Zoya Naturel Collection
Hi guys! This past month I got some fabulous news... I was accepted to the blogger network of one of my favorite brands, Zoya! Here is the first collection I got to swatch for them, the Naturel collection.
Before I start I'll just let you know that these all had the same formula, opaque in two coats and perfectly self leveling. No issues at all with application.
Zoya Chantal - Described by Zoya as "French Vanilla Cream". This is a lovely light beige with a yellow undertone. These type of yellow undertones tend to clash with the pink in my skin, but this would be lovely for a more warm skin tone. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Zoya Taylor - Described by Zoya as "Light Toffee Cream". This one is the same tone as Chantal, just a few shades darker. Still not the best color for my very pink skin, but would work well for warm toned skin. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Zoya Rue - Described by Zoya as "Boudoir Blush Cream". Ah, this one is much better with my skin! Its a light tan with pink undertones. This was one of my favorites. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Zoya Brigitte - Described by Zoya as "Bombshell Mauve Cream". This might be the first mauve polish that I haven't hated instantly guys! I normally loathe mauve, but this was really lovely on. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Zoya Odette - Described by Zoya as "Sultry Maroon Cream". I'm not too sure I would classify this as maroon though. More like a dusty orchid color I think. In real life this is a touch more dusty than it appears in the photo. Another favorite! Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Zoya Normandi - Described by Zoya as "Sable Mauve Cream". I definitely see more sable than mauve. Its a really nice greige color. When I saw this in the bottle I thought, no way that's going to look good on me. When I got it on it was my surprise favorite! I love this one! Something about it makes me feel so cozy and warm, like a big, soft sweater. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Overall I think this collection is a lovely palette cleanser for post-holiday manis. My favorites were Rue, Odette, and Normandi. What are yours?
Zoya polishes are available from Zoya.com for $9 each or $54 for the set of 6.
