Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection

Zoya recently released the Naturel Deux (2) Collection, which contains six beautiful creme polishes in shades of rich browns, rose and plum.

·Spencer- full coverage, rich camel creme.  (5/5 opacity) Warm toned.

·Chanelle- full coverage, toasted almond creme. (5/5 opacity) Cool toned.

·Emilia- full coverage, dark chocolate creme. (5/5 opacity) Cool toned.

·Madeline- full coverage, muted rose cream. (5/5 opacity) Cool toned.

·Aubrey- full coverage, medium mauve creme. (5/5 opacity) Cool toned.

·Marnie- full coverage, deep warm plum. (5/5 opacity) Neutral toned.

I found the opacity of all of these to be full coverage in two thin costs. The formula was perfection. It wasn't too thick or thin and glided on to my nails with ease. Each color dried down to a smooth, even, glossy finish. I had slight streaking with Spencer, but it was easy to even out with and additional thin coast. I didn't find any of the other shades to be streaky.

I did find that Marnie and Emilia appeared slightly darker on my nails than they did in the bottle.

I think this collection is beautiful and perfect for fall. Anyone who loves soft neutrals or needs classy, toned down shades for a work environment, would love these. There is a nice range of lighter shades and deeper shades, making it easy for any skin tone to find a color that is perfect for them.

Overall I give the Naturel Deux (2) a huge thumbs up. Also, I am really enjoying the "transitional" summer to fall idea of this collection. It's nice to have some colors that ease into the deeper tones of fall, while still being soft enough for the summer.

Each of these polishes can be purchased for $9 each (click on the individual polish names above to go to that page) or as the collection of all 6 polishes for $54 (HERE).

Zoya's Summer 2014 Bubbly Collection

* The items in this post were sent to me for consideration and review. All opinions expressed are my own and are never paid for.*

Up today is the Zoya Summer 2014 Bubbly Collection!

A beautiful set of 6 polishes made from Zoya's exclusive liquid metal, holographic jelly formula.

·Stassi - brilliant cool toned citron green with gold metallic glaze and a holographic finish. (Listed as 3/5 on the opacity scale)

·Muse - a cool toned blue raspberry holographic fizz with subtle veins of gold. (3/5)

·Harper - a cool toned cotton candy pink with spun gold shimmer. (3/5)

·Binx - a cool toned spicy orchid purple dappled with gold metallic shimmer and holographic sparkle. (3/5)

·Jesy - a warm toned fiery coral orange metallic with holographic sparkle. (3/5)

·Alma - a warm toned golden peach metallic with holographic sparkle. (3/5)

The formula of these was nice. Slightly on the thin side, but easy to work with. They applied very smooth and fluid. The opacity of these was accurately listed. With two thin coats I could still see my nail line through them. After a third thin coat they were completely opaque with the exception of Jesy and Alma, which needed four thin coats before I could no longer see my nail line.

I tested out Muse for wear time and was able to get 6 days before I had noticeable tip wear, and get my first chip on day 7. I would definitely give a thumbs up for wear time! 

My favorites of the group are Muse and Jesy. Which ones are your favorites?

Each polish in this collection can be purchased from www.zoya.com for $9 each or as a set of all 6 for $54.
