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.

  2. Ahh I'm so happy for you!! I've been looking for swatches of this collection everywhere. Thank you! I think I'll be getting Rue...the first two shades look a little too yellow for me.
