Throwback Thursday: Zoya Elke

I have one of the first Zoyas I ever owned to share with you today. This was actually one of my favorite polishes when I first got in back in 2010. The sad thing with this polish is it has been discontinued. I can see why, while 5+ years ago this was a stunner, in 2015 it's not the most striking of nail polishes in comparison to what is available now.  I still love it though, and will I break it out at least once a year for old times' sake.

Elke is a coral-pinky red with a golden shimmer.

Collection: Chit Chat Collection 2008

Color: This is a hard color to describe. This reads red on the nail and in the bottle, but it has this little hint of coral-pink to it that makes it unique. What I love about this polish most is the golden shimmer. Zoya has always been the queen of golden shimmer. 

Formula: This was an easy to use and smooth 2 coat formula. 

Price: This is discontinued from Zoya, but you can still find some bottles on eBay in the $7-$8 range.

Overall: This polish will never leave my collection. No, it cannot compare to the metallic flakies, glitter bombs, multi-chormes, holos, and jellies of today, but it's a beautiful polish. The color is rich, bright, and the shimmer is stunning. Elke will always be an all-time favorite of mine. 

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday! 


  1. That is still a gorgeous polish and I love that shimmer.

  2. I've not seen this color before. It's pretty and perfect for the seasonal transition/GIMME SPRING mood lately, lol.
