Zoya Naturel 3 Collection

Zoya Naturel 3 Collection Pictures

Third time’s a charm! 

The Zoya Naturel 3 Collection, which includes six new neutral shades and three lipsticks, is set to release on December 15th.

This is Zoya’s third instalment of beautiful, creamy neutrals that are meant to complement a wide variety of skin tones.

For a professional and polished appearance, you can’t go wrong with a neutral nail, and the Zoya Naturel 3 Collection colours make great ‘nail-palate cleansers’ in between when you wear the sparkly, saturated, and vibrant shades.

Seeing how Zoya nail polishes are named after women (and some have unisex names), I was wondering when they would come out with a nail polish named Mary. Hehe, and they finally have for this collection! 🙂 (Does Zoya have a nail polish named after you? If so, have you worn it?)

Although I was hoping for a green nail polish (hehe, you know my undying love for green manicures), they came out with something that I didn’t expect – a raisin, which is a shade that I haven’t experimented with much. That will be interesting to see in person! (Judging by the promotional images, it seems that the brown has a touch of raspberry warmth, so it may not be a straight-up chocolate.)

See the rest of this post for more information and pictures of this collection!

The Zoya Black Friday deal is valid only for Consumer Accounts in the USA.

Although I’m Canadian and have fellow Canadian readers, I’m still sharing this because I also have many American readers who’d love to take advantage of this awesome promotion! Fingers crossed that next year, Zoya will include Canadians!

EDIT (November 23, 2016): Zoya decided that they’ll be extending the Black Friday deal to Canadian Consumers, too! YESSSSS! (Standard Canadian shipping and international fees apply.)

Zoya Enchanted Collection Swatches & Review

Zoya Enchanted Collection Swatches

The Zoya Enchanted Collection for Winter/Holiday 2016 is like the Little Drummer Boy who doesn’t miss a magical beat!

Although green nail polish makes my heart race, I can’t seem to pick an ultimate favourite out of the bunch.

Featuring four new textured lacquers in the popular PixieDust formula and two shades with a fun flash of colour, the Zoya Enchanted Collection makes a great stocking stuffer for the nail junkie on your Christmas list.

They all offer great pigmentation and full coverage with just two coats. Additionally, the top-notch formulas were what I have come to expect from Zoya. (This brand’s consistent!) They glide on easily. The shimmers are effortless, and the PixieDusts apply evenly.

As with most textured nail polishes, the PIxieDusts dry rapidly, which makes them a great choice for when you need a quick manicure and to be out the door. They’re also easy to remove, so you won’t need to scrub your poor fingers.

Zoya certainly hits a home run with this collection. There’s not a single dud among them, in my opinion. There’s a wide variety of colours, which helps to appeal to people with different preferences, and even if you don’t care for textured nail polishes, just slap on a layer or two of a thick glossy top coat to get a glass-like finish.

I really like how this collection doesn’t scream, “Traditional Christmas!” with lots of reds. I enjoy reds, but sometimes it can feel too predictable for a holiday collection.

If you’d like to learn more about the colour story, check out the official Zoya Enchanted Collection press release that I published on the blog a little while ago.

What do you think? Would you have preferred to see a red here, or are you also happy that the Zoya Enchanted Collection offers something a bit different?

Zoya Brynn Swatches & Review

Zoya Brynn Swatches Review

Zoya Brynn is a flamboyant pink from the Sunsets Collection that I love so much!

As you may already know, pink nail polish isn’t my favourite to wear, however, when I do sport one, I prefer it to be as vibrant as strawberry punch. (Yes, I’m clinging onto the last bits of summer as much as I can, even though autumn has my heart.)

P.S. If you’re looking for fall shades, be sure to check out my swatches of the entire Zoya Urban Grunge Collection: the One Coat Creams and the Metallic Holos. (You will fall madly in love with it, as I have!)

P.P.S. I’ve been quite busy lately, but I’ve been checking out the wonderful comments that you’ve left on the blog. Will get around to replying this weekend! Don’t worry – I haven’t forgotten about you. (That’s not possible!) Thanks for your support, understanding, and patience.

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection Swatches (One Coat Creams)

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection Swatches One Coat Creams

The Zoya Urban Grunge Collection train keeps on chugging along!

Today, I have a peek at the second half, the One Coat Creams, which will be available to purchase on Zoya’s website starting August 15. (If you missed yesterday’s post, I shared with you swatches of the other half of the collection, the Metallic Holos.)

All of them applied like a dream and were indeed creamy as advertised. Highly opaque and shiny, you could get away with using a single coat, but out of habit, I applied two coats of each colour for my swatches.

These have the formula and pigmentation that I’ve come to expect from Zoya. They’re very consistent.

Mallory (blue) and Wyatt (green) were my favourites from the collection because they pack a colourful punch. However, be prepared to spend a little extra time removing Mallory because I found that it tends to get on your skin and cuticles. (After removing as much as you can, washing your hands several times will help to lift most of the blue.)

I also really enjoyed the vampy hues in this collection, Tara (purple) and Courtney (red) because they scream autumn to me.

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection Swatches (Metallic Holos)

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection Swatches

Oh my stars – the Zoya Urban Grunge Collection Metallic Holos are a sight to behold!

Officially launching on August 15 on Zoya’s website, the collection features an intense twinkling effect without the chunkiness you’d get with glitter.

Make sure you have something to wipe down your computer or cell phone because, if you’re like me, you are going to drool over these sparkly wonders.

All of them come alive on your nails and ignite like a crackling fire. They’re the kind of nail polishes that can distract you easily and make you check out your nails throughout the day.

Merida (green), Finley (purple), Britta (plum), and Ash (red) were my favourites from the Zoya Urban Grunge Collection because they were rich shades that pop!

The formula on these was excellent. I only needed to use two coats for all of them to achieve full opacity, with the exception of Alicia (silver and gold), which I used three coats.

As per usual, the pigmentation and consistency of Zoya nail polish is consistent and top-notch. They were all smooth and easy to paint with – as easy as cremes! They also have a forgiving formula, so you can paint over the same section a few times to even things out.
