Zoya THRIVE is here!

It certainly has been a busy month of Zoya swatching with two new collections, like today’s “Thrive” and the one I posted a few days ago, 12-piece Bridal Bliss. Spring “springs” early in Zoya town 😉 and Thrive is a perfect transition from late winter to springtime. Let’s see what starts shipping this Thursday, 2/15/18!

New Spring collection by Zoya for 2018, THRIVE! From left to right: Darby, Trudith, Brandi, Monroe, Leisel and Haruko. These came in the same kind of gift box as the recent Bridal Bliss and Party Girls!
From the new Zoya Thrive collection, Darby is a smokey periwinkle with a delicate shimmery tone of lilac in the background.
Trudith from the new spring collection by Zoya, Thrive, is a smokey lilac creme, two coats and very opaque!
Brandi from the Zoya Thrive collection is a glossy medium rose creme. Nice and pigmented, 2 coats here.
Of course I loved all the formulas in this new spring collection, Thrive by Zoya, but I have a deep abiding love for this one, Monroe! It’s what I would categorize as a watermelon crelly, and it goes on like butter. Two coats, LOVE!
I just HAD to pair these two beauties from the new Zoya Thrive collection. The bottle on the left is Leisel, a sheer shimmery topper (or 3-4 coats alone), and bottle on the right is Haruko, a springy lilac creme. Here I am wearing Leisel over Haruko on my pointer and middle finger. What a gorgeous pair!

Zoya Bridal Bliss is in the house!

Introducing…Zoya Bridal Bliss! From “something blue” to the most delicate shimmer, there is truly a color for every blushing bride. And what a delicate and feminine way to glide into spring! Let’s take a look.

I love this delicate collection of pales and pastels, nudes, sheers and even the shimmers. Bridal Bliss is gorgeous!

Bridal Bliss features one brand new shade – Zoya in Brighton – a full coverage, diamond holographic soft nude. Swipe to see Brighton.

Abby by Zoya can be best described as a cool, highly opaque light lavender cream. 2 coats.
McKenna can be best described as a refined pearl in a soft almond. Two coats here.
Color Family – Nude Finish – Pearl Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque ) Tone – Warm
Here is Leia, a shear beauty, 3 coats alone and one coat over Laurel. Leia – ZP835: Sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold.
Snow White by Zoya can be best described as a pure white creme that’s as clean and bright as freshly-fallen snow. The perfect French manicure tip shade. Two coats here!
Rue by Zoya can be best described as full-coverage, boudoir blush cream. Pair with any of the other Naturel Collection shades for a chic tone-on-tone look! Perfect in two coats here, with Brighton as the accent nail. Simple and elegant.
Loretta by Zoya can be best described as a light beige with a sheer creme finish. A universally flattering nude with a unique translucent finish. I look at this as a sheer, nail brightening and color enhancing sheer. I did this in two coats, with three coats, it still won’t be too thick because the formula is great, but would perform more like Bela, another sheer in this collection.
Erika by Zoya can be best described as a soft, girly pale baby pink with lots of fine gold shimmer. A work appropriate soft pink with a shimmery twist. I used three coats, but you could get by with two. I love the golden shimmer in this one.
Chantal by Zoya can be best described as a delicious full-coverage, French vanilla cream. Pair with any of the other Naturel Collection shades for a chic tone-on-tone look! Here she is in two easy coats.
Brighton by Zoya can best be described as a full coverage, diamond holographic soft nude. Here is this beauty in two smooth coats.
Blu by Zoya can be best described as a full-coverage, soft and delicate pale baby blue with a glossy creme finish. A dreamy, calming blue that’s both fun and flattering on the nails. I have been a huge fan of Blu since it came out. It’s still perfect! 2 coats.
Bela by Zoya can be best described as a ballet slipper pink in a sheer, milky creme finish. Wear alone for a soft, semi-sheer feminine look or use as the base for a French manicure. Beautiful Bella in 3 coats! This will make a perfect nail bed foundation for a French nail look.
Avril by Zoya can be best described as a soft neutral pink with light brown undertones in a milky creme base.The perfect universally flattering nude. 2 easy coats! So in love with this shade!

Conclusion: I LOVE this collection! Not a lot of new stuff but either way, a brilliant assembly of blissful bridal shades! All perfect formulas.

A cat eye gel polish, a 3-shade thermal gel polish (wow!), a gorgeous duotone metallic stamping polish and a and a magnetic cat eye pigment powder that can be used as a chameleon pigment rubbed over no wipe top gel coat, or mix into (the easiest way) no wipe gel top coat, then applied over black. Let’s see what I did with them.
