So I gave you a sneak peak the other day, but I’m finally ready to share Zoya’s newest collection – Zoya Lovely - for Spring 2013. Ever since I recieved them in the mail a few weeks ago, I’ve been feeling that Spring can’t get here soon enough. I know…it’s only January..in the Northeast…which means we still have a good 2 more months of winter. But I can pretend with help from these Zoya Lovely nail polishes.
The colors and descriptions
Julie: A soft wisteria purple with a touch of metallic shimmer. Coverage is 5 (on a scale of 1=sheer, 5=opaque). This is a cool tone.
GeiGei: Similar in tone as Julie, but a pretty pink…sort of a bubblegum or cherry blossum pink. Also a 5 on coverage and cool toned.
Piaf: This is described as a forsythia (isn’t that the most fun flower name to say?) yellow metallic with a soft shimmer finish. Another 5 on coverage and cool toned.
Blu: A perfect baby blue cream. Coverage is a 5, and it’s cool toned.
Jacqueline: A magnolia cream beige shade cream. Covearge is 5, and this one is slightly warm/neutral toned.
Neely: A soft muted spring green cream. Coverage is 5, and this is cool toned.
My first impression when I saw them all in the bottle was Easter – like an Easter basket and perfectly spring! But I wasn’t feeling the look of Piaf – just in the bottle, I didn’t think I’d like it, but I decided to start off with Jacqueline because it seemed like a nice nude. This one actually surprised me, in that I don’t like it that much. I don’t really dislike it, but I have other nude colors that I think look better with my skin tone or something. I think I prefer nudes that are more on the taupe/grey side, and this one’s more on the cream/yellow side.
Here is Piaf – again, not really a favorite, but I felt it wasn’t as bad looking on as I thought it was going to be.
Blu – I liked this one if you’re looking for a baby blue cream.
Neely is a spring green – sort of a vintage feel about it
And the last two are my favorite..I felt the finish was a lot easier to not mess up as much…though I’m just not the neatest polish apply-er either. I liked just the hint of shimmer these both had. Here’s Julie, which since it’s purple, I knew I’d probably like it. It really reminds me of the purple “grass” you find in Easter baskets.
And finally, my #1 pick of the collection is GeiGei – just a nice classic light pink – would make a pretty wedding nail color!
