Zoya Petals collection…A fresh bouquet of swatches!

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!

Available in top salons, spas and on zoya.com. These retails for $10ea or $60 for the whole set.

Kerfuffle by wHet, & the Incognito System

Kerfuffle by wHet, & the Incognito System

I’m a huge fan of periwinkle lacquers. It’s like blue and lavender had a wrestling match and they drew a tie! It’s becoming on any complexion and it’s great for spring. wHet sent me some gorgeous shades to review and I couldn’t wait to get this one started. And since I’m testing the Incognito Nail Lacquer 7-day system, I chose their “Kerfuffle”, this luscious, highly pigmented periwinkle. Just last week I posted a review of my first bottle of wHet nail lacquer in Megalomaniac. I was so impressed so I couldn’t wait to review more!

Kerfuffle, (ker-FUF-el), a disorderly outburst or tumult. ;-)

I am on day two of the 7-day system, details below. I painted on one layer of the clear combo bottom/top coat. It’s a clear, glossy and thin sealer,mid you will. I will mention that the Kerfuffle is very pigmented and although one cost should do, I used two. And it’s super glossy, just like Megalomaniac. Love that! Then I followed with a top coat of Incognito. As of today, after doing dishes and general wear (I’m test on my dominant right hand and I use my left for swatching polishes) and there are no chips or tip wear. Check back here on this post for an update on Day Seven for results.

By day 7, I had very little tip wear, no chips and the glossiness never failed! I highly recommend this system!

UPDATE! Day 4 of the 7-Day No Chip Incognito System. Following the system suggestions, I’ve had no chipping whatsoever. Only very slight tip wear. Probably due to removing polish from my other hand…the one I swatch and review polishes on. It’s very difficult to avoid remover from getting on your working hand! But I can still tell the system is working great! This will come in so handy when we take our beach vacation and I don’t want to hassle with changing polish as often as I do at home. I’ll report back here on Day 7!

In the coming week, I’ll be reviewing more wHetness! 😉 as they say in the definition, “…to stimulate curiosity, appetite and desire.” wHet lacquers are 3-free, vegan formulas, made in the USA, 7-day chip resistant and based in LOS Angeles, California.

Kerfuffle! Every label has the definition of the lacquer's name.

“wHet’s Incognito Nail Lacquer System is The best of Both Worlds!

wHet’s Incognito system uses technology that gives you long lasting, high gloss wear without any harmful chemicals or exposure to UV/LED light. Let’s not forget to mention it removes as easily as regular nail polish, making it possible for the color indecisive to change up their look with no hassle.

The Incognito system requires two simple steps for a 7-day chip resistant finish that mimics the high shine look of a gel polish. The dual functioning clear base/top coat, appropriately named Incognito, is applied to clean nails followed by the wHet lacquer color of your choice. The creamy consistency of the lacquer means it only requires one coat. Finish with a coat of Incognito over the lacquer and viola; you’ve locked in your polish for a 7-day chip free wear! Easy enough right?
For added shine and protection throughout the week, apply Incognito to your nails the next day and again 3-4 days later. When you’re ready to try your next fashion forward color simply remove the lacquer as you would regular nail polish. wHet CEO and Founder said he created the system to “combine the best of both worlds – a gel like finish without the harmful chemicals or hassle of removing it”.

wHet polishes come in 15 ml/.5 fl oz bottles, they’re 3-free, chip-resistant, vegan, limited edition color collections and never tested on animals. You can see all the California-based company’s colors at http://www.whetnails.com.
