Zoya Sharon

The last polish from the Peter Som trio that was produced by Zoya is Sharon-- and this is the only polish from the two Fashion Week trios that didn't make it into Zoya's Lovely Collection. Which is a shame, because it's a lovely orange color! Sharon is described as a  "full coverage creamsicle orange. A subtle and soft interpitation of bold color." First of all... can orange ever actually be 'subtle'? Soft, yes, definitely-- but subtle?! Maybe, but I don't think Sharon is a subtle polish, for all that it may be soft. It does have a creamy appearance, but I don't think I would call it subtle. To me, this polish definitely makes a statement, but it's too loud and has a nice softness to it. In fact, I was a little surprised when I first applied it, given Zoya's description.

The formula on Sharon was probably the best of the three from this trio, but was still a bit on the streaky side. However, I feel like this was a bit thinner than the formula on Neely and so a bit easier to control. I used three coats here to get a smooth, streak-free finish, but I feel like you might be able to get away with two coats with careful application. It photographed much brighter than it actually is in person.

With the flash under my house lights, Sharon looks positively neon. It's not!

Sharon is a lovely orange creme, so hopefully Zoya will find a way to bring it back in another one of their collections in the future for those who missed it!
