Zoya Lovely Collection

Swatches & Review

WOOOOO! It's 2013! I hope everyone is having an amazing New Years & had a fun New Years Eve! I kept falling asleep last night, but my boyfriend kept waking me up.. haha.
Anyway, today, I have Zoya's Spring collection for you guys!
Zoya's Spring Lovely collection consists of six pastel spring-like colors. Three of them have a shimmery-metallic finish, while the other three have a creme finish.

The Shimmer-metallic:
Piaf: Shimmery-metallic mustard yellow. It looks kind of gold, but at the same time, it does not seem much "gold". I always wanted a nice yellow nail polish, but yellow nail colors normally clash with my skin-tone. However, Piaf actually looks good on my nails, I definitely like this a lot more than I thought I would. This applied smoothly and I used two coats.
Gie Gie: Shimmery-metallic light powder pink. I normally stay away from pink nail colors (I don't like pink, but I have a lot of pink items), but this was not too bad. I like how the silver shimmer looks on it. It looks very feminine & cutesy for Spring. This applied sheer and I used three coats for the swatches.
Julie: Shimmery-metallic lilac/periwinkle. This like Gie Gie applied sheer. I used three coats for swatches.

The Cremes:
Blu: Pastel blue creme. This kind of reminded me of Kristen, but after applying it, this was definitely not like Kristin. I feel that this is a bit too pale for me, and it is my least favorite in this collection. The first coat for this applied streaky, but it evened out by the second coat. I used two coats for this.
Neely: Pastel spring green creme. I love this!!. I originally thought it was another mint green, but it is not. It leans to a warmer green pastel and is perfect for Spring. It is not too pale, it's perfect! Out of all the colors in this collection, this had the best application. It applied smoothly and I used two coats for the swatches.
Jacqueline: Creamy soft yellow with slight shimmer. The shimmer in this is not noticeable on the nail, but when you look at the bottle in person, you can see streaks of slight shimmer in it. This is more of a nude shade and it looks a lot better on the nails than in the bottle. Honestly, I would not purchase a color like this just by looking at it from the bottle, but on the nail, it looks very nice & does not wash out my skin-tone. I used two coats for the swatch.

Overall, I like the collection. The colors are definitely good picks for the Spring season & I love pastel colors! Spring is my favorite season because my birthday is in Spring! haha. My favorites from this collection has to be Neely, Piaf, and Jacqueline. Piaf is a really unique color that I would not have imagined myself liking, but do like. The downsides to these are that they take a while to dry, and that the shimmery-metallic finish colors, it was a bit hard to remove because the silver shimmer spreads everywhere! Other than that, these colors make me want Spring to come sooner so I can use them!

What do you think about these? Are you going to get some of the nail polishes from this collection?

These are available for purchase on Zoya.com now, and they retail for $8 per 0.5oz bottle.
