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.
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.
