Zoya Petals Collection Swatches & Review


Zoya Petals Collection

Hello readers,
Today I have the new Zoya Petals collection to share with you. This collection features some classic spring shades with modern finishes along with an effects top coat to transform any shade. Lets take a look a closer look at the new polishes.

Laurel

Laurel is described as a warm pastel with the slightest hint of sheen.  The formula was quite sheer and patchy which made it difficult to work with.  I used three coats, with the third being slightly thicker to achieve this finish.  Photos show three coats of Laurel with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Tulip

Tulip is describes as a pure pastel salmon creme with the slightest sheen.  It had the same difficult formula as Laurel and I had to pay careful attention during application.  Photos show three coats of Tulip with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Azalea

Azalea is described as a classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash.  The formula on this one was very easy to work with.  I used three coats but if you have shorter nails or a less distinct nail line two will be enough.  I did experienced very light staining so make sure to use a good base coat with this shade.  Photos show three coats of Azalea with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Zahara

Zahara is described as a brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect.  The formula was very easy to work with though slightly sheer with my nail line still peeking through after three coats.  Photos show three coats of Zahara with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Aster

Aster is described as a fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia to create a dewy.  To me the flecks look closer to a silver fleck than fuchsia, but still very pretty.  This shade had the best formula of the collection.  I used three coats but if you have shorter nails or a less distinct nail line two will be enough.  Photos show three coats of Aster with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Leia

Zoya Petals Collection Zoya Petals Collection

Leia is described as a sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold.  I used this as an effect top coat and the formula was great for that purpose.  I found that over light shades, the base shade was still the predominant colour with the flecks catching the light and adding shimmer..  Over dark shades the fuchsia flecks tend to dominate and you can see a shift to gold when at an angle.  Photos show one coat of Leia over left to right: Zoya Pinta, Natty, Evvie and Bevin with one coat of Zoya Armor top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

There were some hits and misses for me in this collection.  I wanted to love Tulip but the formula just didn't do it for me.  My personal favorites were Aster and Zahara.  I also really love the look of Leia over lighter base shades.  This collection is available on http://www.zoya.com.  You can also find Zoya on


Happy polishing,

Michelle
