Lael is hot, hot, HOT!! I adore this shade, probably one of my most fav Zoya's (Yasmeen ranking numero uno!).
This is the perfect transitional shade during cooler months (fall, or end of winter before spring calls for brighter shades). It's vampy without being *too* vampy. It's a deep rich saturated plum in a cream finish. Lighter than OPI's LPAD. What I love about this is the richness of the shade, and that it doesn't go "blackened" after a couple of coats. this looks fantastic, gives great shine, exceptional pigmentation and applies smoothly. Definitely a great shade that I can see just about anyone being able to pull off. It's classic and trendy, yet the shade is timeless. Another Zoya hit in my stash!

This was my first Zoya purchase (I got a few colors) and I tried this out first. I love it! Goes on nicely, dried to a gorgeous plummy color. I put on the sparkle topcoat over it however, which I wish I hadn't done - I think this color would love much nicer with a clear topcoat. Next time I'll skip the sparkle... but it's a great color. It looks a little dark when not in direct light, but the plum really pops out in sunlight. I uploaded a few pictures to my profile.

I finally found the perfect vampy purple for me! I'm cool toned and pale and this never looks black on me! It is a wonderful eggplant creme. I only needed two coats. I used Zoya's base coat and Poshe as a top coat. I'm on day two with no tipwear and no chips. I love Zoya polish!

I had been wanting this for a long time by the time I got it. Somehow it wasn't what I thought. It also was very thick. I believe it has a red undertone, which perhaps isn't suiting me.

First off, I like Zoya. I think they have some great colors, but I find it really hard to pay their prices when they aren't on sale (especially when I can get OPI for cheaper and it's more expensive retail) and the staying power is not so great unless you buy their top/base coat.
Aside from that, this is a nice color. It's a very true eggplant purple. I like a creme, but this is a vampy creme, so sometimes it can show every possible mistake you make. But I like it, just not crazy about it. I will keep it for now, because I don't have anything like it, but I have a feeling this may go up for swap. Again, I like it, just not crazy for it.

I got this in a swap and will definitely keep it since it isn't like any other polish I have, including OPI's LPAM which is deeper and inkier than this. In most light, this looks like a true eggplant. In the bottle, it looks brighter and plummier and in some instances can look more plum. It's completely matte, which is a feature I'm not crazy about, but it's still a nice formula and gives great opaque application with two coats. This also doesn't have the blackened effect which so many OPI shades have.
For whatever reason, this shade looks much darker and like that true eggplant I mentioned than it does on rocketqueen. In her pictures, there's a fair amount of red in the shade, but I don't get that when I wear it...

Zoya Lael is a vampy plummy shade, cream without shimmer. Great coverage after two coats (as pictured) and a lovely shade! I wouldn't repurchase since non-metallic shades aren't my cup of tea, but this still is a fabulous polish. Looks purple in daylight while under indoor light more wine red.
