Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

New Zoya Petals collection is just my cup of tea. Delicate floral shades with hints of dew that shine like the morning sun. I received my swatch box while on vacation in Florida. In fact just a couple days after we left home. So you can imagine how anxious I was to open that box! But then again, being at our vacation home in Florida is pretty sweet too! Let’s take a look at these long-awaited beauties.

Zoya Petals is a delicate collection for spring 2016. Some of these seemed more pale in this photo than what you see in my swatches (those are more accurate). From top center and clockwise: Laurel, Leia, Tulip, Azalea, Aster, Zahara.

Let’s start with Laurel. So stunning and delicate at the same time.

Another favorite, Laurel in three coats.   Laurel - ZP840: Warm pastel pink with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal 
soft finish.

Leia is one of those shade shifting polishes that shine on their own (with multiple coats) or create cool illusions over other shades.

Here is Leia, a sheer beauty, 3 coats alone and one coat over Laurel. Leia - ZP835: Sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold.

Tulip, one of my favorite flowers. What a perfect name for this one!

Tulip in three coats. So delicate and surprising! Tulip - ZP839: Pure pastel salmon cream with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic 
a petal soft finish.

So hard to pick a favorite, but this one, Azalea, ranks high in my book.

Azalea is a MUST HAVE pink! Here she is in two coats. Azalea - ZP837: Classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash.

Aster is a breathtaking periwinkle sparkler!

Aster in 2 coats. What a gorgeous lilac leaning periwinkle. Aster - ZP836: Fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia to create a dewy finish, 
mimicking the look of spring flowers in the morning.

Zahara is now one of my favorite orange tones. And I have several.

Zahara here in three coats. Her sheer coral beauty is worth the extra coats. Zahara - ZP838: Brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect.

Conclusion: I love the shades and finishes in all six of this collection. Formulas were perfectly smooth, easy to apply and although half of them required three coats to full opacity for me, subsequent layers were no problem to apply. I would have liked to see at least one less orange/coral tone in the set, even though they were all gorgeous. I’d have liked to see a green, maybe a pale green with glass fleck to set off and cleanse the pallete. But, maybe some pretty greens are on our horizon!
