Hi there, my darlings! So I waited and waited and WAITED for the arrival of Fall in Toronto...but no luck. Fall just did not arrive in Toronto this year. Instead, we went from Summer straight to Winter. Sure, we had a couple of Fall-ish days but as a whole, an entire season...no, my FAVORITE season went completely MIA in 2018. Go figure! But, nevertheless, the Holidays are coming up and you know what's perfect for the Holidays? The Zoya Nail Polish and Treatment Element collection! Although brought out as a Fall collection, I have been rotating these shades for weeks now and fuly plan on rocking a few during the Holiday season. Take a peek and see if you agree with me!

The Element collection consists of 12 gorgeous, moody shades in varying finishes that are quite appropriate for an Element collection.  Across the board, I found the formula of each and every single polish to be an absolute pleasure to work with--I can't say that often with any other brand but Zoya! Unless specifically mentioned, all the swatches below show just 2 easy coats of each shade by itself on the index and ring fingers and with the addition of 1 thin coat of topcoat on the middle and pinkie fingers, for the sake of comparison. There are a couple of polishes that required a couple of extra coats but read on to see why. Now, on to swatches!

Rumor is described as "a full-coverage mauve taupe with a subtle shimmer". This beauty leaned more pinky-lavender on me but such a delicately pretty shade!

Maryann is described as "a full-coverage pink-toned rose with soft glowing shimmer". Such a flattering shade of rose!

Jenna is described as "a full-coverage dusty rose pink cream with blue undertones". This one would be beautiful on my paler-skinned lovelies!

Ruthie is described as "a full-coverage raspberry rose cream". I love this one, especially for professional or daytime events!

Kendra is described as "a beautiful full-coverage marsala cream". One of my faves in this collection, I wore this baby for weeks!

Donnie is described as "a full-coverage purple-toned sangria cream". I was so pleasantly surprised by how vibrant and bright this shade was!

Maeve is described as "a full-coverage concord grape cream". Another gorgeous purple, bring on all the stunning Zoya purples!

Alyssa is described as "a full-coverage red-toned purple cranberry cream". I love a good, sexy red and this one is SO sexy!

Rachael is described as "a full-coverage mulberry berry cream". These darker shades are so perfect for the season!

Leighton is described as "a deeply saturated blackened aubergine cream". Such a rich, deep aubergine that you can barely tell it's a shade of purple! Nevertheless, another instant fave for me!

Gardner is described as "a deep periwinkle with a vibrant magenta shimmer in a dense foil finish". 3 coats here for full coverage, this polish is a little thinner than the other shades in this collection but very buildable as a result!

Devin is described as "a steel blue with hints of multicolored shimmer in a dense foil finish". Quite sheer in formula, you can use this as a topper quite easily or build it up to full-coverage with 4 thin coats as I've done below!

So there you have it, my darlings! The Zoya Element collection is available now on Zoya's website HERE for the price of $10 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle.
