Zoya Hypnotic Trio, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

As promised, January is slow, haha. I had polishes swatched and just couldn't get the ooomph to post. Well I have the second holiday trio from Zoya to show you today! Unlike the Y2K trio, this is a dark and moody trio perfect for the gray skies we so often see in January. So let’s take a look at these pretty polishes.

Rosalind: 2 coats plus top coat. "A darkened sugar-plum purple, a duo chrome with a hint of blueberry that becomes more apparent when in broad daylight." This is a nice purple but the duochrome was much more visible in person than in photos. It's nothing new but not sure I have seen this color from Zoya, so it's new for them!

Clarice: 2 coats plus top coat. "A dark emerald green metallic, she has the appeal of a lush, dark forest full of mystery, and looks striking against any skin tone." This could honestly be one coat. In fact, one dip of nail polish covered all four nails almost completely. I just did two for photos. Because this is so pigmented, it did leave some stains on my cuticles once I removed it. But you can see that it does go away easily with a lint free wipe since my next swatch didn’t show too much damage.


Metora: 2 coats plus top coat. "A deep boysenberry jam color with a shimmering metallic finish, reminiscent of a full-bodied red wine." This has a similar formula to Clarice since it is basically opaque in one coat. I kept this one on for a few days so I swatched it last. I loved the vampy aspect of it.

  1. These are great winter shades. They look amazing on you. I am over winter and can't wait for spring shades. Thanks for sharing. 💜

    1. Funny enough, I am now wearing pale pink! So I have shifted away from winter and onto Valentine's Day pinks! But I was wearing a dark polish right before this (which I will post in a few days!)

  2. All of them are really pretty, my favourite is Rosalind :-)

    1. I love that one too. The shift to purple is so pretty.
