The Zoya polish I have to share with you today I'm really not sure about. I had this polish a few years ago, and I swapped it away. I don't remember why I swapped it, but I ended up missing it. During a recent Zoya sale, I repurchased it, but it's not how I remembered it at all. I honestly think they changed this polish!
This is my swatch of my older bottle from 2010. Please excuse the horrible swatch, this was when I just started blogging.
Color: This is not the same Meadow from a few years ago. Zoya must of altered the color. What I liked and missed about the old meadow was that is was definitely a neutral toned medium pink with a soft golden-peach shimmer. The new Meadow is straight up peach with an intense frosty peach/gold shimmer. This went from being a very wearable neutral color to straight up grandma color.
Formula: The formula application wise was fine, but the shimmer in it now is very frosty, so it's brushstrokes galore.
Price: This is $9 on the Zoya website.
Overall: This is a massive WTF? polish moment for me. I don't have confirmation from Zoya this was reformulated or changed, but it must have been. If you Google this color and look at images pre-2012 you'll see I'm right. The swatches look like my older swatch color. If you have the old Meadow keep it and cherish it. Don't bother with this new fugly Meadow.
