Zoya Naturel Satin Collection

Good afternoon!  Hope you are enjoying your Friday and have fun or relaxing plans for the weekend. I don't think I have Saturday plans but of course Sunday will be soccer filled.  Well hopefully you aren't too busy to take a gander at my post today.  I'm featuring the Zoya Natural Satin collection, I know there have been so many posts already but like I said earlier today, I am playing catch up right now.  I try to avoid reviews of polish I have also because I don't want to be biased, but this collection was pretty hued up and it was hard to not look.  So far I've heard mixed reviews but I stayed open minded and found the collection very refreshing and unique.  The finish is not matte - which I initially expected and would have preferred.  But I did find the soft satin finish nice.  It's not glossy, nor was it chalky.  Zoya recommends to use basecoat, 2 thing coats of the satin shade and NO topcoat.  These do take a little longer to dry so patience is key.  I think we should go ahead and check out each individual color now...

Ana is a "light tasted almond creme."  It's a perfect neutral color for any time of the year.  The first coat was a little streaky but it leveled out nicely in 3 thin coats.  I would only suggest that you not overwork this color when applying to avoid bald spots or gooping up.

Leah is a "lavender tinged taupe cream."  It definitely read more taupe/grey on me but I totally love the color.  Cool, fresh, easy to wear with anything.  The formula on Leah was easier to work with, I only needed 2 coats for full coverage.

Brittany is a "rose mauve cream."  This is a lovely pink toned polish that is very lady like.  I liked this one in the bottle, but not so much on my nails.  It's a shade that makes me feel like my fingers are dirty.  The formula and application of Brittany were both great.  I used 2 coats for full coverage.

Sage is one of my favorites in the collection.  It's a "mossy sage green cream."  The color is soft and fresh feeling - like I'm outdoors taking a huge breath of clean, crisp air.  The formula and application of Sage were both perfect.  I used 2 coats for full coverage.

Tove is another fabulous color.  It's a "misty slate grey cream."  Slate is exactly the word that came to mind when I applied this one.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 2 coats of Tove for full coverage.

And rounding out the collection is Rowan, "a suede taupe cream."  I think this one is actually my favorite.  Rowan is a very wearable brown that will be a nice neutral for many occasions.  It was creamy and easy to apply.  Great formula.  I used 2 coats of Rowan for full coverage.
