New Zoya Naturel Satins 2015 are fabulous transitional nudes

I am beyond pleased to share with you one of the newest additions to the Zoya family of Naturel nudes, the Naturel Satins Transitional collection for 2015. Inside the beautiful frosted bottles with velvety caps, lies the extremely opaque polishes that will take you smoothly from winter into spring. I used two coats of each shade, all very similar in formula with the exception of Ana. She was very slightly more sheer due to her pale pink shade, but smoothed out nicely upon application of the second coat. These polishes dry quickly to a satiny finish, not shiny, not quite matte. Very attractive for the office or when you need to be classy yet in fashion. Although these are a bit on the thick side, they self leveled very nicely. Let’s take a look!

The new Zoya Naturel Satin* formula provides opaque coverage and wears much longer than traditional matte shades. Plus, the forgiving smooth finish hides imperfections!

First up is Leah. I was immediately impressed with how nice this shade complimented my pale winter skin tone. I think this will look great on any skin tone as well.

Leah is described by Zoya as "a lavender tinged taupe cream in the exclusive Satin* finish." I used two coats. Color Family - Nude  Finish - Satin  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Rowan was the surprise shade in the bunch in my view. I was unsure if I’d like a suede taupe on my skin, but it was one of my favorites.

Rowan is described by Zoya as "a suede taupe cream in the exclusive Satin* finish." I used two coats. Color Family - Nude  Finish - Satin  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Sage is one of those earthy soft shades I love.

Tove is the essential grey. Since greys seem to be the fashion statement color this season, I’m glad they included this one in the collection.

Tove is described by Zoya as "a misty slate grey cream in the exclusive Satin* finish." I used two coats. Color Family - Blue Finish - Satin  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

Next we have Brittany. It’s a fabulous rose mauve. Sort of old school, but not old fashioned.

Brittany by Zoya can be best described as "a rose mauve cream in the exclusive Satin* finish." I used two coats. Color Family - Pink  Finish - Satin  Intensity - 5 ( 1 = Sheer - 5 = Opaque )  Tone - Cool

And last we have delicate Ana. My fave pink of the collection.

Overall I am extremely impressed with this collection. Leave it to Zoya to continually think outside the box. The formulas were all buttery smooth, very opaque, quick drying, self leveling and the shades are perfect. I had no trouble at all in application and as always, the brushes are perfection. I highly recommend every one of these! Come back a little later…as I bring you the Zoya Delight Spring collection for 2015 馃檪

*The Satin formula is a hybrid between matte and glossy polishes and is not intended to be worn with a top coat. For best results: Prep nail with Zoya Remove Plus Nail Polish Remover, apply base coat and finish with 2 thin coats of any Satin polish.

An Ode to Odette

An Ode to Odette

I never thought I’d like these neutrals with my current complexion鈥inter blah. When I finally got over to my local Ulta store I found Zoya’s Naturel Collection in force. Luckily they had a “color spoon” set there with the whole collection painted on plastic nails. That way shoppers can hold them to their fingers to see if they like them. Admitedly, I knew the first two pale shades, Chantal and Taylor, were going to be a no-go for me. Not until at least I have a tan! It just made me look, sort of dead! LOL I am interested in Rue and Brigitte however and plan to pick them up at some point. The darkest sister, Normani? I just don’t see that one on me at all. Not even with a tan. So for starters, Odette won me over.

I’ve been neglecting buying plain Jane creams for some time but I’m branching out. I am smitten by glitters, shimmers, glass flecks, holos, duochromes, multichromes. Well you get the idea. I’m easily hypnotized by all that sparkly! But there are times a girl just wants something soft and smooth and delicate on the eyes. Zoya’s Naturel Collection fills that bill and all within the Pantone 2014 arena. I think beautiful was a perfect one to get me back on the neutral cream track.

She's a beauty!

She’s a beauty!

Odette had me a tad worried on the first coat. I wasn’t expecting, or I’m not used to thinner formulas, but she evened out nicely. As is typical for Zoya brushes, they are amazing and splay perfectly for even distribution. For best effect and full coverage you’ll want two coats. Zoya claims color intensity is a 5 on a scale of 1-5 for opacity. I’m confused about the claim of being in the color family of Mauve, because in the description Zoya notes this shade to be a “sultry orchid maroon”. I’m going to go with that! 馃槈 I just have to say, I love it and oh by the way, she dries glossy enough to almost see yourself. An extra feather in her cap. So this is my ode to Odette. You pulled me in, you won my heart, and that my friend is just the start.
