HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY!!

At the beginning of the year, Zoya launched a beautiful set of nudes, ranging in shade from ivory to a chocolate milk shade in their Naturel Collection. What’s there not to love! Six new full-coverage shades of complementary neutrals with a pink undertone so they can be worn alone or together for slight tonal accents.

The lightest shade in the collection is Chantal, described as a French Vanilla creme by Zoya. A perfect description! Often shades this light or white-based can be a bit streaky, but Chantal did not streak and needed only two coats for great coverage. You could add a third coat if you felt compelled, but I loved it at two. Below it is with only base coat and 2 coats of Chantal – no top coat, and look at that shine!

Zoya_naturel_ChantalChantal leaned a bit lighter than nude due to my olive complexion, but as you can see, still extremely flattering. It has a slight peach undertone and I feel that it would suit almost any complexion.

Seeing how well the shades coordinate, I tipped Chantal with the darkest shade for a gorgeous contrast – Chantal with a French tip of Normani:

A slight step up from Chantal is Taylor, described as a light toffee creme shade. I found Taylor to be more of a yellow-based nude. This one reminded me of a yummy café au lait… and again, I loved it on me. It may not be as versatile to pinkish skintones as Chantal though. Again, two coats were perfect but you could easily apply three thin coats. Below, 2 coats, no top coat:

Zoya_naturel_Taylor

One of the mid-tone shades is Rue, described as a Boudoir Blush Cream. Rue reminded me of a soft rose satin camisole… very romantic, very pretty, and a colour for almost any skintone. Application was a breeze with 2 coats and no top coat:

Zoya_Naturel_Rue

Just a touch darker is Brigitte, described as a Bombshell Mauve Cream (how sexy is that description!). Another beauty and a pink-y mauve. Two coats paired with a French tip of Chantal below (look at that shine):

Zoya_Naturel_Brigitte_ChantalI love these two together!

Odette jumps quite a few tones to a dusty purplish shade, described as a Sultry Maroon Cream. This formula was classic Zoya – thicker than the lighter shades of this collection, self-levelling, beautiful and drying to an incredible shine! Two coats below:

Zoya_Naturel_Odette

Odette strikes me as dustier version of OPI’s I’m Feeling Sashy, non?

OPI_MU_ImFeelingSashy2

And finally, we have Normani, a Sable Mauve Cream (I really love these Zoya descriptions!), a cool, dusty, greyed-mocha with a mauve undertone. I absolutely love Normani! Formula-wise it was exactly like Odette. Two coats below, no top coat, and look at that crazy shine:

Zoya_naturel_Normani

I think it’s pretty clear how I feel about this collection… totally obsessed and loving every shade! Not only are these colours on-trend and gorgeous, but they are highly office-appropriate, even when paired in soft nail art like the French manicures I’ve shown. And Zoya’s formula is divine. I think these will be added to my go-to Zoya stash that includes Natty, Sailor, Rockie, Josie… the list goes on…

Zoya Sailor is an absolutely spectacular dark navy creme polish from Zoya’s sultry Cashmeres collection for Fall 2013. It was one of the standouts for me from the creme portion of the fall release, and it is perfection in person!

After wearing it for a few days, I was too tired to do a new mani, so I decided to touch up the tips to freshen the tip wear. I reached for the beautiful and dusty Natty, a shade often compared to Sailor. Was it a dupe? Nope, definitely not a dupe. While Zoya Sailor has more of a true blue base, darkened to a navy, Natty is dusty: it’s a steely deep blue that made for a soft contrasting French tip.

Here are two coats of Zoya Sailor, a few days old, with a free-handed French tip of Zoya Natty:

Because this was such a quick touch-up, and I originally did not have the intention of posting about it, I only have my iPhone photos! So I apologize for the less-than-perfect quality. 🙂

Here is the collage I shared on my Instagram of this mani:
