Zoya’s Tao

No, you aren't hallucinating. Yes, this is slightly similar to Zoya's Freja. The finish is different (I'm not entirely sure -=how=- to classify the finishes for most of the polishes in Zoya's Mirrors collection. They're not frost…they're not metallic…they're…distressed metallic?!??), the base color is just a little lighter. But it is highly similar. If you tried Freja but didn't like it because it was just a hair too dark, Tao might strike you the same way.

That said, the polish applies very smoothly and lasts well. Under the lighting that I used, Tao and Marina look fairly similar. They are close - about as close as Zoya's Kelly and Caitlin - but Marina has stronger blue tones and Tao is far more neutral.
