Zoya Whispers, Transitional Collection 2016

Good morning dears!  I'm heading out the door to meet up with some of my running friends to take an easy trail that goes by Levi Stadium!  It'll probably be the only opportunity I'll get to see the Super Bowl 50 decorations up close because once we're taken over by fans it's going to be nuts!  So while I'm off running you can enjoy this post.  I've got the Zoya Whispers collection which is a transitional set, something to tide us over as we wait for Spring.  It's full of soft, creamy (almost crelly formula) polishes.  You can purchase the Whispers collection now, each polish is $9.  So let's go ahead and check these out!

*The formula on all of these is a bit strange - not a creme, not a crelly, somewhere right in between.*

Up first is Cala, a soft nude that leans a little yellow on my skin-tone.  The first coat was sheer, and I would have loved it that way but it was also streaky.  I needed 3 coats to even it out but still had some patches.  Overall the formula was shiny but not my favorite of the set.  1 finished with a layer of topcoat.

April is a a neutral light pink.  This color is so soft and pretty but it was another that was a bit tricky.  Sheer (which would be ok on it's own) and streaky.  I really wish it wasn't streaky because the first coat alone is really pretty too.  I used 3 coats for full coverage and to even it all out.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.

Eastyn ended up being my favorite of the collection.  It's a greyed out purple.  It's a beautiful wash of color that still has a nice neutral feel.  Actually this color is very earthy.  And yay, the formula and application were both aces!  I used 2 coats for full coverage and a layer of topcoat.

Lake is a beautiful pool-blue polish.  The color is cool and refreshing.  Formula and application were both fabulous.  I only needed 2 coats for full and even coverage.  1 layer of topcoat used.

Ireland is a light mossy-green that nicely fits the name.  I enjoyed the formula and application of this one, creamy and opaque and no issues to report.  Actually you can see one little spot on on my ring finger so I probably should have gone for a third coat.  But I didn't think this one was very flattering on me.  I topped it off with a layer of topcoat.

And rounding out the collection is Misty.  This is a taupe shade, kind of reminds me of safari wear.  I only needed 2 coats for full coverage.  Finished with a layer of topcoat.
