Zoya Naturel Deux

Good morning!  I know you've seen these on many a blog already, well now it's my turn!  The Zoya Naturel Deux collection is a set of 3 delicious browns and 3 stunning berry creme polishes!  The brown shades remind me of rich chocolates (which is why I created chocolate drizzle nails with there - you can see it HERE) and they berry's are the perfect feminine and sweet polishes to bring us into the Fall season.  I wanted to see how the Deux set held up to the original set so I did a couple comparisons at the end of the post.  The Naturel Deux collection is available as a set for $54 or individually for $9 a bottle.  

*PRESS SAMPLE*


Up first I have Madeline, "a full-coverage muted, rose cream."  I love the light shade, it's sitting somewhere close to mauve territory but in a good way.  The formula was creamy and smooth and it applied like butter.  I used 2 coats of Madeline and no topcoat.  




Aubrey is a "full-coverage, medium mauve cream."  I definitely see Aubrey leaning more berry toned, but there is definitely some mauve in there as well.  Again, perfectly creamy and smooth formula that literally applied itself.  I used 2 coats of Aubrey and no topcoat.  




Marnie is the deepest of the berries and is a "full-coverage, deep warm plum cream."  Marnie is rich and a little dusty and all kinds of gorgeous.  There are some brown undertones in Marnie which I think helps with the richness of the shade.  Fabulous formula and perfect application.  I used 2 coats of Marnie and no topcoat.  




Moving on to the brown shades, this is Spencer.  Spencer is a "full-coverage, rich camel cream."  This warm nude looks like a rich and luxurious camel coat.  I think it's the perfect neutral for any outfit.  formula and application were both amazing.  Very creamy and buttery.  I used 2 coats of Spencer and no topcoat.    




Chanelle is a "full-coverage, toasted almond cream."  Chanelle makes me hungry because she looks like melted milk chocolate.  This color is so beautiful and like Spencer, luxurious.  Just a touch above a neutral but I still think you could wear this with any outfit.  The formula and application were both fabulous - smooth, creamy, buttery.  I used 2 coats of Chanelle and no topcoat.   




And last but not least is the delectable Emilia.  Emilia is a "full-coverage, dark chocolate cream."  Indeed it is.  This is the other brown that really made me hungry!  This beautiful polish is so decadent  in color and formula.  The creme is amazingly buttery and smooth.  Also shiny!  I used 2 coats of Emilia and no topcoat.  




I did a couple comparisons between the Naturels and the Naturel Duex's just because I wanted to see how they matched up.  None are the same but they are so complimentary to each other!  I'm eager to use the sets together for some lovely nail art now.   For the pictures I have on 2 coats of each polish.
