Zoya Whispers Collection Review

Today I have the brand new transitional shades, Whispers collection. Like Zoya says, “Experience color serenity with this muted and tranquil palette of transitional nail neutrals.” These six shades are soft and cozy as a cashmere sweater. I’m still feeling the moodier deep shades I lean toward for wintertime but these do make me look forward to spring. Let’s take a look!

I really liked all of these but I’ll start with my favorite (on me), Misty!

• Misty - ZP827: An easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with
just a touch of green to make it daring. I don't personally see that "touch of green" but hey, this 2-coat shade works for me. My favorite of the lot!

Ireland is a relaxing shade of green. Ooh, this will be great for March!

• Ireland - ZP826: A uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle
yet still interesting. This green is well-balanced between blue & yellow so it’s
flattering on all skin tones. This went on slightly more opaque that Cala, April and Eastyn. 2 coats to a perfect soft sage green.

• Ireland – ZP826: A uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle
yet still interesting. This green is well balanced between blue & yellow so it’s
flattering on all skin tones. This went on slightly more opaque that Cala, April and Eastyn. 2 coats to a perfect soft sage green.

Eastyn is a warm and toasty grayed out mauve.

• Eastyn - ZP825: A subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than mauve and
gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable. Very reminiscent of the first Zoya Naturel nudes. But it isn't a dupe in case you wondered. Here is two coats, same formula as Cala and April. Makes you think it's going to be too sheer on the first coat then turns opaque on the second!

Cala is a peachy nude.

• Cala - ZP823: A soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones. I used two coats here. First coat went on pretty sheer but was fully opaque on the second coat. I was unsure it was going to go with my pale winter skin tone but I think it's a good peachy nude.

Lake is a grayish blue, pale and cool.

• Lake - ZP828: A softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a
hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity. Two coats, same formula in my opinion as Misty and Ireland. In case you think it's a dupe for some other Zoya pale blues, it's not. It has a spit of gray setting it apart.

April is a baby-soft peachy pink.

• April - ZP824: A light, rosy toned neutral that is a modern take on blush. 2 smooth coats, exact formula as Cala. I love this shade!

Conclusion: I really like this collection. I was sort of looking forward to the next collection being vibrant, glitzy or sparkly. But maybe these transitional shades are just what the doctor ordered! All the formulas were great, three started out sheer but ended up fine on the second coat.

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!

Zoya Naturel Satins Transitional Long-Wearing Satin Finish Nudes for 2015. From top center then clockwise: Rowan, Brittany, Leah, Ana, Sage, Tove.

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.

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 🙂

*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.

They can be ordered now from Zoya.com for $9ea or for the whole collection for $54.
