Zoya Spring 2015 Delights Collection
Today I have for you the new 2015 Spring Delights Collection from Zoya. These shades are just perfect for Spring and I am hoping that by me wearing them it will encourage Spring to come a little early here in Minnesota (LOL).
This collection consists of 6 polishes, there are three cheerful creams and three turquoise flash metallics for an updated, flirty way to wear pastels! All in the full-coverage, long-wearing, Big5Free* formulaZoya Nail Polish is famous for.
Here are the shades in this collection. On the metallic ones I decided I was going to try out my new macro lens for my camera and test it out. I thought that it would give you a nice close up of that metallic flash that they have.
The first one up is going to be Rayne. Rayne is a dewy, spring blue with an energizing turquoise metallic flash. This one just reminds me of a beautiful icy blue. I may try using 3 coats on this one next time I wear it because I can see that I do have some visible nail line and I usually prefer to not have any. This color is so beautiful and I bet would be wonderful for some Easter nail art.
Next up is Lillian. Lillian is a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish. This is such a pretty blue cream. It's almost like it's got a bit of a dusty blue to it. I noticed in brighter light it looks more crisp and clean. Beautiful and wonderful to work with this one!
This one is Tiana. Tiana is a palette-cleansing ‘pistachio gelato’ green in a glossy cream finish. This is actally very pretty and I was surprised I liked it because I don't usually do greens. You can see in my pictures that it was a little streaky but that could have been because I did uneven coats. I'm sure if I had done a 3rd coat that the results would have been much better.
Here is Daisy. Daisy is a refreshing ‘lemon merengue’ yellow with a turquoise metallic flash. It is a little sheer, as you can see I do have visible nail lines but it is a really pretty color. I love the metallic flash in it. I wish I had been able to capture it better with my camera but I just wasn't able to.
This is Leslie. Leslie is a soft spring lavender with a turquoise metallic flash. On me this one leans a little more pink than lavender and I can't figure out why but it must be either my lighting or my skintone.
he last one in this collection is Eden. Eden is a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish. I think that this one is my favorite of the collection. It is just a gorgeous shade of pink that to me has a bit of lavender in it (just the ever so slightest bit).
All of these had Zoya's amazing formula and I didn't have any troubles with any of these. I used 2 coats for all of these and Eden is the only one that I photographed with a topcoat. I did feel like Daisy could have probably been better with 3 coats and next time I wear it I think I am going to do 3 coats. I also think that Tiana could have been a 3 coater as well. You can see in my pictures that at 2 coats it's a little streaky. Not to worry though, just add a 3rd coat and you are good to go! I also want to note that I at first glance thought that Lillian and Tiana were very similar to Blu and Neely but when I further studied them there is a couple slight differences in them. I may do a comparision post on them one of these days.
Zoya polishes retail for $9 for regular polishes and $10 for any of the PixieDust line. You can purchase Zoya polishes at Ulta stores, select salons and as always Zoya's site. I don't believe this collection is available at Ulta stores yet but don't fret, it will be in stores before you know it!
