
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Warm

Coordinating color from the Ignite Collection: India
Buy Claire & India


Nyssa – Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Nyssa Entice Collection
Nyssa by Zoya
can be best described as a milk chocolate brown in the flawless, full-coverage cream formula.

Nyssa’s a nice shade for those of you who like a medium shade of brown.  A bit on the cooler side though.  But when I saw Nyssa I immediately wanted to try a matte top coat and absolutely loved it!  Take a look at the shiny vs. matte pics and let me know… which do you like better?

Color Family – Brown
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool

Coordinating color from the Ignite Collection: Autumn
Buy Nyssa & Autumn

Nyssa with Matte About You by Essie Top Coat.



Ryan- Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Ryan  Entice Collection
Ryan by Zoya can be best described as a classic indigo in a flawless cream formula. (Originally released during NYFW for Timo Weiland’s AW14 Collection)

Ryan is probably one of my favorite blue nail polish shades and one of my favorite shades from this collection!  Reason being is that it almost has a black appearance.  It’s deep indigo shade is very flattering and not over the top.  A plus is that you can get away with 1 coat too!  A great base for some brighter nail art designs… or even some cool negative space nail art designs.  (Negative space designs: Masking off parts of your natural unpolished nail, leaving your bare nail showing peaking through)

Color Family – Bue
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool

Coordinating color from the Ignite Collection: Remy
Buy Ryan & Remy


Genevieve – Zoya Entice Collection

Zoya Genevieve Entice Collection
Genevieve by Zoya can be best described as a cool leather grey in the flawless full-coverage cream formula.

Genevieve would probably be my #2 favorite color from the Entice Collection.  Loving the steel gray look and although it has a cooler appearance it looked great on my nails.  A really cool solid gray for those of you gray lovers out there.  Also another shade great to try with some negative space designs and even with a matte top coat.

Color Family – Grey
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool

Coordinating color from the Ignite Collection: Yuna
Buy Genevieve & Yuna


So there you have it!  All 6 shades from Zoya’s new Entice Collection.  Here’s how I would rank the colors starting with my favorite shade at #1 to least favorite at #6.


  1. Ryan – Deep Indigo Blue
  2. Genevieve – Deep Gray
  3. Claire – Burgundy Brown
  4. Veronica – Burgundy Wine
  5. Nyssa – Medium Tan Brown
  6. Margo – Plum Wine
